    You want everyone else, to sacrifice their freedom, or have the government deny them their place to compete in the Olympics, so that you can make a stand for freedom?

    My God...

    Do you even realize what you are saying?

    If Russia is breaking it then it wouldn't really matter that we break it in protest of their breaking it.

    Staying home isn't breaking, it's taking a stand.

    Hard to say if that's the case. The law is to protect minors from seeing gay propaganda. We only have news reports to tell us what we know, unless someone reads Russian and look up the bill. I looked, but there isn't an English translation available. My understand is it is only the media and people using the media that can be jailed. How this all can be construes... no way of knowing unless someone fluent reads the law.

    That said... I do not trust what the media says to be completely accurate.

    Yes, and our law is by majority rule. The majority changes our laws.

    Did you know this law passed in Russia by something like 468 to 0...

    Maybe you should get used to the facts.

    And how do you feel when very few are going to stand with you?

    Maybe you should learn why the Founders feared and hated Democracy? It's why we aren't one.

    Now You are engaging in drama. No it is not death but having the opportunity to go after ones dream be dashed only for an impotent protest by an impotent President is a heart-wrenching thing to have done to a person. You are begining to worry me. I think you really do not understand other peoples feelings. I ask that you inwardly contemplate just what you are trying to do.
