    How was it that low? Looks like 24% of the people in Russia are about to disappear to the gulag!

    Don't make jokes like that. You're probably hovering too close to the possible...if not the probable.

    I wasn't referring to you. I meant the general population under Colonel Putin.

Just goes to show the true ignorance of the left who believes it is the role of the Federal Govt. to legislate social issues rather than the state and local governments

    To me the number one issue that trumps every other is the economy. With a strong economy the social issues will solve themselves but you will only see liberals diverting from the economy to those social issues. Democrats have been in control of the economic policies since 2007 and look at what we have today, high unemployment/under employment, stagnant economic growth, massive increase in debt, and Obamacare.

    This is exactly what you get with poorly a informed electorate who elected a community agitator that had zero leadership skills or executive experience.
    Well it goes to show the ignorance of the right, because if the economy is SOOOO important to them, they wouldn't focus on social issues. It's BOTH parties to blame.

    What's more damaging for the country Con, two gay people marrying or the economy in shambles? Answer that. Yet the right continues to fight AGAINST SSM even though it's clear it will eventually be legalized, so OBVIOUSLY it is more important than the economy to them or they wouldn't be fighting against SSM. That is the TRUE ignorance of the right. But at least I take comfort in seeing the right more and more becoming tolerant of SSM. Maybe then we can get back to the economy instead of the right fighting against something they KNOW they will lose on anyway.

    Because the right understands that social issues start at home and if not solved there are the responsibility of the local and state government, not a Federal one size fits all where a bureaucrat decides what is best for you.

    See, there you go again, usurping state laws with your gay issue. If my state adopts gay marriage, so be it, but it is state issue, not a Federal one. With 20 million Americans unemployed/under employed., 250 BILLION a year in debt service, stagnant economic growth, and a 17.3 trillion dollar debt why is SSM even an issue?

    Again Con, what's more important, the economy or two gays marrying to you? You keep claiming that people should be concerned over the economy yet you CONS keep fighting SSM. So stop fighting it so we can get to the economy. But you don't want that, you want to keep fighting SSM over the economy.

    Why is SSM an issue for you then, the economy should be. Legalize SSM so we can focus on the economy, afterall it is quite clear SSM is going to be legalized eventually anyway you and other cons are WASTING time.

    Very simple, the economy effects everyone so the economy is much more important. SSM is a state issue and has no impact on fighting for a strong economy except to liberals who get in the way.

    If you want to legalize SSM then do it through the states. If you want to marry your partner, move to a state that allows it. Problem solved. Isn't this a great country?

    Stop fighting the legalization of SSM so we can get to the economy, problem solved. But Cons like you don't want that or care about the economy. You care more about fighting against the legalization of SSM more. So sleep in the bed you made Con. YOU and other Cons care MORE about fighting against the inevitable than the economy.

    When you wonder why people don't focus on the economy look at yourself in the mirror and there's one of the people to blame.
