Warning about extending your anger with federal politics to state politics

It is difficult for me to believe that the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and intersex community in Kentucky is so cynical that they would vote against their own interests as published in the following stories:

Yes, we have the Log Cabin Republicans fighting for LGBTI rights within the Republican Party, and I am proud to have them, just as we have the Stonewall Democrats fighting for LGBTI rights within the Democratic Party.  However, the Log Cabin Republicans have had limited success in curtailing conservative social agendas, and now we have the anti-gay Tea Party to contend with.

If the Commonwealth of Kentucky had all the political money that it's political candidates have wasted in this election with mudslinging, Kentucky would be out of debt.  Perhaps we need a law that limits campaign spending and contributions?

Jordan Palmer's (my) argument with candidate John T. Kemper who said "Spirit Day," was a "Meaningless Gesture."

I got into a huge argument with Kentucky Republican Auditor of Public Accounts candidate John T. Kemper III.  Kemper stated the "Wear Purple Day," or "Spirit Day," was a "meaningless gesture," and also stated: "For me Homosexuality is a sin, the same as another sin, adultery, murder, cheating, stealing etc."

You can read more about it on Kentucky Equality Federation's Blog, as well as the popular Hillbilly Report.
