Will The California Supreme Court Mortally End The Democratic Process?

The slippery slope to absolute judicial tyranny is one step closer in California if activist judges overrule the California Constitution and the will of the voters on the issue of marriage.

The California Supreme Court just heard arguments on the constitutionality of Proposition 8, an amendment to the Constitution passed by voters in November. Proposition 8 amends the Constitution to define marriage as a union of one man and one woman.

There is more at stake than just traditional marriage and the centuries long definition of the family. The California Constitution’s amendment process cannot legitimately be overruled by the California Supreme Court. This becomes an absurd and tyrannical exercise in illegitimate power if the Court decides that voters have no right to amend their own Constitution.

Even Supreme Court justices are not above constitutional law and thus the rule of law is at stake here.  This whole process is now in jeopardy and the sovereignty of the people’s vote on such amendments could totally be destroyed.

The Democrats – and only Democrats -- in the California State Legislature have passed two resolutions authored by two openly homosexual San Francisco Democrat legislators blatantly calling for the California Supreme Court to overturn the recent voter-approved amendment to the state constitution restoring marriage for one man and one woman only.

The two resolutions now make it the state’s official position to strike down Proposition 8. Prop 8 was the voter-approved constitutional amendment that declared “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” This amendment passed with the support of over 7 million voters, which accounted for 52.3% of the vote on November 4, 2008.

These resolutions are part of their heavy-handed agenda to impose homosexual marriages upon California in spite of the vote to define marriage as a one man, one woman union.

The California Supreme Court narrowly ruled in mid-2008 that homosexual marriages were “legal.” The very same people elected to represent the will of the voters are now trying everything they can to undo what their constituents approved in Prop. 8.

If the California Supreme Court rules that amending the Constitution is itself unconstitutional, then it will be clear that democratic government has died in California – and that the citizens of that great state are being ruled by a lawless judicial oligarchy.
