    Why do they hate us sooooooo much? Do they think we are going away anytime soon, corral us into certain states? icon_rolleyes.gif

    On Tuesday, Cruz re-introduced the State Marriage Defense Act, which would prevent the federal government from asserting its own definition of marriage on the states.

    "Even though the Supreme Court made clear in United States v. Windsor that the federal government should defer to state 'choices about who may be married,' the Obama administration has disregarded state marriage laws enacted by democratically-elected legislatures to uphold traditional marriage," Cruz said in a statement announcing the bill.

    "I support traditional marriage and we should reject attempts by the Obama administration to force same-sex marriage on all 50 states. The State Marriage Defense Act helps safeguard the ability of states to preserve traditional marriage for their citizens," he said.

    He's such a smarmy prick. I detest him and his pandering to undereducated mean-spirited people.

    Whenever I see his face, I start to itch. He's made a few points in the past that I've agreed with but I just don't think he's serious about half the stuff he says. I keep thinking that he's really just a con-artist pretending to be a hard core conservative so that he can make money. I really don't care for that guy at all.
