    As I said before, I would still vote for a homsexual candidate if they matched my views on matters like foreign policy, economics, and domestic reform more so than the the candidate they were running against.



    No problem.
    1.) off then that you wouldnt simply answer yes in the poll, doesnt make you wrong but odd that you just assume negatives because of the gay, NOT saying you equate gay with negative, dont misunderstand just saying that the majority just simply assumed if all was equal.

    2.) now many instead of just one?
    just curious what policies do you suspect wouldnt match yours because of them being gay

    3.) thanks again

    have you seen pics of some of the world leaders? if one is going to be so shallow (meaning world leaders no you) one should simply look in the mirror

    not to mention on a world stage everything can be judged shallowly

    height, weight, skin color, race, religion, wife, etc etc who cares what they thing if thats all the brain power they are capable off.

    If I agreed with his policies. His sexual orientation plays zero bearing on my decision making process.

    They'd be shocked for about 5 minutes, then they'd keep suckling on the American power-tit.

    Can he balance a budget? Ensure liberty and freedom? End corporatism? Those are the only things that matter.

    Lmao. I suppose you're right. I know when it comes to the world stage and world leaders perception of strength and all that crap is important. And if that is true then would some of our less than forward thinking neighbors perceive our leader, and the nation by extension, as weak? But I guess that's what diplomats and ambassadors are for. I'm no expert on foreign affairs so maybe none of that matters. I don't know. Guess there's only one way to find out for certain. We'd survive though, always have and always will.

    Depends entirely on his/her qualifications, ideology, and leadership abilities. Probably not, though, because I don't see it being very likely that [s]he would have any military experience (important, since the POTUS is also commander in Chief of US Military forces), nor do I find it likely that they would be of a conservative lean.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I'm willing to bet many, if not most, Americans already have.

    This is a reasonable answer.

    Even if I did, then you'll have the gay minions with expectations just like Obama's black minions wanting Obama phones and the bacon brought to Detroit in return for voting for him.
    This is not. Every candidate has their "minions" looking for perks. It's part of the landscape of politics.

    What doesn't affect our decision making ability? I'd say that if it's a part of us, defines us individually, then it is going to affect our decision making ability. Sure, you can pony up, play the public relations game, and spew pleasant propaganda stating how unbiased you are. But those $.05 ploys don't work with real people living in the real world. As robotic and removed as we try to be, we are involved and very much human.
