    there are 2 candidates running for president/senate/govenor...whichever you wish to choose as an example.

    candiadte #1 has a manifesto that you agree with 90% of but is a homosexual.

    candiadte #2 has a manifesto that you agree with 80% of and is hetrosexual.

    The question is:

    would you accept the 10% disagreement and vote for candidate #2 because candidate #1 is gay ?

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    No.

    What has his sexuality got to do with anything?



    However, if he is putting himself forward as hetrosexual whilst having Homosexual affairs, then he is opening himself up to Blackmail.

    In that case, i'd rather go with a Candidate that I agree with only 50%, never mind 80%

    I posted this in a different thread to stray away from the nj situation to see if homosexuality was considered a reason for not being eligable for public life. I made no mention of affairs or blackmail.

    I never mentioned NJ either

    I was stating that it depends upon all the circustances.


    Someone that is openly Gay would get my vote in the circumstances you outlined.

    Someone that, for whatever reason, was trying to hide the fact... wouldnt.

    I have no idea why the candidates sexual preferences would be of any significances. Pick the best person for the job I say.

    Though I am interested to understand the phrases

    "but is a homosexual."

    "and is heterosexual."

    The former implies the candidates sexuality is a problem. The latter implies that it is a plus point.

    One wonder whether the poster is aware of their latent homophobia.

    I dont care about what someones sexuality is. Ide rather go with the candidate that I agree with more since I am not superficial enough to care about who the candidate wants to have sex with.

    What if the candidate was openly bi-sexual? Would that please everyone or no-one?

    Rat the question didn't imply any covering up at all. But the fact that you feel that a homosexual needs to state so makes me think that the question raises more than the obvious.
    The question makes no leaning to any moral wrong doing such as was the case in NJ. You said you didn't mention NJ yet you instantly drew reference to the sort of thing that went on there.

    the question is 2 candidates....no other circumstances than those in the question.


    Jpol...go read this thread in wn&e.the reason the question was raised
    The former implies the candidates sexuality is a problem. The latter implies that it is a plus point.
    this is what the question is supposed to determine...that's why i asked it

    Read any of my posts when it come to homsexuals and you will see i don't hold any homophobia at all. and i raised this question to see just if homosexuality is a big issue in public life to people because of recent events.

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    I couldn't care less about who is sharing a bed with an elected official. It's none of my business anyway. And I'm quite certain it's none of anyone else's either, unless they happen to be directly involved.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
