GOPRoud's people speak for themselves at Homocon 2012

(Roxanne Roberts/The Washington Post)
GOProud dipped into the convention social scene Tuesday with Homocon 2012, an invitation-only party for gay conservatives and supporters who believe in limited government and individual empowerment.

Around 600 guests packed into Tampa’s Honey Pot nightclub, where dancers sported “Freedom is Fabulous” t-shirts and Romney buttons were the accessory du jour.

But what made the evening most interesting was the direct honesty some gay supporters shared in terms of their own personal priorities in politics:

“I understand I’m going to be subject to certain limitations,” said Robert Stevens, sporting a Romney/Ryan button late Tuesday night. “I understand I won’t have equal rights. But I also want to be filthy rich, and I think the Republican ticket can get me there.”

I've often said how people vote and where they stand is a reflection of their own priorities in life.  I think it's great that GOProud members are open to sharing their own priorities of wealth over equal rights. 

We all get to choose.
