Careful what you wish for…
A federal judge threw out Oregon’s same-sex marriage ban Monday, marking the 13th legal victory for gay marriage advocates since the U.S. Supreme Court last year overturned part of a federal ban. State officials earlier refused to defend Oregon’s voter-approved ban and said they wouldn’t appeal.
The National Organization for Marriage sought to intervene, but both U.S. District Judge Michael McShane in Eugene and a federal appeals court rejected its attempts to argue in favor of the ban.
Again and again, not only are the moralities of a people denigrated, but the legalities of a system are decimated. Over and over again we are fooled into thinking the right of the people to decide by vote is of the highest standard, that it is the hallmark of our political system. Valid constitutional changes voted and approved by the people of respective states have opposed homogamy, and yet they’ve been dispensed with by judges wielding assumed executive power. More states have allowed homogamy through the ruling of judges than through the ballot box, and as this trend continues the pressure of its adoption will certainly force remaining states to back down. The only popularity of homogamy is in the oligarchical rule of judges and the mass media, certainly not in the opinions of people.
At the risk of repeating myself, there is no democracy in America, only oligarchy. Whatever may be convenient to the state, whatever immoral, can be aptly decided and instituted by government without opening a single voting poll. It is a distinct evil. If voting can decide anything at all it marks an individual’s preferences to be measured, tracked and targeted by the state. It may seem an encouragement to those homogamy supporters as each state’s “voter-approved ban” falls. These are small, temporary victories indeed. Where will the clamor come from when the judges decide against us all and there is no recourse at the ballot? That day will some soon enough when the leviathan the politic homosexual has wished for will turn on them as it will turn on all of us.
