re: #213 SanFranciscoZionist

What when the majority wants to ban gay marriage? Interracial marriage? Abortion rights? Birth control? Short skirts? All kinds of other stuff that you can list until the cows come home?

Ah, I was wondering if anyone would notice that I picked the more tame examples instead of your list. In most of those things, it is unworkable for a small, enlightened clique to force its will upon the majority. The lesser of 2 evils is to keep local control despite the occasional bad judgement. If you want gay marriage, your faction must campaign for it and turn the minds of 50.01% of the population. Otherwise, you have to be like Obama (or myself) and split the baby. Gay marriage advocates can get referenda passed today with the term ‘common law marriage’ or ‘domestic partner’ or some other made up thing. OR they can bang their heads against the wall and lose every referendum and get nothin. It sounds dirty, but just do a deal now, then work on hearts and minds til you can get the rest.
