Gays as abused spouses

Bravo to the Libertarian Party in making a firm statement today that both major parties treat gays like battered spouses.

Like abused spouses who keep returning to their aggressors, gay voters keep handing their votes to the Democrats who abuse them.

The Libertarian Party (LP) wants to break this self-destructive behavior and offers LGBT voters a better alternative.

"President Obama and the Democrats had almost a year of complete control of the federal government: the Presidency, the House, and a filibuster-proof 60 votes in the Senate. They could have repealed 'don't ask don't tell.' They could have gotten rid of the Defense of Marriage Act. But they didn't do either of those things. That's a complete and total betrayal of all the promises they made to gay and lesbian voters for years.
"After a carefully orchestrated failure in the Senate, the Democrats are now blaming Republicans for blocking the repeal of 'don't ask don't tell.' Of course, three Democrats just voted against it too, including Majority Leader Harry Reid. Reid claims he voted for procedural reasons, but the whole situation seems calculated to look like they're trying to help, while making sure they don't actually help."

Unlike the Democratic and Republican Parties, the Libertarian Party believes that gays and lesbians deserve equal treatment under the law.


  1. Who leads and or speaks for the Libertarian party?
    Are there any viable candidates running?

  2. Nobody has emerged on the national front yet, except for Bob Barr still speaking for the LP.

    Which goes back to my position that the LP should concentrate solely on local races for the time being.

  3. I agree.
    I think the tea party is trying to show themselves as libertarians.
    Many libertarians have filtered into the tea party.
    They will be in for a big surprise.
    The baggers are having their own civil war.
    This should get interesting.
    Two camps. Palin vs. Ron Paul.
