That's my main issue. Now petition your Congressmen.

Out of curiousity - if the democratic party dropped gun control, aboriton, safe working conditions, and cut health care, would you still side with them?

Gun control - I'm increasingly uninterested in it. Michael Moore, of all people, convinced me of that.

Abortion - I've already been torn on this issue for a long time. On one hand, I do think women who have abortions are killing living beings. On the other hand, I look to before Roe v. Wade, and women were still having abortions--just using unsafe, more creative methods. And the wealthy, of course, could just fly to another nation where it was legal and fly home as if nothing happened. In light of those facts, I lean towards "pro-choice" in the legal realm, while if anyone asked me personally for advice on abortion, I'd unquestioningly tell them not to do it.

Safe working conditions - Very important. No question.

Health care - What "health care"? How can we cut out of "zero"? We have no national health care. I also don't work full time right now, so I have no health care. You can't cut below zero.

I guess a good question to ask is whether I'd be more supportive of the GOP if they were truly "gay friendly"? I don't know. I guess it's like wondering what life would be like if the sky were green instead of blue.

That's about as smart as saying: do you know that "gays" will jump you if you're not too careful.

Drop the stereotypes, man, not every "religious" person is like that.

80's was being sarcastic. I thought the statement was hilarious.

Woops, it's just that I had my doubts. I apologize, 80's, for the misuderstanding.
