8. Welcoming an ugly and divisive fight

I find this absolutely disgusting and embarassing. In this country (labeled the most democratic and best country in the world by those who have their own best interests in mind) we have elected officials that will openly discriminate against people who are not like them. Years ago it was the color of their skin, now it's the choice of the person you love. How anyone could support a bill like the ones in these states is beyond reason. We are not the most democratic and best country in the world. We have lowered ourselves to mindless idiots that impose our will (at will) on people who live their lives and pay their taxes but differ in the way they think and feel about the person they love. How despicable!!! Fortunately, in Arizona there is outrage enough that, hopefully, the governor will veto the bill. Georgia and Ohio, I'm not so sure. This is not the country I grew up in. We have lowered ourselves to second class citizens that allow our legislators impose their will on whomever they please simply in the name of party unity. Party unity? If that is the case, who would really want to be associated this it? This is so embarassing for the country. I know, I know. If I don't like it, then leave. That's the biggest cop out ever uttered. The response should be, if you don't like, fix it. That can only happen by voting those out of office who are bigoted hypocrites.
