Politics where a majority is involved, by votes or by electors, leaves such vulnerable to sway due to arbitrary circumstance. Morality on its own is subject to change over time, and determining the morality or legality of something by arbitrary circumstance ("saying X was okay back in some year Y due to Z"), whether in the present or in the past, is not a logical argument. Deriving laws from the fundamental ideals of any given nation is concise and much more consistent.

As somewhat of a moral nihilist, I think the point is moot.

I'm on your side! Morality/ethics should be determined from first principles (the foundational axioms of propositional logic)
