    ... while we're at it.  

    This isn't a Mormon problem, altho they make a convenient scapegoat because they ran the 2008 Olympics of Canvassing and GOTV.  It's the Republicans figured out how to run the "vote on sex" issues again, successfully.

      They championed the initiative, raised nearly all of the money for it, ran nearly all of the GOTV and phonebanking campaign, and ramrodded it through. They deserve the lion's share of the blame.

      Republicans? Excuse me? What, in their attempt to swing California to John McCain this cycle? In what universe was the GOP involved in Prop 8?

      This one is on the Mormons, and we will never forget.

        ... notes on financial funding of campaigns, and then go stuff it.  

        It's not a "Mormon problem."  They're just the vehicle, somebody else drove the car.  But the Republican Party wants the low info types to think that.   Just like the Mormons, on their blogs, tried to blame the African Americans and Latinos for passing this POS proposition, when people started posting about where the money was coming from.

        While you're at it, re read the Constitution, too, since you obviously missed a few lines.

        You don't figure out what the opposition is doing by reading this site. You go into their media and see what they're posting.  I've done that.  You obviously haven't.

            ... I'm representing no "us" here.  When I make the legal arguments elsewhere to refute the political pros using religious crazies, they assume I'm gay, male, and indulge in assorted namecalling, so they're equally clueless based on stereotyping.  My intent is to prevent further violence on both sides and not give the Republican Party more weapontry to use against a new Democratic administration.  That administration intends to be a government for all people.

            "No Drama, Obama."  Remember that?

            Prop 8 as conducted by the Republicans, was the warm up for the battle against financial reforms in the banking and health industries.

            Your intent may vary, but if you want to make an a$$ out of yourself, don't let me stop you.

              Yours is the one true perspective? Yours are the only tactics guaranteed to succeed? Forgive me my disagreement! What an ass I've made of myself!

                .... I'm not typing this out for you, I'm typing this out just in case other people may not want to be used in the next "Move America Forward Backwards" advertisement.
