Also, I'm not well-versed in all the issues mentioned, but I am definitely sure that LGBT rights would have taken a HUGE step backwards in this country considering Romney's religious beliefs and the factions he presents. Maybe you don't understand because you are not as part of that particular minority than I have, but the four years under Obama has seen some very realistic and positive changes for LGBT and especially trans-people, change that never happened under Bush and would never ever happen if the Republican conservatives were pulling strings on a religiously conservative president. I'm not trying to focus on that one issue, it just happens to be the one I know most about; I was able to get all my legal ID corrected and made consistent because of Obama, involving my passport, and my passport is a form of national ID that allows me to change other ID. So when you start listing all these things that Obama accused the Republicans of not wanting to do while in office... well, actually he's right at least on that issue; I'm really tired of being disenfranchised in this country because of right-wing politics.
I did not vote for just this one issue in the election, I'm more comprehensive, but yeah, actually Romney and the Republicans with the loudest voices in this country ARE bad for LGBT people regarding marriage and rights. you wouldn't have seen me complaining about needing to flee to Canada if Romney would have won, but it would have been very depressing at least in regards to that issue to basically have another four years of lack of progress or even going backwards. Maybe you'd feel differently if you were a woman living in this country before equal rights, and you'd get a sense of what that means to be treated as "less than" and have your rights restricted not because of anything you've done to break the law or in how you treat people, yet you are treated as inferior all the same in what rights you have and how you are discriminated against in work and housing and medical needs.
I spent my entire life living in a conservative Christian wasteland, listening to this kind of shit being espoused at church, in my circles of friends, at Thanksgiving dinners with my family. (The last five years of my 40+ year old life, I've been trying to surround myself with less obnoxious people.) I circulated among various churches in different denominations, not just one. I'm really confused as to how you read nothing of Ryan's speech on Yahoo (for god's sake -- it wasn't even like I pulling up a specialized partisan news site), and it's the same crap all my religious conservative friends have been spouting on FaceBook. My own mother told me unsolicitized on Sunday night that this country was becoming "Sodom and Gamorrah." I'm very confused as to how you have missed this in just the general news, even if you don't happen to be surrounded/engulfed by conservative religion and rural Republicans.
