Fact: By definition gay/lesbians, bisexuals or transgender are not sexual deviants, but if want to go by definition (IE some is is turned on by Non-human objects, The suffering or humiliation of oneself or one's partner, Children, Non-consenting persons) then you would find that it is infact the otherway around the majority would be on the republican side.

Middle class whites primarily vote republican for these reasons:
1. Religion - their preaches are telling them that democrats are "Godless" people
2. They don't like the fact that so many blacks are in the democratic party
3. They are uneducated, most just have a high school diploma
4. They do not embrace diversity, ie., gay equality or women's rights
5. They believe that democrats will take away their guns.
Analysis: Christianity is suppose to bring people together as brothers and sisters, even with their differences. But it doesn't. It discriminates and causes more divisions than unity. Instead of embracing diversity, it demonizes it. Uneducated people, the masses in America, don't think beyond a one line talking point. They don't look at issues with nuance or depth. They are very black and white thinkers. For instance, they believe that democrats will take away their guns.
All in all, this segment of America is downright ignorant and I don't mean that in a vicious way. I say that with a great amount of exasperation.
To believe that God is sitting up there in the heavens judging people by the color of their skin or their sexuality or their religion, is just plain stupid. It ain't happening people. God is love and that it is all God is. Man judges. Man divides. Man dominates. Man destroys. God loves.
Education is the key. People must read and explore and become curious about the world rather than sit together in their own backyards and condemn others who are different from them.
Until this happens, nothing will ever change. It will only get worse. For no one wants to be less than anyone else.
On a financial note, these folks who think that they should pay no taxes and that government is evil will have a rude awakening when their social security and medicare are not there for them in their golden years and when their high school education is not able to support them with a job that pays a livable wage. And when the environment around them wreaks havoc on their health and they have no insurance to take care of themselves.
You all better hope that the rich will take care of you. Because without a government for and by the people, we the people will have to depend on the wealthy plutocrats to make up the difference. History has already proven this to be a failed solution.
So keep voting republican and you will surely face these consequences. God will continue to love you, but God will not bail you out of these grim circumstances. Only you can do that by educating yourself, learning how to love all people, and surrendering your own fears and prejudices. Good luck. We're all depending on you.

Most people vote Republican due to the sensationalism and practiced deception that the republican party relies on to reach their goal. A nation of the wealthiest 10% ushered in by their ability to sell lies and be heard.

This is just so funny. Republicans are in favor of those who can do the most to line their pockets. That's the bottom line. Nothing the Republicans do benefits the poor or middle class. That is a fact. It is also a fact that if it wasn't for the Bush administration dragging America into a war against Iraq that was based completely on a pack of lies spoon fed to America, we wouldn't be as financially screwed as most poor and middle class families are. People who actually work for a living are just cannon fodder to Republicans.

Now that I am sober, most of the racist crap comes from the left wing nut democrats. I mean sh!t most Black democrats voted for Obama because of race. I t always seems to me that most democrats don't play the race card, but the race card is always played by a democrat.

Fact: Over 95 percent of sexual deviants (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and transsexual 'people' are Democrats.

I have to agree. The democrats have kept the poor and minorities down with their policies. They promise them the world and deliver social programs aimed at keeping them poor while making them think they are helping them. Democrats have only helped FRINGE groups such as the homosexual community because they know the homos will leave their party if they don't come through for them. The poor are now tired of being kept poor by the democrats and are starting to see the light and so are voting republican.

The lower or middle class that have been duped into voting for Republicans, are not the sharpest tools in the shed. They react to hot button issues. For some its guns ( they are told that the Democrats want to take their guns away-nonsense, if we ever lose our Constitutional right to own guns it will be at the hands of a republican under the guise of "Patriot act II" or some other misnamed law. Or they sell themselves as the party of Jesus- more nonsense. What dis Jesus teach? Take care of the sick, feed the hungry, house the homeless-hardly Republican values. Anti gay sentiments- "Ye doth protesteth too much" it seems more Republicans are getting caught in comprimising positions of a gay nature than Democrats. The other and probably most overwhelming reason, boiled down to it's core is racism. They perceive that the Republicans don't like blacks, hispanics, etc., which is true, and that fits them perfectly. The Republicans feed on these issues to sucker votes out of these people, and only pass legislation favoring the rich, and the dummies just aren't paying attention enough to think it through and see how they are being played. The knuckle heads will argue these points with you, they are so brainwashed, you can't reason with them. If people were actually thinking, the Republicans would get about 1% of the vote, Democrats and independants would get the rest.

The primary difference between the parties is one of responsibility. The Democrats believe big government should make your decisions for you. Republicans want to make their own. Simple. I earn $32,000 a year. Someday I want to make $32,000 an hour. I can't do that under the Democrats. My entire family are Chicago 1st Ward Machine Democrats. None of them ever owned a business. Many of them work for the government - probably most of them. They've never been out from under the protective umbrella of the Dems and they'd better jump when their bosses tell them to. Not for me. Get out of my life, get out of my pocket. I'm a Republican.
