On Friday night, I had a conversation with my cab driver about gay marriage, and it didn't go as well as I had hoped. My driver, who was reminiscent of Bob Marley and one of the guys from the Baha Men, seemed to be liberal. WRONG. Apparently, he is a staunch Republican. A low-paid taxi driver. Republican. What? I eventually learned why- religion. This man had no clue really what policies/ideology Republicans supported but loved the GOP because of Jesus. It made me wonder- would religious people vote for Republicans if you took away social issues? The same thing is happening in Ohio and Wisconsin. Public workers are beating themselves in the face for voting in Republicans who want to strip away their rights.
