What Words?

Traitorous? Seditious? Anti-Constitutional? Tyrannical? Fascist? Not to mention hate-filled, homophobic, hypocritical, stupid, dangerous, and deeply unAmerican.

... Fearing a huge setback to their cause, opponents of same-sex marriage, including some of the major contenders for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, are darkly warning that they will not "honor" an adverse Supreme Court decision. Some are calling for civil disobedience. Others are moving to strip the Supreme Court of its authority to decide whether gay couples should be allowed to marry, while others have questioned whether the court has that jurisdiction in the first place. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has said that such a decision would be "fundamentally illegitimate."
Those who are merely calling for a new constitutional amendment to enshrine marriage as between one man and one woman now seem almost quaint in their desire to use the ordinary constitutional process to counter the Supreme Court...
The article goes on to quote many prominent Republicans, including several of their presidential (chief law enforcer!) wannabees, all of whom happily demonstrate their lack of understanding of how our democracy, with its checks and balances, works. Or maybe they do understand but just, in the end, don't like it. Don't like it one damn bit. Because what's the good of government, anyway, if you don't always get your theocratic narrow-minded uninformed way? (These are, of course, the same sort of people who accuse President Obama of being a tyrant.)

These are undeniably awful people, who haven't the least idea about what makes America great, nor, despite their flag waving, love for its most fundamental principles. And it's time their teabagging voters woke up to what's going on and put a stop to it.
