Remember that name when you go to the polls. He's the one you want to vote for. He's the only sane person in the legislature, the only one is listening to we the people. I suggest you write, fax and call him...let him know we wholeheartedly support his lawsuit and his efforts to uphold our 1998 vote which says marriage is that between one man and one woman only.

__________

Representative Bob McDermott filed a lawsuit today seeking a Declaratory Judgment regarding the 1998 ballot issue pertaining to same-sex marriage. The Governor and many legislators now claim that the meaning of the issue presented on the 1998 ballot gave the State Legislature the power to make all future decisions on same sex marriage.

McDermott, however, insists that the adopted Constitutional Amendment, and official instructions from the Office of Elections, clearly set limits on legislative authority. McDermott further states that the people clearly “thought” they were voting on a legal definition of marriage as between opposite sexes only.

According to settled law, the people’s perception of the meaning of a constitutional vote carries precedence over any other subordinate statutory consideration.

McDermott said,“I was there in 1998 as a member of the State House….a claim few in office today can make. The people thought they were answering the question once and for all. However, the horrible language that was foisted upon the people by the Senate Judiciary committee at the time left us with no choice but to accept the amendment. This explains the mess we are in today.“

The 1998 amendment reads: The legislature shall have the power to reserve marriage to opposite-sex couples. On November 3, 1998, Hawaii voters approved the amendment by a vote of 69.2–28.6%, and the state legislature exercised its power to ban same-sex marriage.

However, the people were told by the Office of Elections in an aggressive 4-week campaign that the meaning of the amendment was at following:

Meaning of a Yes Vote

A "yes" vote would add a new provision to the constitution that would give the Legislature the power to reserve marriage to opposite-sex couples only. The Legislature could then pass a law that would limit marriage to a man and a woman, overturning the recent Supreme Court decision regarding same-sex marriage.(Verbatim Office of Elections instructions)

The point here is that the people thought they were voting on reserving marriage to opposite-sex couples only. Settled US Supreme Court Law affirms that the will or intent of the people on a Constitutional Amendment, when reasonably inferred, supersedes any subordinate statutory language or committee reports

From the article....This is the light at the end of this very dark and very dreary tunnel!!

THE POINT HERE IS THAT THE PEOPLE THOUGHT THEY WERE VOTING ON RESERVING MARRIAGE TO OPPOSITE-SEX COUPLES ONLY. SETTLED IN US SUPREME COURT LAW AFFIRMS THAT THE WILL OR INTENT OF THE PEOPLE ON A CONSTITUTIONAL AMMENDMENT, WHEN REASONABLY INFERRED, SUPERSEDES ANY STATUTORY LANGUAGE OR COMMITEE REPORT

Even though I think your constructive criticism is the shyt you are wrong about this one. It may take some time for this to come out but Bob is as gay as Ricky Martin.
Watch him speak, follow his mannerisms and you will see what I see. Never meant to burst your bubble and there is nothing wrong for backing a man before he comes out of the closet.

I doubt it but even if that were true so long as he's fighting the good fight that's all that matters.

I have nothing against gays just don't force feed it on others, demand special laws, teach that crap to the kids, etc...keep it in the bedroom where nobody cares.

I will not donate one penny to the racist Republican party. It would be a waste of time because soon there will be no Conservative party to donate my hard earned kala to. Go diddle yourself dude nobody else would want to.

Only transplanted folks would vote for this MCDUMMIT guy. If you really want a Republican to win stfckup and maybe he would have a better go at it. Once your name is tied to a candidate all is lost. Your comments sabotage the Conservative but your to dumb to know it.
