Time For A Change, Obama Is Change
– By Taylor Woods –
Equality… what does that word actually mean? In any dictionary, it means the quality or state of being equal. But do you really think people follow what the meaning of the word is? Mitt Romney doesn’t. So don’t ask him for the definition, he wouldn’t know if it was the broad side of the barn. The gay rights act has been a major issue involving the upcoming elections. This is the wedge of all electors and the make it or break it marker for every electoral campaign.
Society has been in this war of American gays having rights for a very long time now. Courtny Roderick says that, “It’s been such a big issue since way back so why fight it? It’s going to continue to happen, even though we continue to fight against the rights.” And it is doubted that it will stop being a political fight because one straight man (president Obama) said that he is, “Okay with gays and wants their vote.” He has my vote for sure. Not only because he said that, but because when you watch his interviews on this subject, he is sincere about it, and not just thinking about the politics and elections. He actually is thinking upon evolution. Mrs. Noble, a Newport High School librarian, was asked her view on how politics are handling the gay rights act; her comment was, “The declaration of Independence says, We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness…”
Things need to be changed, but it shouldn’t be an argument upon politics. Gay rights, including marriage, etc., shouldn’t be the highlights of politics. Citizens may agree or disagree but it should be up to the president to change things.
