I know I have kept politics somewhat removed from this blog, but I was recently informed of the change in the tide below, am terrified by it, and had to bring it to your attention:
"Following a recent spate of television and radio ads on behalf of a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, a new poll suggests a rise in support for Proposition 8, the ballot measure that would block gay men and lesbians from marrying.
The new poll found that 47 percent expected to vote yes on Proposition 8, which would eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry, while 42 percent expected to vote no. That is a notable difference from a SurveyUSA poll released Sept. 25 which found 44 percent planned to vote yes, while 49 percent planned to vote no — an apparent 10 point swing."- Mercury News, 10/7/2008
If you live in California, I beg of you to vote against Prop 8 and donate to the campaign.
I am calling it "donavoting."
If you don't live in California, I beg of you to donate to the campaign and tell everyone you know who lives in California to jump on the donavoting bandwagon.
To quote a dear friend regarding defeating Prop 8,
"Thank you in advance for your commitment to equality and civil rights for all."
