My partner and I have been together for over 11 years now. We'd love to get married, but we can't in Virginia. So we're supporting Vote No On Prop 8. I feel good knowing that we did our part to show our support of Californian Gays and Lesbians to stay and get married!
That's right, Californian Gays and Lesbians can get married, but Prop 8 will change all that and take away the rights of these couples. At one time the Conservative movement was against the removing the rights of American citizens and the US Government intrusions into the lives of its citizens.
But, no longer. It seems that the Conservative movement is about less Government intrusion except for....<they get to fill in the blank>
Take a moment and think about what other rights that the current radical conservatives will want to remove next. Are you certain that they wont disapprove of something in your life? How far does this go? When do we stand up and say "No More!"
Here are some facts from Vote No On Prop 8's web site.
Here's a video from Ellen DeGeneres that sums up my feelings on Prop 8.
Based on the news its not looking good for those opposing Prop 8. So please donate to this cause, if anything stand up to stop the reduction of rights! America is about freedom!
