I wish Colorado had pushed for a constitutional referendum vote this year instead of waiting for 2016. This will likely be over by then. As much as I hate our rights being voted on, it would have been nice to overturn at least one of these constitutional bans at the ballot box.

Here, I see your point -- just one state, seeing it actually happen, in a state which literally (and ludicrously; I'll never budge on how ludicrous these votes were, as they were all based in utter lies and misrepresentations) which literally voted TO "BAN" THIS voting the other way.

Absolutely; I agree.

One would hope it's not out of the question that this may happen in *some* state. For once, the number "31" may look appealing -- technically, LOL, there are 31 potential chances for this to happen.

A vote is unlikely to happen before 2016 in any of those states, and by then any vote would likely be moot.

I have a cat that's moot and has never meowed or made a sound at all in 16 years. I named him "Moot".

OK; so be it. I don't care how it happens, and I am not critical of any fight so long as people continue to give it everything they've got.

If some adverse set of circumstances throws these rights in question, to me that is wholly immaterial; you fight county by county if you have to.

Anyway.

I can't wait for the "ban" to fall.
