Former Vice President Dick Cheney supports same-sex marriage, saying he prefers it when that right is given equally to all at the state level.
"'I think, you know, freedom means freedom for everyone,' Cheney said in a speech at the National Press Club. 'I think people ought to be free to enter into any kind of union they wish, any kind of arrangement they wish.'"
This should come as no surprise to anyone, Cheney has a gay daughter. What is encouraging is that the Republican Party is becoming more overtly in favor of something that they are stereotypically thought to all be against.
Is this a sign that the GOP is going through major changes like we have seen in the past with political parties at various times in history? Are Republicans becoming more overtly Libertarian?
