Wonder what a psychologist would say about the fact that your choice of wording"Odumba-lovers " bares a striking similarity to racist rhetoric.

It's unbelievable how anyone Gay could vote for Romney.

I'm a proud Gay man and I fully support Gov. Romney. Not all of us are "single issue" voters. I voted for Obama last time and I don't think he has earned re-election.

Gays have all sorts of opinions just like every one else in America.

Consider it a fantastical theoretical question.

What will you say IF the present POTUS is defeated for reelection ?

And what did you say when Carter was defeated for reelection ?

I may not agree with everything Obama has done, but I'm not disappointed enough to commit hari-kari by voting for Romney.

There is a chilling article in the latest New Yorker about Romney's involvement with the American Family Association and its Issues Analyst, pastor Bryan Fischer, the radio talk show host who pressured Romney to fire Richard Grinnell, Romney's openly gay national security spokesperson. Fischer is also a member of the AIDS denial movement.

Our community cannot afford four years of living under a President who panders to those that hate us and would see us stripped of our Constitutional rights. GOP Proud might be willing to sell their souls for financial gain. I will not.

Really ? First president to openly say to the American people he supports gay marriage, first president to repeal DADT, Signed The Mathew Shepard Hate crimes prevention into law, Lead a UN measure to restore sexual orientation to the definition of human rights, Declared the DOMA unconstitutional. Should I say more. You should really look at what he did to the Gay community he has done more and open the doors for more serious discussion and not behind closed doors as it was in the past. Romney will do quite the opposite to destroy all that was built.

You may be a gay man, but if you support someone who doesn' believe you're even worthy of equal rights, you can hardly call yourself proud.

I couldn't agree more. Anyone gay voting for Romney is just... well, that kind of self-hatred is gross.

I can't believe anyone would dare call themselves proud, and then turn around and say they support someone who considers them less-than-human. And make no mistake, the Right considers us less-than-human. If they did not, they would respect our rights and not try to pass legislation that limits our natural-born right to the pursuit of happiness like every other American.

You may not agree with all of Obama's policies, but presidential elections are usually a choice between a douche and a turd--you have to be one of the two to make in anywhere in politics. Pick the lesser of two evils (and with Romney's incredibly obvious ignorance, arrogance, greed, and malicious actions towards all minorites, he's practically got to have a Faustian deal going on.)

A gay being a member of the Republican Party is like a Jew being a member of the Nazi Party.

Republicans HATE gay people and want to make them into second class citizens, just like how Republicans want to make non-whites, women, non-Christians into second class citizens.

Why would any gay person vote against their own rights? You have to be nuts to vote for Mitt Romney who plans making it a constitutional ban on gay marriage and civil unions. Just look at what Obama has done for gay rights:

* Opposes Proposition 8
* Signed the UN declaration calling for the decriminalization of homosexuality around the world.
* Signed the Matthew Shepperd Act into law making it a federal crime to kill/attack someone for their sexual orientation and gender identity.
* Ordered federal government to allow same sex couples to visit their partners in hospitals
* Stopped the deportation of same sex couples from the USA
* Stopped defending the so called Defense of Marriage Act and wants to repeal it.
* Signed and repealed Don't Ask Don't Tell
* Said he would sign into law the Employment Non-Discrimination Act act making it federal ban on firing someone for their sexual orientation and gender identity.
* Came out in favor of marriage equality.

Most pro-gay president in US history. Obama 2012

Why are you asking me? I was still writing my first post on the topic while you were posting your questions. It's not like I ignored you, and it's not as though you were addressing me directly. That said, I don't mind answering you.

When Carter was defeated for re-election, I prayed that Ronald Reagan, who had been pro-gay at one point during his tenure as Governor of California, would at least do no harm. I was neutral. By the end of his first term, his refusal to address the AIDS crisis while people around me were dying earned him my everlasting disdain, and a disrespect that borders on enmity.

Should Romney defeat Obama, I will steel my spine just as I did when George W assumed office. It would be instructive to watch Romney try to appease the far right, who are bound to lash back at him when he is unable (or unwilling) to be the President they are demanding. That is an uneasy alliance at best. Regardless of who wins in November, I expect the bitter partisanship to continue.

As far as where you are living ...? The location is absolutely none of my business. Nonetheless, I hope you are happy there.

Thank you for being the only one to answer my questions, but I was looking more for what you will say about the judgment of teh American people if our present POTUS is defeated (which is looking more likely with each passing day.:)) care to address that ?

Some people just prefer money over dignity. It DOES remind me of the few Jews who did support Hitler in the 1930's. Sad, so sad...

I see, and thanks for clarifying your question.

If Obama is defeated in November, I think that will clearly indicate that the majority of voters are dissatisfied to the point that they would be willing to take a chance on Romney being the answer to their problems ... a chance that they were not willing to take four years ago when he lost the Republican nomination to McCain.

I think such a decision would not work in my personal best interests, but would be more than willing to be proved wrong. As far as judging the American people's choice? Well, that's part of the problem, isn't it? Americans are increasingly unwilling to accept the results of the electorate, and choose to tear down rather than to build up their chosen leaders.

If you'll allow me to cut to the chase, I don't think the President, when he or she is following the Constitution, has as much power as most people think. I think at the present time, most of the country's ills are being perpetuated by SCOTUS (and judging from their historically low approval ratings, most of the country agrees with me), and especially by the Congress and the Senate.

From my personal perspective, I think the most important change that the American people should be demanding is not a change in the Executive Office, but the imposition of terms limits in the Legislative and Judicial branches of our government.

Thank you for answering.

As far as term limits for the congress and judiciary are concerned, for either or both of those things to happen, the U.S. Constitution would have to be amended, and the reality is that that is not gonna happen.

If you want to amend the U.S. Constitution, I think that THE MOST IMPORTANT amendment that should be put forth and ratified, is that the federal budget MUST be balanced each year, with the SOLE EXCEPTION being IF congress declared war on one or more countries, and that declaration of war would have to be renewed each year for that declaration to remain in effect.(And although the U.S. Congress declared war on Germany and Japan in 1941, peace treaties formally ending the state of war were not signed until more than 10 years later).
