An Updated No Taxation without Representation
Melissa Etheridge has issued a statement declaring that if California does not grant her the right under the constitution to marry that it extends to its heterosexual citizens she will not pay her taxes. Logistically, I'm not sure how this will work, but I applaud the sentiment. The recent defeat of Prop. 8 reaffirms something I've believed a long time: same-sex marriage cannot be a state issue. It will have to be addressed at the federal level, much the same way Civil Rights had to be addressed at the federal level.
