Oct 9, 2012 Full story: New Hampshire Public Radio - 17

Rion Tucker is covering a lot of ground in his home state of Maine these days. The 20-year-old is a canvasser for Equality Maine, and he's been knocking on lots of doors in an effort to make sure that voters in his state pass a ballot initiative in November legalizing same-sex marriage.

The anti-gays are just now releasing their ads in Maine, Maryland, Washington, & Minnesota.

As expected they are the same ads from the '08 California & '09 Maine campaigns. Essentially kids will be taught to get gay married in school and every religious person will be sued.

I HOPE the pro-equality side has figured out an effective response.

It's not like we did all know this was coming!!!!!!

Vote early! I already did!! I've been handing out applications that I downloaded so people can apply to vote early! It's so easy and you can vote at home. Hit up those people you know who might decide to just avoid voting because it's just one more thing to do after a busy work day. What I liked about voting at home was that there were some people and issues I wasn't familiar about, so I just did some internet searches and made a more informed choice.

WHat I like about absentee ballots is that they are real paper ballots, not electronics.

Considering the idiot is not from Texas, and his vote means nothing because he is a convicted felon, let's not make the poor steer suffer! LOL

I always tell people to vote against anything that sounds even remotely gay or queer.

This is a Civil Rights matter which means it's illegal to even have a vote in any State to start with. It's not even legal to vote on the Civil Rights of self let alone others.

Since the States is the most secular nation on earth and marriage is nothing more than a Religious ceremony LGBT have always been free to do in all States and the word marriage being Religious is not allowed in the Constitution in that form; federal law will soon have Civil Unions for LGBT in all 50 States as it has for heteros. Once that happens, all LGBT marriages will be legalized on the federal level and each State will be forced to provide the document to couples in love even if the National Guard is called into a few bigoted States to enforce it like Alabama or Utah.

The battle has been won. It is now just getting all the documents together for the Amended Constitution to ensure people understand what Civil Rights means.

NE and I are getting married. He's going to bend me over his knee on the wedding night and do as he wants.
