The Best Of America

For all of the complaints about The United States, there is something to be said for our idealism and our belief in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

History was made today as the supreme court ruled that same sex couples have the right to get married and receive the same privileges as their heterosexual counterparts.

Marriage is now defined as two adults (regardless of sex) who are ready, willing and able to make a public commitment to each other.

This is not the first landmark case to make history. The ruling carries as much weight as the 19th Amendment (giving women the right to vote) and Loving V. Virginia (the landmark civil right case that broke the anti-miscegenation law that existed in several states).

While we have a long way to go, the fact that this is now the law of the land paves the way for the true democracy that our founding fathers envisioned when they made the bold and dangerous decision to break away from Britain.
