Abortion and gay marriage are being talked about too much. It's what the people at the top want.

Meanwhile the economy crumbles, the border and immigration continues to be a HUGE problem, endless wars, and millions out of work.

Leave the social issues to the states!

The federal government and the elections is like watching "professional" wrestling. It's all an act.

And as long as the majority of the electorate is naive enough that more government intervention, at any level, can "solve problems", they deserve the misery they vote upon themselves.

If you leave issues like that to the state level you would have Muslims in jail, gays not being able to buy houses, and women dying from birth complications after being raped. All three already occur, what do you think would happen if the states had total power over them?

Take your paycheck from "2nd trick" and go see Western Europe where they have much more government intervention. Then come and tell us how "miserable" they have it....lOL

The Republicons use the usual 'God Gays and Guns' tactic in every election. At this point it's very old and tired though. Still they want to get as many of their haters out to vote as they can.
