My immediate family is the only set of republicans out of all of us, both my mother’s side and my father’s side. The rest are Demos (with a capital D!). My relatives are too liberal for me to stand listening to and my parents are too conservative for me to say anything to.
I dislike being the only one who actually agrees with things on each side. I dislike being called a fence-sitter. I dislike being told that being moderate means I have no opinion whatsoever, that I want to be everybody’s friend. I dislike being told what I believe and what I should being doing and what is right and what is wrong.
But I think the concept of marriage, whether homosexual or heterosexual, is a flipping bunch of shit.
One is equally as shitty as the other. And that is the opinion of this fence-sitter.
And yet I respect that there are men and woman who would like to marry one another. I am also perfectly capable of accepting that there are men who would like to marry men and woman who would like to marry woman.
Will legalizing marriage between homosexuals effect those other than the two partners involved? No.

Then what is the problem? --That some people feel the need to run the lives of others. And isn’t that the opposite of what this country is supposed to stand for?
Land of the free. Ha.
I don’t feel this is outright discrimination on the president’s part, though I do feel he is basing his decision on his religious beliefs, which is very wrong. He has every right to believe anything he wishes, whether it is that gays and lesbians should not be allowed to marry; that the sky should be polka dotted; or that Alaskans, Austrians, and Australians should be tied up and shot with paint guns. But those beliefs should remain words and not carried out on the American people if there is no benefit being served to us by doing so.
