I checked the GOP platform and it looks okay. Still voting third party for president, but will vote Republican for congress.
"Preserving Traditional Marriage
"Because our childrens future is best preserved within the traditional understanding of marriage, we call for a constitutional amendment that fully protects marriage as a union of a man and a woman, so that judges cannot make other arrangements equivalent to it. In the absence of a national amendment, we support the right of the people of the various states to affirm traditional marriage through state initiatives.
"Republicans recognize the importance of having in the home a father and a mother who are married. The two-parent family still provides the best environment of stability, discipline, responsibility, and character. Children in homes without fathers are more likely to commit a crime, drop out of school, become violent, become teen parents, use illegal drugs, become mired in poverty, or have emotional or behavioral problems. We support the courageous efforts of single-parent families to provide a stable home for their children. Children are our nations most precious resource. We also salute and support the efforts of foster and adoptive families.
"Republicans have been at the forefront of protecting traditional marriage laws, both in the states and in Congress. A Republican Congress enacted the Defense of Marriage Act, affirming the right of states not to recognize same-sex marriages licensed in other states. Unbelievably, the Democratic Party has now pledged to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, which would subject every state to the redefinition of marriage by a judge without ever allowing the people to vote on the matter. We also urge Congress to use its Article III, Section 2 power to prevent activist federal judges from imposing upon the rest of the nation the judicial activism in Massachusetts and California. We also encourage states to review their marriage and divorce laws in order to strengthen marriage.
"As the family is our basic unit of society, we oppose initiatives to erode parental rights.
So by voting third party, you are for same sex marriage? Foolish. Please rethink!
>Still voting third party for president, but will vote Republican for congress.
Obama loves voters that throw away their chance to vote him out by voting for people/parties that are meaningless except to the ego...
Its okay. I will do what is best for America - you do what you believe is best for you.
I checked the GOP platform and it looks okay.
Then they have to change it if they are to be honest. When they selected Romney as their 'chosen' candidate - he represents what their platform is.
So either Romney has to step down as the imposter than he is or the GOP needs to add to their platform socialistic health and same sex marriage - otherwise they are misrepresenting themself.
Would you be a Republican if they were for same sex marriage, pro abortion, socialistic healthcare, gun grabbing YET they expect you to vote for it. - they didn't support THEIR OWN KIND, one who stood on their platform!
