Portman is pro-Israel, anti-Russia, and opposes amnesty for illegals. He's just about my dream candidate.

Not conservative enough for my tastes. If he alienates the majority of the GOP base, which is Social conservatives like myself, then he is a nonstarter.

And this is why "social conservatives like yourself" are irrelevant to the country and can but damage the nation. Portman is a moderate, an economics whiz and a leader, but because he won't direct hateful remraks at groups you wish to oppress, you will not support him. Will, most likely, seek to keep him and candidates like him, off the ticket -- not successfully, but enough so they emerge from the primary bloody.

Just in time to lose to Hillary.

Your selfishness, lack of patriotism and small-mindedness are astounding to me, Lex.

Bullshit! Real pro-life, pro traditional marriage Americans are far more patriotic than RINOs like you.

You want to escalate the traditional caste above the rest of the nation in an act of discrimination.
Well whoop-de-fucking do. Life ain't fair pal. And Liberals are all about forcing "fairness and equality" Trouble is, Liberals want everyone to be equal in every way.
