I wouldn't rule him out just yet. You may not have heard of him, but I have. And you may think it's too late in the race, but I don't think the race has even started yet. The GOP doesn't have a clue who should be their candidate yet because most of the choices we've seen are not electable. Admittedly some democrats might vote republican if they had a reasonable candidate. I wish Americans were ready for more parties than two, and I don't mean just tea and libertarian, since they aren't taken seriously by most people.
As with all things, change takes time. I don't side with either party and register Independent. Things being as they are, I'm likely to vote Ron Paul this time around.

If the Bible is to be taken literally, then I guess someone has to come up with a good explanation on how the human race evolved from Adam and Eve. Because God created only Adam and Eve, right? So how did the human race go from only 2 (Adam and Eve) to almost 7 billion in ... how long? 6,000 years? 10,000 years?

I am bisexual, which means I'm neither homosexual or heterosexual, and I didn't choose to be bisexual either. If I'm with a man, I'm not homosexual, I'm still bisexual... and if I'm with a woman, I'm not heterosexual, I'm still bisexual. Like anyone else, I can choose who I have sex with, but I can't choose who I'm attracted to. I wish I could, because I'm way too picky for my own good.
You are right about the neither part but I would think that bisexuality is both, a combination of homosexuality and heterosexuality and most of the time to different degrees on a spectrum. Homo means same and hetero means opposite and bisexuals like the same and the opposite gender so in a way it's like being both heterosexual and homosexual but bisexuality isn't exclusive to homosexuality or heterosexuality it is both orientations which combine into one. Saying that I'm not saying that they cannot be exclusive to one gender or person.

But I'm sure you think everyone is born heterosexual though. This homosexual here was never heterosexual. "I was born this way!," just like Lady Gaga says.

You mean homosexuality and lesbianISM. Lesbian or lesbianism was not necessary to be included in the sentence because they too fall under homosexuality. It's sort of weird how straight guys always differentiate when it comes to gay men and lesbians like lesbianism is the lesser of the evils in their eyes and possibly an erotic turn on.

I looked at the blog. It just goes to prove that straight people never mind shoving their sexuality in everyone's faces especially gays.

It's a matter of semantics or how you prefer to look at it. The concept that bisexuality is BOTH heterosexuality and homosexuality combined is valid in my opinion. I choose to say it is neither in this context to help illustrate my point that I am not "switching" orientations back and forth if I go from dating women to dating men. I did not switch from heterosexuality to homosexuality, I have always been bisexual regardless of who I date. This goes to explaining that I do not "choose" at one time to be attracted to women, and another time "choose" to be attracted to men.

And for the record, I do not date both at the same time, nor am I into threesomes.

I know you're aware of these things but I'm explaining it for anybody else who might be reading. Many people have this notion that bisexuality implies having a "choice" of which sexual orientation to be, which they regard as a binary (two choices, heterosexual or homosexual/opposite or same). That is of course, inaccurate. I've even been told that bisexuals are inherently selfish or greedy, which again implies a "choice" that was never made. I am attracted to both sexes, but that doesn't mean I need to have relationships with both sexes in order to be fulfilled. I am admittedly monogamous.

I looked at the blog too... an enormous amount of content on a single page. Admittedly, I only skimmed it, but I did not see anything relevant to the statement in his post about orientation being a personal choice. Just a lot of stuff about sexuality in general. Some people seem to think that posting a link automatically validates their point regardless of what is on the page.

Insect sex??? You mean incest, I guess?:-)

OK, let's assume there was incest. Then Cain had sex with his mother, and they may have gotten several children (both sons and daughters). But at the same time Adam and Eve may have had more children (both sons and daughters). Either way, some of these "new" sons and daughters must have had sex, and the result must have been more children. Or the Bible is simply wrong about Adam and Eve being created by God. Or God created a lot more people, but forgot to tell anyone. Busy day, I guess ....

Anyway, according to Genesis 4:25-26, Adam and Eve got a third son called Seth, and Seth got a son called Enosh. So who was Enosh's mother? Was it Eve? We need to know this! Right?

Unless it is rape or some other form of attack, same sex intercourse is a choice.

Being attracted to a same sex gender is not the same thing as homo-sexual behavior.

Lol, right!
Anyway, how can who you feel attraction for be a choice? That's like saying oh I like skinny girls but today I choose to like morbidly obese ones. Just doesn't work like that! Either someone turns you on sexually or they don't!

"Homosexuality" is a label. The substance of what homosexuality is comes from the result of various interactions between the individual and the environment throughout the individual's life, some aspects of these interactions are choices and if someone tried and put in enough focus and effort they could get their mind to respond differently to sexual stimuli. Not that it would be worth the effort, unless you're trying to expand your sexuality, not shrink it.

Homosexuality is NOT a choice? That's what the gays want you to believe. That they were (LOL) born that way. Forget about the marriage and children; that was only a diversion.

For a male to produce children he must acheive an erection and reach a climax. To do that he must be sexually aroused by the female. Who's zooming who?

wow! so having hetero sex is not a choice? what is the difference between attraction and homosexual "behavior"? look, just because some people dont agree with someone having sex with the same gender doesnt mean its not ok for it to occur and also, aside from involuntary sex, consentual sex where it be with man or woman is often part of building a relationship as adults intimacy, therefore having sex is natural and that includes homosexual sex. its not a type of behavior it is what it is sex between two adult people. heterosexuals do it all the time so why can people who prefer the same sex or both not act upon those feelings also? homosexuality isnt something that was invented by liberals its real and its damn ok to be gay. its not ok to suppress your feelings and nature, that just causes anguish.
