Anyone familiar with the events leading up to the 26 June 2012 Supreme Court decision on Obamacare cannot possibly have any doubt that Chief' Justice John Roberts has been blackmailed by Barack Obama. And once again, Roberts has come through for the President and for the rest of the nation's queers. The result of this SCOTUS inaction will be that 11 States will be coerced by federal judges to accept queer marriage – an institution that they, through their elected legislators, have already rejected.
This is an untenable situation. Our last line of defense, the Supreme Court of the United States, has reneged on their responsibility to enforce the Constitution and has left us to the mercy of radical judiciary activists who think their warped ideas of "social justice" trump the law of the land.
We must fight back against this illegal usurpation of the Constitutionally guaranteed right of the States to decide their own destinies. The law is not created by federal judges. It is not even created by Congress. The law has already been created – it was created in 1791 when the States ratified the Constitution of the United States.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz is leading this fight with a promise to introduce a Constitutional Amendment prohibiting the federal government or federal courts from meddling in State marriage laws.
While Ted Cruz is one of my favorite fellow Texans, I would remind him that the Tenth Article of the Bill of Rights (the Tenth Amendment to the pre-Constitution of 1787) already guarantees the States that immunity. Obviously, it is being deliberately and flagrantly ignored. Therefore, to attack the problem with a Constitutional amendment would seem to be like roping a dead steer.
The Supreme Court actually got it right. They were quite correct to refuse to rule on State marriage laws, because they don't have the right to rule on State marriage laws – and neither do federal appellate courts or federal district courts. Rather than amend the Constitution, what we've got to do is enforce the Constitution as it stands – at the State level.
We must pass legislation in all fifty State legislatures obviating the jurisdiction of federal courts over any State legislation treating of matters wholly contained within the borders of that State, and affirming the final authority on the Constitutionality of such legislation to be the State Supreme Courts.
I am working on getting such legislation passed in Texas.
