Yes, it is Definitely Now or Never

The strongest currency is your voice. We’re down to the wire and the polls show that it’s going to be close. In just a few days, we may be celebrating another victory, just like in 2006, or we may be left wondering what more we could have done.

The single most important thing that you can do now is talk to all your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, and even strangers on the street, in the convenience stores and malls, and at the events you participate in. Wear your “Vote No on Prop 102” buttons to invite questions; and plant your yard signs prominently. Give this campaign a human face.

Why is this important? Because supporters of Prop 102 simply do not know how harmful and unnecessary this constitutional “marriage amendment” is. They simply don’t get it.

Because if they were really interested in protecting “marriage,” they would be thinking about creating constitutional amendments that strengthened the economy and banned divorce, infidelity, domestic violence and substance abuse (the top reasons for the failure of all marriages). They would not be arguing over the definition of marriage because these arguments do nothing to protect marriage."

If they also realized that constitutional amendments should be reserved to advance the rights of people and not take away rights from people, then they would also not support it.

This is why it is imperative that you talk to everyone you know. Tell them how you feel about this proposed amendment and how it will affect you and the people you love.

Who knows if that one person you talk to will be the one that tips the balance? Who knows if that one conversation may not make at least one more person realize their folly in supporting this amendment.

Please make it a point to talk to everyone you know--and even to people you don’t know--until election day. It can make a difference!

Vote No on Proposition 102.
