Scott Keller on Civil Rights
A: That is accurate; correct at least without completely redefining "affirmative action". Actual stances:
A: I only support the right of "same-sex" adults to enter into a contract, including a domestic partnership. I do not support the gay/lesbian lifestyle at all. I'd like for people to just live their lives and not share their sexual world with the public. Primarily I say the government should be out of the picture.
Q: Do you agree with that "Marriage is a state and local issue"?
A: This one's accurate--as local as possible and as non-government as possible.
A: Strongly oppose. I don't believe in government getting involved outside of providing grants. I'd prefer to help women and minorities start their own businesses or find new approaches, rather than enslave them to a job, but they should have better education and the same options as everyone else. Again, "other approach".
A: Favor, as I believe no two adults should be unable to enter into a mutually agreed upon contract. I prefer the government stay out of it and let adults enter contracts they want to live by. I do NOT condone the lifestyle, but I do support their freedom to live their lives as they choose.
A: I fully support same-sex domestic partnerships and the equality of these partnerships under law. I believe that any two people should be able to enter into a contract, and have that contract honored. Benefits that comes as a result of a marriage contract should be viable in a civil union contract as well. I am an advocate of freedom. This is supposed to be a free country.
A: I fully support equality in the workplace and in hiring practices, and the end of discrimination against women and minorities. However, I do not support affirmative action, which is effectively reverse discrimination, and doesn't ultimately solve the problems of racism and sexism. I favor new and innovative approaches to truly empowering women and minorities through local economic & business models. Local coop non-profit businesses, local economic models, untying the hands of non-profit and alternative model businesses greatly increase the career options available to all people because of the new employment needs they create. By working on a local level, community members who know each other and have a stake in their community will be working together, and corporate imposed discrimination will dissolve. We are all people, and we should not discriminate on the basis of race or gender.
