Numero uno - in regards to Prop 8 the people DID directly vote on it.
Numero dos - in regards to representatives of the people they are voted in BY the people. That's how our republic works dipshit.
Numero tres - And this is the biggest miss you've made yet - YOU DON'T VOTE ON FELLOW AMERICANS CIVIL LIBERTIES TO BEGIN WITH you DOLT.
LOL!!! Your schoolhouse must have been the liquor store I swear...
Helllloooooo....McFly....they voted to confirm, not once but twice....."only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California".

The same civil liberties apply to ALL men, and ALL women.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Propo... (2000)

Prior to 1977, marriage was defined in Section 4100 of the California Civil Code. This stated that marriage is "a personal relation arising out of a civil contract, to which consent of the parties making that contract is necessary".[6] While related sections of the law made references to sex, a State Assembly committee that was debating adding sex-specific terms to this section in 1977 noted: "Under existing law it is not clear whether partners of the same sex can get married".[7] That year, the legislature amended the legal definition of marriage to remove any ambiguity. In 1992 the legal definition of marriage was moved from the Civil Code to Section 300 of the Family Code.

When Proposition 22 came before voters, marriage was defined in the Family Code as "a personal relation arising out of a civil contract between a man and a woman, to which the consent of the parties capable of making that contract is necessary" [italics added].[8]

Even though the definition governing who may marry explicitly precluded contracting a same-sex marriage in California, a separate provision, Section 308, governed recognition of marriages contracted elsewhere. This stated that a "marriage contracted outside this state that would be valid by the laws of the jurisdiction in which the marriage was contracted is valid in this state".[9] Advocates of Proposition 22 described Section 308 as a "loophole", apparently forcing California to recognize a same-sex marriage validly contracted in some other state.[10]

To address this, Proposition 22 did not reword the existing provisions of the Family Code, but added to them the declaration that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California".[11]

Wow! No wonder you went gay.
If you ever think of marrying a woman again, find one who hates you and buy her a house and move on. Streamline the process.
He could always go with inflatables, even let it sit on the radiator for a few minutes if he wants a hot date.

What are a "...full set of liberties"?
I MYSELF am not looking to go to a gay marriage but it is a REALITY it is none of my business nor others who wish to intervene.
So don't ask the state to intervene.
These bullshit statements that claim gay marriages ruin families, make little kiddies want to hump stuffed animals and make rasberry Jello go stale among other baseless claims are exactly that - Bull and Shit combined.
To those worthless freaks who claim otherwise your tank is empty - you have no proof.
Let gays marry nationwide and let's look to fix real problems.
GAYS CAN MARRY NATIONWIDE, UNDER THE SAME RULES AS EVERYBODY ELSE! That's part of "full set of liberties". Same rules as every one else, no more, no less. Equal treatment for all.
