They cannot overcome this without letting go of the far right, but they are addicted to depending on those votes, the far right win and fundamentalist religious.
Without the ignorant vote, they don’t think they have any chance.
The truth is, moderate republicans aren’t that bad ( I know blasphemy but bear with me here ) they really aren’t.
Moderate republicans and democrats agree on 95% or more of the issues.
But again, I don’t think they can give up the ignorant vote, and as long as they let that constituency decide who is nominated, they are sunk.
It may take a long time for them to fully understand this, and until they do, the Republican party will continue down the hole.
congradualtions to Bostonian scott prouty, who let romney define himself on that issue...... with that 47% video.

it let the country know where romney stood on fairness issues....

he was having trouble defining himself, so mr. prouty did it for him.....

The Democrats used to be the party of the ethnic voter, the working class, blue collar workers, civil servants, Jews, Catholics, supporters of the middle class, and the military. There was a time when conservative democrat wasn't an oxymoron. Not anymore, they morphed into the demo-rats. The "C", as in conservative, concern for the working class/middle class, caring about national defense, etc, has been dropped. Now it's let's see how far to the left we can go.
it still the party of all those catagories......except catholics.

it almost sounds like you tuned into an election on another planet.

the president clobbered romney on the fairness issue, and letting the bush tax cuts expire, which of course a vast majority supported..

Still is

the difference is we try to be inclusive, as we are better at math than republicans, they are trying to divide themselves into a majority, and they don’t understand when they remove these people or those people, why they are getting smaller, every time they lose ground they talk about getting rid of RINO’s

I will never forget a story from a political strategist that walked out of a republican strategy meeting, when asked why he left he said,“ Call me when you are more serious, when you understand that you need more votes, not less”

Gender apartheid is segregation of the sexes. Complete segregation. Homosexuals make up somewhere between 2 & 10% of the population depending upon what figures you cite. Just because two gay men get married doesn't mean they'll exclude women from their lives.
Of course everyone was born from male/female union (even if it is just through AI). So that is a non-starter. That still isn't a rational argument against same sex marriage. It is just your opinion. And I really don't see what you mean by it being anti-gay. That seems like quite a stretch IMHO. Perhaps you would like to explain how it is anti-gay.
I can take flying lessons and become a pilot. I do happen to have the qualifications to perform surgery. That was through a lengthy education and licensing process. The analogy still doesn't apply to homosexuals in general. Loads of heterosexuals don't really qualify as suitable marriage partners. At least not in my opinion, which should have no bearing on their ability to get married.
Even 'just a little bit' of segregation and apartheid is bad. Same sex marriage introduces a new form of segregation to perfectly integrated and diverse male/female marriage.

I agree that even a little bit is bad, that is why I am in Favor of same sex marriage, the same rules, the same law, justice for all, regardless of Race, Creed, Color, Sex, Religion, Orientation or National Origin.

Neither word applies to marriage, which is a legal joining of two adults that results in forming a family.

Why do you think that posting and re-posting such silly things will have any bearing on the topic? It doesn't get more sensible or relevent with age.

maybe it's like baying your finger with a hammer....the more you do it, the more desensitized your finger becomes & after a while, it just isn't noticed anymore?

then again, some folks are into that kinda thing. not me. but i've heard of them.

Referenced where?
Is this a fedreal or state law?
I dont give a crap about any religon
Which law mandates this for a marrage to be valid?
and dont talk about divorce, you can be divorced for no reason at all.
I am asking where is the law that will automatically invalidate, against both parties wishes, a marrage that is not consumated in the way you are describing?
I am pretty sure there isnt one, the government wont step in agains the wishes of a married couple and force them to devorce because they didnt have sex correctly ( according to you )
it is going to be a BIG blow to bigotry when the court strikes down prop hate tommrow, and then DOma

ALL of the arguemnets have been heard, and ALL of them from the right were pure non-sense...

you just confirmed what my claim was, that gays have LOWERR divorce rates....so far.

other countries are a good place to start when looking to see how an issue might play out here in america.
universal health care is another good example....
try to calm down, were more or less on the same side of this issue??? right??
you want GAYS to be able to marry??
I want gays to be able to be married...

There is no such thing as gay 'marriage'.

The minute you apply the word to ss couples, it no longer has the original meaning, and is diluted to simply a friendship.

Looks like the joke is on you...

Not sure I expect the result tomorrow

But there is no real question in my mind that it will be struck down.

And that will be glad news no matter how expected

Oh puh-leez. Quit trying to act like you know anything about science. The FACT that there has been a stable gay population across time and all cultures PROVES that homosexuality is normal. Homosexuality is found in EVERY species of animals (that reproduce sexually).
Oh Bee Essss.

Quit trying to act like you know anything about science. The fact that many genetic defects have a stable existence across time and all cultures proves that homosexuality is a defect.

Same sex sexual behavior (SSSB) is present in all species idiot, not homosexuality. Learn the difference so you don't look quite so stupid!

The government isn't "forcing" any view on you. You are free to be the country's biggest dumbass. No one can force you to accept the facts, but no one is going to excuse you for being a liar.

Wow... where you home schooled, you don’t appear to know anything of science at all.

The government is not forcing a view on marriage in 10 states, one district, nor in 16 other countries.

And more are coming to the right decision every year.

well, hmm. not exactly. many christian churches and denominations and other faiths are accepting homosexuals as clergy. many are also performing same sex marriages.
i know, this is about as disturbing to the "conservative" sects as allowing women to become preachers and pastors back in the 70s was. but they all continue.
and you might take note of the pre research study regarding faith in america. take particular attention to the numbers of the more conservative denominations that are falling at a greater pace than that of more "liberal" denominations (read : those that are on opposing sides of the same sex marriage debate).
good luck kimar. you'll be needing it.
Quite a stretch to say 'many'. The reality is that it is a shrinking minority who are a shadow of the substance and number of their heritage.

Please, why not post the specific survey? Might not say what you claim. Again.

then don't get gay married if it has no meaning to you.

you make your own marriage. just like anyone else does in their own marriage. if your marriage is diluted because some stranger across the street marries a same sex partner, or someone across town or across the state....that's pretty sad for you and a lousy excuse to use because you're not happy with marriage.

try again. you won't succeed. but try again.
