Which is a bigger concern in the USA; that 1% of the population control 50%+ of the wealth in this nation, or that an individual representing ~2% of the population is in love with and wants to marry another individual of the same ~2%? Which issue has a bigger effect on the lives of the majority of the population? Why is same sex marriage even an issue? The only people it affects are the two people getting married !!!!!!! Does it affect the stock market? Does it affect your home value? Does it affect your take home pay? Does it affect your tax rate? Does it affect your home mortgage interest rate? Does it affect the price of gasoline for your pickup truck? Does it affect the price of hamburgers at McDonalds? How does it affect ANYONE other than the two individuals getting married?

It will probably increase it.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

Americas poor are obsessed with morality issues. Americas rich are obsessed with monopoly issues.
Blacks feel left out because neither issues concern them.

This is a surprisingly accurate summary of American politics.
