@6: Who appointed the SCOTUS justices who voted for Obergefell?

Reagan appointees: 1
Clinton appointees: 2
Obama appointees: 2

You can deride both Clintons as much as you'd like, but the simple fact of the matter is that if a Democrat hadn't been in the White House from 93-01, this never would've happened.

The court is going to look very, very different in eight years: Scalia's seat will have been filled, Kennedy will likely be gone, Ginsburg will almost certainly be gone, and Breyer will likely be gone.

If a Republican is elected in November, that will mean that future Obergefell cases are decided *7-2* against us.

If a Democrat is elected in November, future cases will likely be decided 6-3 in our favor.

That's what's really at stake here: corporations as people, money as free speech, a woman's right to choose, gay rights, minority rights.

Your protest vote might make you feel good, but it'll make a lot of people (yourself included) feel really fucking bad for the next 20-30 years.

But seriously, it sucks to be an under-21, especially when most people you interact with are over-21s. Sean's suggestion seems spot-on.

@1: "Yes In My BackYard." As opposed to a NIMBY.

@5 Holy shit, maybe the vote was *RIGGED* in Bernie's favor in order to throw us all off the scent of the Shillary campaign to *STEAL* our election!
