Don't forget to VOTE!

It is election day.  It's now or never.  This year we are voting upon one of the biggest moral issues that our country has ever faced, that of the definition of marriage.  Eight years ago we voted on this very issue and were able to succeed with a 61% victory to define marriage as being between a man and a women, yet in May of this year with a 4-3 vote the California Supreme overturned the opinion of the people.  On the ballot today we are voting upon a constitutional amendment to once again define marriage between a man and a women.  Many people are trying to treat it as a civils right issue, comparing it to when African Americans or women didn't have the right to vote.  But it is a moral issue.  We are not taking any rights away from individuals that want to live this lifestyle.  They have all the rights that we have in a civil union.  But they want to change the definition of what marriage has been for thousands of years.  Marriage is a union between a man and a women and that is how it should stay.  There are so many other issues that could arise if this proposition doesn't pass, but I am sure you have heard them all.  For our children, for this country, and to protect our rights, get out and vote YES on PROP 8!
