For the most part, yes.
I am pro-choice, while the majority of Republicans want to eliminate choice.
I am for gay marriage and civil unions, while the majority of Republicans seek to discriminate against homosexuals by making a constitution admendment to make such unions illegal.
I am for a secular state, strengthening the separation of church and state for that is the only way to create a government and laws that are fair to all who is governed, while the majority of Republicans wants to make the US even more so a Christian only country. Last thing I want to do is live in a Christian version of Iran.
I am against wasting our resources on pointless wars, which this adminstration and most Republicans seem to enjoy.
I am for direct communication and action against countries who are proven to be threats to our sovereign state, such as North Korea, while it seems that the current administration refuses to have any direct talks with that nation which seems most of the Republicans back the president on.
I am for unrestricted stem cell research for the medical benefits will indeed help millions, but of course the majority of Republicans think that is "evil."
I don't see this as bigotry, Dark Moth, but a decision I have made because the Republican party, as a whole, cannot represent me in any form any more. I want the Republicans out of office, every office. From local government to the highest levels in the federal government, I do not want to see a single Republican. The way that is going to happen is if those who are fed up with the current ways things are running is to give full support to the Democrats until a viable 3rd party can step in and take the place of the Republicans while the Republicans go the way of the dodo.
It is time for forward thinking. It is time for social and scientific advancement. That is not going to happen with the Republicans in charge.
[rant]Also I think it is funny that Dark Moth thinks that I am a bigot, while Christianity has 2000 year history of putting to the sword or burning those who did not convert to their religion or submit to their standards of "good" living. We won't go into the genocides they have purposely caused over the centuries nor the current movements to sow hatred and treat certain minorities as second class citizens. Yes, I do have a particular hate for Christianity, Dark Moth. It is well earned.[/rant]
Dammit, Dark Moth, I am not suppose to do that! Grrr...
