Gay Republican Group Won't Endorse Bush<br><br>"Log Cabin in 2000 endorsed Bush against Democrat Al Gore (news - web sites), and in 1996 endorsed Republican Bob Dole against incumbent Democrat Bill Clinton.<br>About 1 million gay men and lesbians voted for Bush in 2000, Log Cabin has said."<br><br>Whew! The world almost makes sense again.<br><br>
They should be smart enough to know that a Constitutional Amendment banning gay marriage will never happen, and they shouldn't be so single-issue minded (as is their choice, of course.)<br><br>Well, there's always Ralph Nader for the LCR <br><br>
wow, 1 million is a BIG number. the question is if Bush won other 5 millions of conservative straight mens votes in return ;)<br><br>i guess the real blow would be if those 1m gay man would go and vote for Kerry instead.<br><br>

sadly, many voters do vote on a single issue with anti abortion probably gaining the largest percentage of single issue voters (e.g., my mom). abortion will not have any impact on my mom, but dubya will get her vote because of it, unfortunately (though, kansas doesn't matter). at least the gay republicans are basing their choice on a matter that would affect them directly.<br><br>"Tribal sovereignty means that, it's sovereign. You're a—you've been given sovereignty, and you're viewed as a sovereign entity. And, therefore, the relationship between the federal government and tribes is one between sovereign entities." dubya 8.6.04
So why does the Republican platform advocate the amendment?<br><br>A marraige ammendment would throw a monkeywrench into the Supreme Court regarding privacy laws, open up a lot of sure-fire ways to overthrow Roe v. Wade. Specially if Bush gets his chance to stack the court.<br><br><br><br>
