We are no longer a nation of laws. This is not the United States of America as founded.
We are a nation of thugs.
The republicans should now fail to enforce ALL affirmative action laws, union laws, obamacare and abortion laws.
this is the new liberal Alinsky tactic. By not defending the law in court, and based on the Supreme Court saying that nobody had standing to defend Proposition 8 from California, then judges are simply going to automatically rule for homosexual marriage.
Is anyone else alarmed by this tactic, aside from the issue of homosexual marriage? If the liberals get away with this, they can simply get a lawsuit going against a law they don’t like, refuse to defend it, then the court overturns a law becuase nobody has standing. Our legal system is hanging by a thread with liberals doing this.
I’m just thankful that the majority of states, around 35 States do recognize Marriage as ONLY being between 1 man and 1 woman. The majority of states recognize proper marriage, I think same sex marriage can be held off, I think the past year has mainly been a fad with a President trying to push this on the public. Eventually, I think normalcy will return and I think Illinois NOT redefining marriage is the beginning of the tide turning back in favor of Traditional Marriage.
P.S. I say “Traditional Marriage” but make no mistake, I think that is the only thing that is Marriage, 1 man and 1 woman.
We now official are ruled by Pirate Rules - more a set of guidelines to be followed when it suits us.
We are lead to this by our President, as the chief law enforcement presence in the nation.
We can now no longer tell our children the rules are meant to be followed until changed with an appropriate process. Now, they may be taught only to follow rules that they agree should be followed.
The rule of law is over.
‘Sworn to defend the Law of the Land’/ not?
Isn’t it the AG’s legal obligation to do so?
Exactly what the activist “progressive” judges intended. Now they can ram gay marriage down everyone’s throats simply by opting out of defending it, since nobody else will be considered to have standing.
Then she needs to resign. Her sworn duty is to defend the laws of her State.
“The ACLU will also file lawsuits in Indiana, North Carolina, and Virginia”
The people voted overwhelmingly on a Constitional amendment that defines marriage as one man one woman. ACLU can file lawsuits till their blue in the face.
Per the article: Pennsylvania law states that the attorney general may pass her responsibility to defend the constitutionality of state laws to the governor's office or executive branches, should it serve in the best interest of the state.
Be glad she passed on it rather than saying she would defend it in a totally incompetent way.
