A Political Storm Is Brewing Across The Country And People Need To Wake Up And Smell The Coffee
FORT LAUDERDALE ( Opinion) Oct. 4 —The LBGTQ+ communities have come a long way and have met many of our goals that were established for ourselves; marriage equality, better job opportunities, better acceptance in society to mention a few, but.
There is a big ‘but’; there are many more things to accomplish and we as a community must continue our fight to hold on the rights we have earned.
There’s no way to sugar-coat this: I’m mad as hell — and I know you are, too.” Gregory T. Angelo, president of Log Cabin Republicans said. “The Republican Party has passed the most anti-LGBT Platform in the Party’s 162-year history. Opposition to marriage equality, nonsense about bathrooms, and an endorsement of the debunked psychological practice of “pray the gay away.”
“This isn’t my GOP, and I know it’s not yours either. Heck, it’s not even Donald Trump’s! When given a chance to follow the lead of our presumptive presidential nominee and reach out to the LGBT community in the wake of the awful terrorist massacre in Orlando on the gay nightclub Pulse, the Platform Committee said NO.”
It seems it gets worse. In their first term of office our next president will likely nominate three Supreme Court Justices. If we ignore our civic duty of voting for a Progressive candidate, like Senator Hillary Clinton, who truly supports the LBGTQ+ community, our government could easily reverse all the gains we have achieved.
I believe electing Senator Clinton and securing a majority of Democratic Senators will assure our country of a Supreme Court that will continue to recognize our community.
Senator Clinton has her assumed issues, but it comes down to her or Donald Trump.
Boys and girls Wake up and Smell the Coffee; it is critical that you and your peers register and vote in the upcoming presidential and congressional elections. Vote for the individuals and party that has and will continue to support you.
