Poll: Should the U.S. Supreme Court legalize gay marriage in all 50 states?


The U.S. Supreme Court was hearing arguments yesterday stemming from cases in four states: Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee.
 
At issue are two main questions: Whether states should be allowed to ban same-sex marriage, and whether states should be forced to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.
 
Gay marriage became legal in New Jersey in October 2013, and is permitted in 36 other states and the District of Columbia.
 
A ruling is expected in June, and many observers believe there's a good chance the Supreme Court will say marriage is a constitutional right for gay couples, making it legal in all 50 states.
 
Do you think same-sex couples should be allowed to wed everywhere? Vote in the informal, unscientific poll below.

    Well, of course... Are we not people in those fifty states? If they don't... then, why don't they exempt us from paying those taxes that sustain those governmental system in which we cannot participate in legally binding marriages? Fair is fair. We grease the machinery that allows straight people to get married... but WE CAN'T?

    Nope... It should legalize it in all of its fifty states and the rest of its territories!

  3. Gay marriage should be legal for all taxpaying American citizens.
