  •  HERE from MAINE.... This would be a great victory (0+ / 0-)

    Because the loss was so relatively recent.

    TASK FORCE: Election 2012...Back in Maine...

    includes some personal commentary and:

    Maine is an example of what it looks like for the LGBT community to stand up and go after what they want, what they deserve, what they need. I came out 12 years ago and am part of that bombastic generation of gay people who are standing on the shoulders of those who have come before us — out and unapologetic about it. The truth is, we lost the vote in 2009. But Mainers have a history of pushing back — they don’t quit until they win. The loss in 2009 was one step in an incredibly important public conversation happening all over a deceptively large state.

    This is Maine’s second marriage campaign — with each surge forward we are certain that catalyzing open, honest and vulnerable conversations about gay people is powerful. Breaking down stereotypes and building authentic relationships with voters is good. Each conversation is one step closer. Each straight ally that steps forward to be with us is a win. Each LGBT person who comes out because of this campaign is a victory.

    DEMOCRACY is a Relay Race... and you pass the baton by VOTING! So don't vote for OBAMA, VOTE for M&M's, MEDICARE and MIDDLECLASS
