WOW! Some Libertarians Cheer Government Rule over Will of The People - IncredibleSubmitted by joeinmo on Wed, 06/26/2013 - 18:50
We usually call these people Liberal rather than Libertarian, because Libertarians usually don't allow emotion to sway them.
The bottom line is we have ways we make Constitutional changes on a state and federal level. We do not cheer Constitutional Tyranny.
The people of California passed Prop 8, the State refused to defend the will of the people, therefore those that backed Prop 8 had to defend it. That is not allowed and that's is why the SCOTUS sent it back to the lower court.
Talk about the equality clause, where is the protection for the will of the people of California?
Yet some Libertarians are cheering the government over the right of the people, people who followed the rules, followed the the constitutional pathway to create a Constitutional Amendment.
I'm sure they would feel different if it were the court voiding the right to smoke marijuana in Colorado.
A dangerous slippery slope is Libertarians picking and choosing issues based on emotion rather than be consistent about the Constitution and the will of the people to overrule their government.
