what I meant by "tolerated' was that those who are NOW bigoted might someday "tolerate" gays and LESBIANS so they join the rest of the humn race in ACCEPTING homosexuality as a normal choice...<quoted text>
Tolerated... who was it that said "Toleration is that wimpy thing we do when we cannot bring ourselves to accept reality" or something like that. I think it is funny how we hold that word on a pedestal, it is actually a wimpy compromise.
I donít happen to be gay, but I donít tolerate gays, I accept them as the fellow Americans they are.
Santorum, that is a real possibility, although the entire party is trying to shift to the center right now, I donít think they will be able to totally shut down the far right wing unless they run someone like that. Romney was not a hard right winger, although he certainly tried to sound like one.
You may be right, they may actually run a far right nut job, he ( or she ) will go down in flames of course, and then the republican party can finally split the far right off ( as they so desperately need to do ) if they do, they will pick up some independents, and a few moderate democrats and maybe we can finally have and election where we have an actual choice between 2 viable candidates.
It wont happen before 2016, so if Hillary still wants to be president, she would win it in a walk.
There will always be bigots, I cannot claim to be perfect myself, but it is something I fight in myself all the time.
I just try and remain true to my patriotism, this country is the land of the free, where justice wears a blindfold, blind to Race, Creed, Color, Sex, Religion, Orientation or National Origin. Where justice is more important than tradition, where our people regardless of our differences are held to the same rule of law.
right now, all i see is compeat disarray and civil war in the rethuglican party.
you must have seen some clips from CPAC.....although they WANT to sem mre moderate??? they JUST arnt.
the far right has truly hijacked their party....
and i say to them, here is another shovel, keep digging.
ive never seen a political situaltion like this before...
where the press is talking about polls that support the next democratic candidate, JUST WALKING in the general.....
but it may be a reality if the lunatics keep control overe there.
she even beat christie in a NJ poll for president..
it is truly time for a woman to lead this nation...
and politically, she is like the defacto VP, because biden isnt a serious contender(she beat him 61% to 12% in a poll released in december)
because SHE won almost half the vote in the 08' primaries, another thing that hadnt happened for a long time.
looks like it might be president CLINTON until 25'?
then the torch will be passed, to a candidate born in the 1960's or 70's.
