    The names on that list may be Republicans but they are not conservatives. This is the wing of the party known as RINOS: Republicans in name only. Conservatives want nothing to do with them and are actively working to render them irrelevant.

    I'm on record more than once on here as saying that the republicans should offer up DOMA on a silver platter in exchange for a balanced budget. What do ya say liberals? It's the best of both issues. Civil Rights are expanded and we put our country back on sound financial footing.

    It would make sense except liberals aren't against a balanced budget in the first place. They just have different ideas than you about how to bring that about.

    @Zazziness-- How do you figure? The dems are saying that cuts amounting to less than what our Federal Government borrows in a month (sequester) will mean the end of civilization as we know it.

    @Bobolinsky Two ways to balance a budget and both need to be addressed: cuts where they absolutely have to happen and a raise in income.

    we already have "marriage equality" Marriage is between One Man and One Woman
    I personally will never support so called "Same-Sex Marriage" simply because there truly is no reason for it.

    that's like saying we had marriage equality because everyone could marry a member of their race. A man can't marry a man, but a woman can. That's not equal. You won't support gay marriage because you are a homophobe.

    Hopefully. The Republican Party needs to get rid of this insidious notion that we can continue to pose staunch opposition to causes such as gay marriage, immigration reform, and abortion and still garner enough votes to win elections. Homosexual's are people too, and the ones that are here are US citizens. They too have the rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. If getting married makes them happy than so be it, they should be allowed to be married by whatever church allows them to be, and the state should sanction it just as they do with normal marriages.

    I don't think the Republican Party will change until the are completely destroyed and allowed to rebuild. They simply can not divorce themselves from the religious right and being anti-gay while not popular is profitable in terms of big bigoted doners.

    If it has Obama's name on it or if he brought it to the table it will not pass. But if a republican pushes it it may have traction since they are trying to get voters, any voters to vote for their 1800's ideology.

    Let them be. Homosexuality is a non issue in comparison to the other problems we have with our country. All I want is for the homosexuals to accept differing standpoints to their lifestyle, which hasn't come yet. I understand they want to change minds, but that's a lost cause and will do nothing more than raise blood pressure. Let them have their right to love whomever, all I ask is they respect those that disagree with them. You can disagree with someone without being disrespectful, yet it seems the militants on the homosexual side think it's down right bigotry, hate, Nazism, fascism, (enter about 10 other recycled words here).

    Walk a mile in their shoes. How would you react if you were told your sexual orientation was a choice when you knew, first-hand, that it is not? How would you react if someone told you "You're an abomination" because of something like being left-handed -- something that you were born with? How would you react if people encouraged you to "get back in the closet" and never speak about who you love and asked you to never, ever display affection toward your loved one where people might see? How would you like to read a news story about a couple who was beaten or murdered for no reason but that they were the same type person you are?

    It's hard to believe all the muck homosexuals get thrown at them on a daily basis. No wonder some are what you might see as "disrespectful" when they hear an insulting cliché for the fortieth time that month.

    You have the right to disagree with them, it becomes disrespectful when you justify denying them rights due to that disagreement.

    You don't deserve respect. Do you think the KKK deserves the respect of Jews and blacks, and that the KKK just "disagrees" with them?

    i doubt seriously that you will ever find even one gay or lesbian person who doesn't 'accept' heterosexuality as the way that people are born and yet, here you are saying that you have the right to accept homosexuality or not.

    i think that this is the problem. to think that it's up to you to 'accept' it is nothing more than arrogance.

    Maybe.
    But the G.O.P. is one big unhappy, dysfunctional family.
    When putting up a front, they must all smile and wave. But anyone who deviates from the party line gets a good beating when they get home.

    Honestly how is that description any different from the Democratic Party? I didn't say you were wrong.and I'm using a debate tactic I hate. But I have to ask what happens to a Dem that gets out of line? About the same thing I would say.

    @NTBFW
    I don't think so. Look at how Christie has been demonized for simply thanking President Obama for his help with disaster relief. Or how Huntsman is called a RINO for being an Obama administration Ambassador and for stating, "my country before my party."
    Why do you think that all these Republicans waited until retirement to speak out. The Dems certainly have their in house bickering,but it's the G.O.P. who eats it's young.

    Well it only fair that they too can experience the financial and emotional devastation of a divorce, I mean that in a jokingly way. Mentioned before in another article that I'm glad they are making some effort to be in touch with the community more. Its a start

    This is just the slippery slope of a nation going down to the dust bin of greatness. The GOP either goes along with a completely spoiled electorate or they will not get elected. The Democrats have put America on the path to total irresponsible bankruptcy. The majority of voters no longer pay taxes and only elect those who give them free subsidies. I believe our nation for sure will go bankrupt and we will see rioting in the streets. We have a president who is bent on pandering to the irresponsible welfare voting block.

    i hope we have an SC with the ability to think all on thier own. The executive branch and the legislative branch should be ashamed for trying ot soap box this issue at the last min for political gain.

    Again...Its like I've been saying over & over again...that sooner or later the "grown-ups" in the Republican party would slowly start to reclaim their party back from the far right extremist like the tea party...We are seeing more and more of this, starting with Carl Rove being told by a Republican Gov. to "Butt-Out"...So--exp ect to see more as more & more rational elements of that party get tired of losing elections and having to endure extreme political positions that America has already rejected!

    Juts another thing to try to sell to the American people that the GOP is changing. My question is, how will the GOP survive with one less divisive and pointless wedge issue to serve up at election time?

    I don't see the Teapartistas in the House or, more importantly perhaps, in the donor base signing onto marriage equality anytime soon.

    @Hireman A shame there isn't a DNA test for libertarians. The way it is now it's impossible to distinguish between a libertarian and a christo-fascist like Tony Perkins.

    @DARSB it's only impossible if your only criteria is what someone looks like. He's quite right wing which is a stark contrast to libertarians on social as well as economics.
