Not so fast… The repeal failed… In a state that is OVERWHELMINGLY Republican, the vote was not even close…..  211 to 116 to keep same sex marriage as the law of the land in New Hampshire…

It appears that the backlash against the trashy Rick Santorum,  is making waves in the Republican Party itself… Running away from Social Conservatism and embracing the party’s roots in Libertarianism, the Republican Party of New Hampshire, may have found a method to survive in the modern world……

Eliminate the Social Conservatives….  Get rid of every stupid, stinkin’ thing they stand for….. Quite a few social conservatives checked themselves into the local hospital emergency room, as the whopping defeat made itself known…..

What is probably the most fascinating aspect of this absolutely ridiculing and embarrassing defeat of social conservatism, is that the force to defeat it….. came from conservatism itself…..  This was not a win by liberals… This was a win by conservatives for every American’s right to live free from the scorn that Social Conservatives heap on everyone who doesn’t share their cultish view.

As Tea Party Republican Tammy Simmons correctly noted:  “I always say that my liberty ends, where your liberty begins.  …And if you’re a gay man wanting to marry another gay man, how does that impact me personally? You know,.. it doesn’t …”

“It’s not about whether I’m Catholic or whether or not the party platform says this or whether or not the Democrats were the ones who brought it in the first place. All of that’s really irrelevant.”   

Social Conservatives are irrelevant.

 “It’s great to have faith and it’s great to have religion, but that should dictate your life, not how somebody else lives their life.”

“The people that are supporting repeal want their personal religious views to be the law of the land. I hate to say it, but that’s really what it’s coming down to,”–  Tammy Simmons

Our founding fathers gave up everything,  fought,  and died to prevent that… Damned if we’re going to let these nuts tear up the Constitution… and take us back to the very Dark Ages of Enlightenment……

“We’ve got so many Republican state representatives that are opposed to this repeal effort. And it’s like the Republican Party’s getting back to its roots—values of individual freedom and liberty and equality. It’s been an exciting thing to see. I think that New Hampshire is going to be a model for the national Republican Party to see that it is okay for the Republicans to be inclusive of gays and lesbians and to be in favor of equal rights. It’s a new step forward for the party.”  Tyler Deaton

Finally, a Republican Party that is getting back to it’s roots… values of individual freedom and liberty and equality.

Currently, if you valued freedom at all, the only place you could find it, was when you had a government consisting of all Democrats,  and no  Republicans…….
