There is a petition in Northern California and Oregon was to have state lines redrawn so they can become part of a greater Idaho plan. Most of these people are farmers, conservatives who are tired of the watching civilization collapse into homelessness and squalor.

lgbtq is about 5 % of the population but they wield a lot more power than their size would imply.  They used to say 10 %, but that way they could imply their numbers were more underground.  "Oppressed."
I also think that the moniker was glbtq, but gay lost political clout to the lesbians, who could claim to be "more" oppressed than the gays.  The lgbtq alliance is big in the university, and can get pretty vicious against anybody who does not agree with them.  Particularly conservatives, but also anyone who, unawares' violates their dogma.  But, I do think of them as the tail that wags the dog for the democrat party.  (It is the Democrat party, I don't think that they're democratic anymore.), there are reason why they are so influential, they tend to be quite more educated and richer than average.  They also generally don't have children, so they have more disposable income, they are also very influential in the news media and Hollywood.  Maybe some day they will wake up and realize that they are not as oppressed as they think.  I think gay men like Dave Rubin are starting to realize that things aren't perfect, but are pretty good.

It was unfortunate that in the United States, AIDS was not originally treated as a medical condition and gay politics blocked using infectious disease measures such as quarantine and partner notification.  Laws were passed so that it was illegal to inform people of other people's AIDS status.  So a nurse would get poked by a used needle, and could not find out whether the patient it had been used on, was HIV positive.  If gay men were not marginalized before that, they were then, by activists claiming to represent them by not closing down bathhouses, etc.  I think it is still illegal to inform others of people's HIV status.  The change came with George W. Bush funding to get cheap retrovirals into Africa.  _He_ treated AIDS over there as a medical problem, and that allowed for a change of attitudes and a ratcheting down the fear level in the US.

The reason why there was such an emphasis on a cure for AIDS in the '80s was that gay activists did not want to stop their promiscuous lifestyles that they had developed so much in the '70s.  It is not that things couldn't be done, it is just that they thought that they could avoid doing infectious disease measures.  Cuba ran into the problem fairly early because soldiers were coming back from Angola (and going on leave to Haiti).  Cuba quarantined for AIDS, it wasn't a punishment, in fact the people most effected were soldiers and therefore heroes of the State.  AIDS patients were allowed to live out the rest of their lives in government run homes, where they were taken care of as much as they could be.  We should note that AIDS still doesn't have a cure, but it does have treatments.  There is a book by an AIDS activist (a sane one), called "And the Band Played On"  In other words, the ship was sinking, the Titanic was going down, and the band played on (as if things were normal).  Several 'conservatives' talk about him and his book, when they wrote about the subject. (like Sowell and Horowitz).
