    Re: Gay Romney aide steps down, citing backlash over sexuality

    Yeah, I'd like to live in a country where people are actually judged on their character, accomplishments and what they stand for rather than their sexual orientation. Homosexuals are the last minority that are being legally discriminated against in this country. It's a damned shame. It appears to me from his statement that he realized Romney might lose the ultra-conservative vote if he stayed in the campaign. That's just plain wrong. His assessment is probably correct, but the fact that it is probably correct is what is wrong.

    Ironic that he was hounded out of the campaign for his sexual preference and not all the jackass things he's actually responsible for.

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    What I find humorous is that anyone thinks that Willard "Mit" Romney is against same-sex marriage. All you have to do is look at his record as Governor of Massachusetts to know that isn't true. He was Governor when Same-Sex Marriage became legal in the State.

    ....Ahem....

    ""The story on same-sex marriage is that I have the same position on that I had when I ran from the very beginning," said Romney. "I’m in favor of traditional marriage. I oppose same-sex marriage. At the same time, I don’t believe in discriminating in employment or opportunity for gay individuals. So I favor gay rights. I do not favor same-sex marriage. That has been my position all along."

    Err.. Same Sex Marriage became legal because he lost in court.... and was forced to accept it.

    I am well aware of the means for it becoming legal here in the Communistwealth. I am also well aware that he chose not to force the issue through the higher courts and other means. He sat by and allowed it to happen rather than seriously fighting against it. He refused to put anyof his personal or political life on the line to fight it; therefore he at least passively supported it so far as I'm concerned. Just as his passiveness on the gun control issue does NOT equate to support of gun owners.
