I typically do not use this blog as a place to make political statements, but today I make an exception.
Tax-paying citizens should not be denied basic rights. It sets a scary and dangerous precedent of government oversight when a not-so-large majority of voters in a non-general election vote can determine who gets rights and who doesn't. I will never understand why some people are so determined to take away the pursuit of happiness from their fellow human beings. It makes me incredibly sad.
The last line of the Pledge of Allegiance says "with liberty and justice for all". While the majority of voters in North Carolina may not believe in that, I am so proud that we have a President who does.
