Vote No!

Unlike several states who are having votes to legalize it, on the ballot here in Minnesota this November is a measure to add a permanent government ban on marriage for same-sex couples. You see, it's already not legal -- they just want to make it MORE not legal.

Polls show that the divide between those who are going to "vote yes" (support the ban) and those who are going to "vote no" is pretty slim. However, the "vote no" yard signs are more prevalent by a disproportionately wide ratio, which makes me suspect that the people who will "vote yes" are too cowardly and ashamed to reveal how bigoted they really are to their neighbors.

I live in a conservative, partially rural county. I'd long suspected that we might be one of few liberal-minded families in our neighborhood, so I was pleasantly surprised to see three "vote no" signs on lawns nearby. Guess how many "vote yes"es? Zip. They must be out there, but they're not willing to admit it.
