Walker warned the amendment's sponsors may not have standing, or status, to make the appeal because they were not affected by the stay.

This "standing" thing has become a hammer to beat up those who would participate in the culture wars.

If the very sponsors of the amendment that was overturned by the judge do not have "standing", then it appears to me that the concept of standing has problems that the malicious use as a club.

Of course "we" have no standing. How dare we as mere mortals set government policy that is contradictory to the personal preferences of the Lords who rule over us?

They probably don't because I can't see how they can show damage.

But regardless, it doesn't make any sense to me to have a process where your state constitution is amended through a popular referendum only to have that amendment declared unconstitutional. If your constitution says something then isn't it by definition Constitutional?

That the Attny Gen - Jerry Brown will not fight this gives Meg 5% increase in voters, not because of the “war” but because people are sick of government not listening.

And the two candidates for governor will not appeal either.

These comments say the people don’t matter because who are the ‘people’ in the final analysis? It is government that has standing, not the ‘people’? In federal court the state government is the sole representative of its people?

It boggles the mind but this ruling can only be overturned if the people recall the governor or pass a veto proof resolution for the governor to appeal?

The people have no standing because ‘people’ is not a recognizable legal entity in federal court outside of state government standing?

Revolution is coming, it must come.

In general, I think the whole “standing” thing has become “shut up, you peasants have no say in what we elites are doing.”

The "ruling class" seems to think that since "they know better" we will just be good boys and girls and obey. I think in the end they will be shocked at the response.
