I had the same initial reaction to Stuartcr’s post, but after reading it again, I think it was meant to expose the sad state of mind of many Americans, but certainly not those here on FR. I’m also guessing he hasn’t checked his replies to defend his point. Sorry to both of you if I’m wrong.
You are correct. The only place I ever hear of talk about gay marriage and pot laws, is here. Granted I do not have a large social circle, but the people I know, just aren’t interested in these 2 issues. They will comment on it a little if someone brings it up, but I don’t believe it influences anyone’s vote. I am 62yo, work as a defense contractor and get random drug and polygraph tests.
