Cover more than Dems and Repubs

OK, I admit I’m behind in my reading and just read the November 2012 issue of QSaltLake. Why do you list only Democratic and Republican candidates? Both the Libertarian and Justice parties have better positions on queer rights than the Democrats and Republicans. Is protecting Democratic Party candidates more important to QSaltLake than promoting queer rights?

And don’t hide behind the “electability” factor that Equality Utah cites in its endorsements.  Elections are not just about who serves in office the next two, four or six years.  Elections are also about political education and the possibility of new political parties developing and people learning about how politics can be, not just about what is now.
