    IMO: Marriage, "gay" or otherwise, is an issue that should have never been addressed in federal law. It's a states rights issue.

    i voted Republican for 50 years. With the exception of our fine sheriff, last election i voted against all the incumbents except POTUS. In OK one has a choice of two presidential candidates on the ballot; no write-ins allowed. i left that one blank.

    In 1980 Lee Atwater decided that fiscal conservatism was no longer in vogue. He came up with a laundry list of feel good stuff and pawned it off as "conservatism". According to Atwater, we needed Constitutional amendments to outlaw gay marriage, flag burning and a host of other stuff. The so called "American Values Agenda" paid big dividends until the election of 2006 when the magic ran out.
