It's good to see that the youth of America actually believe in America's founding principle; freedom. Too bad 56% of seniors want to continue to discriminate against their fellow citizens...

@Tero I have 4 children between 13-22. As they became more aware of national politics during the 2012 election campaign, they (and, thankfully most of their friends) were appalled as the coverage of gay marriage unfolded and it became clear to them that, no, Gay people in the USA do not yet have the same rights as other Americans.

Their empathy and acceptance was heartwarming. 

And, once they figured out which US political party was determined to continue discrimination against the LGBT community with every fiber of its being...well, I can only hope that they continue to examine the issues and vote for the party that best exemplifies liberty, fairness, equality and justice.

@Tero They just want the good old days, that were only good for WASPs anyway, when everything was simple and we all knew our place.  ;)
