My take on the gay marriage issue

I'm opposed to gay marriage as well.

The underlying problem is the very rapid societial collapse in normal sexual identity the result of an out of control divorce rate and low marriage formations. Both are in part related to the deterioration in the ability of young couples to live an afordable middle class life style. There are a number of factors involved but the most important are (1) federal family policy promoting divorce and family discord (2) non conforming mortgages promoting the housing bubble and (3) illegal aliens destroying the blue collar wage structure and consuming the affordable rental stock.

Marriage for men is particularly problematic. Nowadays it's little more than a hostage taking given the risk of divorce accompanied by the loss of day to day contact with the children, crushing child support, community property, and the risk of being jailed without due process protections from false domestic violence allegations. Women often such allegations to get control of the family home and leverage in the divorce courts.

Children need both parents in the home to sort out the very complex psychodynamic developmental issues underlying the formation of a normal sexual identity.
The social conservative movement is on its last legs simply because of it's comprised of mostly later middle aged people and seniors. That's why the GOP and Bush administration doesn't take the movement seriously. 2008 will be last time conservatives will have any political relevance. Don't waste this last chance by getting bogged down in theory and rhetoric. Time is simply not on the conservatives' side.

That's why I'm trying for the White House late in life. Doing it solely for my children's and grandchildren's generations. Unless there's a grownup in the White House in 2008, you can kiss the traditional American family goodbye.

Attended the Texas GOP convention in San Antonio last week where I spoke with dozens of young and middle aged activists. They are very unhappy with the GOP. Without exception got a positive reponse to my plans to restore affordable middle class family life and reform federal family policy. They will VOTE for someone with a concrete plan to give them a realistic chance for a stable middle class family life. My guess is absent such a candidate they'll stay home on election day in 2008.

Anticipate I'll hear the same thing at the Iowa GOP meeting next week in Des Moines.
