    Tl;dw

    But just by the title of this thread I can't help but to think to what certain extend will some people go to deny a group of people's right for equality & happiness. ......oh well :i

    this...toolbox...is one of the reasons many moderate, middle-of-the-road voters (like ME) have abandonded the GOP/tea bagger party.

    This is more proof that the religious right is our enemy.

    We didn't start this fight.
    We didn't choose to make the religious right our enemy.
    THEY are the ones who had hatred in their hearts for us.
    THEY are the ones who chose to work to try to demonize us, and to try to gain the political power to deny gay Americans the same equal rights all American enjoy.

    But now that the religious right Repubs have chosen to start this fight, we must fight back.
    We must flex our muscle and show that we are strong and fearless, and that we will not quit fighting for our rights.

    The easiest way to fight them is to vote for the Democrat.

    It's VERY important to educate gays just coming out. I had an 18 year old guy working for me last year. He was raised by staunch republicans but wasn't into politics. He was planning on voting republican because he just didn't connect the repugs=antigay dots. Huckabee and company encase their hatred in dog whistle language...pro family, traditional marriage, hate the sin love the sinner,etc....while calling our demands the radical homosexual agenda, special rights, destroying marriage, etc.

    We need to loudly call them out for what they are....BIGOTS.

    And if somebody votes republican, yes, they support bigotry and hate. No middle ground here.

    The Repubs have been using bigotry and hate to try to win elections for decades.
    Their disgusting anti-black "Southern Strategy" worked so well for them, starting in the 1960's, that they moved on to try to appeal to anti-gay voters in the 1980's.
    Their anti-gay hatemongering worked well for them too, and has helped them win elections, most notably the 2004 presidential election.
    Lately, they've been trying to appeal to voters who hold anti-latino anti-immigrant sentiment.

    The sad thing is that millions of (mostly) white Americans don't care, and continue to vote Repub.

    You mean the right wing, conservative republicans that have voted for hatred both racist and homophobic. Not all republicans harbor these ignorant, backward thoughts and beliefs. As for Mike Fuckabee, that man is primitive minded asshole whose potential candidacy could be a horrible embarrassment to the GOP. This is why it is time for progressive and moderate republicans to wake up and start taking back the GOP before it is too late. It is time to put all these religious, right wing lunatics on the marginal fringes of society where they rightfully belong.

    Yeah, the Jews should have "taken back" Nazi Germany before it was too late icon_rolleyes.gif

    You know... even in a semi-democracy there actually ARE more than 2 parties.... (Green, Libertarian, the "Constitution" party) maybe people should start voting for them. In any other country the Republican party and its ideas as it exists in the US would be a minority party in the right-wing fringe. The bible freaks will always vote for those kind of socially conservative ideas, which is why they congregate around political parties like that. If it's their party, let them vote for it, and let all the moderates with slightly more brain capacity vote for something else.

    These right wing lunatics represent the agenda that the GOP is trying to push. Why would any gay individual support this group of people? OH YEA because you are fiscal conservatives first and foremost (and being gay doesn't define you). That's TOTAL BS.

    It's time for gay conservatives to realize you are supporting a party that doesn't support you. The GOP is all about trying to take away people's rights. Get a clue!

    The beautiful thing is, this Asshole is currently the frontrunner for the GOP nod. He is unelectable. The bad part is, with the economy and the backlash against Obama, he is less unelectable than he should be.

    The freak hatemongering scumbag is everything that is wrong with Amurika

    The GOP would not have this anti-gay agenda if the narrow minded, bible thumping screwballs were not allowed to take over the party leadership. The GOP can be taken back from these ignorant, religious extremists it is a matter of when and how to do it. As for being a fiscal conservative and pushing aside my natural sexual orientation, thats total nonsense.

    "...a man marries a woman and remains in partnership for life..." perhaps he should take that part of his speech and work on that first as probably 50% of his audience has been divorced. He needs to steady his own house before he starts tearing down others.

    It's lunatics like this that caused me to dump this party and move to the more rational and realistic side.

    The democrats are a bunch of tax wasting, big government, extremist liberals who have bankrupted most of our older northern American cities with their monopoly rule and endless corruption. Look at Detroit, Cleveland, and Buffalo and the severe damage the democratic party has done to those three once prosperous, proud cities. Wake up and smell the coffee you extremist liberal hens.icon_mad.gif

    Republicans seem to love their politicians to be mentally ill , mean-spirited and/or intellectually deficient. Goldwater, Nixon, Bush Jr., Quayle, Reagan, Bachman, Palin, Hucakabee, etc.

    But we must remember there IS a difference between the "gays shouldn't have equal rights" social Conservatives and the "poor people shouldn't have access to health care" fiscal Conservatives.

    Um, no, those were primarily industrial cities that were unable to compete with Chinese and other low labor cost nations for low tech, low wage jobs. I believe it was the republicans that pushed for "free trade" and lower tarifs. Support for union employees did not cause the breakdown of the industrial centers.

    You are nothing but a RINO to the GOP. They don't want you. Keep giving the GOP your money and your vote so they can screw you over and take your rights away.
