    I bet we've got some here who would support an amendment to repeal the 14th.

    Right here. When "Independent" women marry the government and vote to use force to extract wealth from me and direct it to them so that they can be independent women who don't need men then they're misusing the power of their vote in a way that the Founders never intended. The nation wasn't set up as a frigging commune where people share their income with others via government redistribution.

    If women can't vote responsibly then they shouldn't vote. Sad for the women who do vote responsibly though.

    Ive linked the book before, but here it is again.
    Wrong Why experts keep failing us--and how to know when not to trust them Scientists finance wizards doctors relationship gurus celebrity CEOs ... consultants health officials and more David H. Freedman 9780316087919 Amazon.com Books

    Just read a story today in Discover magazine how when a number of cancer cell lines for scientific study were found to be misidentified,the scientist who propagated them sent out 69 letters to other scientists to cease using them, only 2 replied. 10,000 citations a YEAR are using studies made from these faulty cell lines. Now this is in an area of study that is very fact orientated. Studies about how well kids do in gay-marriages I think by nature are less objective.

    Well some leftists..............I consider myself a leftist..........but you are right in that the gay-marriage advocates are pushing this idea less on law and logic than on emotion.

    So, the 14th amendment only guarantees equal protection for races? I'm sure that all of the women who have sought the 14th amendment protection on several issues will be thrilled to hear that; as will the disabled, and non-Christian religious,. That is a very interesting, if somewhat limited, view of "equal protection" you have there, pal.

    Okay. So, no study ever can be trusted is your contention? That's convenient, as that means that you can then ignore any empirical data that doesn't happen to fit with your personal world views.

    Yeah...I think we're done...

    The rights granted by the population are not subject to popular vote. You can not vote away free speech. You cannot vote away free press. You can not vote away the right to own a gun. You cannot vote away the right to a fair trial. You cannot vote away equal protection of the law and due process.

    An independent jury is as much a check on the voters as it is on the government. The constitution trumps any popular vote.
