    A variety of No on 8 ads

    Posted by: Andoni

    As I write this I am doing my part in the GOTV. I have the list of new voters I registered and am now making sure they vote. About half already voted in early voting and the rest I'm on top of today. Ninety percent of my people have voted, and I'm willing to do whatever it takes to get the other 10% to the polls today.

    As amusement between calling people, I just looked at the variety of ads the "No on Prop 8" people have put together. Matt Coles of the ACLU's LGBT Project just emailed me from San Francisco. He's biting his nails and says it's going to be close on Prop 8, so if you have influence with people out there, now's the time to call them.

    It will be interesting to see if Californian's can learn from history or whether we humans are destined to continue repeating the same types of mistakes and injustices we have caused in the past? It is now almost universally agreed that the discrimination against Japanese Americans during World War II and the discrimination against people who wanted to marry a person of another race were wrong, but at the time the majority did not see it that way.

    Tonight we wil find out if the majority of California voters have been able to learn from these lessons of history.

    BTW, my favorite anti Prop 8 ad is below in case you haven't seen it. The others linked above are quite good too.

      Currently Prop 8 is passing. I am Mad as hell that Blacks do not think I as a gay man deserve to be free of discrimination. I am Mad at Obama and the rest of the Democratic leaders did not do more to defeat this, and lastly I am Mad as hell at the American People for being so cold and heartless. It could still be defeated, but I doubt it. The bigots have won!
