Republican fundraisers say the changing views of gay marriage in their party could unlock big money from GOP donors in places like New York, California and Florida â€” where some Republicans have kept their checkbooks closed over what they saw as misplaced priorities, at best, or intolerance, at worst, at the highest ranks of the party.
Several Republicans pointed to Sen. Rob Portmanâ€™s switch in support of gay marriage as a watershed moment for the party. And more than two dozen high-profile Republicans asked the Supreme Court to back gay rights. And even Foster Friess, Rick Santorumâ€™s top benefactor, has softened his stance on domestic partnership....
We're better off shunning the dens and republicans . I think there needs to be a third party. One that stands up for Jesus , morality, family values, the economy and truly cares for we the people. Not one political party seems to have our best interest , although I tip my hat to Paul, Rubio, lee,Cruz, king, and I'm sure that there's a few more who are standing up to this tyrannical govt who should have been impeached and jailed for their treason.
Well, if the Republicans "bow to pressure" and start openly supporting the gay agenda, then I guess I'll have to vote for a third party or abstain.
On "bowing to pressure" there may be a vocal minority within the Republican Party that really does pressure the party to consider supporting the gay agenda, but I think most conservatives will be against it. The higher ups are misjudging their primary base of voters.
If they are in "say anything to get elected" mode, I think that they are in for a shock. If anything they will do even worse with the conservative Christian voters than they did last election. The issue with Romney and whether or not to vote for him had nothing to do with him being too conservative and everything to do with him being a Mormon. There weren't enough Christians willing to give the Mormon a chance and most stayed home.
If the Republican party becomes Democrat Lite then they will lose even more conservative Christian voters, and you can bet that the liberal Democrats won't be switching sides. Why would they want a watered down version of their own party?
I have said for years that politicians will do what is necessary to get re-elected. It seems as if they look at their main job is to stay in office. No real change here.
The problem is that people used to vote for the things that we here on SA usually aggree with. The majority of people no longer vote to our beliefs. The morals of this country have been in decline since the 1960's. So the politicans that support what we believe in, will no longer be able to get elected or stay in office.
Our hope is not in the repbulicans or the democrats. Our hope is in the Lord! No vote can expand the Kingdom of God and no vote can delay His return one second.

In the past I considered Democrats to be the Saducees of politics and the Republicans to be the Pharisees for at least the Republicans "said" the right things. It would seem both parties are akin to the Saducees for now the Republicans neither say nor do the right things.
You really can't get into high office today without telling anyone and everyone what they want to hear. That's why we have a gay union approving, pro-choice affirming, tolerant Muslim loving "Christian" president. Agree with everyone and watch the money pot overflow.
ya really think a generation that would bipartisannly create perpeutual wores on "a bad feeling", create trillions in debt for the private reserve which leads to levels of debt where we owe China 100 million a day just in interest!?, creates a new police state beuarocracy including trl without lawyer and stripping of handicapped and locking up of breastfeeding mothers into glass cages at the airport terminal, is going to have the moral ground to stop this next wave of replacing nation, society and family with a global system/market? of course not!
