I need some inconsistency

An amalgamation of content: the aim not to politicise, but exercise. I'll think aloud about politics, technology, current news, as well as being a gay boy and what that really entails.

A Change of Heart?

"[Gay marriage is] a big deal for people. While they might not be gay, they may have a family member who is gay, a friend that's gay or a child that's gay," said Dale.

The largest gay republican group in the United States has come out, days before the election, not supporting Bush. As "the nation’s largest organization of Republicans who support fairness, freedom, and equality for gay and lesbian Americans" (link), the LCR's have questioned the Republican party's actions without distinctly expressing their disapproval for the candidates. Two weeks ago the executive director of the Log Cabin Republicans wrote to Chairman Edward Gillespie of the RNC to show disappointment with the party's actions.

"The RNC itself has admitted to sending mailers to voters in Arkansas and West Virginia that seek to equate the recognition of gay and lesbian families with banning the Bible. This dishonest and disgraceful mailing represents a new low in this election cycle."

The group has now apparently withdrawn their support for GW Bush in the 2004 elections. The time is ripe for an alternative.

The LCR should join the Libertarian Party. I don't think the Republican party can be salvaged, so it should be left to the wingnuts while the moderates & Libertarian-leaning republicans should form a new conservative party.
