In Wisconsin, it is the same old story … federal judges usurping powers from the state legislatures:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Same-sex couples began getting married in Wisconsin on Friday shortly after a federal judge struck down the state’s gay marriage ban and despite confusion over the effect of the ruling.
Clerks in Madison and Milwaukee began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples shortly after 5 p.m. Friday, a little over an hour after the judge released her ruling. Judges were on hand at both courthouses to perform ceremonies…”
Note: Don’t bother to vote.
There’s no power in the ballot. If our rulers dislike the law, they will just impose their will by executive fiat as in Cap-and-Trade or the DREAM Act, or failing that a federal judge will overturn the will of voters, and if that fails politicians like Rand Paul can always be auctioned off to the highest bidding oligarch like Sheldon Adelson.
