Hey everyone in California who voted for Prop 8.... get ready to see just how useless your votes are.
Court to hear arguments against the ban on same sex marriage
the money quote from the article was this.
All three cases claim the ban abridges the civil rights of a vulnerable minority group. They argue that voters alone did not have the authority to enact such a significant constitutional change.
the people don't have the authority. i'm no poli sci major and i don't have a law degree... but i seem to remember something about the power to make and enforce ANY law comes from the people. Lawmakers have power only because WE THE PEOPLE (i've seen those 3 words written on some important document i could've sworn) grant power to individuals who are there to enforce the will of the people. I guess i'm just talking out my ass.
