mocktwinkie saidThe majority of Minnesotans just vote democrat for the big government gravy but in the end the majority from both sides will just vote against more social freedom and against gay people.
Maybe if your corporate masters and wealthy buddies didn't support the parties that encourage people to vote against gay people, it wouldn't happen!
Oh, but you and your friends ALWAYS vote for gay rights...I forgot! THAT's why the Republicans usually are front and center when it comes to efforts to repeal gay rights, and are seldom openly supportive of gay rights in general!
The only reason why business tends to support republicans is because of the free market principles they advocate. Take Target, for instance. They are very pro-gay and yet they are forced to vote Republican for their best interest business-wise.
Your argument makes no sense anyway because the majority of voters in MN are democrats and they go democrat in every presidential election.
But we're talking about gay republicans...not Target.
I've known at least a few dozen wealthy gay guys and lesbians. All of them are Democrats. Every. Single. One. They don't mind paying their taxes and are very generous in supporting the gay community. Civil rights and the gay community are more important to them than a few percentage points off their taxes. They have class.
In the public arena, every out and wealthy gay guy is a Democrat...and yes, their donations to liberal organizations are big enough to choke a horse. Good on them. There are a few wealthy closeted gay republicans...but they came to our attention only after their arrest in a men's bathroom or hiring a prostitute. Most of them made their fortunes at least in part by slandering the gay community. They are rotten from the inside out.
I've known maybe 8 or 9 confirmed gay republicans. None of them have been wealthy, but most of them closeted. They've all been racists or haters. Typically, they separate themselves in some imaginary way from "those slutty gays" and often talk down about others...especially other gay guys. IMO...they are loaded with internalized homophobia...so membership in the republican party fits them well. As far as I'm concerned, they can have them.
