Some Dreams Come True

Some Dreams Come True

Another one from the NYC LGBT Pride Parade, 2015.

With the recent Supreme Court ruling, the dreams of the LGBT community came true. The court ruled that same-sex marriage is a nationwide right. Just in the last fourteen years, public support for same-sex marriage moved from 35% to 57%. SCOTUS went along.

I don't like opinion polls and surveys. They are regularly designed to influence opinion more than poll opinion. The latest example was the Greek referendum. Most polls were estimating that the "YES" vote for EU's austerity proposals was slightly ahead of the "NO". The final results turned out to be 61% "NO" and 39% "YES". Not even close.

Another recent survey found that "35 percent of American-born residents and emigrants would consider leaving the United States to live in another country ... For those aged 18 to 34, that number climbed to 55 percent". Once again, I don't think that these surveys are not reliable, but even the suggestion that many young Americans might consider leaving the country is revealing. So much for the American Dream.
