I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Marriage equality - my 2 cents

Well, the Supreme Court has heard the arguments on Marriage Equality and now the waiting begins.  Will this be a nail-biter?  I don't think so.  There are a lot of opinions out there as to who is going to win - the progressives / independents or the social conservatives.  You'll notice how I noted the progressives / independents as basically one group.  They're in favor of marriage equality.  They are also one of the largest voting blocks in the United States.   An NBC/WSJ survey shows you how large that voting block is.  It's not secret the GOP wants to put one of their guys in the White House.  A ruling against marriage equality might sway many of those voters towards a popular Democratic candidate during the general election.

There are not enough voters in the blue states to win a General Election

Do you really think the GOP wants that to happen?  A long time ago I'd written that in order for the GOP to win, they would most likely throw the Social Conservatives under the bus.  If the Supreme Court rules in favor of Marriage Equality and if they know how to handle such a decision, that action is no longer necessary.  Oh, and it is a conservative backed Supreme Court.  While it wouldn't give the Republicans a 'get out of jail free' card, it would unlock the door.
