    Sounds like the socialists have some good ideas.

    Don't take my word for this, just wait and see what happens when massive demographic change hits the GOP full force in the not-distant future.

    The clock is ticking on the GOP. No one can stop time and/or change.
    I know the wingnuts here really don't want to hear it, but you're right ... if they don't stop pissing off women or minorities, they'll be lucky to get elected to dog catcher in a couple of decades. Demographics are working against the GOP, and as long as their main constituency -- straight, wealthy white males -- keeps aging out of the electorate (slang for "dying"), they're in deep **** unless they change their tune.

    You know who you are, the ones that agree with fundamentally changing this country. I'm a conservative, a Constitutionalist. Proud of it.

    All the deceit and lying they use. "You've got to pass the bill to know what's in it." "You can keep your plan. Period." If your leaders need to say things like that to get your support, and you find out that they lied to you, and you still support them.
    Time to do a little personal reflection and try to figure out what the hell is wrong with you.



    Everyone should do this, from time to time.

    I do oppose legalizing marijuana.



    You are on the losing side of that battle.

    Don't take my word for this, just wait and see how it plays out.

    Re: The Reason Democrats Are Backing Gay Rights and Marijuana Legalization

    Why are The Dems supporting gay rights and legalizing weed?

    They want to win elections and seem to know how to do it. This new GOP seems to be doing the exact opposite, they are actually alienating the very people we need to win. Between the ways they treat Women's issues, Minority issues, and those in poverty...they have already set the stage for failure.

    You can always spot a true Liberatarian from an embarrassed Republican Libertarian though.

    They are even wackier than you think they are.

    I kid you not.

    I think this thread is built on a faulty premise. Outside of Colorado and Washington, I haven't seen any evidence that the Democrats, as a national party, are remotely interested in legalizing marijuana.

    Well, then social conservatives can continue to stand on the wrong side of history as far as I'm concerned.

    .



    And Libertarians don't care about human rights because they are totally obsessed with property rights, eh?
