I am one of those that Jamie identified as on the more conservative end of the fence. I am a Libertarian, gay, and proud to say it. I support the legalization of drugs, withdrawl from Iraq, and diplomacy instead of war. I also think all government sponsored welfare and entitlement programs (such as social security, medicare, medicaid, etc...) should be immediately eliminated. I don't support gay marriage, or frankly government sponsored marriage of any type. I feel the income tax should be eliminated and replaced with a national sales tax.

If you were to actually sit down and listen to those of us who are gay and conservative, you would find that we have a pretty airtight logic as to why we are conservative. Such as the basis for my beliefs above are founded in my training as an economist. Small, minimal government is best; entitlement programs give people incentives not to work or save; etc... We've based our political beliefs around sound logic and don't just necessarily vote with our sexuality. Our beliefs aren't binary in the sense of liberal=good conservative=bad, but rather they are more gray than you'd think.
