Thank you for reiterating what I posted. If you read those articles again, you will, in fact, see very clearly that they acknowledge that states are the entity that delegates voting rules.
Not registrars, county clerks or court judges. States.
The Constitution doesn't guarantee American citizens the right to vote. It provides limited protection, defining issues for which states can't deny someone the right to vote. Those are race, gender, age and poll taxes. Voting, like many other issues for which Americans are convinced they have a constitutionally protected "right", is, in fact, a privilege, not a right.
Otherwise, refer to Article X: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Article 9 and 10 are both very clear. The rights are retained by the people.

The fact remains that a heterosexal marriage in any State is valid in every other State. To deny gays and lesbians that same protection is unconstitutional.

<quoted text>yet the supreme court seems to think it is a right, and the 15th amendment clearly states it is a right.
seems you don't know quite as much as you think you do. yes, the states have some leeway in their regulation of this right, and yes, all rights are regulated, the 1st amendment rights. 2nd amendments rights...etc,etc....but it is a federal right nonetheless...not a privilege in any way.
civics courses are fun!(this one was free..)
Better check the 15th again.

AMENDMENT XV

SECTION 1.

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.

SECTION 2.

The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

I suspect you mean the equal protection clause of the 14th and that "15" was a typo.

Here's some proof of my "opinion" from the very liberal LA Times.

My opinion is you have a finger in each ear while yelling LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA!
Conversing with people like you is a waste of time.
Congratulations on beginning to see the difference between fact and opinion. You article states that household incomes went down during the recession; fact. Now in whose administration did the recession begin? It was Bush's administration; it is he and the Republican's economic policies you should be blaming. It is easy to blame Obama since the recovery has been long and painful, but you just may owe your job to the efforts of the Democratic White House. Congress certainly has done little. Seems all Republican efforts are aimed at repealing Obamacare (40 votes in the House?!) see:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/02/gop-...

and insuring their rich friends retain all their tax loopholes (Facebook making almost a billion dollars yet instead of paying taxes they get a refund in the millions!) see:

http://www.ctj.org/taxjusticedigest/archive/2...

Now that you have started seeing the difference between fact and opinion start looking at the bigger picture instead of someone's spin.(Did Fox actually state "Obama fails to keep North Korea from testing an atom bomb" as their lead into the news of their test? Yes, they did. Why didn't they state "Bush fails to prevent terrorists from destroying the World Trade Center"? You know the answer to that question.)

SCOTUS already explicitly ruled that there is no federal right to vote in Bush v. Gore. Did you miss that part ???
Did you email Alan Dershowitz or the ACLU and ask them yet ? Or is that too time-consuming for you ?
I'll let the stack of money on the podium do the talking on the issue.

<quoted text>Which political party was in control of both houses of government when the economy went south? By 2006, George Bush couldn't do anything without the approval of Nancy Lugosi and Pinky Reid. They were the ones who started spending us into oblivion and who turned a blind eye to the housing bubble. The democrats HAD to win the White House in 2008 or right now there would still be some democrat politicians serving time in jail. Obama gave them cover and the media turned a blind eye to the corruption.
Opinion until you provide verifiable sources. Republicans suck.(My opinion.)

No. Look it up. While Cheney was VEEP he publicly came out for marriage equality, YEARS BEFORE The Obamaniac reluctantly did.
Maybe you should look it up and learn just what he said.
He said he supports a person's right to choose their own mate irregardless of gender. He also said that he does not support a federal mandate on SSM. His stand has always been "leave it up to the states", when it comes to allowing SSM. His daughter Liz's stand is the same, and she is running for the senate.

Sorry. Hate to disappoint you.... again, but there's no such thing as an "idiot liberal." You see, unlike conservative views which require nothing but a knee-jerk reaction, one has to be able to think and have a certain amount of intelligence to become a liberal. So keep shouting your little oxymorons if it makes you feel better, but realize that it just makes you look really stupid.

The term "idiot liberal" is obviously redundant.

Correct. The news broke the story that his youngest daughter was a lesbian so he was forced to take a stand or opinion on the matter.

Cheney didn't know what gay was before his daughter came out. Only then did he acknowledge gays in a positive note. It probably kills him to this day. He never promoted the gay agenda, he simply acknowledged it.

"It’s no great secret that military studies have proved again and again that there’s no valid reason for keeping the ban on gays. Some thought gays were crazy, but then found that wasn't true. Then they decided that gays were a security risk, but again the Department of Defense decided that wasn't so-in fact, one study by the Navy in 1957 that was never made public found gays to be good security risks. Even Larry Korb, President Reagan’s man in charge of implementing the Pentagon ban on gays, now admits that it was a dumb idea. No wonder my friend Dick Cheney, secretary of defense under President Bush, called it ‘a bit of an old chestnut’."

1993, former AZ Senator and Republican Presidential candidate Barry Goldwater, in the “Washington Post"

While I don't want to defend Dick Cheney, he is among those conservatives who have been aware anti-gay prejudice is irrational, for a long time.

Sometime ago, I was in a bookstore and saw a book displayed which was a biography of a famous man. I read the back of the dust cover and decided that whoever wrote this biography didn't know what he was talking about for 2 reasons.

REASON NUMBER 1: World War II was the fault of homosexuals, who planned it, the author claimed.

REASON NUMBER 2: It was a biography of Adolf Hitler, and the cover of the book prominently displayed his name..... spelled incorrectly.

LOL

(I have another amusing Hitler story also.:))

What do you mean "another"?
There has to be a first funny one for that to be.
