Remember, during the…
Remember, during the 2000 election, how the Democrats made “the will of the people” the highest ideal in government? Funny how things have changed so drastically these days, when they’d rather let unelected judges essentially pass new law from the bench. Well, when you do that, it raises the bar such that the will of the people has to be expressed in another way outside the normal legislative process. In Missouri, the people have spoken.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Missouri voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment Tuesday to ban gay marriage, the first such vote since the historic ruling in Massachusetts last year that legalized same-sex weddings there.

Although the ban was widely expected to pass in conservative Missouri, experts said the campaign served as a key barometer for which strategies work as the gay marriage battle spreads to ballot boxes around the nation. At least nine other states, and perhaps as many as 12, will vote on similar amendments this year.

The amendment had garnered 70 percent of the vote with 91 percent of precincts reporting.

Missouri and 37 other states already have laws defining marriage as only between a man and a woman. But amendment supporters fear a court could toss aside the state law, and they believe the state would be on firmer legal ground if an outright ban is part of the Constitution.

And this is why there needs to be a federal Constitutional amendment to the same effect; because Democrats have taken to circumventing the legislative process to impose same-sex marriage on a populace that sees the traditional family unit as foundational to civilization. It’s that important.
