Mary Cheney is no better than Liz is no better than Dick. A vile stew.

Dick Cheney never supported marriage equality.

He said adults should be able to enter into whatever contracts or relationships they want to.

In a country or state without marriage equality being able to enter into a contract would not imply or confer marriage benefits.

This is obvious.

And anyway you don't see "Dick" Cheney doing anything for our cause. Obama has done a whole lot for our cause.

The Obamaniac has done NOTHING for us. He says he supports us, yet he not only does NOTHING for us, but has actively worked AGAINST our fight for equality.

SOMETIMES Republicans support equality when the negative aspects of inequality hits them over the head, but apparently some would still rather sell out to the baser parts of their "party" instead of supporting family members. No wonder they're so screwed up.

And still no legitimate governmental interest sufficient for denial of equal protections of the law as required by the constitution.

But that is because there are none.

WRONG !

The relevant portion of the 14th Amendment is: " 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."

It does NOT say: "nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws except if there is a legitimate government interest."

You just make this stuff up as you go along, huh ?

Yes, Obama only recently (early May, 2012) flip-fl...er...evolved to support same sex marriage when it became absolutely (politically) necessary.

Cheney voiced his support in July of 2009.

I didn't make anything up. I simply read the words: "without due process of law."

I also know, whether or not you or I like it or agree, you can't say anything you like anywhere you like. Other restrictions have been found to be constitutional, while many others have not passed that test.

Liz Cheney said last week she is "not pro-gay marriage" and believes the issues of marriage should be left up to voters in their respective states, not to judges or legislators. Problem is SCOTUS has ruled that such rights CAN NOT be put to a vote.

ARTICLE VI

This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

AMENDMENT IX
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Now about voting on civil rights:
SCOTUS Majority opinion:

West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette 1943

"The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections."

oddly enough, the right to vote is not explicitly written out in the constitution (as many of our rights are not) the first mention of the right to vote is in the amendment describing why that right cannot be abrogated...
