• Voting no means against?
  • No on prop 8 :)
  • Thank you. Indeed, you should vote no. A "yes" vote would enshrine discrimination in the California state constitution.
  • You should follow your heart - don't let anyone tell you how to vote. If you think it's a good thing, vote for it. Otherwise, vote against it.
  • No is a vote for justice and equality. Yes is a vote for bigotry and the oppression of a minority. So you just have to pick your favorite values.
  • For those who don't know, I took the time to google this: Proposition 8 is an initiative on the California General Election ballet and concerns the right for same sex marriage. Specifically, it would amend the California Constitution to add a section stating: "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." I cannot advise you on which way you should vote on this, chaodoze. I can only advise you on HOW you should vote: 1. You must be a California resident and registered to vote (which I'm assuming you are), or you really have no say in this. 2. You must vote your conscience. This is a hot potato with respect to politics and personal & religious beliefs. Consider your inner beliefs and values carefully before you vote. That's really all I can say.
  • I'm voting Yes, but the beauty of voting is that you get to choose what you think is right.
  • Do you know what rights a married gay couple would have under the law as opposed to what they have now in a partnership? I would have to take the emotions out of an emotional issue and see what the tangible benefits would be. If it's just being able to say "we're married", I would vote no. Many people choose to be committed to each other without benefit of marriage. But if it involves benefits that can't be covered by power of attorney or other legal means, then I would consider voting yes.
  • i'm voting yes!
