    and I don't wanna give to any group that might do an equally amateur job of the court fight.

      the Equality groups are probably the worst.  Equality Colorado ran a worse campaign back in 1992, from everything I saw advertised and their response to the Yes ads, at that time.

      Sixteen years later, and I feel nothing has really been learned.  I started to, but stopped (because it was depressing me) reading a scholarly book about the anti-gay initiative campaigns that were waged back in the 90's.  I feel like maybe if we read about it and learn from it, maybe we as grassroots activists can learn something that the consultants apparently do not.

        Everything else is secondary.

        The people running the campaigns -- those in charge of the campaigns and hiring the consultants -- are the ones who really merit our disapproval.

        I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of their way and let them have it. - Dwight D. Eisenhower
