Skip to comments.US election: America goes liberal with gay marriage, abortion and cannabis votes
Posted on 11/07/2012 1:58:01 AM PST by Cronos
The generally liberal moves were decided among more than 170 ballot initiatives and referendums held across the country, as it re-elected Democratic President Barack Obama for four more years.
...During his first four-year term Mr Obama had also fulfilled a pledge to repeal the controversial Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT) law banning openly gay servicemen and women from serving in the US military.
Three states voted Tuesday to legalize same-sex marriage, including Maine - which voted in a referendum against it in 2009, but reversed that decision with 54 percent in favor to 46 percent against
.. Meanwhile three states - Colorado, Washington and Oregon - voted on proposals to legalize marijuana including for recreational use, going further than a number of states which already allow it for medicinal purposes.
...Florida voters meanwhile rejected a proposal to ban the use of public funds for abortion or for insurance coverage for the service, according to partial results..

American gave it to themselves up the weewee
If you count the Obama/McCain voting against this....there are 13 million fewer people who voted this time around. That’s the whole state of Illinois.
starting in january, 61% of my check is supposed to go to paying to kill babies, blaspheme the church, and support the dope smoking hippies??
yea... i’m right on that
Those votes were discarded I bet.
All those digits. no paper trails.
True. The moral majority is now the moral minority. Welcome to Sodom. Soon we won’t just be ignored, we’ll be despised.
Number one issue on my ballot.
Major party presidential candidates who shared this conviction? Zero.
Thank God this terrible and devastating election season is finally over.
“Soon we wont just be ignored, well be despised.”
True, Christ even promises this.
Very true. We are now a carbon copy of Europe... weak, secularist, socialist.
The only difference is, America is less educated, filthier and more violent.
Amazing how so many news outlets are more hyped about marijuana and gay marriage than the fact that our credit score is on a downslide and we are about to become the next USSR.
“Very true. We are now a carbon copy of Europe... weak, secularist, socialist.”
Nature abhors a vacuum.
just wondering how long God will tolerate this madness?
Sadly, my prediction of a second American revolution or civil war WILL more likely happen, MARK MY WORDS.
This country I am very afraid, is going to come apart down the road because of what has happened yesterday.
“Don’t blame Romney — the entire electorate has shifted leftwards....”
That’s a fact. Sucks but true.
Obama sacrificed NC to back gay marriage but it didn’t hurt him anywhere else.
I’m afraid the country has already gone over the edge, yesterday’s election just sealed our fate
Exactly true. This wasn’t a Romney loss or even a GOP loss. This was a conservative loss.
Soon? It’s already happening and has been happening since the 90s
I've lived in Poland for the past 2.5 years and am happy to say it's not in the same moral league as the UK or France or Germany or the north-east of the US now...
Sadly, it is because the media can get away with lies like this that we're sliding into a cesspool.
Gays were always banned from the military. "Don't ask, don't tell" was all about allowing them into the military. The "repeal" of DADT wasn't a repeal at all; it took DADT a step further to allow them to be in the military openly.
It's the same thing with gay "marriage". The left portrays attempts to preserve marriage as being brand new laws to make gay "marriage" illegal. The truth is, it was never legal. The advocates of gay "marriage" then challenge laws confirming the definition of marriage as a means to make legal what has never been legal.
Until we start confronting the left squarely on those lies, we're going to keep losing.
Stay in Poland friend. We may need someone there to help with immigration. If I remember right, you can now pass for local.
Don’t come back home. There won’t be a home much longer I’m afraid.
Legalizing marijuana isn’t a liberal position and no, I’ve never smoked the stuff.
One hundred years ago, my ancestors left Poland to escape the tyranny of the Russian occupiers. It may be time to return to the land of my ancestors.
If I were a liberal, I’d be laughing too.
Majorities want a border crackdown - but the border is open.
Majorities do NOT want abortions government funded - it will be.
Majorities want Obamacare repealed - you can forget that.
Majorities want taxes lowered - it’s off the table.
There’s a reason they are laughing at us. I would be too.
It’s clear what’s happening. Romans one describes us to a “T”. We have moved from God and he has “given us over” to the depths of human depravity. This is how every great civilization has ended. Things will get worse. Much worse. Become self sufficient and get right with God because there’s a hard rain gonna fall.
No, it won't. Conservatism is the new Confederacy. The takers outnumber us. It is more likely that the US would follow what is going on in Greece, with a slide toward anarchy until a new tyrant steps forward.
Lets not forget free birth control and abortions on the horizon.
The dumbing and numbing down of America continues.
Like I said America is like an alcoholic that hasn’t hit bottom yet.
I traveled through Poland in 1991 and liked it. Are conditions such that Americans might consider immigrating there?
this is a cultural change
HOWEVER, I believe culture can be changed back...
Maybe in a very gradual, generational process, but not in any of our lifetimes.
I’m talking about everyone. It won’t just be homosexual activists in your face, it will be your friends and family.
yes, thanks. A great summary and an excellent read.
