Scott Walker admits, he prefers conservative laws that are Unconstitutional.

Scott Walker admits he would set out to change the rights protected by the Constitution for same sex couples, by passing an amendment that takes away those rights. That's what Republicans call "small government," getting bureaucrats out of our way so we can enjoy our freedom and liberty. No social engineering there, no taking rights away to protect and endorse a religious definition.

The Supreme Court is the final word, say Republicans:

1. Guns: We were all supposed to believe we have unfettered gun rights, because the Supreme Court said so, because the first half of the 2nd Amendment didn't mean anything at all.

2. Corporate Speech: We were all supposed to believe corporations had free speech rights, because the Supreme Court said so. Ironically, anti-government Republicans gave our "people" rights to a government created entity, the corporation.

3. Corporate Religion: We were all supposed to believe corporations had religious rights, because the Supreme Court said so too. Go Hobby Lobby, having dominion over private individuals, their lives and their choices. They still have some freedom and liberty, for now.

4. Same Sex Marriage: We were all supposed to believe same sex couples could marry, because the Supreme Court said so. You know, an affirmation of the mumbo jumbo sighted in the 14th Amendment. What did it say....:
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Not So Fast: But now Scott Walker is leading the charge against the language above.
"The only alternative left for the American people is to support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to reaffirm the ability of the states to continue to define marriage."
Marriage itself sets in motion a complicated maze of state and federal rules and tax laws that cannot be separated out. Turning it into an exclusively religious act would end all that, never mind those who don't practice a religion. The implications are huge and way too complicated for guys like Scott Walker and Mike Huckabee:
Huckabee: "the Supreme Court tried to "unwrite the laws of nature and the laws of nature's God."
And that's the trick. Republicans have been saying this for some time now. Paul Ryan is big on "God's law" before our own man made Constitutional law. Their intentions are obvious, but never talked about: Gods law will provide the slippery slope to deviate from our founding document. Of course, that won't stop any of them from criticizing the infallible, and very "liberal" Pope Francis.

Stephen Colbert pretty much said it all for us:
Stephen Colbert manifested on YouTube to mock the dissenting Supremes: "It's hard to believe that gay Americans achieved full constitutional personhood just five years after corporations did," he said.
