Marriage is another form of government control and over reach.



Marriage tends to help stabilize a society. Therefore, logically, deserves the tax breaks, and "other" advantages available.

It is now equally available to everyone.

It's is not a requirement. You are free to not marry or cohabitate.

Are you asking for special treatment?

Not much he can do on the same sex marriage, it was a SCOTUS issue.


I am pretty sure one branch of of the three is not more powerful than the other two. So Congress passes bill outlawing abortion or gay marriage, and the president signs it into law, even though the SCOTUS has made rulings, they do not matter at that point and the new law becomes precedent. I am pretty sure this is how it works. But maybe I'm wrong.


True, but he can't just sign it away. But then it would go back though the court again.

But case in fact both of those rulings where no good one by SCOTUS. Per the 10th Amendment all laws not directly addressed in the Constitution fall to the people or the states. In both cases they stretched their rulings to cover their agenda.

Again also true. But he still can't just wipe them away.

So was Citizens United. That didn't stop Hillary from using it as a talking point.

I don't think Trump will do anything about it, nor do I think it's a President's problem anyway. Marriage should not have gone to the SCOTUS for that matter, it is a state issue. Not in the federal Constitution, no matter how many 'emanations' and 'penumbras' are created.

And Trump is not a social issues President.


So true. many of these cases should fall under the 10th and be a state issue. Then people can choose what state they want to live in.

Yes, you are wrong.
The bill becomes law, yes. But only until a case involving the new law comes before the Supremes. Then it is shot down because of precedent, which is a term that refers to court decisions, not legislative decisions.

He said that he would leave it up to the states to decide.



Leaving discrimination up to states is a cop out.

We are a secular government.

Thank you for your religious bias.


If the Republicans really want to save marriage they should try to pass a law making adultery a felony.

Adultery is a criminal act in 23 states, and a felony in five of those.

Is it that or does the image of gay men or lesbians having sex blur the image of the man and woman having sex in your mind instead?
