    Nobody’s forcing you to be a Republican, have you considered leaving?

    1. The republican platform is more then gay rights or mentality. It has to do with limiting government, and bla bla bla like they say. So thats why he’s a republican because of other things, but now-a-day’s young republicans under 35 yrs old are liberal on gay rights, Like really they are more in favor of what they say “civil marriage” which is equal marriage then their old republican piers. But they say civil marriage like that because they don’t want to offend the religious side of the republican party and are in favor of EDNA which is a protection that has not been passed to protect LGBT from not being allowed to get a job because of how they define their sexuality. But the republican platform is struggling because their old followers are dying out and their new young followers view LGBT rights as american rights. But the youth wont be in power for a good 10ish maybe more years. What a fucking embarrassment.

      1. the problem with the Republican platform is it’s all lies.
        they want smaller government.. but they want government intrusion into fields where there shouldn’t be intrusion.
        they believe in a free market, but they spend all their time trying to rig the system so their rich buddies can make more money.

        they’re a bunch of lying hypocrites.

        1. Mikey preach the good word, Thats so true.

      2. “The republican platform is more then gay rights or mentality.”

        He failed say what it is that he does see in the Republican Party.

        He wants to reduce the gap between rich and poor.
        He supports abortion rights for women.
        He wants to stand up against greedy capitalist who hijack culture for their own ends.

        He is clearly a very confused “Republican”.

        1. Ps from my quote it appears I believe you support his stance that was not what I inferred from your comment. Sorry about that

  2. Best title of any article !! That should be the republican platform.

  3. It obviously hasn’t occurred to him that he is not a republican.

    A bit dim perhaps?

    1. Just about as dim as all the people, all over the world, who view political parties as sports teams and can only vote for the team they blindly follow, regardless of their policies or how well they represent their interests.

  4. I wish I understood why most parties of the right pay lip service to “small government” yet many would be happy for the “small government” to withold the right to marriage for many consenting adults? That’s not “small government” that’s big nanny state government.
    Before anyone chips in about beastiality and necrophilia remember we are talking about walking, talking consensual adults here. What happened to “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”?

    1. “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” only applies for white, rich, protestant middle-aged men.
      everyone else is a serf to them.

  5. Rick Santorum thinks it would be suicidal for the Republican party to support gay marriage? The guys a complete loon detached from reality!

    Public sentiment is moving more and more to the left in the US, and the results of the last election show that the new generation of young Americans do not align with the Republican party on this issue.

    To NOT support gay marriage and equality is what’s suicidal!

    The Repub party is splitting, the radical right and religious idiots are being consolidated into one group that will have to leave the party if it’s to survive. This will happen whether Santorum believes it or not. The numbers do not lie.

    I think Kid Rock needs to learn more about US politics, he seems to support what many independents support, he doesn’t HAVE to support either party. In fact he’s an idiot for doing so.

    Interesting: You can have the “F” word in an ARTICLE on PN, but if you use it in a reply it gets deleted……

    1. You do have to put up with the email bit though.

  7. Kid Rock’s support (?) of the GOP is baffling, considering his avowed positions on the issues. I suspect he joined and supports the party partly because of the Dems’ frequent lack of spine.
