I just can’t vote for a gay Republican…

| Sunday, May 11, 2014
Carl DeMaio
Carl DeMaio is running for the U.S. House of Representatives. He’s a fiscal conservative Republican, and that is why he won’t have the vote of this liberal Democratic lesbian.

I have to hope that if he does get elected he will vote on the side of supporting LGBTQ issues … but, then again, we all know that the words "gay" and "Republican" mix about as well as oil and water.

The people with the money have the power, and they want to mold their cities and towns to their own little standards, with their own little rules, their own little prejudices, and their own little innuendos. Those who struggle to keep their heads above the water have no money which means they have no power and their voice is very rarely, if ever, heard. They are considered “the other,” and the laws are never structured to their benefit ... LGBTQ citizens fall into “the other” category.
