Mark your calendars for November 2nd

Gay marriage proposition 2nd on November ballot

At present, Texas state law bans same-sex marriages. But on the books for the November 2nd election is a Constitutional ammendment solidifying that law, basically protecting it from judicial review and forever making it illegal for gays and lesbians to form a legal union.

Conservatives are planning a massive campaign to mobilize their political base to turn out for the election, which traditionally doesn't draw many takers because there are no big name presidential campaigns happening in the "off-season".

Anyone who feels that this is a social issue and not a legislative one, needs to mark their calendars now, and show up at the polls to let the neo-cons know that it's not up to the government to dictate how we can live our lives. If you want big government out of your homes and back into determining our national and international policies, now's your chance.

Whether or not you're gay, do you want the government to tell you what in your life is acceptable or not?

What if they decide next that Pro Wrestling should be banned (they sure look gay to me), or even NASCAR (have you seen the Garnier Fructis car?).

Or maybe legislation that regulates scientific research that suggests other than creation science?

Be at the polls on November 2nd, vote NO on the Constitutional ammendment, and breathe easier knowing that the government will not be able to dictate how you live your life.

I'll be there. Please be there too.
