    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     NewsFreak78 says although same-sex marriage is not one of his top three priorities for the nation he says he is happy about President Obama's decision to support same-sex marriage, and believes the President's stance demonstrates he is a good leader. 'He is doing what he feels is right from his heart and not what ancient scripts and faiths dictate,' he says. 'I wasn’t going to vote at all this year.' he says. 'I feel threatened by the republicans over my sexuality and I felt threatened by the democrats because of the "big government". However, Obama really hit it home for me and I am very proud to be a part of this great nation he leads.'

    I'm very happy with Obama's decision because at the end of the business day I can see my partner and feel hopeful. I never would have thought he would do something like this. Just this decision alone made me swing way left to vote.
