Protesting democracy

May feel good for awhile, but it accomplishes little: "Several Gay Marriage Ban Protesters Arrested in Clashes With Police in California."

As the Yes on 8 lady notes in the article, the voters have spoken on the matter - twice. What she leaves out is the change in the numbers.

In 2000, similar prop 22 passed by 62%. Prop 8 passed by 52%. In four years at the outside the numbers will invert, and voters will carry the issue - no more contentious rulings that seem to flout the will of the people.

Will ban supporters protest then? Unlikely.
