Now before you say, "Whaaaaa? JB18, you crazy!" take a look at this article published by Politico:
In a mostly hidden subtext of the gay marriage debate, a lot of Republicans would be thrilled with the most far-reaching court decision possible. This is the only way, they reckon, to take the issue out of an electoral arena in which it is increasingly bringing them little but grief.
I find it fascinating, and it makes perfect sense. Remove the polarizing element that the party knows is bigotry, and they are now liberated to advocate what is most important to them: More for the few, and less for all. Basically, the GOP can say, "Well, I'm sorry, but those liberal activist judges struck down your precious One Man, One Woman Amendments. But if you elect us, we'll put justices on the bench who vouch for good ol' family values." It's a cop-out that the Republicans only have to gain. Democrats are becoming more popular because Latinos are demanding immigration reform more, and the homosexual agenda is brainwashing the American people to believe in them. If the Supreme Court takes out the homosexual argument, then the Republicans have a win-win situation. Which is likely, considering many of the Conservative Justices are more aligned with the true Republican ideology over social conservatism.
What say you? Does a settled gay debate in the Supreme Court and a bipartisan Immigration Reform bill put the Republican Party back on the map?
