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.

As a historian, I know Ronald Reagan and Mitt Romney Is No Ronald Reagan.

Kevin Norte
A look back on where we have been with Ronald Reagan. Sometimes I feel that people want to forget this important time in our history. Don and I cannto support Mitt Romney. I understand that others can but the marriage struggle has defined us, The Nortes, and the back room deals we, in California did, to move the governor on this issue, is remarkable. Don and I respect our marriage and Mitt Romeny does not respect our marriage. We long for true republicans that have been our friends. We are tired of the polotic rehetoric. We believe Prop 8 will go to the full Supreme Court. The 9th Circuit limited the precedent upon which it was based to state it applied where rights WERE granted. The precedent, Romer, in reading it, applies to prospective laws too. This lends support to our belief that all state constitutional amendments are illegal under Romer.
We will have full marriage equality by our (Kevin and Don)'s fifth anniversary.
With that in mind, I recall Ronald Reagan, a true american hero. His role in our fight is diminished by what happened during AIDS but that occurred after. Perhaps without Reagan, Briggs would have been the law in Califorina.
I have to look back to remember what we are about. We are not about Romney because he hurts families like those who got married during the Prop 8 window, a window LCR helped cause behind the scenes.
