GOTV Part 1.5

The other side “Got out the Vote”. My candidate lost to the incumbent of ten years. She stomped her foot in the debate. She publicly claimed that when she doesn’t understand a bill, she just votes how “they” tell her too. Who are they? I don’t think they are the voters. But the most appalling is when she refers to gay and lesbian voters as “you people.”

Why do we vote by party and not by principle? Who thinks that “you people” is ever appropriate? Isn’t that like calling a black person “boy?” It has the same connotation. So really, regardless of what you actually believe about gay rights, or even gay people, doesn’t public decorum condemn the use of “you people?” Isn't it a matter of principle?
