Do the right think, Barack.

Please tell everyone how wrong it is to discriminate against gays. You will gain my vote this November for having the balls to say it regardless of how much of the black vote you will lose.

If Ron Paul is not on the ballot I'll be casting my vote for you. I hold honor and integrity in the highest regard and I have no doubts about yours.

RE: Do the right think, Barack.
Shit server; I can't pull up the article.

I realize Pres. O's determination to have others follow his example and behave according to their conscious works for me, but some people can't see the forest through the trees and may not feel they have an opportunity to meet that kind of conscious challenge. (stupid, but human.)

He needs to find a spine and make a stand on this ... and a few other things I can think of. Thumbsup

RE: Do the right think, Barack.
Copied an excerpt below:

Quote: "At a certain point, I've just concluded that for me personally, it
is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples
should be able to get married," Obama told ABC News.


The president, who was previously opposed to the unions, explained
that he's gone through an "evolution." Obama said he initially thought
civil unions would suffice as a vehicle to give same-sex couples the
rights commensurate with those of heterosexual couples. "I'd hesitated
on gay marriage in part because I thought civil unions would be
sufficient," he said.


But he said his position evolved over the years, "as I have talked to
friends and family and neighbors, when I think about members of my own
staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex
relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those
soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on
my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell
is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage."

Damn it, now I can't dislike him as much.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy
