Then your kids are not libertarian.

I'm sorry, but being libertarian and throwing the entire ideology out the window and voting for a band of socialistic tyrants because of one issue is a cop-out, though I don't doubt your honesty regarding how your children would react. That's kind of my point actually, the problem with the "youth vote" is that they are ultimately children, and they tend to reason as such when they vote.

There is ultimately a difference between being practical and being a fanatic, and what you've laid out for me here is fanatical behavior. I'm personally indifferent to the homosexual question, but when it comes to prudence and practicality within the political realm, what I've learned is that America is not a libertarian country, nor will it be if people continue adhering to it as if it were a religion.

America is on the fast track to becoming a 3rd world country under the current regime, and the so-called youth vote being swayed by the people who are causing it because of gay marriage makes me want to muse over writing off the youth vote. But one thing is for certain, nobody is winning the next election with the youth vote, and if I were a betting man I'd wager the ranch on it.
