Same Sex Marriage

It seems that congress is about to vote on a constitutional amendment to ban same sex marriage. How lame are the Republicans on this issue. They say, “Don’t you dare limit my right to have guns! But let’s limit someone else’s right to file a joint tax return!” There has never been an amendment to limit rights, only to expand them. I hope this next election has a backlash against the religious ridiculous right. Just for the recond, I’m a progressive capitalist, in the spirit of Henry Wallace.

  1. If the was a toldyouso.com…
    There is no chance that there will be a constitutional ban on gay marriages. Will not happen. There are a ton of reasons, but the most important is that it will lose more votes for republicans than it will gain. So let it be written, so let it be done.

  2. Senators voted 50 to 48 against a call to cut off debate, 12 votes short of the 60 required and even below a simple majority of 51. It would have taken 67 votes to approve the amendment itself. The loss effectively ended a drive to move the proposal through the Senate before the November elections. Six Republicans helped block the amendment, illustrating the divisions in the party ranks over the idea of inscribing such a ban into the Constitution.

    I am never wrong, never ever.
