So what if we turn it over to the states? The SCOTUS will just wrongly tell us we are being unconstitutional and overrule us. We saw what Mitt Romney did to Massachusetts. The MA courts said it should be up to the legislature, and at that point Romney rode in and by fiat demanded the state issue gay marriage licenses. It was Romney alone who did it there, blazing a trail to where angels fear to tread, Romney the anointed GOP candidate of 2012. Many of us saw through him and we were tarred and feathered for pointing out he was no conservative but was proudly more liberal than Teddy Kennedy. (He said so himself)

If we are afraid to define marriage as what marriage actually is at the federal level, the states will not do it either. They had that problem when the nation was being formed, and dealt with it already. So now we are basically regressing to our former errors.

So will reconsidering slavery be next on the agenda?
