    No, it's not; at least, it's no more true for the Dems than it is for the GOP. There's a difference between pandering and representing your constituency. Now, I know in Navy Pride's world that liberals are all idiots and the Democrats are pure evil, but try to show a shred of intellectual honesty here please.

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

    I suspect some democrats DO support those things solely (or mostly) because it will garner them votes.

    By the same token, however, some republicans oppose them (or support them?) for exactly the same reasons.


    However, as I fall within that age group, I will say that I completely agree - gay marriage should be legal in all the land(s?), and so should marijuana.

    Of course that means updating DUI laws to include provisions for someone who gets so stoned they can't drive (is that possible?) correctly. And related things.
    Education.

Recall recently how Obama spoke in favor of marijuana legalization and came out in favor of gay rights.

    Doesn't matter, you are blaming an ITEM and not the person. You are no different then those blaming guns instead of the person. Guess you are a liberal after all since you don't believe in personal responsibility. Let me guess though, you don't believe in government making alcohol illegal either, just weed.

    It does matter. Show me the right to keep and bear MJ in the constitution and if you can't please ignore me cause I'm going to ignore you. I cant's stand socialist that live under the "libertarian-left" mantra and pretend to be something they aren't.

    I'd say it falls in the DoI that states "We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, liberty, & the pursuit of happiness."
