Americans have become a drugged and pathetic people. Therefore, they can't perceive the real threats and conspiracies of the mental illness called homosexuality and doper mentalities. Gays can tell them right to their faces (as they have) that they are going to kill a number of them by intentionally infecting them with AIDS and they go silent in fear and confusion. We have to stand up to demons and darkness, not shove it under a rug and let it infect our nation and youth.

He's a loud mouth Roman Catholic, trying to push his Roman Catholicism on other Americans thru civil law.

I would never vote for anyone for POTUS who is not a Protestant.

Lets see, a majority of American's support marriage equality. So with the 95% that agree with the frothy ex senator and the 51+% that support equality, that makes 146%. Something doesn't add up. Hmmmmm, what could it be?

So gay men and women are mentally ill. Would love to know where you get your facts from. The rest of what you wrote makes no sense unless someone else lives in your brain. Get a life and I challenge you to get to actually know a few gay men and lesbians but you probably don't have the balls nor courage to do it.

SO... all men are to be as sexually repressed as he is, never knowing what their bodies are capable of aside from a quick ejaculation...

And all women are to be brood mares to this race of willfully ignorant men...

Thus ends the Age of Reason and the Age of Enlightenment.

When will people like him realise that he is but a rock in a stream-bed.... the water flows around him; he does NOT block its way to the sea... in fact, over time, the water wears him down into sand...

Well the consolation is that we won't have to be hearing about his presidential campaign much longer. He is at the bottom of the heap. Why doesn't the guy save some face and just bow out, already? Santorum, Bachmann, and Pawlenty should all be fading away soon. They might make a few waves in Iowa, but they don't play well in the rest of these United States, not even within their own party.
Unfortunately neither does Obama. One of their lot seems likely to be elected next year.

You certainly can't blame gay folks for the difficiencies of heterosexual parents, and the lack of their parentling skills.

The things they let their kids watch, the video games they let them play, the music they let them listen to, and they way they often ress them is sad, but no gay couple, or their kids, can be blamed for that lack of judgement.

And a man with character certainly won't fight to deny hard-working tax-paying Americans equal protection under the laws of this country, or take such a bigoted anti-family, anti-child stance on marriage.

Bigorty and irrationality are NEVER a sign of good character.

End of wars, invasions means at least 20% of spends and it could be used for social issues. End of this mad, global expansion of usa all over the world will bring more money to state and it can be used for social issues. But naturally it must be such candidate, who understand s it just like Ron Paul. He should be president there.

They were infected with AIDS on television? How did that happen, exactly?

Rick belongs to that wing of the republican party that believes in smaller government except when it comes to people's personal lives then he believes that the federal goverment needs to control every aspect of what we do with our own bodies. Makes perfect sense.

Rick just keeps pushing and pushing, stopping once in a while to adjust his position and adds some slick, oily statements to overcome the friction and push-back he is experiencing. Meanwhile the ring of support around him gets frothier and frothier from foaming at the mouth. When he finally comes to understand what is going on, he will have shot his wad in an infertile place.
