Only in America!

Here is a list of some of the problems facing our great nation:
  • 1. A war with no end in sight
  • 2. A rising federal deficit
  • 3. A slowing economy
  • 4. An increasing divide between the rich and the poor
  • 5. Many Americans cannot afford adequate Health care for their families or themselves
  • 6. An education system that is failing a majority of our children

    Just to name a few. There are many more, and what do the Republicans who control our Congress decide to focus their attention on, GAY MARRIAGE or THE FEDERAL MARRIAGE AMENDMENT, as they like to call it. Let's put aside the fact that this is bigotry at its worst, let's put aside the fact that many of the Republicans who are the largest supporters have had more failed marriages or mistresses than they can count on one hand. Is this really an efficient use of government time?

    Would a real conservative government meddle into the private lives of their constituents? Isn't this the big government interference that we have heard conservatives yell about before.

    Democrats need to stand up against this bigotry, throw it back in their faces for the next election. I can't believe that the majority of Americans believe that this is what their elected officials should be using taxpayer's dollars to debate this amendment. Will the Democrats grow some balls, we will have to wait till November to find out.
