I am mostly indifferent to the issue of gay marriage. However, I sincerely wish that the way in which it was achieved was not from the oligarchy which is the Supreme Court, rather, from the democratic process and from the popular vote of the people. I would have been even more so in agreement if it would have continued leapfrogging from state to state, leaving it a localized and state issue. Instead, as it did with the Obamacare decision yesterday, the Supreme Court blatantly legislated from the bench, becoming slave to popular opinion as well as the whim of the POTUS’s opinions.
The Supreme Court was established to be as disconnected to public opinion as possible. In no way is public opinion to be influential in the Supreme Court’s rulings. Justices are supposed to adhere to the Constitution and those Amendments to the Constitution in judging legislation, not molding it and developing it to their liking. The Supreme Court is no longer an entity removed from the biases of public opinion. It has become an oligarchy, not a interpreter of law and Chief Justice Roberts is the ring leader of the circus.
Again, largely indifferent to the issue of gay marriage. Just so disappointed in how it was achieved and that the power to change and adapt was largely usurped from the American people and put into the wrinkly hands of 9
