    "Clown" is absolutely appropriate, now and forever icon_lol.gif


    When it comes to LGBT rights, the 2016 GOP roster may be more ridiculous than the clown car of 2012

    Alternatively, can anyone name a leading US Republican contender for the Presidency who is PRO-GAY? [crickets}

    Michigan governor Rick Snyder is steadily evolving in terms of gay rights. The last I heard is that he supports a bill that bans discrimination in employment based on natural sexual orientation. Unfortunately the bill died in committee.

    Unlikely, the 2016 "Religious Liberty" movement of the Republicans replaces 2012 same-sex marriage as the litmus test of conservatism to be a Republican presidential candidate.

    Michigan has been republican controlled for years and has never been pro gay anything in Lansing. I am not sure how the state maintains "blue" status if its electoral college is supposed to represent the same voters. Either this is from gerrymandering districts favoring republicans or the majority of democratic voters are voting for republican state legislators, which would explain the "Reagan-Democrat" (social conservative Democrats who vote Republican..A.K.A Tea Party) icon_question.gif?icon_question.gif?

    Its like trying to explain what a "Michigan Left" is to non residents, its estupido icon_confused.gif

    If a Republican gets elected in 2016, I honestly, truly, with all my heart, wish he gets assassinated before he ever gets to write his first hate law.

    I don't see it happening, their MO, usual running platform of "family values" has gone way way too far to the right with their party now endorsing crazy behavior like "killing the gays" petitions and anti gay discrimination laws, all out in the open, blatant, hateful rhetoric. Add allowing us to marry legally in all 50 states, something they fought us for many years, they need to turn there attention to the next fight, which we see now as religious liberty versus our civil rights and existence. Nation wide LGBT Employment will be the next hurdle since its interconnected with gay marriage. Whether single or married, we all have to work or at least have an income of some type. Most of America already believes lgbt employment discrimination should not be tolerated and should have federal laws stating as such, it was marriage equality that was the big defining moment.

    Republicans really have nothing to run on, except "take back the country from the gays" platform. They don't care about creating jobs or improving the economy, we already know they are for corporations, their big profits and low wages for the working class. Anyone under 30 years old is not going to vote for them if they run their usual anti gay family values campaign. They now really look and act like sociopathic lunatics, voting people are finally noticing. Hopefully, we as a forward thinking country, will NEVER have another republican or conservative thinking president again, at least in the next generation. There big learned recent lesson, now, should have been that everyone matters in our FREE country, not just the ones with the most money or influence. If they still haven't "got it" by 2016 elections, its going to take them a bit more time and that's fine by me. icon_cool.gif

    Well, if I live that long, it will be nice to know that my liberal, younger counterparts will take care of me when needed. I don't really care about Christmas, just don't take away Halloween or Thanksgiving icon_wink.gif

    To be honest, I thought there would be at least a couple of GOP candidates who believed in equal rights for gay Americans, but none have come forward yet. The sad fact is that the party seems to be getting more extreme and anti-gay as the nation becomes more approving of gay rights.
    The Republican party continues to become more isolated and appeal to fewer people... Young people, especially are very turned off by the GOP's bigotry.

    The first pro-gay GOP potential candidate has stepped forward:
    Carly Fiorina (former HP executive) Reaffirms Support for Same-Sex Civil Unions

    With overpopulation it'll probably just be legalized euthanasia. Right to die. I'll be in tropical Antarctica. Let me know how it works out.

    Fiorina has clarified her position -- she is AGAINST marriage equality.
    So the GOP is back to zero.

    You mean not enough Millennials. Gen X has become more conservative as it has gotten older in as the same way as the boomers.
