"Throwback Mountain"

I guess I'm a throwback.

The Detroit News has a regular columnist (every single Monday) by a woman named Deb Price; she is a lesbian and her columns only have one theme -- gay issues.

Today she is mad at the Democrats because they take millions in gay dollars in campaign funds, take millions of gay voters for granted, and don't do a thing for them.

That is probably for a good reason. The Democrats are not completely stupid and they know that the majority of Americans do not support same-sex marriage and other such issues. It used to be that they could vote the way the American people wanted while winking at Supreme Court justices who would later bypass the will of the American people by "creatively interpreting" the Constitution to find new meanings. They may not be able to do that any more; at least I hope not.

I think you are right, the Dem's are suddenly realizing that they probably don't hold the courts anymore, and would probably have a hard time getting the gay agenda through without them.

I think Ann Coulter hit the nail on the head when she said "Democrats don't even know what they stand for any more".

Democrats are so busy trying to appeal to moderates(and realizing their "values" aren't too popular with mainstream America) that they don't even know what they believe.

This is another example of the Second Law of Thermodynamics! The dummakrats power is wasting away! LOL! I pray that the Republicans will take this into consideration and realize that conservative America demands more from them than they have put forth and that they need bigger gonads!

Yikes Neo .. I thought all Dems had little tiny .. tiny .. tiny ... gonads ... that's why they side with the queers. There ashamed to show them in public.

I really hope you guys squash the gay agenda. Were working on it up here as well, if Harper will ever put it to a free vote... :-(

The democrats do that with all their constituent groups and you would think eventually it would catch up to them.

The problem is Deb Price will probably whine, complain and stomp her feet but still vote democrat the next time around.

Well, she sure isn't going to vote Republican! That goes without saying. Personally, I have no issue with Gays. That being said, I am against gay marriage. I feel that they should have the same rights as married people as straight married people do: hospital visitations, be able to inherit property, etc. but do not call that marriage. Those of you who claim to be Christian, I don't think God would tell us to answer love with hate, and being bigoted against gays is NOT what Jesus would do. Let's not get all Fred Phelps here.
On the wider issue, I don't know if Democrats will make any headway against the Republicans. Their problem right now is catering to every fringe group out there. With W's approval rating at 36%, and even Republicans backing away from Bush, this is their chance. I don't think they will get it together though, especially if they nominate Hillary or Dean (god help us). I know you guys are very right wing but the rest of the country is equally divided, so it could be a real crap shoot.

What do you consider far right and far left? I do not consider myself far right. (believe me, there are people far to the right of myself - people like Pat Buchanan turn my stomach with their diatribes, and I am frequently rolling my eyes at Joseph Farrah at World Net Daily.)

Yes Bush's numbers are low. Have you considered the possibility that part of the problem he is facing is conservatives who are tired of him betraying their principles? (such as his refusal to defend the southern border or to cut federal spending in non-defense areas.) A mere approval rating tells us nothing except that people are unhappy, but without knowing why the info is useless.

Well SR, you're certainly not a moderate. I think I'm a centrist, slightly right leaning, but compared to some of the people out there, I'm a hippie liberal. Even though I own guns and voted for Dole in '96 and McCain in the 2000 primary. I'm just not in support of the govt. being in my business, or anyone else's.

By the way, you ever gonna stop by my blog and say hello?
