The Real Romney - Another secret recording shows what Romney really thinks about minorities, birth control, and public assistance.
In a new recording of a conference call that took place yesterday, Romney told his contributors that Obama’s strategy was to “focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote.” These gifts, Romney lamented, “add up to trillions of dollars” and were delivered to “targeted groups,” “especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people”
Sometimes I feel that if Liberals had their way, heterosexual marriages would be outlawed to allow for all homosexuals to be as far from repressed as possible.
By trying to help make one group of people feel accepted, you are systematically repressing everyone else who you feel has too many rights as it is. I’m not ashamed of who I am or what I stand for, so I will be damned if I let you take rights away from me.
That’s why I’m a Republican.
Yup, that’s our long-term goal. No more straights.
But for real, you ignorant ass: we don’t feel that straight people (a group that includes a lot of us liberals; it’s true, we’re not all militant atheist gays!) have “too many rights.” We feel that they (we) have a right that non-straight people don’t have, and that’s not fair. How come I’m able to marry the consenting adult that I love, and my gay friends aren’t? How would it “systematically repress” you to pass a law that wouldn’t affect you or your right to be married?
Do you really, seriously have any evidence or precedent whatsoever for liberals taking away marriage for straight people? No, you don’t, because that’s preposterous. Only Republicans believe that things like liberty and rights are a zero-sum game. We can allow non-straight people to get married AND still let straight people get married. It’s not like America has a finite number of marriage licenses and once we run out no one can get married any more.
Nobody’s trying to take away your rights. We’re just trying to make sure everyone has the same ones.
