    can fix all this.

    •  Likely would not pass (0+ / 0-)

      as of now. I've seen polls saying the demographics have changed since the Prop 8 vote.  Perhaps if California swung to the right again in the future, an initiative restricting gay marriage could pass.

      •  well, by "all this" (0+ / 0-)

        I was thinking more along the lines of creating standing for initiative proponents. All we have to do is pass an initiative that gives standing to initiative proponents. Et voila! Nobody will have to worry about standing issues anymore!

        •  Ah I see. (0+ / 0-)

          I know you might have been snarking too.

          But I'm not sure if I want standing for random initiative proponents.

          Also wonder if today's ruling would overrule any state law giving anyone besides the state's executive

          Anyway, thanks for the exchange
