    Re: a gay president ?

    I'm not dead set against it, but he/she would have to show themselves to be so socially and economically Right Wing in every other regard that they made Ronald Reagan look like Al Gore before I'd even consider voting for them. Needless to say, a gay version of Chris Cristie or John McCain wouldn't make the cut.

    Frankly, I'd be more than a little concerned that a member of such an extreme minority group managed to make it into the runnngs for the presidency in the first place. It would smack of a certain degree of demagoguery in my mind to say the least.

    Are we putting them up for election because they will best represent the interests of average Americans, or because they're a "token" homosexual and party strategists figure that support for homosexuality happens to be in vogue at the moment?

    It's a question worth considering.

    Actually, the no votes are of folks who have often posted in an anti-gay fashion. At least they were consistent and not fearful of presenting their views.

    Will be something along the lines of "I hate teh homos"

    I'm frankly surprised there aren't more. The 'other' category would be more interesting.

    well i believe thats what CC was talking about earlier but i cant really speak for him

    "currently" theres an absent of votes, many that have posted anti-gay and or bigotry that have not voted at all
    im not sure which is worse though?

    "IF" they have bigoted views those that are ashamed of them or those that are proud of them.

    My masterful theory is that they're older and will be waking in a few hours.

    WOW what a total rewrite/edit, were your ashamed of your original answer that is just in red

    why the addition? are you trying to give your original illogical lackluster statement a false shell of logic?

    Meh. I figured that the orginal statement came off as being overly harsh and probably needed a certain degree of clarification.

    The short answer is "probably not," simply because the candidate in question almost certainly wouldn't meet the criteria I have provided in any real world context.

    Sure I would but I would not vote for them only because they are gay.
