Certainly the economy, election, and certain foreign issues should have more coverage, but in regards to domestic issues, it should rank pretty high.

    SO this question has many dynamics so I qouted the conversation above because I feel practically idential to CC.

    Now on to the other topic:

    would I vote for someone that didnt support SSM? YES

    would I vote for someone against SSM? if they had pros that out weighed this con yes

    Would I vote for someone against SSM and campaigned on it and wanted to make laws making it harder? HELL ****ING NO because they would have proved they have no clue what "america" is about and I could support a someone like that.

    I got that, I just wanted to take advantage of the set up.

    It is important but I think feeding and sheltering our homeless and taking proper care of orphans is a much bigger issue... to name just a couple.

    Married gay couples could help with the orphan problem.

    Yeah, he announced that he opposes DOMA, and that he won't support any federal defense of DOMA.

    It would go against most of what I would do ordinarily, but if a party platform officially puts it on their plank, I would consider their seriousness on the matter. If they were serious and were more than likely to introduce it when the political capital was higher, I would probably vote for that party based on that.

    As far as the world goes it is not all that important. If you are homosexual it ranks much higher but still is not earth shattering. I think the entire topic is asinine as same sex marriage is really easy and should have been legal always. Fighting over this when people are starving seems so silly.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    It's a fluff issue only meant serious by those that are against it. I give it a 1.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Opposing DOMA isn't the same thing as supporting gay marriage, though. The problem with DOMA from a conservative perspective is that it is an usurpation of state authority by the federal government. IF a state decides to allow gay marriage, the federal government should recognize the marriage as well.
