    Here’s a side-by-side comparison of political party platforms, showing the 12 areas in which Republicans are oppressing LGBT people, vs. the 12 areas in which Democrats are showing us respect.

    I don’t trust any politician on any level. They can’t spend only the money they raise and they always want to limit our freedoms in an effort to control the public. The issue of gay marriage is a simple one - PEOPLE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO MARRY WHO THEY WANT TO! And until that is the case both political parties will use it as a wedge issue to control the voters.

    Marriage equality won in several states remains mostly symbolic until the Defense of Marriage Act is repealed. DOMA was signed into law by Bill Clinton. The Democrats could have repealed it when they controlled the House and Senate in the first two years of Obama’s first term but chose to do nothing. Inaction speaks more loudly than rhetoric in a platform.

    No actually the Senate would have killed repeal by fillibuster, get rid of the fillibuster and then we as a nation have a chance of a functioning government.
