    same sex marriage, but as far as I know, they weren't actively campaigning against it or fighting to pass state laws that outlawed it. Republicans made outlawing same sex marriage an integral plank of their party platform and have fought tooth and nail in congress and the state legislatures that they contol to prevent its acceptance as a legal right under the constitution. While Hillary, Barack, Joe and other Democrats took too long to take a public stand in favor marriage equality, they haven't deliberately tried to prevent it from happening or spoken out against it. Nice try Stuart, but your comparison isn't accurate, just desperate.
