    The US election is in November, but we voted early. Voting for a number of friends of ours. And of course voting against the homophobic Republicans we have here in Florida, a Red State.

    Well I am very happy for you. Whether or not I bother to vote this year remains to be seen.icon_neutral.gif

    I'm not all that thrilled either. Neither of our senate seats are up this cycle. Gov Kasich is up by over 20 points. Oh-12 is probably safe for Pat Tiberi as he won the 12th by 63% - 36% in 2012. The 12th is one of the more consevative districts in the country and Delaware County is supposed to be the 11th most conservative county in the country.

    So we're pretty safe here. I'll probably still go vote, but my vote won't make a hill of beans worth of difference.

    Ever wonder why you get in such knock down drag out fights around here Bobby? Now you're insulting a whole bunch of folks I know personally.

    You know NOTHING of here other than a voting record. I see or hear almost zero bigotry here. You really need to learn to filter a little bit and especially of which you have zero knowledge or experience.

    A voting record does indeed reveal bigotry. Republican Ohio has a very bad tract record, a public record.

    And BTW, my husband's nephew almost ran for Congress from Ohio. He had the Republican Party backing. Naturally my husband & I were mortified at the prospect.

    But at the last moment he backed out, didn't want the hassle and disruption to his family life, which I respected. But he remains a future possibility, he's young enough and prominent enough. So depending upon which Congressional District where you live, you may yet be represented in Congress by my husband's nephew. Now wouldn't THAT be ironic? icon_wink.gif

    "So depending upon which Congressional District where you live,"

    I said in my post above ... the 12th

    "Republican Ohio has a very bad tract record, a public record."

    Got any proof?

    Maybe that's why we have a black mayor in Columbus who happens to be a democrat who wins easily time after time? I'm not in Columbus city limts, but I'd vote for him if I was. Plus we've had a pretty equal split of demos and repubs as mayors.

    "Naturally my husband & I were mortified at the prospect."

    Good

    "you may yet be represented in Congress by my husband's nephew. Now wouldn't THAT be ironic?"

    So what. If he can run and win, more power to him. I have zero problem with that. Why do you think I would?

    I was thinking more about Congress. And doesn't Ohio still claim to have put the most Republicans in the White House?

    Since my husband's nephew would be elected as a Republican, I know you would be delighted. I would just find it ironic, which is a different concept.

    And horrifies the rest of the extended family, because they are lifelong Democrats, with one goofy exception. Brainwashed by her controlling late husband, she actually mostly believes in Democratic Party positions, but votes the straight Republican Party line.

    And keeps spamming me with Republican hate mail against gays, which she knows we are. And yet tells me in person how much she supports gays. Like I said, goofy.

    Seven or eight I think, but I'd have to look it up to see which party

    Really doesn't matter much and certainly not enough to be "delighted".

    I don't know anyone ... period ... like that around here. It's live and let live here.

    The only people I know that are a match, and it's both Eric and his wife, are in Santa Monica, and Calvary Baptists, but even those folks would do anything on earth for someone else. So their behavior doesn't match their rhetoric.

    from ArtDeco above:

    "A voting record does indeed reveal bigotry. Republican Ohio has a very bad tract record, a public record."

    The Voting Record is the only information that counts from our politicians, the only way we can judge them.


    Gay Republicans may be relying too much on their feelings instead of making their choices based on the facts, the voting record.

And of course voting against the homophobic Republicans for Democrats, who represent our belief that minorities need to be permanently enslaved, generation after generation, on public assistance, for the Democrat candidate for Governor who switches his party and his principles based on what he perceives as to be the best way to get votes from gullible idiots like my husband and I we have here in Florida, a Red State.


    I see Mr. Deco went ahead and edited Freedomisntfree's post, so let's see how he likes having HIS post edited. I know he will be "delighted" when he reads this. icon_rolleyes.gif
    Pass the pop corn and the bottled spring water. We are about to see the beginning of yet another dragged out, brass knuckled, political dog fight between SouthBeach and ART DECO. icon_lol.gif

    MY money's on SouthBeach and FreedomIsn'tFree for sure creativity and wit, as well as adherence to the facts.

    Oh, and I voted by mail earlier this week. Since we have a secret ballot in this country, how I voted will stay that way, TYVM! And no, it didn't "impose a burden" on me to pay for the stamp or put the envelope into my mailbox for the postman to retrieve.

    Gay Republicans are largely delusional. I really don't want to be dragged down into their personal Hell of masochism and self-hate.
