    braddomo saidNot all gay conservatives are extremely wealthly. I'm middle of the road. I'm just tired of all the problems we are experiencing with an extremely liberal state we have here in California.


    Have you tried an extremely conservative state like Texas...

    The grass is always greener...

    Maybe they just want less government, or a more responsible way for taxes to be spent, I don't know, I do not speak for all conservatives.
    Most people I meet are not one dimensional. I know plenty of people who are supporters of gay marriage and Mitt Romney, I know, right? People can be complicated in ways that just don't make sense.

    FYI: I live in one of the most "Liberal" places in the U.S. and the recession has barely even hit us.

    Anybody that is middle of the road and thinks Mitt Romney will be their knight in shining armor is delusional. Face it people, YOU'RE not the ones he's focused on. Mitt Romney knows nothing about the middle class. He has never lived a day as a middle class american.

    Poor people?... well you are shit out of luck if Mitt Romney is elected.

    Republicans, as I have known them, have always been about the preservation of their monetary gains.

    I've tried to understand the homocon mindset and worldview. It still eludes me. Perhaps one day.

    Not all poofs let their sexuality define them as a whole, as it should not. But we all have to eat, and pay bills. Many of the left put self before country too! But many of the left who have decided to have their sexuality define them as a whole are sure to be the ones who play the victom the most to and act like a petulant child, kicking and stamping their feet and abusing those who do not vote the way they think they should, because they get in the way of them getting their own way.

    Maybe it's because I'm an Aussie who calls oz home, but I'm in no need for any more rights, I'm content the way things are; albeit the activists could take back the predicament of this De facto status they created. After all I'm not being stoped from loving or being loved.

    You know them well, then. And most of them here prove that, in rationalizing their disinterest in gay civil rights, even outright opposition to gay rights, in order to support anti-gay Republican candidates.

    If they were concerned about gay rights, they wouldn't VOTE for a conservative candidate.

    Personally I'm all for preserving wealth, and would probably throw in a conservative vote if it weren't for all the conservative bigots in high positions...like running for President.

    Anyone who cares about wealth should vote Democratic.
    The economy and the stock market have historically done much better when there's a Democrat in the White House.

    Nine out of the last ten recessions hit when there was a Repub in the White House.
    And every Repub president for more than a hundred years had had at least one recession hit while he was in office - while four of the last five Democratic presidents had zero recessions hit in their watch.

    Recessions and Repub presidents have gone hand in hand since the 1800's.

    Now there are rich gay Repubs who vote Repub purely because they want to keep the Bush tax cuts for the rich in place - but that's pure selfishness and greed.
