American Government is Exceptional, But We've Made It Like Australia

Australia has same-sex marriage now, because their Parliament passed it. America has no Parliament, we have citizens.
Australia's parliament voted to implement same-sex marriage in that country. First, they conducted a postal survey to see how people felt--they were in favor. Then they passed a law in both houses of their Parliament. And it's done.
We should not forget that America has an exceptional form of government, with a federal balance of power and state control of everything not specifically delegated to Washington, D.C. We should not forget about the 10th Amendment.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
Over the years, our government, and the people, have grown accustomed to European-style Parliamentary rule, because we've failed to push back when the federal government overreaches. In America, 31 states have constitutional definitions of marriage, yet nine black-robed judges struck down the will of those people in the name of judicial supremacy, and the interpretation of the U.S. Constitution giving "rights" to people versus "powers" to government.
