Barry Goldwater was born in Arizona when it wasn't a state. He ran in 1964 and would have won if millions and millions of people had voted differently.  Wouldn't it be the same thing?

I'm curious why a question like this is even asked. How in any way would his belief if it's a choice to be gay (which its obviously not) affect his ability to run the country. I wish we could actually talk about the issues for once.

It's a window into who they are.  I want to know what your tax policies would be, but I also want to know how'd you react if your son wanted to convert to Judaism to marry a Jewish Woman.

For anyone who opposes SSM (and ENDA) this is really the only position you can have. Once you agree that being gay isn't a choice, there is no longer any rationale for opposition to gay rights. So opponents have to be in the choice crowd (like Santorum or Carson) or "I dont know."  At least there is some consistency.  Rubio tried for moderate heroism by saying being gay isn't a choice, but gays still shouldnt be allowed to get married. In my book that is worse.

It's a choice.. Plain and simple.

So you could choose to be gay....if you wanted to. Good to know.

President Bush was asked this question in the 3rd debate in 2004. He said the same thing.

Walker knows Tammy Baldwin. Just ask her.

I would not be surprised if 10 years from now President Obama in an interview says he is atheist or agnostic.

Why wait? Farewell address to the nation, say January 18, 2017, seems as good a time as any.

Mitt Romney:

"The difference between @senjohnmccain and @realdonaldtrump: Trump shot himself down. McCain and American veterans are true heroes"

But he was happy to take Trump's endorsement in 2012.

Maybe 2 or 3..

Trump on McCain: "He's a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren't captured."

12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Republicans Are Too Angry About Gay Marriage on: July 06, 2015, 07:30:01 pm
That's funny.  They've avoided the issue like the plague for a decade and essentially invited gay 'mirage' to become law. Repubs gave up a long time ago. If that's angry, can't help ya.

The battle is over and we lost. Terms of surrender: We want religious freedom and media to stop calling us haters. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/02/opinion/sunday/the-terms-of-our-surrender.html?_r=0

Excuse me, But don't the Victors usually dictate the terms of surrender? But I'll play along.

1. You want 'Religious Freedom'?  No. Here's why:

Since the founding of this Nation, these kind of marriages have happened:

Jewish Woman-Christian Man
Atheist Woman-Muslim Man
Muslim Woman-Christian Man
Woman entering her 2nd marriage- Man entering his 3rd marriage
Hindu Woman-Atheist Man

And every combo there within. And yet I NEVER heard about people whining that THESE weddings were against their religious beliefs.

So I must then conclude that 'Religious Freedom' is  code for Gay Bashing.

2. You'd like to stop being called "Haters"?  No.

You are in fact 'Haters' You seem to hate, not gay people, but people who are happy being gay. You want us to cower in our closets. That's fine. You may think that if you wish, But it does, in fact make you a hater.

Thank you. Cheesy

Kinda disingenuous seeing as how he knows there aren't the votes in Congress to pass this to the states.

So should I bother looking up 'Target Seats' for this election, or would that be pointless because the Liberal collapse of 2011 skewed everything?

The Court rules next month. Why would the SSM advocates shut up before the ruling? After it passes, there'll be a few weeks of celebration here (you might want to take the month of June off Atlas) and then gays will just get married and everyone else will stop talking about it.

That's what I mean by in your face. Their celebrations have to be public. What is the purpose other than to taunt people? I live in the belly of the beast, thankfully I'm travelling a lot in June. Divine intervention there

It's our version of a sports championship parade. Which as a SF resident you've seen a few times this decade.

Showers and t-storms. My type of weather.

I agree, but is that all we're going to get? Should we build an arc?
