Equal Rights

Every American citizen has an equal right to protection under the Constitution. How they pursue happiness is a personal choice. Marriage is a bond between two people and every married couple should have equal access to financial and medical partner benefits. The pay gap between men and women or among whites, African-Americans, Latinos, and other minorities should be zero. There should be equal pay for equal work. Equal protection under the law is a given. The rights of all people to participate fully in our society must be respected.
