Log Cabin Republican Blog
Dan Weintraub made mention recently of a the new blog the California Log Cabin Republicans put up. The Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) are a gay republican group. Looks like some interesting issues discussion although not many comments being made on the blog, so far. I've added their site to my blogs list to keep up with what's going on there.
I've never understood why the gays would want to be affiliated with Republicans after they've been slapped in the face so many times by them. It's certainly good to see some in the gay community supporting less government and more individual liberty, as they say on the California LCR website, but I think it would be a stretch to say that's what Republicans stand for now, at least on the national level. I wonder why more of the homo community isn't with the Libertarian Party as I would think most gays would be natural libertarians, believing in live and let live.
Maybe the LCRs just want to be with a "side that has a chance of winning"? Or it could be that the LCR folks are pretty much "conservatives" that believe in the drug war and a few other issues that separate libertarians from conservatives. Probably a little of both. Wonder how many members the LCRs can claim?
