    Yes and only fools listen to such "platforms" and "debates", whereas SSM is an actual plethora of rights being deprived to people...for now. I don't expect that will last until 2016 elections

    That might be true. It is quite different to drop SSM and Abortion from the state platform and candidates stating acceptance of those two issues on the campaign trail.

    They don't need to accept anything....they just need to quit opposing and pissing people off.

    If asked on the campaign trail..." do you support gay marriage?"...the correct response is what??? "Read the platform"?

    ..."I do not oppose it" will be seen as tacit acceptance. The platform is meaningless, the candidates are the holders of the keys.

    The correct reply:

    I find abortion to be unacceptable....but because I also find personal rights to be important, my opinion must remain just that....my opinion.

    Same with gay marriage. "I believe marriage is between a man and a woman but I also believe the government has no business dictating that to people for me." And it would have the added benefit of actually being consistent with that personal liberty thing they claim to support.
