This country was founded on the idea that all power was vested in the People. Any power not held by the People cound not be ceded to the government to control or regulate.
If this is true, then when did the People ever have jurisdiction to tell their neighbors that they could or could not marry whoever? We never had that right, yet here today we are demanding that the government afford us marriage.
The issue isn’t THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD LET ME MARRY WHO I WANT.
The isssue is WHY IS THE GOVERNMENT REGULATING MARRIAGE IN THE FIRST PLACE?
Until we realize that the government, especially the Federal Government, has no right to regulate marriage, we will NEVER have equality. There, I said it, now go love whoever you want and quit worrying about the damn government verifying your love.
