Most are self-loathing. Many brought up in religious homes.
One is a jewish real estate guy in his 50's. Looks incredibly young. Blond hair, blue eyes, looks early 30's but is 52. He is NOT out to his parents. So, the one older guy I've dated ( I'm in my early/mid 30's) was a dud. As soon as I found out he was not out, we broke up but remained friends. Then he STILL supported the GOP with Trump, posting pics at Trump Tower. He is no longer a friend.
I have had a few gay Repugs completely change their minds with Romney and started voting straight Dem tickets. With Trump, they will never go back to the Repugs. They have been woke big time.

I'm a yellow dog democrat. Always have been, always will be. But I know that there are some parts of the conservative agenda that would be good for America. Smaller government, lower taxes the top two. But I also know that the republican party only use these things as coercive tactics to get votes from gullible idiots. They have no interest in really making the government smaller, or lowering taxes for anyone other than themselves and their rich friends.

R21 Why is a smaller government good? In some areas, I agree. In others, no. It wasn't until our Fed govt got large that we started addressing issues like pollution, working conditions, and many other quality of life issues. A strong govt in the right hands(!) is a check on capitalism and corporations.
Why are lower taxes needed? I think our taxes need to go to things that benefit us. Many countries have high taxes but their citizens get great benefits from them. I think that is what is needed here. We need to feel our taxes are really benefiting us more.

Gay Republicans never have and never will transform the Republican Party. The have exchanged their dignity for lower taxes (well, some have).

I still think that the few "Gays For Trump" at his rallies were really simply paid or planted by Putin's underlings.

And people like you who obviously CAN'T READ are the real idiots. Nowhere did I say "small government". I said SMALLER GOVERNMENT. The Federal government (just like all state governments) is rife with waste and overspending, and over staffed with multiple people to do the same job. The Fed. government would probably be reduced by 33% and even run more efficiently than it does now. Get rid of the fat and waste. Kick those out who are paid huge salaries and do little to nothing to earn them. And there are literally thousands of people all over the country working for the Fed. government like that.

I’m a gay conservative and I ran screaming from the left because it went batshit crazy. They defend Islam above all else while Gays are murdered in the Middle East. They advocate for illegal immigration while our working class people (of all colors) continue to struggle and struggle. Democrats USE gays, blacks, Latinos and anyone else they can bring into their “big tent” while advocating for a bigger and bigger welfare state. I thought long and hard before becoming conservative because I fully understand the arguments coming from liberals. But after being a liberal for my entire life and realizing that, fundamentally, their ideas DO NOT WORK and only encourage more and more dependence from the very people they’re claiming to try to help. If you think Dems love gays: take a good hard look at the trans agenda and the Muslim agenda. These are two groups that don’t have gays best interests at heart, yet they are protected and promoted by the left above all others. Fuck that.

R48, if you had half the vitriol for corporate welfare as you do for “governement waste,” I might find you reasonable and well-informed. Instead you sound like a Bush I-era Limbaugh fan, frozen in time.
Tax inequality today is largely the result of tax breaks for businesses and corporations, at the expense of middle-class tax payers. If we made corporations pay their fair share, we could have tax breaks for the middle class and i,proved services for all. But sure, keep focusing on “smaller government” as the country descends into full-blown fascism.

In retrospect (and in light of Trump), both McCain and Romney would have been good presidents.
