LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

July 1, 2015

The declaration of independence says that our creator has given certain indisputable rights; Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Apparently, the right to life doesn’t apply to the unborn, and liberty is slipping between our fingers as our government grows more and more, and decides what liberties are good for us, and which ones we cannot handle.

The pursuit of happiness is the one that is at the forefront now. There is a group that says if we can just change the definition of marriage to include us, then our pursuit of happiness will also be fulfilled.

But, if the future proves that the redefinition doesn’t bring the happiness, then the probable next step will be to blame the lack of satisfaction on a group or groups that did not agree with the changed meaning of marriage in the first place.

Some change is good. Some change, when enacted in haste without taking into account possible future ramifications, may bring unfortunate outcomes.

I’m not a prophet. But we will see.

  1. No. It’s too late for that.
    I always figured that the term “marriage” should maintain its historical meaning.
    But, I never had a problem with civil unions fir same sex couples.
