The gender wage gap as presented currently is a myth.As far as women's rights, I mean, I'm a guy, but I have a lot of respect for women. It's ridiculous that womens and mens salaries still arent equal 100% of the time.

Well you know a few days ago, Tea Party Republican Joe Walsh is running against Democratic candidate Tammy Duckworth who is a war veteran that lost both legs in the Iraq War. Well in their debate, Walsh decides to complain an important issue about his opponent which is that... she was picking out a dress for the DNC!
To be honest, disallowing it is against the 1st and 14th amendments, i believe.
And i have never seen a law backing the anti-gay marriage beliefs.
To you and I, that's the case. However, as a whole, the population of America doesn't agree.It makes no sense for it not to.
No but that's how it's always been generally recognised. Does it say it can't be between a man and a dog?Does it say anywhere in our founding laws or in any constitutional amendment that marriages have to be male x female? I never seen it, but I may have to go check my pocket constitution again.
Some people, seriously. There's a case concerning the faith and full credit clause and gay marriage. I hope it makes headway. The conflict is, is that if gays get married somewhere that its legal, and then go somewhere else, should the states honor the marriage?
By law, they HAVE TO. But they aren't. So, it's become a supreme court case that's being held sometime this fall.
I see this remarkably similar to the civil rights movement, and I hope it gets the same results. Not a great leader being shot, of course, but you know what I mean.
Please don't compare the current status of gays to those of non-whites prior to the 60's. It demeans both parties.I see this remarkably similar to the civil rights movement, and I hope it gets the same results. Not a great leader being shot, of course, but you know what I mean.
To get back to the actual election, Survey USA conducted a poll in Tampa Florida to see how minds changed after the VP debate.
13% say they changed which candidate for President they support as a result of the debate. Of those who tell SurveyUSA they changed their mind:
* 44% switched from the Obama ticket to the Romney ticket.
* 29% switched from undecided to the Romney ticket.
* A total of 73% switched to the Romney ticket.
* 18% switched from the Romney ticket to the Obama ticket.
* 6% switched from undecided to the Obama ticket.
* A total of 24% switched to the Obama ticket.
Ryan also edged out Biden by 42/38 in the poll.
The D/R/I break down is 35/37/28, which is on par with the 2010 midterm election. I will say that the 2%+ for Republicans does put it well into the margin of error on debate winner, but it still is what it is. In the meantime, the drastic switch may be a indicator at how poorly Biden's laughing played with people.
I've had a conversation with someone on Skype yesterday. He said Obama was a liar and was only elected because he was part black. It's hard to get out of a political debate, so I just continued on. In the end he blocked me without saying anything. So ya know what this means... http://image.torrent-invites.com/ima...1DT2Z1rqfd.gif
I hate to say it but he is right. If Obama were just another white guy who looks good and can read a teleprompter, he never would have gotten the black vote. Which means Hillary ( First lady of the First "Black" President as Bill Clinton was deemed ) would have received the vast majority of it. That puts Clinton way ahead in the South, and means she pretty much wraps up the nomination before Super Tuesday.Originally Posted by Spite
In the end it would have probably been Edwards vs Clinton, with Edwards staff sabotaging their campaign because of the affair, and Clinton easily running away with it.

But I do think Biden wouldn't be the VP. Obama was a little star struck by him in the debates, I can't see the well oiled Clinton Machine putting all their money on a relatively unknown VP candidate who has a tendency to say some very damming if not racist things ( Indians at 7-11 ).
You know what I don't understand. Why is it that republicans are called the small goverment party when they are always trying to take away liberties. No you can't have an abortion, no birth control pills paid for by insurance, no gay marriage, and no evolution in schools. While democrats allow all these things. They just want higher taxes on corporations, socialized medicine, and strict gun control. It seems to me that the right wing is more controlling.

I am not of the voting age, and i'm not even american, but I would vote for two party members for different reasons.
Barack Obama because:
1) He helped Britain out of a few tight spots
2) Him and David Cameron are pretty tight
Mitt Romney because:
1) I heard his speech, it was pretty compelling
2) David Cameron is a shite PM because he put us in an even crappier recession than we're in than we were come 2010, and if the Romney dude CAN really 'change the world' then maybe he can do us a solid, cos we helped out America a bunch of times too

And I honestly fail to see how that changes anything? A woman VP would be still be big, and Palin would provide the needed spark for the ticket. Granted they could go looking for a Black Republican for the ticket, but Palin's experience as a "Maverick" going after Republicans and Democrats in Alaska was a big draw for McCain.Originally Posted by marioguy
