With all the hype about fairness, transparency, and non-discrimination the government should be more than adequate to ensure that all citizens are treated fairly and equally. However, in recent court findings concerning the affordable health act, defense of marriage act, and others the government has distinctly discriminated against a portion of the citizenry. With these actions government sided in matters that are best left to the true governing body of the nation - the citizens. Political corruption is in USA society where politicians hide their past to conceal the truth from the citizen.

the name affordable care act does not mean that it will be affordable - only that under government supply they will attempt to provide it. they cannot provide security to the citizens even though they spend trillions on it. affordable is a myth.
Fair enough - like I said I know more on DOMA, and live in a country with free hospital health care and subsidised family practice care so don't really get the USAs version.
How about my other request - how is DOMAs repeal discrimination against u?
the Supreme Court ruled DOMA was discrimination. Due to this ruling, I am unable to refuse service to immoral individuals. Therefore, this ruling discriminates against me because it requires me to do something that is against my beliefs.
Can you explain further? As Section 3 is the only piece repealed the moment. What service do you provide that means you need to acknowledge gay marriage when interpreting an act of congress? Otherwise, depending on state, you r still allowed to deny.
So the best way to be fair is to redefine a social position is abnormal. Maybe we should eliminate the discrimination by eliminating gov control of the definition. Those who want fairness already had it under prior laws.
Yes, yes it is. We overturned slavery and gave women the right to vote in similar fashion - perhaps that was "radical" also in some people's eyes, but in reality it was progress and moving into a modern century.
Wow-really! An amendment is now equal to a supreme court ruling.I guess you changed the gov model for the republic with this concept. Socialism at its finest.
I believe you are correct. The gov should get out of the social definition business. They are not qualified to determine the defining moments for an individual. Private parties require private solutions.
