Traditional marriage is the law in California. Like Florida, California voted to reaffirm this happy fact on the same day as it voted (in Florida’s case, decisively) for President Obama. And the State Supreme Court has now said so definitively.
Just as Democratic America has the pro-life majority that Republican America never had, so the Democrats owe their pre-eminence to the supporters of traditional marriage in California and Florida. To the opponents of deregulated gambling in Missouri and Ohio. To the opponents of legal discrimination against working-class white men in Colorado. To those who keep the black and Catholic churches (especially) going from coast to coast. And to an increasingly large chunk of the white Evangelicals.
It is time to put away the childish things of campus pseudo-radicalism from the year before yesteryear, and instead to get on with the Pregnant Women Support Act. With the Employee Free Choice Act. And with all other aspects of the restoration of America as the land of big municipal government. As the land of strong unions whose every red cent in political donations buys something specific. As the land of very high levels of co-operative membership, not least including housing co-operatives for the upper middle classes. As the land of small farmers who own their own land. As the land that pioneered Keynesianism in practice. And as the land “not seeking for monsters to destroy”.
