southbeach1500 saidNah, but you just can't grasp that there are more important things out there that the Federal government should be dealing with. It's, first and foremost with you and most of the others on here, "gay issues" and who cares if the country goes bankrupt in the meantime.
Wrong -- lots of us here grasped the danger of the US facing economic meltdown during the Bush Administration, and it was YOU, and other Republicans, who denied it was happening. PLUS, the Bushies were anti-gay, so that was a done-deal for us gays in deciding who to support, and who to oppose.
Your claim that only the Republicans offer an economic resolution, from the very problems they created in the first place, would be laughable, if it weren't so insulting to our intelligence. And to our memories, as you right-wing guys continue to rewrite history even faster than it happens.
But even if I did belief your false assertions, here's the ultimate flaw in your argument: that gays should sacrifice our civil rights to financially benefit others. Even if it were true that Republicans will bring riches to all (which they haven't and won't, only the elite seeing any advantage), a fundamental principle of democracy is that we each get to vote in our own best interest, in the way we see it, with the majority outcome the result of this process. And with the courts and our Constitution the ultimate protection against the absolute rule of the simple majority (aka "judicial activism" as Republicans term it unless the court ruling favors them).
I don't recall hearing any prominent Republicans saying they would sacrifice any of THEIR advantages or rights to give ME the same civil rights that they have. Why should *I* disadvantage myself, sacrifice my interests, in favor of theirs?
A nice deal you offer -- put our own interests aside, so others may further marginalize us, while they make more money for themselves. Hey, they do say gays tend to behave as victims, so I guess you got us pegged, alright.
