It looks increasingly likely that Obama will win a second term, if possibly by a tight margin. If the Democrats also win a majority in Congress, then DOMA must be repealed. No more excuses.
It is examples such as this that demonstrate why same-sex marriage is so unfair. The most powerful country in the world and it still has it’s head up it’s 19th century arse.
Three places that currently have same sex marriage Iowa, Washington District of Columbia and New Hampshire have still not helped to challenge the bans on same sex marriage in the Supreme Court – since Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York State and California have done so!
The US needs to look at the effects same sex marriage has had on countries like the Netherlands and Canada. Where beyond those who have gotten married, the effects on the rest of society have been – well … nothing.
I make a call to my american friends to to do the utmost to have DOMA repealed.Some people don’t understand that what the USA does has consequences in all the world.This would set a good signal worldwide and would do a terrible blow to the anti-equality movment worldwide
