If most Americans believe it is the right thing to
do, then naturally, most Republicans will be against.

Like background checks to buy handguns. Ninety per-
cent of American are in favor. Most Republicans are
against.

But Boehner and McConnell claim to speak for all
Americans.

But they do, didn't you get the memo? Only registered Republicans qualify now, everyone else, no longer American.

Funny thing about "Gay Marriage". In the,what,15 States it is recognized only a very few States had it approved by the VOTERS. In fact,in California(certainly not a Conservative hotbed)the voters shot it down. TWICE. And the ACTIVIST courts reversed the will of the constituency. In essence telling the voters to go f**k themselves.

Bunny, when the "will of the constituency" is to violate the constitutionally guaranteed rights of some in that constituency, our Constitution empowers the Courts with the authority to tell them to go f**k themselves. Ever hear of the concept of the "tyranny of the majority", well our Constitution protects folks from that. Something you will quickly learn to appreciate if you are to ever find yourself outside the "will of the constituency". Simply because the voters approve of a ballot question, if it in some way violates the rights guaranteed us by the US Constitution, it does not make it any more acceptable than if your legislators screwed up like that. Guess what, this isn't even the first amendment to the California Constitution to get the heave ho, let alone the first state amendment quashed. The Supremes have even told much larger majorities than you got in your "will of the constituency" to go f**k themselves. It's how our constitutional system of governance works, you should have taken better notes in 8th grade civics.

In what state were women given the vote in an election? Where was a vote taken to desegregate the schools, or free slaves?

It's hilarious, for all their babbling about "we're a republic, not a democracy!" the far right is for mob rule when it comes to marriage equality.

Ask the far right if there is any equality in their
"republic." Do citizens have freedom of speech?
Do they have the right to vote? Is there freedom of
the press? Freedom of assembly? If the morons
answer that they have those things in their "republic,"
then it's a democracy.

The sad fact is that most of them don't believe in any
of those things because they have to include equal rights
for minorities and far rightwing nuts do not believe in
equal rights for minorities. No way, Jose.

In other words, they are at heart, fascists. Pure and simple.

Thank you..... It seems the minority has NO problem forcing on the majority THEIR assumption of "rights". But Heaven help the majority of society if they don't want such abberant deviant behavior blatently paraded in their midst as normal.

For all you pole smoking fudge packers on here who have a problem with people who don't care for your "lifestyle",GFY. I'm SURE you can manage it anatomically....

Boys, boys, boys, if you don't like the idea that our Constitution guarantees our rights no matter how big the majority you can find at the ballot box, you are always free to find yourself someplace where your rights won't be protected if you were to suddenly find yourself in the minority. Didn't you stay awake in 8th grade Civics? You should know this is how our system is designed to work. You're just sounding like whining, sore losers.
