    Surely there's a place somewhere on this earth that you could live that better fits your views and beliefs. You should really look into that.
    Unfortunately those places don't want former Americans. I have looked.

    Spend some time and think about what it would do to those around you who care about your sorry ass.

    Congratulations to all of the same-sex couples who have been waiting so long for the tide to turn.

    Please, let's not allow this thread to become all about Tigger as so often happens in these discussions. Stay focused on the result here. The people have spoken and it is wonderful news.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    The country's earlier evolution toward granting equal rights to women and later African Americans/minorities didn't destroy the nation. There's no logical reason extending marriage equality would lead to a different outcome. One would still have the full freedom to marry a person of one's choice with only the range of choice being expanded as far as the laws are concerned. No one would be compelled to marry someone not of one's choice.

    In the end, if the country faces a period of serious hardship or even decline, big factors such as its fiscal challenges, declining relative educational attainment, etc., will shape that evolution. The expansion of marriage under the law won't be a relevant factor. Of course, the country still enjoys the strategic flexibility to overcome the large challenges noted above. Whether its political leaders can come together to make the pragmatic and difficult choices required remains to be seen.

    Hopefully Soon this will be a nonissue. Once the lgb rights are secured, we can work on the T and then once those are secured... I am not sure what I will fight for, perhaps spreading awareness over intersex issues, lots of times doctors play god with them at birth, and the consequences can be severe.

    Bill O'Reilly is right. The country is changing. It's becoming a "Which president is going to give me the most stuff?". And Barack Obama is more than happy to facilitate that desire.... for now.

    Gay marriage, the solution to all our country's ills.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    No. Just doing what's right. For a change.
