    to give you...but YES!

    this is one of my primary, angry complaints:

    you can't take away fundamental rights on a majority vote.  Imagine if voters, by a majority vote, tried to amend the Constitution to say that gays and lesbians could not teach in public school.  The Court would hurl the proposition out so hard that it would make a dent in the Capitol Building.  This sort of constitutional revision requires 2/3.

    i would like to think it would get struck down quickly if passed, but i'm doing what i can to avoid that all together.
