CALL THE JUDGE AND OVERTURN THE ELECTION

The people of California, Arizona and Florida have spoken. Proposition 8 was voted on and passed in all three states. The ban on gay marriage had already passed once before and was overturned by a judge. The proposition has again made it to the ballot and was passed in Tuesday's election. Now if a judge can again overturn this decision made by the majority of citizens in the state of California, should we not be able to overturn the Presidential election by an appellate judge? I say YES!

Why, I believe that's what happened in 2000! Certainly not the will of the people.

Nikki, theese court battles are meaningless. It is a constitutional amendment. The courts can not overturn it and will not. I voted for Prop 8. But, here is my reasoning. The California supreme court overreached on this one. The reality is that California was changing enough that if the same-sex marriage advocates would have been patient and engaging with opponents, they could have put the complete opposite innititive on the ballot in about 5 years and it would have passed. And, I would have to live with it and it would be the law in California. These protests are not helping their cause. I am just amazed how many Obama voters voted FOR Prop 8! Hope and Change, baby! Hope and Change!

Tomorrow, I’m posting on the subject of “term limits.” It relates to this post in the sense that when twenty-three states changed their constitutions restricting the number of times congressional and senatorial candidates can run for office, the SCOTUS overturned those laws because they were un-constitutional. So if the odd community believes that they have a constitutional right to matrimony, you can bet they’ll take the matter to the highest court. I believe the issue will center around the Fourteenth Amendment: equal protection under the law. We’ll see.

Nikki,

Really enjoyed that WSJ article on Bush! Good stuff!

The protests are making me kind of sick, actually. The people have spoken.

No Nicki, you would have to prove that the presidential election somehow violated national election laws.

That's a good deal different than having an appeals court rule that the gay marriage prohibition violates equal protection.

But I think it's pretty clear that people aren't going to take this sitting down and if I were a Mormon in California I'd keep a real low profile.

I feel bad for all of those Mormons that wasted their hard earned money. NOT.

Nikki said...

Ducky are you saying Mormons could get harmed by a mob of gays? Sounds like there is a threat to a religious group. Shall we exterminate Mormons like they wanted to do in the 1800's? Nice liberals.

anonymous, grow some balls and own your idiocy.

Duck,

No Nicki, you would have to prove that the presidential election somehow violated national election laws.

Which election laws weren't broken this year? The ones governing voter registration? The ones granting equal access to the polls, even in Philadelphia? The ones prohibiting politicians and supporters like Hillary Clinton from campaigning at a polling place?
