Perhaps this column by (yep, it is her name) Cinnamon Stillwell will help some of you understand my point of view and why I am a gay conservative/Republican.
Having been indoctrinated in the postcolonialist, self-loathing school of multiculturalism, I thought America was the root of all evil in the world. Its democratic form of government and capitalist economic system was nothing more than a machine in which citizens were forced to be cogs. I put aside the nagging question of why so many people all over the world risk their lives to come to the United States.
Freedom of speech, religious freedom, women’s rights, gay rights (yes, even without same-sex marriage), social and economic mobility, relative racial harmony and democracy itself were all taken for granted in my narrow, insulated world view. (GP note – Bolded highlights added by me)
So, what happened to change all that? In a nutshell, 9/11.
Read the whole thing….contemplate…. and learn…..
Hopefully some of you will finally realize why President Bush is doing the right thing and why 62 million of us voted for him to protect our entire way of live, not just our “gay way of life.”
Now I’m off to the airport for the long flight to Seattle. I’m off to the Left Coast to continue the battle there for a couple of days. Heh, heh.
