Kevin And Don Respond To Being Self Loathing

Looking back at their journey from the Stonewall Democratic Club to Log Cabin Republicans, they claim it was one that was actually started by the democrats. After being told that marriage as not a priority on the agenda in 1995, they became disillusioned with the DEMS. For a decade they felt like they did not belong until they met the republicans of the Log Cabin Republican Club and discovered they too shared a dream of marriage equality. This blog is now a digital time capsule of their time as Republicans and moderated by a friend and supporter.

Join Rudy 2008

"America's Mayor" Former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, a moderate Republican and possible presidential candidate, is working to strengthen his hand in California by scheduling a high-profile appearance and gathering support from California's politically active republicans.
State GOP board members have ben told that Rudy will give keynote address for the state Republican Party convention in February in Sacramento.
Rudy's appearance will catapult what was expected to be a fairly routine GOP gathering into a national event -- and is almost certain to ramp up the increasingly active parade of presidential hopefuls of both parties coming to California to court donors in a state viewed as the wealthiest source of campaign cash.
Rudy already has established a camaraderie with California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger -- a Republican in the same moderate, bipartisan mold who also supports gay rights, abortion rights and stem cell research.
Despite those more liberal positions on social issues, Giuliani is gaining the backing of some California Republicans well known to the state's most conservative grassroots base: financier and former gubernatorial candidate Bill Simon and Republican political consultant and Internet publisher Steve Frank.

While conservatives may have differences with Giuliani on social policies, Frank said, "I have no differences with a guy who, as mayor, cut or eliminated 23 different taxes, and dramatically cut crime in New York. ... Like Ronald Reagan, agree or disagree, he will look you in the eye and say, 'This is where I stand.' There's a trust factor.''
And the trust factor is a major consideration. Isn't it better to vote for someone who you truts even though you disagree with his posiiton rather than someone who reverses his position to gain your support. For instance, if you support domestic partnerships when you commuicate with the Log Cabin Republicans, it is hypocritical to say that you no longer support those rights because you wasnt the support of Christian Conservatives.

You may not agree with Rudy but you can trust him
