Obama's stance on marriage equality: leave it to the states
Romney's stance on marriage equality: supports constitutional ban
Johnson's stance on marriage equality: believes it is a civil right for everyone

Just curious.

It has meaning only for one issue voters who don't care whether their candidate wins or loses. Most gays are interested in more than equal marriage rights.

Because those populating the gay marriage crowd are primarily leftists, before anything else.

They're not interested in liberty and free enterprise, but the goodies that they can get dealt to them from gubmint and other third parties.

Oh...well thank you captain obvious. Which of Gary Johnson's other policies would these individuals disagree with and why?

Johnson is a wasted vote and everyone but the tin foil hats know it.

The wasted vote is the one cast on the pretense that the insider establisment authoritarian douchebag with the (R) next to his name, is any better a deal than the insider establishment authoritarian douchebag with the (D).

They would rather support a party with some actual power to change things in their favor rather than a doomed third party stunt candidate who has far too many haters as supporters, hope I cleared that up for you.

Clear up? No...because you use faulty pretense again.

Actually, he (inadvertently) cleared up his position quite well with "...support a party with some actual power to change things in their favor..."

Bitter little leftist children like him are all for favoring certain political identity groups, at the expense of those not in that group.

No, a wasted vote is one cast for someone who has no hope of scoring even a single electoral vote. The term "wasted" can also be attributed to ignorant people who's knowledge of issues is limited to words like "douchebag".

You are a fool. If a voter disagrees with everything the two mainstream candidates agree on, how is it wasted?

Waawaaawaaa.

I know the issues...And on all the ones that are important to me, both the insider establishment authoritarian douchebags running on their respective big party duopoly tickets fail the sniff test.

You want to play sucker for those two mutts, that's your business...But nobody else has the obligation to play along.

as well they should be... they want to win elections and don't think they'd be best represented by people who don't think they are entitled to equal rights and use them as a wedge issue.

... notwithstanding the log cabin republicans who fantasize that they can change the GOP.

Pffft...If you were really interested in equal treatment, you be in favor of getting rid of the special dispensations given to favored groups, rather than trying to get your wedge group in on the goodies.

But you're not...You're most interested by pitting those groups against everyone else for political gain.

Because the LGBT believe they need rights and the Libertarians are saying already have rights!

A bit of miscommunication here--the ACLU would do well to moderate between the two camps.

And the LGBT refuses to recognize that they in fact have those rights, in favor of going begging to politicians and bureaucrats for privileges....And acting as though all that is righteous and good in America comes from Big Daddy Big Gubmint, is a guiding attitude of the American left.

Turns out that the libertarian message of self reliance and proactively claiming and asserting ones rights doesn't play well, to people who view themselves on the effect end of their lives and expect their rights to be delivered to their doorstep.

Gee, a bunch of bible-waving bigots bash homos and come after them with torches and you are suprised the gays ran to the left?


The right is making the same mistake with immigrants, and losing a huge demographic that otherwise would be natural born Republicans.
