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.

Gay Plot To take Over GOP REVEALED!!!
The following is from the California Catholic Daily of February 17, 2007 and is solely used and intended for its newsworthyness:
Increased presence and influence of homosexuals at Republican Party's
Spring Convention highlights plan to gain clout on party's
The increasing number of open homosexual activists was notable at the
California Republican Party 2007 Spring Convention, held Feb. 9 to 11
Sacramento, and their willingness to answer the party's call for
in no-win districts is one way they plan to rise to positions of
within the party.
The Log Cabin Republicans are the primary backers of homosexual
within the Republican Party, both nationally and in California. In
California, the group has a statewide umbrella organization and
eight major cities of the state.
At the recent state Republican convention, Log Cabin Republicans
Saturday evening "Luau" hospitality party in the Hyatt Regency Ventura
decorated with a Hawaiian motif. The "Luau" party was well attended
being promoted by Log Cabin Club members in Hawaiian shirts circulating
throughout the convention center and hotel to personally offer
conventioneers plastic Hawaiian "Lei" necklaces and color flyers with
slogan "Liberty for All!" The word "Liberty" was crossed off and
printed over it.
Because of California's extremely gerrymandered electoral districts,
minority Republican Party finds it difficult to recruit candidates in
the 80 Assembly districts, 25 of the 40 State Senate districts, and 33
the 53 Congressional districts, where it is practically impossible for
Republican candidate to win.
The gerrymandering is so effective that, during the 2004 elections, not
seat changed hands from one party to the other in California's 153
legislative and congressional electoral districts. In November 2006,
one of the 153 seats changed from one party to the other -- and that
when pro-life, conservative U.S. Rep. Richard Pombo, a Republican, lost
seat in the 11th Congressional District (Stockton).
The Republican Party tries to recruit a candidate to run in every
but as an article in the Feb. 17, 2004 issue of the San Francisco
pointed out, it is homosexuals who have disproportionately answered the
party's call in the "no-win" districts.
Why? Because, even though they may not win the general election,
who win these often uncontested primaries are guaranteed one or more
votes, and influence on the California Republican Party Central
which picks leaders and makes rules and policy for the state party.
An example of this phenomenon was on display at the recent convention.
Charel Winston and her "spouse," Alma M. Tricke-Winston, were
dressed as cowgirls at the convention. Charel Winston won an
June 6, 2006 Republican primary for San Jose's 16th Congressional
held since 1994 by liberal Democrat Zoe Lofgren. Winston had run
unsuccessfully for city council in El Dorado Hills in 2005.
Winston favors homosexual marriage, legalized abortion and the use of
embryos for stem cell research. Her campaign motor home was parked in
of the convention hotel, and on Saturday evening, Winston posed for
wearing a large cowboy hat and red boots outside the Log Cabin Club
party, while her "spouse," Alma, wore spurs on her cowboy boots.
"Gay rights ultimately will be won through the Republican Party because
only way we're going to win is when middle America gets it, and middle
America is Republican,"
Jeffrey Bissiri, state chairman of the Log Cabin Club and coordinator
candidate recruitment drive, told the Chronicle.
