“voted on by the PEOPLE, not by the Congress?”
I would sign your petition. I would also be more than willing to support the true will of the people in such an issue, regardless of how it impacts me. That’s democracy. My concern and I’m hoping not to appear cynical, but: many times in many states the people have voted on a bill, and the opposition didn’t like the results so they threw it into the courts and in many cases overturned the “will of the people.” California is a classic case of that with the gay marriage bill. It would also be nice if they wrote the proposed legislation so someone that didn’t go to law school could understand it..
