You people better get it together THIS WEEK unless you want Mitt Romney to win the white house. Romney HATES GAY people and will NOT fund anything to help us in any way. He contributes thousands of $$$$ to every ANTI-GAY organization in the country. Romney wants to wipe out GAY people for good. So stop talking about what Mr. Obama didn't do and focus on what Mitt Romney will NEVER do as a president, Once again he WILL NOT HELP GAY PEOPLE. President Obama is trying to help the gay community. USE your head and brain to THINK
