I'm quite happy with the outcome of my first election. Some things I voted for got passed, some things I voted for got dismissed. Some things I voted for were canceled out. Some things I voted against got passed.
I am really happy that Question 1 passed in Maine. I don't agree with Muslims or Buddhists but I do not believe it is the place of my government to be granting me rights for being Christian or restricting those who practise something else. I don't believe in Abortion but I don't think it is my place or the governments place to be restricting those who believe it is their only option.
Just because I'm not gay doesn't mean I don't think the government should darn well stay out of the practise of telling people how to live their lives. In this case silence is not a viable option. We needed Suffrage once. We needed affirmative action once. Right now, we need things like question one.
My friends Uncles just got engaged. They get to file taxes together now. They get power of attorney over each other. They get a voice.
