    According to a Honduras’ LGBT rights leader, Jose “Pepe” Palacios, the United States is funding Honduras' military. The money is used to buy guns...guns which are used to kill LGBT leaders in Honduras, many of whom are pushing for democracy.

    Unfortunately, the U.S. has a long history of supporting oppressive governments.

    Obama is just giving lip service when he says he won't support goverments that condemn and punish the lbgt commmunity. He just flat out lies because there are dozens of examples of countries that we still give money to while they persecute gays. And the worst part is the majority remains oblivious, thinking that Obama is a champion of gay rights and equality when he does the opposite of what he says he going to do over and over again.

    He said he wouldn't raise taxes under any circumstances, he did. And maybe it was necessary, but he should not have made the lie in the first place. He criticized Bush's administration for lack of transparency, yet has issued more classied documents in his first term that Bush did in 8 years. He said he would protect the Constitution, yet has been supporting and sponsoring bills that allow him to execute American citizens without due process. He is a Nobel peace prize winner, yet has authorized numerous drone strikes, even targeting American citizens. This president's administration is filled with hypocrisy, and I really doubt he gives a shit about gays except for instances where it is politically expedient. He will never stick his neck out for us when it really counts, just how he takes no real, tangible action besides words and speeches against foreign governments who persecute their gays.

    What the fuck do you expect? It's politics. Any politician will say/do whatever it takes to win. You can't expect Obama to have his way with everything. Some give must occur. And I also doubt he is aware ofevery country America is funding.

    But you are really kidding yourself if you think their has been a more pro-gay president in the history of the U.S. I really hate people that sit here and babble on about Obama not doing enough for gay people. What the fuck else do you want him to do? Face it, gay rights is of little concern to the majority of the country. As a gay man, it's easy deluded yourself and think the world revolves around your equality/freedom, but it doesn't. You are 3% of the population. You are an afterthought. Obama supports gay rights, but that's about all he can do. Gay rights are a State and legal issue. Get that through your head.

    These are compelling reasons why both democrats and republicans need to have their asses kicked out of office. Both are just out for their own self aggrandizement. Gays, Hispanics, women, and blacks have all been taken advantage of just for these so called progressive politicians to win their votes. Otherwise it is go fuck yourselves. We have a more important agenda.
