The "foreign object" was a fan. Why could this not have been stated this way in the post? Beyond that, it feels like a mountain was made out of a molehill....
So why should the government encourage or endorse traditional marriages that have no intent of creating children (because they don't want them or are too old to have them)?

By all means think. Reason it out. If you actually do that you will reach the conclusion that it is better to vote for the Republican than to throw your vote away on a third party or not vote at all and give aid to the Democrat. If you actually think about and reason it though, it is logical. You speak of using critical thinking, but refuse to do so when it defeats your purpose.

Any vote for a third party candidate (or just staying at home) is an implicit vote for the Democrat. That is the reason for voting for the Republican. We need to demote Harry Reid.

"Marriage is about the welfare of children." Agreed. But by making this statement you open the door to asking why then the state should acknowledge/endorse heterosexual marriages that will not produce or raise children (either because they just don't want to or because they are too old to do so). Unfortunately, this illustrates why the issue of homosexual marriage has been able to get the foothold it has - its essentially impossible to argue against it without also including some groups of traditional marriages.

Then you are being short-sighted. Neither candidate may deserve your vote. But one whether you vote for one of them, a third party candidate or no one at all, you ARE influencing the outcome of the election. So it then comes down to the question, do I want my influence, however small it may be, to be for the Democrat and leftist policies or not.
If you have a crystal ball that can tell you which elections can be safely handed over to the Democrats, by all means. Otherwise, this is just silly.
What we have is a two party system. That is reality. It sucks. Deal with it.
The flaw in your logic is that someone will win the election. You can't separate the refusal to vote for the Republican from the benefit to the Democrat by not voting for the Republican.
I hear you. But your actions only aid and abet those who are worse than the Republicans.
You are free to vote (or not) as you wish. That is your right. It is important however, that you understand that any vote not for the Republican is, in essence, a vote for the Democrat.
