Well, the Supreme court has ruled on, or should I say, avoided controversy, with the California Prop 8 decision.
The court decided that those who were bringing the case to the court did not have standing to do so, and let a lower court'(s) ruling that the proposition was not legal stand. Sound familiar? This is what I said would happen many times during the debates with those on the fringe.
We will hear many say that the will of the people will not be honored. This isn't a Democracy, its a Republic. We are a land of laws that are written by representatives who are elected to that position by the people of the nation. The "will of the people" as it has been called, is just a momentary opinion of a group of citizens in this state. An opinion that is contrary to our laws and our principles of liberty. So since we are a Republic, these opinions are not law, and do not rise to the level of being a law, because they are contrary to our Constitution.
There is a small but vocal group in this country that feel freedom and liberty is defined by them, and is only for them. These people may have been born in this country, but they aren't Americans in their beliefs. They desire to control others so they can be comfortable. Unfortunately for them, this brilliant 200+ year old system the we have is still strong enough to support the principles that have been a hallmark of this country.
With the passing of this court's decision, marriage between any two people who choose to live as one, will be legitimate in the State of California once more.
Welcome to America, the home of the brave, and the land of the free. Let Liberty ring out!
