And if you look at the laws of that period, 'individual rights' did not include homosexual sodomy. In fact, buggery was punishable by death in many of the colonies/early states. You can say "times have changed", but if "times have changed" that should be reflected by...voting. Again, libertarians are against voting.
Let's rewrite this as... And if you look at the laws of that period, 'individual rights' did not include blacks or women. In fact, escaping a plantation was punishable by death in many of the colonies/early states.
Your argument is just as ridiculous no matter how it is applied. The government has gotten many issues wrong, and it has taken time to get things right on many fronts.
You can say "times have changed", but if "times have changed" that should be reflected by... voting.
Slavery was not repealed by voting. Heck the Bill of Rights did not become the law of the Colonies by voting. It took a heck of a lot of violence to get them respected. Many other Rights came into being thanks to the Supreme Court, such as the Right to Privacy, Miranda Rights, etc. Are you saying that these rights should not be respected, because they weren't "voted on"? (In case you haven't read the Constitution, we are guaranteed a Republic, NOT a Democracy. Voting on issues is done almost exclusively by representatives, not individuals.)
Again, libertarians are against voting.
This is just silly. Do you make similar smears against racial groups? I figured it was the Leftists who enjoyed labeling people, then assaulting the label with untrue and illogical assertions. You must be so proud to use the same kind of tactics that they do.
(In case you hadn't noticed, every group, even Conservative FReepers, spans a wide variety of opinions. It would be just as ignorant to say that FReepers are celebrating or decrying this SCOTUS decision, when clearly, there are many on several sides of the issue.)
