Interesting to see how those attitudes pan out when times get tougher. Hmmmm...

Rush Limbaugh had an interesting dialog the other day going in regards to an article that said the new feminism was staying home to raise your children. For 40 years liberals have tried to change nature, turn men into sissyboys subservient to women, women into dominating, muscular men, gay relationships into being normal, male/female marriage into being abnormal, children and unborn children as being a scourge on the earth that holds women back, etc.

And yet nature always reasserts itself. Two hotdogs and two buns don't make children that continue the species.

To me what I see with most gay people I come across is that it's a fad and a way to obtain attention, as coming out and declaring yourself gay gets all sort of sympathy and a pass on any bad behavior you might engage in as we have to all be understanding of your "struggle". This attempt to hijack marriage is just part of the big drama.

I think in 20 years people will all look back on this and laugh.
I'm laughing at your post right now!

So we're starting to experience a conservative backlash. I wouldn't want to miss that. Besides, the left is targeting Texas in exactly the same way that they've been targeting Colorado. Colorado has the opportunity to show the way for Texas, Arizona, and the rest of the country what it means to take back your government when it is hijacked by gerrymandering, well-monied liberals.
These are pretty bold statements given your track record on political predictions. I remember how convinced you were that Romney would get elected in 2012 and that Colorado would NEVER legalize marijuana. It seems that you're deeply in denial that Colorado's politics have moved to the left. Regarding civil unions, what type of people are you spending time with that disagree with civil unions? Most of my conservative friends even agree that gay people should have equal standing under the law (which this bill still doesn't provide, as gay people still aren't allowed to marry).

It's also pretty funny to me how you assume that anyone who has liberal leanings, especially in a social aspect, are 'city dwellers'. I, for one, haven't lived in a large city for more than a few months in the last 18 years. I identify more with rural folks in many regards. I've worked with loggers and ranchers for years. I am also a woman. I find your comment about liberals turning men into "sissyboys" and women into "dominating, muscular men" to be outrageously wrong and ignorant. Thankfully, most real men I know don't think this way.

In regards to gay marriage being a fad, you are way off the mark. Obviously you don't really know any gay people outside of Hollywood (well, actually, you might and just not realize it because they don't fit the mold you've defined for them). Gay people are not trying to hijack marriage. That's a ridiculous assertion! If anything, your good ole' buddy boy Rush Limbaugh is the one ruining marriage. His track record is pitiful!

I think in 20 years people will look back and laugh at thinking like yours.

Colorado is a lot bigger than Boulder. For what it's worth, the Front Range is a lot bigger than Boulder.
No, you shouldn't get to vote on everything. That's more in the direction of how California operates, and we all know how well that is working.

This is a representative form of government. That's how you vote.

This is true and the 14th admendmant of the constitution says the majority can not take away rights from the minority.

The 14th amendment is also a contemporary excuse for every pregnant foreigner on earth who wants to create an instant anchor baby. Even the Chinese have caught on now, and we all know what that means.

As far as marriage goes, it's a civil contract, so the gubmen has no business saying which individuals can make up the parties in question as long as they are not deemed incompetent.
