    I came across this video and I thought it was a good summary of the gains in Gay Rights that have occurred over the past 4 years.

    Cue the conservaposse...

    - We don't deserve it
    - Other things are more important
    - Romney isn't as bad as you think
    - Cut taxes
    - Etc.

    Stirring indeed! Seeing all of those veterans with tears running down their cheeks made me cry too. For so many of them, victory came years or decades after their time in the military ended.


    VOTE FOR OBAMA!icon_smile.gif

    Great video. I don't think many people realize just how important Obama has been in the gay rights movement over the past 4 years. This video really highlights those gains. I know who I am voting for!

    And some here actually say that Obama just "uses the gays" for our vote without doing anything actually for us. icon_rolleyes.gif

    And if what he has done and his support for marriage equality is only to get our vote, so what? There are some politicians out there fighting gay rights only to get votes.

    Very true.
    The Repubs have been catering to the religious right bigots for decades in order to get their votes.

    If the religious right Repubs are going to wage war against our equal rights - we need to support the political party that's on our side - and fight back back by voting a straight Democratic ticket this November 6th.

    100% correct, as usual.

    I want to know why Romney has changed his stance significantly from when he was Governor to now. Why is he so much more anti-gay than he used to be?

    Because Romney's views change in whatever direction he thinks is more popular to get him elected. He just changed his views on abortion today a month before the election after months of being extremely anti choice and anti women.

    He flip flops so much it is hard to pin him on any of his "real" views. I think that is his strategy now. He thinks if he can lie enough and change views on things enough he can confuse the voters into everyone from every camp to vote for his lying ass.
