If you haven't already voted, and you are an American citizen, please vote tomorrow.
I support Barack Obama and would ask you to vote for him too.
If you care about equality, fairness, and the foundations of liberty that this country was built on, I would also ask you, as a Californian, to vote no on Prop 8, a heinous proposition that would encode bigotry and hate into the California Constitution by stating that currently legal marriages will no longer be performed simply because they don't fit someone's religiously-based definition of marriage. It wasn't that long ago that marriage between people of different races was illegal. However, it is now hard to fathom how such discrimination was considered acceptable in civil society. The discrimination behind Prop 8 is no different, and history will judge us harshly if we legalize and enforce that sort of bigotry again. I strongly urge you, for the good of your own personal liberty, and for the protection of our nation's tradition of equality, to vote NO on Prop 8.
Thanks for listening, and please go out and vote.
