OMG!! Politicians are like a bunch of ****** children!! When are we gonna end this stupid party bullshit and just use our own brains!!!
"Traditional Family Values" is a dog-whistle for right wingers that means; unthinking religiosity, anti-science, male authoritarianism, keeping women barefoot and pregnant, greedy families, hatred of anything different, jingoistic xenophobia, lack of social investment, more greed and more hate, war-mongering, obedience to a police state.<br />
Ya wonder why I would not want anything to do with supporting ugly, hateful, values?
Nope - I detest all religious superstitions equally. We are all atheists; I only believe in one less god than you.
Silly you, and you really think democrats have brains???<br />
Vote those yahoo's out of congress and all that stupid stuff they pull will end and congress might actually get some things done
Im confused with your question and comment.
Having lived and worked in Chicago, Oak Park, Libertyville for 34 years I see that your claim of Chicago as intolerant is pretty damned foolish. Chicago is a great, friendly, world-class, city of neighborhoods. So you think that homophobia is being tolerant? Sell that hate to the reactionary right wingers someplace else.

People (for the most part) will get back to shopping where it's cheaper, no matter what their "values." Look at how many people continue to shop at WalMart, despite the fact that WalMart is the primary reason for the loss of Mom -and- Pop stores and small businesses moving out of downtown areas, thus leaving an economic desert. <br />
(Not to mention issues regarding child labor in China....)
starbucks, Ben and Jerry's, Apple, Microsoft.
