Five people decided what marriage is June 26, 2015

From early on after I came to the U.S., I knew how important presidential election was in America.

A U.S. president can declare war without approval from anybody. A U.S. president can decide whom the U.S. wants to be friend with. For that matter, he can choose whom the enemy is too. A president can spend tax payers’ money any way he wants to with enough backing from the Congress and the Senate. A U.S. president can decide which country he wants to do business with and which country he wants to punish too.

But, to me, the most important power a U.S. president has is to appoint someone he likes to the Supreme Court. Once appointed to the SC, the new judge can’t be replaced unless he or she is dead or he or she decides to step down for whatever reason.

The decisions handed down by the Supreme Court often have far reaching influence on our lives and on our children’s lives.

Obamacare is a great example and the American tax payers are stuck with paying for this law which was rammed down our throats when checks and balances were totally out of whack in the  U.S.

Today’s decision on marriage was also a prime example of how much influences an American president has on ordinary people in the U.S.

You see, a U.S. president can declare war against a country but another president can end the war. A U.S. president can increase spending in areas he likes but another president can reverse it.

But a ruling decided by 5 out of 9 people in a building on 1 First Street, NE in DC almost can’t be over-ruled no matter how bad the rule was.

Morality shouldn’t be decided by five people no matter how powerful they are. It is even more appalling when these five people were appointed to their positions for life and there is nothing anyone of us can do anything about it.

Marriage isn’t a marriage anymore in the U.S.

It is one more reason which makes me like the U.S. a little less today than I did yesterday.
