Dennis89 saidlol im sorry to say this in the way it may come across but as a outsider to the USA don't they need to sort the rights out there first ??????
Despite our anti-gay contingent, we're farther along on gay rights than MANY so-called modern countries. The Democrats are showing leadership by pushing policies and passing laws as they can at home and encouraging other countries to follow suit.
Damn, haven't you been paying attention to the utterances of our RJ conservaposse? Democrats HATE gays, it's the Republicans who love us. Clearly you need to be reminded:
- Obama is the enemy of gays, he's just doing all this to placate his base and attract gay voters, he really doesn't mean it
- Republicans are the friends of gays, they're just trying to pass anti-gay social legislation to placate their base and attract anti-gay voters, they really don't mean it
And if you can't believe the above, don't forget their fall-back position:
"Well, gay civil rights don't really matter, they're just overrated 'special rights' you don't really need, so vote Republican anyway. There's nothing wrong with second-class citizenship, the problem is that you're fixating on it too much, being self-centered. It's not a patriotic American problem that needs attention, like preventing gun control, busting unions, outlawing abortion, waging useless wars to enrich campaign donors, eliminating health & safety regulations to benefit corporations over citizens, and restricting voter rights."
