OK kids…I really appreciate all the support you offer. Really I do!
But you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
You can’t tell me you support Dan’s and my relationship and our right to marriage, yet be willing to consider voting for Dumbya. That is not support.
You can’t tell me you “have my back on the marriage issue” but won’t vote Kerry because of your 2nd amendment rights. Hello! Are you in a “well organized militia?” Those rights don’t apply to you. Moreover, there is not one single politician in this nation stupid enough to attempt, let alone mention taking guns away from Americans. The very idea is un-American. And its political suicide.
You can’t tell me you believe that Dan and I should be allowed the same rights as anyone else who gets married and then vote for George W Bush!
He does not believe this. He very much wants to write us right out of this country.
You can’t have it both ways. It just doesn’t work that way. If you love us. If you believe he is wrong. If you believe his position is extreme. Then you need to cast a vote for us.
I think we have earned your trust and your vote. So vote for Kerry in November. We will call it an early birthday gift if that will make you all feel better.
Just stop telling me you support us, and then telling/showing me you are gonna vote for someone that doesn’t. Your support rings hollow. It’s nothing more than lip service. If you really believe that we deserve equal rights under the law, stop telling us. Show us.
Don’t tell me you love me and then have a Bush for 2004 bumperstick on your car. Don’t tell me you love me but hate abortions. Don’t tell me you believe with all your heart that Dan and I should be protected, and then hide your ignorance behind the gun laws.
Don’t even try to convince me that we mean something to you when you are going to ignore us at the polls in favor of some bigot that doesn’t care. Actually that’s not right, he cares. He cares a great deal. He cares so much he is willing to risk everything on changing the constitution to ban my existence. He definitely cares.
Well so do I. So step up if you love us. Step up to the booth and cast your vote. You have no one to answer to but your conscience. We will never know for sure, but you will remember every time we bring it up after the amendment passes. Federally and in every state. We will know that not all of you had the strength of conviction to defend us when it mattered.
The guilt is yours. All yours. Pull up a chair and have a big plate full. I will pass, as I have done all I can to make this right. I can’t do anymore.
Guns, abortion, taxes, terrorism, flip-flops, patriotism, republicans, democrats, southerners, northerners, east coast, west coast, Iraq, WMD’s, liberals, conservatives, Nader…all those are intangibles. Concepts for debate. Ideas for discussion. You know Dan and I. We are real. We are your family. We are your friends. I would think something you can see as real (our relationship and our friendship) would be more worthy of your vote than something you only can talk about as an idea or a concept. We are real to you.
My birthday is in November and I will gladly accept your votes as gifts on the 2nd. Thanksgiving is a very busy time of the year you know.Powered by Sidelines
