Some acquaintances of mine are only now waking up to the fact that the Democratic Party has played us for fools. It has been obvious to me for a while that they have been.
Democrats are no more committed to LGBT issues than Republicans are to smaller government. Both major parties are mystery cults; what they say to the masses and what they say among themselves are dramatically different.
From my own involvement in major-party politics, I recall a Maryland party leader telling us that party stalwarts did not actually believe their own campaign rhetoric; they just pretended to believe it to get votes. I remember him whenever I hear the outer-party true believers claim that their candidates will deliver on their promises.
