"Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities." ~Ayn Rand
I'm not usually into Ms. Rand, as she tends to be invoked fiercely by the conservative right... but I agree wholeheartedly with the above statement.
Really, Maine... if you wanted so desperately to be like California why couldn't you have just voted for social programs that you have no way to pay for? ;)
Rise up... do magic... share your anger, and your love... until equality is a reality, speak up... be visible, go against the grain.
And remember to have a good time doing it.
