    I didnt participate and its pointless to participate in any of them, because any points anti ssm individuals make, extorts the same pat answers from the same people, who cant present a real argument except for redundant sarcasm.

    I wasnt singling you out...I meant the topic and thank you for recognizing my service to the county. I will let your sarcasm pass because you thought I was attacking you...which I was not

    Still, your one of my favorite posters on here but..no one wants to understand the other side, they want to just attack the other side ad nauseam with the same statements over and over...no one even pays attention to anyone that posts against it or what they say.

    Are you going to back that up?
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.

    Id LOVE to understand the otherside, I myself have admitted personally Im not exactly gay friendly but I do support them having equal rights.

    I listen to ANYTHING logical whether it goes against me or not.

    Man, if you served (I was actually using it as a silly name) go to the link *help, mods, HELP!* where you can select what branch you served for and they will give you an icon (like mine).

    The reason I joined a political debate forum was to understand how conservatives think and to get away from my preconceived notions of who I thought they were.

    I didn't join DP to be in constant hack-attack mode. I love civil and intellectually stimulating discussion, and to that end I am genuinely interested in why some individuals are against same-sex marriage and if they can provide a solid logical defense for their position. Because from my point of view, there really isn't a logical reason to be against same-sex marriage.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    That's why I'm asking, too. I want to understand.
