“I’m not into politics, I’m into survival” – Arnold Schwarzenegger / “The Running Man”
Even though this quote comes from one of the Arnie’s “Emmy-quality” movies, it could have come from his latest position statement on the court battle being fought regarding Proposition 8, the California constitutional amendment that defines marriage as being between one man and one woman.
The “Republican” governor – I place republican in quotes due to his RINO reputation – filed a written response in federal court Tuesday to a federal challenge of Proposition 8, that is, if you call the decision not to defend the citizens of California a response.
“Plaintiffs’ complaint presents important constitutional questions that require and warrant judicial determination,” Schwarzenegger said. “In a constitutional democracy, it is the role of the courts to determine and resolve such questions. … The administration encourages the court to resolve the merits of this action expeditiously.”
Of course, it’s hard to know what your responsibilities are when you don’t even know what form of government you are operating under. I guess the “Running Man,” isn’t aware that the United States of America isn’t a constitutional democracy, it’s a constitution-based federal republic. Under our form of government, anything not spelled out in the Constitution, is to be determined by the states. And just as over half of the states in America have already done, California determined that they wanted to define marriage, because marriage isn’t something the U.S. Constitution dictates.
For the record, no citizen has the unrestricted right to marry whomever they want. A person cannot marry a child, a close blood relative, two or more spouses, or the husband or wife of another person.
Just recently, the RINO-in-chief played a practical joke on Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, when he sent him a metal sculpture of bull testicles. The gift was a tongue-in-cheek warning that the senator would need to grow some “balls” in order to make the tough budget choices necessary to close the budget gap of over $24 billion facing the state.
The gift was returned, which could be a good thing for Arnie, since it looks like he needs to grow a pair of his own when it comes to dealing with Proposition 8.
