    Okay full transparency here. When the government claims "transparency" they are hiding something. When I claim it, you are getting the straight scoop (or so to speak).

    I know that there are some liberals/progressives who are infuriated by gay conservatives. I don't think that's a big secret. Transparency alert. I AM A MEMBER OF A CONSERVATIVE WEBSITE. But I don't agree with a lot of it. We recently had a new member who is openly gay. And I must say, the lack of hate and disrespect shown toward him is stunning. Of course you have your occaisional dinosaur with a rude remark but typically, there are no hostile remarks.

    The good news? Conservatives are not hating or judging people in large numbers. They are welcoming gays into their forums. So libs maybe your anti hate message is getting through and gays are finally feeling comfortable among the cons. Of course we have a way to go. But this is a good start. There are a few things that the "D's" and "R's" can work together to solve. But we can't do it while we are insulting each other.

    BTW I consider myself to be a moderate, which means I can call some plays for both teams.

    Don't get too happy. I will join the site if you give the address. I would join for the same reason I listen to rightwing radio. It is the simplest intellegence gathering since Enigma was decyphered.

    How can I not be happy when progress is being made? You should be encouraged as well. You don't need to gather intellegence. I think if you ask a conservative his views he will gladly give them to you. Not much sneaky stuff going on. Pretty straight forward. Google ACOC and I think you might find it. As a lib, be respectful when you are in somebody else's house. But above all. Have fun!

    And when will this new koombaya feeling be expressed in the Republican platform? Before or after pigs fly?

    Altair,
    I hope that you are right and I hope the conservatives are not all haters. However, you must look at the fact that they are very unhappy that they have lost two presidential elections in a row. They are re-evaluating what went wrong. They bet on the wrong horse. White males. Now they realize that they must appeal to Women, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Gays, the poor, and any other group that I may have forgotten. Problem is that they have a negative past in relation to those groups. Yet if they want to win next time.... they are going to have to open the doors and invite in more than just white males.
