Equality - Terminated!

So, the jubilation that justice was being done in granting California’s lesbian and gay couples the right to marry may be short lived, as Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has announced he’ll use his power of veto to terminate the bill.

According to the BBC, State legislators voted on Tuesday to allow same-sex marriage in California, but the governor said the decision flew in the face of public opinion.

Excuse me?

Aren’t State legislators elected to office? Aren’t they ultimately responsible to the electorate?

When an action hero declares he’s the new law in town, that’s fantasy.

But when a governor decides to use his veto supposedly in the name of the public against the wishes of the elected legislators, that’s not “the will of the people”, that’s dictatorship!
