Here’s something to ponder regarding the Perry vs Schwarzenegger decision.
The people of California voted for Prop 8 in a vote that wasn’t a nailbiter, and the winning side was a racial coalition that did in fact look like America. No one can blame money for this one – opponents actually outspent proponents of Prop 8 by nearly $4 million.
But the people of California’s elected government, in the person of the Governator, refused to defend Prop 8 once it came up for court challenge.
And the unelected judge overturned Prop 8 on specious grounds.
To say that the will of the people has been thwarted here is quite an understatement. Their will was ignored by both their elected governor and the case judge. And now there’s a real question of who even has standing to appeal the case. The Governator won’t do it.
