"Undocumented Lawyers and Rogue States"...really, "The Nation"?

Link Here, with the sub-headline of "So far, 2014 has been a year of states doing as they please." The thing is that states have been doing what they want for several years, and people have been mighty upset about it--because it's been things like banning gay marriage and restricting abortion rights. Now that proposals from the left are being approved, suddenly rogue states are great....provided the Supreme Court shoots down initiatives from the right on the local level. 

Democracy, which I firmly believe in, is not about playing favorites. It's about reflecting the honest views of the people. And if you want the good, you've got to take the bad as well. Otherwise, you're a rank hypocrite, and an authoritarian in disguise who only likes democracy when it serves your purpose.
