Racism; There are No minorities in America.
Only the bigotry of of Religious and Ethno Chauvinism.
Classism; There is NO Income Inequality in America.
Only Envy created by the limitations of Institutional Entitlement.
Americas problem: Individuals Not Thinking for them selves.

What gives anyone "Constitutionally" the right to decide if adults can marry one another or not. And where in the constitution would this power come from, since the concept of marriage is a biblical custom, and it just happen to creep it's way into US common law. For the state to set boundaries, "arbitrarily" on the gender of the individuals involved is a personal contract between consenting adults. The only cultural boundaries being crossed, are religious customs that provoke the conservative sensibilities of the faithful.
I think it is overreaching for the state to cross these lines further. The rights of all citizens are paramount and must be respected, and the happiness of any individual is their own, and not the business of the state or the community at large.

The argument over income inequality would suggest, that people with mediocre talents be rewarded equally to their more tallented counterpart. The practice of socialism is truly regressive. Historical evidence suggests socialism never guided a civilization towards prosperity. Empathy is a noble human characteristic, but can be extremely divisive when used in name of "Fairness". Such a measure only interrupts liberty, and to date has shown no evidence to the contrary. Using class and envy against citizens is a strategy, which has disrupted prosperous societies in the past, and will diminish our chances for a prosperous future.

Not voting, does not forfeit my right to complain and express my feelings publicly.
But I am considering not vetoing, for the first time in 30 years.
It's a shame people like Barack Obama only care about the votes they do get,
..not the ones they can't get.
Again, that's a shame. Because that absolutely divides people and culture.
His overbearing confidence that masks a condescending attitude that breeds envy and decent among neighbors, deepens that divide.
Not voting is a difficult choice to make. Because of religious conservatism has become just as distrusting, as the socialist progressive movement is. But, not Voting may mean that I am giving up on my Liberty, the liberty that means every thing to me.
I do not want promises and the bounty of someone else's labor, just that my Liberty be protected, and not be traded for trinkets like healthcare, abstract concepts of living wage or religious customs like marriage to be defined. Just Liberty
Who will protect Liberty, if they only care about votes
