    With Australians preparing for a national plebiscite on same-sex marriage, we visit Ireland – where it was legalised on one side of the border two years ago – and listen to different sides of the debate.

    Must be nice to have a say in government. Here in the US we voted dozens if not hundreds of times to reject this bastardization of marriage. Our rulers decided otherwise.

    yes yes I know. As I said Americans cant be allowed to self govern. They mess it up...right? And liberal oligarchs have to fix it by ignoring their votes.
    Must be so tiresome being a liberal elite and constantly having to undo what the American people wrongly want.

    I am ashamed at the state of American education displayed by your post.

    We don't have rulers in the United States- despite what you have learned from Stormfront and Alex Jones.

    But we do have a Constitution, and a Supreme Court.

    And just like the Supreme Court overturned the unconstitutional bans on mixed race marriages, it also overturned the unconstitutional bans on same gender marriages.

    P.S.- we don't have national plebiscites in the U.S.

    And now people in love can get legally married. Hopefully Australia will follow suit.

    Shame you hate the Constitution so much that you think that Americans should be able to ignore it.

    Must have really pissed you off when the Supreme Court overturned those state laws forbidding mixed race marriages....

    Why should your vote matter? The Supreme Court says that self government fantasy can be ignored.
