Exactly. So when do I get to vote on who you are able to "marry" and who you are not?
When do I get to vote on black rights? When do I get to vote on womens rights? When do I get to vote on YOUR rights?
You are missing the Point entirely.
Marriage should not be a legal institution.
Here... I have provided a Youtube clip of a comedian explaining this position PERFECTLY:
As you can see... Arguing for "Gay Right to Marriage" is a complete contradiction of terms.
You are not arguing for any right that everyone does not already have.
You are arguing for the Federal Government to LEGISLATE your relationship.
That is not the government's Job, nor should it be.
A government that has the power to GRANT you the "Right" to marry, is a government that has the power to Take that "Right" away.
IF you want to be with someone for the rest of your life... then just DO IT.
Stop asking the government for permission, it is not theirs to give.
YOU have the RIGHT to not have to ask the government for permission to marry ANYONE.
Furthermore, you do NOT have the right to demand special consideration just because of your relationship status.
