Buckeye McFrog suddenly realizes that there's no point in tilting at this particular windmill:
Thanks to Anthony Kennedy, doing anything about this, IF it is even possible, is going to be a years-long slog.Blood of Tyrants actually uses the term:
Meanwhile the country is about to go bankrupt and the society is about do descent into balkanized chaos.
You’ve gotta do triage someplace. This issue, as important as it is, won’t make the Top 3.
Until the Supreme Court is shifted right by the replacement of one or more of the liberal judges with conservative ones, to fight gay marriage is tilting at windmills.Except almost everything Freepers want is tilting at windmills...
Dilbert San Diego also discovers political viability:
The Supreme Court decision will not be overturned anytime soon by a constitutional amendment or another Supreme Court decision overturning their original decision.Uncle Miltie would like to attack the original poster's sign-up date.
So you have to ask , how much political capital should be expended. I oppose homosexual marriage as much as anyone here, but have wondered, what comes next after the Supreme Court has ruled. Clearly the legal landscape on this issue has fundamentally changed.
Welcome, newbie. For which candidate are you shilling?But Uncle Miltie is totally into the topic:
ISIS, Jobs, 2nd Amendment, Budget, Taxes, National Security, Eliminating Departments,TribalPrincess2U knows the key is the thing that makes her afraid:
man, I can think of a dozen things that should be in the Top Three.
Terrorists first, then economy. All those other unimportant things the left is trying to push on us can just wait.taildragger thinks a flat tax will solve everything!
I said it years ago we didn't need gay marriage but a flat tax to treat gays fairly under the code ( without getting into the weeds I saw it 1st hand ), and no one here got it. Now if Ted gets aboard a flat tax that is a ground up redo of the tax code given many gays are entrepreneurs that also face a 35% business tax, bringing that down to the same flat rate ( or eliminating it entirely ) would benefit us all.NELSON111 has a whole list with guns and 'The Economy' above marriage:
it's not top three. 1) Terrorism...2) Illegal Immigration...3) Gun rights 4) The Economy and run-away spending...5) Traditional Marriage.xzins seems to think abortion isn't a Constitutional issue. Sadly, he's not wrong at the moment.
So...it's not top three. Stopping the tyranny of big government would stop same-sex marriage.
My top 3 would beThe Final Harvest also puts terrorism number one:
Those do not require an immediate replacement of scotus justices
Terrorism, gun rights and stopping the illegal invasion are more urgent issues.Sad little greene66 shows up to proclaim that he'll never compromises in the face of reality:
I frankly don’t expect any politician to make it a priority. It’s a testament to what a depraved, morally rotted populace we now have, which is a fact I can no longer argue against.i_robot73 is all about the Constitutional crisis:
And as long as the sick, evil degeneracy of faggot-marriage is legally recognizied and culturally celebrated with any kind of legitimacy in this country, America itself can truly go burn in hell, as far as I care.
“...the Supreme Court has ruled.”Except it's not clear what Constitution i_robot73 is reading...
Let THEM enforce it = no ‘political capital’ (I detest that term. What a cheap way to weasel out of enforcing and adhering to the Constitution) required.
Congress has the capacity to tell SCOTUS to eat its hat when it comes to ANY topic.Twotone thinks impeaching Justices is super easy:
To lay one’s hope SOLELY at the feet of the President is disingenuous at best.
Congress should be bitch slapping these punks left and right; abolish all other federal courts (Article III, Section 1), and then start over.
The Supreme Court should be forcibly shifted to the right by impeaching Justices who make rulings clearly against the meaning of the constitution.
As much as I’d love to see Ted Cruz as president, I’d almost rather he be the first pick of a Trump administration to replace Ruth Buzzy-Ginsburg. Next would be Mike Lee to replace an impeached John Roberts.
