Why Republicans Should Consider Changing Their Stance On Gay Marriage…

Supporters of gay marriage were a big factor in the recent election. Some would say that supporters of gay marriage determined the outcome of the election. What can we learn?

The Republican party has taken a more socially conservative platform in recent years than has traditionally been the case.  Some might be old enough to remember Barry Goldwater’s indifference to whether or not gays be allowed to marry.  Ayn Rand seemed to favor getting the government out of people’s personal lives.  This change in party direction may be due to the larger role that groups such as “Focus on the Family” have played in helping to vet and approve our party’s candidates.  Religeous leaders of all types seem to have staked a claim to power in the Republican party over the past few decades.  Perhaps some have felt that this is the appropriate course for the party to take, in order to balance out some of the socially liberal positions the Democrat party has taken.  In any event, it is becoming a problem for us as a party.

Will Smith Would Make a Great Addition To The Republican Party!

I don’t know much about WIll Smith’s political affiliation, but from what I’ve seen of him on YouTube and in interviews over the years, the man is a self-starter who pulled himself up by the boot straps and believes very much that hard work is the key to success in America.  If he’s not already, he would definitely be a great addition to the Republican party. 

Watch below as Will Smith recoils in horror at the thought of paying the new 75% millionaire tax in France:
