dont forget to add your user(s) to some group(s) ... depends on your needs ... here's "my" config
root@your_machine:/etc# grep your_user group

## User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
## Uncomment to allow members of group wheel to execute any command
%wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL

# %wheel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

# %sudo ALL=(ALL) ALL
