“I was an Eisenhower Republican when I started out at 21, because he promised to get us out of the Korean War.
“And over the years, I realized there was a Republican philosophy that I liked. And then they lost it. And libertarians had more of it. Because what I really believe is, let’s spend a little more time leaving everybody alone.” (emphasis mine)
But here is what really captured my heart and ensured my undying admiration and love for the man:
"These people who are making a big deal about gay marriage? I don’t give a fuck about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not?! We’re making a big deal out of things we shouldn’t be making a deal out of. Just give everybody the chance to have the life they want."
He also ripped the GOP by telling GQ Magazine that "that Republicans should cut out the 'sanctity crap' when it comes to gay marriage." Although this mamma doesn't think she can improve much on Mr. Eastwood's advice, I'd actually go one better by telling the GOP to cut the "sanctity crap" when it comes to everything.
