Inasmuch as the Florida Supreme Court -- in their liberal opinion -- will overturn whatever the voters dictate in the voting booth, when it contradicts their predetermined Party-line agenda, what difference does it make!

If you want "change" in Florida, REAL change, vote to impeach the State Supreme Dorks.

Before they impeach us!

It's always scary when the big up-front message has a lot of "weight" and visibility, since then the little unsuspected stuff can successfully 'hide' in the background. Like "One Man, One Woman" for marriage does NOT make it very obvious just what happens to 'domestic partner' arrangements (like benefits and health care) for unmarried couples. And those "tax breaks for waterfront businesses" -- what about the earlier presentation of this same amendment which made an issue about taxing 'undeveloped' water frontage at 'developed' rates??

You know what will cause me to vote yes on banning gay marriage? Having to walk into my job during gay pride month and having a gay pride flag hanging right in my face as you walk in the main doors and a whole wall dedicated to gay pride crap. When the gay rights activist say, "it doesn't effect you", that's lie, because they love to shove it in your face, even in corporate America, where it has no place. I didn't have much of an opinion either way, now I do!

Whomever says gay marriage does not affect you is correct. The fact that gay people offend you is not a problem with gay people, it is your problem. There are and always have been gay people, you are just going to have to deal with it.

Lest anyone forget, this is the same state that voted in 2000 for a high-speed rail amendment, then in 2004, changed their minds and voted it down. No one in this dumba*s state even knows what they're voting for, or even cares to educate themselves.

I have no faith come election day this year or any other.

I think that we have no right to push our views on someone else! This amendment will hurt others besides gay people like elderly women who cannot marry their partner because they will lose benefits from their first husbands Social security.
But of course the right wing republicans want to tell us how to live and cram it down our throats!
This is why Obama is going to win because we the people are tired of it!
Get out and vote Obama supporters:)!

This is NOT just about gay marriage, this is also going to effect domestic couples, elderly that don't want to get married at their age, etc. Look into things before you vote on them.

He is too much of a sheep to understand that. You cannot change ignorance - it has to fade away. Florida is a joke anyway.

LOL! The anti-gay amendment wasn't really created for that group of people who look into things before they make up their mind. These are people who claim to be conservatives, yet they'll dicker with the Constitution in order restrict the private contracts entered into by others.

This does NOT need to be in our state's constitution. If you don't like gay marriage in Florida then you don't have anything to worry about-it's already against the law. There is no reason to change the state's constitution for a moral/ethical issue (if you choose to look at it that way).

I shudder every time an Amendment gets added to the ballot because the overwhelming majority of voters blindly pass them without reading them! Anyone remember the class size amendment? Or Crist's favorite Amendment one? What successes those turned out to be!

Read the Amendments. VOTE NO.

I'm not a repub or democrat. Don't consider myslef liberal or conservative. I've had gay friends in the past and have a few now. But I will vote against gay marriage. It damages the sacred sanctity of marriage.

I do not believe that the government has ANY right to determine who you can and cannot marry based on Sex, religion etc.... it does not matter. To all of you supporters what if it was the other way around and same sex amrriage was allowed but not different sex marriage? We should have the freedom of expression and if a man loves a man or a woman loves another woman who are we to judge? Who are we to judge love? I am voteing NO on Amend2 (and Im straight) And if you one minded numnuts would alos look this amendemtn would screw over single parents and widowed husands and wives. OH but wait I forgot you aholes do not read the ifne print.

Exactly. I couldn't even go to work 2 weekends ago when they were having their pride fest because Buddy Dyin-To-Come-Out-Of-The-Closet shut down the city and allowed all manner of lewd and lascivious behavior to happen downtown.

I think it is wrong that if I ever have to see you I have to hear or see your with your wife or girlfriend as you shove it in my face that you are straight. Here's an idea lets ban different sex mrriage and see where your thoughts are
