ELECTION 2008: ENDORSEMENT: Amendments not in Ohio

Arizona... *NO* on Proposition 102

In 2006, Arizona became the first state in the union to defeat a Defense of Marriage Act by popular vote. Not happy with their loss, anti-marriage Arizonans put it back on the ballot this year. I mean, really, are they going to do this in 2010, as well, if they lose. Anyways, polls are close again, so go out and vote no again. It doesn't even legalize gay marriage. It only blocks putting the definition of marriage as "one man and one woman" into the state constitution.

Vote no, and let's end this silly cycle. Contribute here.

California... *NO* on Proposition 8

California's Supreme Court has said gay marriage must happen in the state. The State Assembly voted for gay marriage, to be veto'd by the Governator, Arnold. Now that marriage is happening, opponents are taking it back to the ballot. A yes vote would eliminate new gay marriages in the state of California. A no vote would allow them to continue, though there is a legal argument that those that have all ready occured would still go through..

Vote no. Contribute here.

Florida... *NO* on Amendment 2

Also a gay marriage amendment, doing much the same as in every other state. Blah, blah, blah. Defining marriage as one man, one woman, not allowing other unions to be recognized. Aren't they aware of full faith and credit clause, and that the minute it gets to the Supreme Court all these little things are goners? Apparently not.

Vote no. Contribute here. Or here.

At least there are only 3 this year, as opposed to 11 in 2004.
