Bad Dan Savage! You made me watch that video and cry!
I was thinking about the issue of gay people who vote Republican and wondering why they would vote against their own self-interest when I realized that they vote Republican for the same reason that most people who vote Republican do. They think they'll get to keep more of their money because bad people they don't know won't get it, and *nothing else will change.* The roads will be there, the cops and fire department will be there, an educated populace will still be there because none of those things take tax dollars. And they'll never need special services beyond what they can afford, anyway, because they're the "right kind of people." Not a lot of rational thinking there.
