We want The People to vote…until it might actually be legally binding.

April 6th, 2006

Why is the Left in favor of letting people vote directly for things that don’t matter:

Non-binding advisory referendums on the war in Iraq

But dismayed by the possibility of them voting directly for things that actually do?

Wisconsin’s Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment

I changed the headline of this post to more accurately reflect what I meant when I wrote it.

    The anti-Gay marriage Amendment may matter to you but it doesn’t matter to me. I does not make my marriage any better nor does it accomplishes anything other than send a message or intolerance.

    But the non-binding referendum on Iraq atleast sends a signal of opposition to a war that has taken thousands of lives and hundreds of millions of tax dollar money. It is just a matter of how you look at the situation.

    The question works both ways.

    Why pitch representative Democracy overboard for a turd like TPA but ignore the anti-war vote?

    Somewhere in the middle is the truth.

    So then guys, you’re in favor for letting people vote in non-binding ways on any subject, but against letting them vote directly for anything that would actually have the force of law?

    Oh, I see.
    I wrote a bad headline.

    I didn’t mean “matters” as in “has value.”

    I meant “matters” as in binding…actually having the force of law.

    Sorry for the confusion.
