7 Days remain

Everyone once in a while you'll get an email that you don't know if it's true or accurate or not. I tried to figure out the following letter/thoughts and did find it on the Investor's Iraq Forum. I could not disprove it on Snopes or TruthorFiction. But I tend to lean toward wanting to share it because I relate to the sentiment. So what the heck:
A serious comment by Bill Lear (Lear jet)
Thank you to the anonymous blog-commentor.
But you're WRONG!

Sigh...I am trying to understand and respect your views...I really am. Anyone can build a case for or against anyone with the right spin and angle. Again, although we may never know until we place someone in power how they will really be (as it is often pointed out - no one has experience running a country as a first term president) I still can't join a club, be part of an organization or support a party that has, at one of it's tenets, the goal to prevent all people from obtaining their civil rights. I'm not trying to convince you to see things my way, I'm trying to understand why and how, as a gay man, you can support the Republican party...so I continue to read and struggle to get it, but at the end of the day, I have too much respect for myself my husband my friends and my community and you to sacrifice any chance at any of us gaining equality casting my vote for a party that would see me and my kind forever banned from first class citizenship through their push for constitutional amendments and faith based initiatives.Not to mention the repealing of womens rights and civil liberties across the board. Perhaps the problem is, for some of us, we're not voting for a man, we're voting for an idea, a potential, a piece of hope for a better future for ourselves and our loved ones...and at the end of the day, that matters more than anything...I just can't support a man, woman or a party that doesn't support me as a rule. And the Rs have had 8 years to make things better....how many more years do we give them before we try a different approach. Sorry, I shouldn't even be posting this and respect that we disagree, but it's hard for me because I just don't understand....and I want to. I really do.
