Ted Cruz wants feds to stop meddling in same-sex marriage debate

Feb 13, 2014 Full story: CBS News 577

why are you such a shitty citizen that you don't even know your own constitution?
Where is it in the constitution pookie. Marriage isn't a right, it is a legal contract that is regulated and performed under state law.

I guess we should all get to fly in circles and play golf under the equal protection clause you are trying to bend.

The Constitution does not list all rights. The Supreme Court is the arbiter of what is or is not a Right. And they have stated numerous times that Marriage is a basic right of all citizens. I'm not sure how many times, but I have read there are 14 cases of this, one being Loving. I'm sorry if your education did not include a basic Civics class, but such is the state of our educational system, I suppose.

Already refuted.

No one is waiting for you to admit you have it wrong.

Not even in those 14 swing states.

Yes when it involves one man and one women. You left out that part.

BS. We should all enjoy the same fundamental rights as citizens. You are a nasty piece of work disrespecting the most important relationship of my life.

They expanded on that a little in Windsor. And in the next year or two we will probably see them become even ore specific.

The constitution clearly states that those rights not specific to the federal government go to the states. Quit trying to break the constitution. You want a civil war you need not send out invitations.

But the Supreme Court does have the power to state what is a Right. And those Rights must be available to ALL citizens, not just the "in" crowd of the moment. And because of that the Supreme Court must step in and declare that the Right of marriage must be available to all. The states may have the duty of administering marriage, but they must do so in a way that does not show animus towards certain groups. And the Court has been, and will continue to see that that is what is done. I cannot believe that for as long as you have been on these threads, that still has to be explained to you.

The 14th amendment doesn't make that distinction.

I am sure you still find giving the vote to those black folk trouble too, eh, AuDumbo?

The Constitution clearly states marriage is a fundamental right and states don't get to decide which fundamental rights they are going to recognize and which ones they don't.

"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

No one has to make you have anything wrong, ScrotumSniffer.

We know you don't have it in you.

Unlike your boyfriend's johnson.

Even when you insisted Romney was going to take all 14 swing states and win the election with 325 electoral votes.
