Powerlessness of the majority opinion
I’m really confused about how the legislative system works. We voted and the “people” voted against gay marriage. Then the issue resurfaces in the House and Senate.
It reminds me of the abortion issue. When the country voted on possible legalization of abortion in 1972, the populace said “no.” But, with finagling of the law, it was brought before the Supreme Court as a personal freedom issue the next year and passed there.
So, why did we vote?
