What does it say about the United States and its people when we now are told the upcoming presidential election may be determined by what voters in six or seven so-called swing or pivotal states think about gay marriage?
President Obama has come out and touted his strong personal support of gay marriage. Whether or not the timing of this belief was done to gain votes, gain major fiscal contributions or raise a controversial issue to distract attention from far more serious matters is unknown.
However, many political pundits, both Democratic and Republican, claim there was strong partisan political motivation for Obama’s announcement. They were quick to suggest the gay marriage issue could play a major role in how voters will cast their votes in November.
Aren’t there far more serious issues facing this country, such as the runaway national debt, unemployment and underemployment, immigration, national security, dangerous trouble spots around the globe and this nation’s economy?
Will voters in six or seven swing states end up electing our next president based on which candidate favors gay marriage?
If that is the case, the future of our country is in far greater danger than most citizens realize.
