Republican Senator: 'F**k It,' Gays Should Marry

6/17/2011 11:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Republican New York State Senator Roy McDonald has SHATTERED party lines in support of gay marriage -- telling reporters, "F**k it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing."

The battle rages on in New York to legalize gay marriage -- but McDonald threw his hat in the ring earlier this week ... with the greatest statement of all time, claiming, "You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn't black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing."

"You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, f**k it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing."

"I'm tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I'm trying to do the right thing, and that's where I'm going with this."

With McDonald's support, the gay marriage bill is only ONE vote shy of being made into law -- which would make New York the sixth state to legalize gay marriage.

Good for him!!! His constituents should be proud to have a man like him representing them. It's refreshing to see someone who votes their own convictions and not the party line.

Yes! "F*** it, do the right thing" Words to live by!

The more America continues to turn away from God and his teachings; we will continue in a downward spiral. We are slowly elimintating God from our country, and look at how we are declining as a nation.

Horrible of him to give up on his morals. He lost himself to being pushed around and bullied into a decision he is clearly not satisfied in making.

Hey stoner, dont panic. There are SO MANY children born out of wedlock that are put up for adoption. I dont think the future population will suffer. Now, go back to your bong and bag of weed and sit there being an unproductive, closed-minded drain on society.

Good to know that YOU know he was "pushed" into making a decision. Did it dawn on you that he is a BIG BOY and can make up his own mind?

Face some facts here Roberg - the world is changing so you can either roll with it or live behind the times.

What a breath of fresh air that someone decides to stand for what is right instead of standing with party lines! I get so sick of this democrat republican partisan agenda B.S. We need more politicians with independent thinking minds.

@slobuddy "Now if only the politicians would say f*ck it and stop issuing unemployment checks maybe we could get this economy rolling."

The US national debt is over $14 trillion and in 2010 they issued $163 billion in employment benefits. So if unemployment checks were cut entirely the savings would mean it would take well over one hundred years to pay off the debt. Excluding the costs incurred in dealing with the unemployed.

I think it'd be great if a politician said "f*ck it" and dedicated themselves to improving adult numeracy.
