In a recent, RAD-ripping post, Jerid at BSB says:? “the Republican party is built on a homophobic message that is largely based off hate and fear.”? This time, Jerid, I’ll have to disagree.?? Fear and Hatred of same-sex couples DOES get the wing-nut base motivated and energized, but you can’t build a whole party on excitement alone.No, the GOP has a really big tent- and homophobia is just one of many, many stakes holding it in the ground.? A party this big needs lots of things (i.e. people) to fear and hate- and there certainly is no shortage.But with so many options out there for Republican politicians, how can?you be sure your politicians hate the same people?you do?That’s why I started this guide….
