    So serious question. When it comes to political parties, I'm the kinda person who votes for the candidate, not the party. I've always been that way, especially with local government. Most people forget that your local elected official does a hell of a lot more for you than the POTUS, but thats besides the point.

    A few weeks ago I was talking to this guy that I came across on Facebook. We were gelling quite well and then he asked me what I do for a living. I said I was about to start a job working as an assistant to a local elected official. He's a great guy, I know him personally for years and I agree with everything he stands for. He's also a republican. When FB guy heard that he started to berate me and call me a bad gay and said he would 100% never date a republican, and would certainly never associate with someone who works for one. And then he had some choice words for my character lol

    What are your thoughts on that?

    There are two types of Republican here on RJ: the type who so enjoy meaningless conflict that they would start a flamewar just to enjoy the smell of roasting flesh, and the type who are so oblivious to the state and direction of the party that they really would have no idea what they were getting into when they started one. The former is the majority here, and probably on the intertubes in general, though admittedly not in real life. Neither is a group for whom I have much respect, though.

    Not to be found on the internet is the type who realizes how insane the party has become and who wants to talk rationally and honestly about how to fix it. I've met a bare handful of these in real life, but again, none of them are here or any other melee discussion group online. Those people I can respect, but I can see how your (admittedly hysterical) FB friend would not realize they exist (by virtue of the fact that he's on FB and not in the sort of place where real people discuss real solutions to real problems).

    Ask your Republican friend what he thinks about gay marriage. Then ask him what does he think about you getting married and ensuring your rights are preserved.

    If this were the 1950's there would be nothing wrong with being a Republican; but it's not. The Republican party has morphed into something our grandparents would not recognize. The party used to stand for small government and keeping as much freedom for the citizens without government interference as possible. They still love to repeat the mantra "keep the government out of our lives" but they will hypocritically try and micromanage everyone else's lives that do not fall under what they consider "Christian Values." They also consistently vote money over equal rights. They will fight tooth and nail to save a penny on taxes and yet don't give a shit about the rights of others.

    Remember this: Not all Republicans are Fundamentalists but all Fundamentalists are Republican. Therefore, when you vote Republican, you're also voting against gay rights.

    What are your thoughts on that?

    I'm with you on the voting process; it's just that lately, since 1976 or so, the majority of candidates I support are GOPers. The Democrats are simply too permissive domestically, and too naive internationally for me to vote or support them. Sometimes I will vote for a Demo, but only if the opponent, whatever party s/he may be from, is God-awful terrible.

    As for your intolerant facebooker, I get that crap all the time, and thank God it comes sooner rather than later so such people don't waste my time and energy. Just what is a "bad gay" anyway - LOL! "Down, bad gay, down!" - and who defines one? As for bad GOPers, they're as easy to identify as bad Demos; they usually are long on preaching and short on teaching, or learning, or thinking, ... But, all that said, there's much more appeal for me in the core beliefs of the GOP than there is in those of today's Democrats, and I believe it's foolish to be a one-issue voter. I've held local, county, and statewide elected office in the CA GOP and know a good deal more about its workings than do its critics, particularly its most irrational ones, many of whom can be found here and on other sites; the internet fosters them which, however crass it may seem at times, is good for debate. Of course, the CA GOP =/= OK or AL's GOP, but despite all the naysaying, I know full well what I'm involved with as much as I know what I choose not to become involved with. In sum, I'm not just "comfortable," but happy with my political views and would neither surrender them nor impose them upon others, though I will argue their merits as strongly as obliged to. And all of that, with "no apologies, no regrets."

    That's just ridiculous, I personally think republicans in USA have many good points while democrats are going extremely cookoo and fascistic


    That said, I think there needs to be balance, all people should express their opinions freely and there are extremes on both parties and too often I see liberal fascists as bullies throwing tantrums - bigot, fascist, racist on people who don't want illegals, terrorists and freeloaders and on other issues or posting some derogatory pictures.

    Well let me say, as an educated atuned individual, I think it's important to be flexible and ask questions. My history on RJ reflects a centrist democratic approach, but always open to a reasonable and grounded view.

    However having a right wing nut for a governor (who bankrupted our state government, had our financial ratings reduced through incompetent actions, the loss of aircraft company jobs to Oklahoma, etc, etc and even had moderate republicans targeted in the 2014 elections), I tend to be less "flexible" about these right wing loons.

    That said, DON'T be a one issue voter. Yeah, we know the candidates are largely bigots when it comes to gay marriage (or being open minded), but there are a long list of disagreements I have. Take the time, read up on major positions of both the republican and democratic parties.. (not saying being a democrat is the answer), but you need to be educated on what is important to you as a person and as a voter. You owe it to yourself and to your country to take the time.

    I think you're better off without that friend.

    The Republican Party has its share of social conservatives, some who would deny you of your rights and want to impose their beliefs on everyone. The party also has social moderates who believe the Government should stay out of people's bedroom and are fiscally moderate or conservative.

    The Democratic Party has traditionally had its share of socially moderate and fiscally conservative. But recently these people have been marginalized and the party is currently under control of leftist, progressives, socialists.

    Right now the extremes on both parties are making a lot of noise but there is one difference from my perspective. There are still moderates in the Republican Party who have some influence, and it is that influence that is causing some turmoil in the Republican Party. On the other hand, the Democrats have only one main influential voice, that being the voice of the far left.

    I vote for the person, not the party, and have voted for people from both parties. Recently, I find myself allied more with Republicans because I think the Democrats want to pursue policies that are destroying the country. However, I support the more moderate Republicans.

    I've never supported someone solely on one issue and I don't find any candidate or party that I agree with 100%.

    Back to your question: I believe someone thinks in such black and white terms probably doesn't have the wisdom to see shades of gray. You don't need people like that in your life or at least influencing your actions.

    The Republican Party has utterly disintegrated of late. They've relied so long on untruths, wedge issues, fear mongering and demagoguery that they've lost much of the credibility they must had. Their stances on gay marriage, climate change and poverty are illustrative of that. I'm not commenting on the Democratic Party, other than to say that while not perfect it is a far better option unless you are a wealthy white evangelical Christian, and a man.

    I really am seriously trying to understand here. From context I think you claim the presence of a moderate element to be a credit to the party, but by all appearances, the party is near-unanimously rejecting said moderate element. Is my misunderstanding with your alignment, the current electoral trend, or both?

    In my view, the moderates retain influence so the "party" is not rejecting moderates. To get a nomination, however, some moderates will need to say they view marriage as "traditional", but to many that is only a personal view and not indicative of any attempt to make that a policy.

    I would prefer someone not make such a statement, but I realize that is needed to get support from the social conservatives. If the Democrats hadn't so totally marginalized their moderates, I would have more of a choice. As it stands, if I have to choose between someone who I think will govern the country well, even if they consider marriage as "traditional", versus a socialist who I think will destroy the country, I have to choose the former.

    climate change is a JOKE, what is USA supposed to do? follow the rules and affect their own wellbeing and economy and spend resources fighting climate change while third world countries that contribute MUCH MORE waste into atmosphere, if we combine India and China alone, DON"T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE

    It's an Utopic dream and issue to fight climate change within a country if no one else is doing it , that is like sawing your own leg off

    Gotta go do stuff but just took a break and read this so to comment quickly, I might add later (so sorry for cutting this short now), but I immediately recalled a response I had to a similar comment on another thread so just cutting pasting here.

    I bring this up because I think we have to be careful of the single issue complaint which strikes me as very similar to the no mentioning of Hitler complaint. It's not a counter argument. they just use that to cut conversation. With Hitler I often find the comment to be somewhat anti-Semitic and with Single Issue I wonder if it is not sometimes homophobic.

    I do appreciate your other commenting and I'll try to get back to that later but here's this for now from...

    sportsguysd7 saidAnd this why it's hard NOT to be a single issue voter...


    Don't believe their mischaracterizing as single-issue politics our advocating for Gay Rights. The Republicans are full of shit.

    Civil Rights is not a single issue. This isn't about just gun control or just abortion or just animal rights; rather, it is about a whole host of rights withheld from an entire segment of the population.

    Coming together to fight that isn't single issue politics, though I suppose it might be considered a voting bloc which might in some senses disband once rights have been gained and secured. But single issue? Not hardly.

    The LGBT Social Movement, The Gay Rights Movement involves many issues, not just one. Marriage, jobs, discrimination in housing, access to healthcare, adoption rights, protections against school bullying, homelessness, abuses by religion, etc. etc etc.

    Single issue? No. This is a Social Movement. Somewhat greater than a single issue.

    Thanks. I had been hoping I was parsing some of this incorrectly, but at best I think it turns into a semantic debate at this point. I do appreciate the explanation. :/

    For me it's essentially an intelligence test. The modern republican party is laughable and if someone supports that kind of idiocy i don't see myself as taking them seriously on an intellectual level. It's a melting pot for some of the most insane ideas and most insane style of arguing those ideas that is too absurd to actually be believed.


    I despise the democratic party. It's just the republican party is on a whole different level of gross.

    I think that making black and white decisions and drawing conclusions based on stereotypes and generalities is something that we (as in the universal 'us') can benefit from.

    That being said, I consider myself spread between the two parties: fiscally conservative, but socially responsible.

    Generals gathered in their masses,
    Just like witches at black masses.
    Evil minds that plot destruction,
    Sorcerer of death's construction.
    In the fields the bodies burning,
    As the war machine keeps turning.
    Death and hatred to mankind,
    Poisoning their brainwashed minds.
    Oh lord yeah!

    Politicians hide themselves away,
    They only started the war.
    Why should they go out to fight,
    They leave that role to the poor.*

    Yeah!

    Time will tell on their power mind, **
    Making war just for fun.
    Treating people just like pawns in chess,
    Wait till their judgement day comes.

    Yeah!

    Now in darkness world stops turning,
    Ashes where the bodies burning.
    No more war pigs have the power,
    Hand of God has struck the hour.
    Day of judgement God is calling,
    On their knees the war pig's crawling.
    Begging mercy for their sins,
    Satan laughing spreads his wings.

    Oh lord yeah!

    For me it's essentially an intelligence test. The modern republican party is laughable and if someone supports that kind of idiocy i don't see myself as taking them seriously on an intellectual level. It's a melting pot for some of the most insane ideas and most insane style of arguing those ideas that is too absurd to actually be believed.


    I despise the democratic party. It's just the republican party is on a whole different level of gross.

    Based upon those stupid generalizations, your intellectual level is clearly not very high.
