I am not a political person, but I do believe every person should have the same basic rights under the law. Doesn't matter if they are black or white, man or woman, religious or atheist. Every single person deserves to be treated the same.

Everyone is in an uproar over gay marriage. Personally I don't think it should even be an issue under the law. Just because you want to marry someone of the same sex doesn't mean you should have your legal rights taken away. I don't think the church should necessarily recognize gay marriage, but that is not the issue here. People are touting family values and the sanctity of marriage...if that were the problem then divorce would be illegal too.

People are also so pleased with themselves for having booted out the three "activist" Iowa supreme court judges. Won't make a bit of difference...most of the laws passed by them were on a 7-0 basis so even if three conservative judges were appointed it wouldn't make much difference since 4 is more than 3. Also, how many people know that those judges were appointed by Gov. Terry Branstad...a Republican! Gasp!

The elections are supposedly a referendum on President Obama. Bullshit. Two years ago everyone was mad at the Republicans so everyone voted Democrat. Now they are all mad at the Democrats so they vote Republican. I think being an angry American is the wrong way to look at your voting decisions and the wrong way to run a country.

Just my thoughts...
