How else could it be? The world has enough troubles without making the wheels of justice and equality roll backwards also. Congratulations to the Maine citizens who made this possible, to President Obama for his support and his recent victory and to my friends in the Topix forum.

After Giving a week and a half of vacation to this project, I am both proud of my small contribution ,and humbled by the efforts of so many for sustained periods. Let no one imagine that Maine was in any way "lucky". This victory resulted from a disciplined strategy carried out by a few paid staff an thousands of volunteers. There is no magic that could have produced this result. There is no simple way to buy such a result, despite the whining we are about to hear from the losers Brian, Maggie, et al.n thousands of volunteers each committing to several, dozens, and even hundreds of shifts persuaded one voter at a time to vote yes, and to actually vote. Each vote is a victory acquired meticulously and intensively. It could be done only with massive people power. And the gay community could never have accomplished tikis victory without thousands of straight allies.

Many thanks to all who helped.

Um dear, if what he is saying is irrelevant, why did you make a point of quoting it? He's spamming the threads, his posts will eventually, deservedly go bye-bye, all except for the one you so thoughtfully saved for us.

9 states will now have marriage equality, with California to come at the end of the month (#10).

This will likely push Illinois to pass their marriage bill in the lame duck session as well (#11).

Delaware & Rhode Island will vote early in 2013 (#12 & #13).

Gee, I wonder if NOM and the anti-gays will be pushing for a vote of the people in those states now?

and Minnesota had an anti-equality constitutional amendment which the voters defeated 51.3% to 47.6%
