  •  He needs to tell his bigot buddies (0+ / 0-)

    If Scalia, Thomas and Alito understood people power and the Constitution we would have more 9-0 or 8-1 decisions. It's the obstinance of these right wingers fighting people power that cause the 5-4 decisions Roberts claims to detest.

    •  Funny... Is that what they were doing (0+ / 0-)

      when they for instance upheld the Partial Birth Abortion Act?  they were fighting people power?  I thought people passed that law?!

      •  People power is in favor of reproductive rights. (0+ / 0-)

        As it is for fundamental marital rights.

        •  Really? (0+ / 0-)

          That statement is based on precisely what?  The result of votes? Because last I checked, all states but Arizona, when given the opportunity rejected same sex marriage.  

          •  Bigotry is wrong regardless of "votes" (0+ / 0-)

            And don't forget the right wingers suppressed people power votes in these states. Bigotry is not something that should be determined at the ballot box, but rather by enlightened individuals.

            •  Oh, so its not "people powered" (0+ / 0-)

              It is "people who agree with me powered."  I see.  And when was the date that you got appointed Lord Overseer of Good and Enlightened?

              •  The fundamental people powered right (0+ / 0-)

                For LGBTK Americans to marry whomever they want to marry should not be subject to ballot boxes where voter supression of people power is systematic. When it comes to fundamental marital rights, we must not allow any hate speech to flourish. We prevent it at universities and on stage and screen, we should not allow it elsewhere.
