Normal

I find it rather amusing that a "diplomat" would say something along the lines of "the magic is over for the US". Not very diplomatic now, is it?

As much as we all enjoy Melon's musings, I doubt that America is ready for the "First Lady" that would stand by Melon's side on Inauguration Day.
Besides, he's buggering off to Canada.

If I were to choose to run, I'd be 36 for the 2016 election. Quite obviously, most of our presidents have been much older than the minimum, so I'd certainly have plenty of time.

In terms of me going to Canada, yes, I will be moving there, mainly because the U.S.' hostile immigration policy prevents same-sex partners from immigrating into the U.S. Period. Even nations like Australia, which has made strong statements against gay marriage for years, has an immigration policy that allows foreign same-sex partners to immigrate. As usual, the U.S. is always backwards to the rest of the Western world when it comes to civil rights.

This does not mean that I will be renouncing my American heritage, nor does it necessarily mean that I will never live in the U.S. ever again. But sometimes you just have to do what you have to do.

I have much that I want to do before I would consider entering politics at any level, and I think that most Americans think very little of career politicians regardless.

let the above be a lesson.

when you discriminate against gays, they take their talents elsewhere. and you'll suffer for it.

hope you can come back sometime soon, with your partner.

there's always a need for editors in DC, and with the Fenty administration, there seems to be talk of even stronger domestic partnership laws

Alright. Take your time.

I'll just have someone wheel me out with an oxygen tank to vote for you.

You should get yourself educated about Socialism and what it really is.
America would be looking much worse if it weren't for the reforms of the 1930's.


I admit, I could do more search on this topic.

But, I still think what I posted about the increasing power of the Federal government is true.

My Grandfather told me about the 1930s. He was on the only voter in his county who did not vote for FDR.

My LIbertarian family tree I guess

Yes

But I remember my grandfather saying that his father made them work six days a week.

It was only only Sunday they did not work.
