He could sign an executive order whenever he wishes to. When are you guys going to wake up to the fact that he is NOT in favor of equality for us ? Why do you persist in believing in things that are demonstrably untrue ?

Face it. The Obamaniac is a LIAR and is Evil. PURE EVIL.

Forcing perversions and depravities onto the American people will ultimately backfire, even for Communist Democrats using gays as methods to invade our civil institutions with moral and religious destruction.

I can answer that. He'll endorse Timothy Treadwell, the suicide and homicide by bear guy, who homosexuals like to claim as their own.

You do know that "Libertarian" and "libertine" are different things, right?

Definition of LIBERTINE
1
usually disparaging : a freethinker especially in religious matters
2
: a person who is unrestrained by convention or morality; specifically : one leading a dissolute life

Then please ignore my previous post. Did spell-check "fix" a misspelling of "Libertarian" by replacing it with "libertine"? If so, I'm amused, because your mocking definition of "Libertarian" really does seem similar to the actual definition of "libertine".

No one is "forcing" you. If being gay isn't for you, then don't do it. But your random-word-generator "argument" gives you no power to tell OTHERS how to live.

You people will have a lot more credibility when you learn what words mean, and how to use them. Communism is an ECONOMICAL system, not a political one. Morals measure HARM, not sexual activity between consenting adults.

Religion is bringing its OWN destruction, by attempting to force EVERYONE to follow religious rules, by preaching doctrines that are harmful and counter to reality, and by actively encouraging division and conflict between people based on trivial differences.

So you'll be throwing away your vote on a candidate without a chance of winning.

On top of that, every vote against Obama is in essence a vote for the Republican candidate.

But then you're never been know for your intelligence.....

Re-election politics means no further advancements for gay rights until after Nov. Pushing anything now means possibly jeopardizing the President's re-election. With Justice Ginsburg on her deathbed we simply can not afford to lose this election.

Your opinion of your own respect is overblown. No one cares about gaining your respect. We want equal treatment from the GOVERNMENT. The rest of you are free to be as disrespectful as the law allows.

I do not touch drugs, nor alcohol, nor meat for religious reasons. I also have not had sex in nearly 20 years, because it is simply to dangerous to do so nowadays in my opinion.

And I haven't voted for the Republican candidate for POTUS in several decades.

I'm a Libertarian and vote that way.

And as always, in this post I have been fair. And Balanced.

If you voted for anyone besides the Democratic candidate in any election then in essence you voted for the Republican.

1. UNTRUE

2. I have voted in EVERY election since 1976, and I have NEVER voted for a Democrat and NEVER will. There is NO DIFFERENCE between a Democrat, Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, or Uncle Joe Stalin.

I'm a Libertarian, a Constitutional Strict Constructionist, a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, and believe EVERY law-abiding American citizen should own at LEAST 2 hand guns, a rifle, 2 shotguns, one .50 caliber machine gun and 14,000 rounds of ammunition just as I do. It's your RIGHT ! If you choose to throw your RIGHTS away, that's your own fault.
