    We can all send a few dollars to help with the fight, even if we don't live in these states.

    My father once told me "the reason why unions do not invest in the education of its membership is because they believe that sooner or later the workers will learn firsthand just how bad business can be to the employees."

    It has been nearly thirty years since and the private sector employees have yet to come to terms with how badly they are being treated by corporate America.

    I, for one, see no value in sitting on the sidelines and letting nature take its course; too many perpetrators -elites - get away without ever having the proverbial hot-potato blow up in their face.

    NOM will also need help in New Jersey, Rhode Island, Hawaii, & Oregon. More battles to fight with a smaller donor pool.

    Where are Hawaii and New Jersey? Hawaii was the first state to consider this in 1993. Now thie issue has finally come back to them. It would be awful if exactly 20 years later they succeeded despite overwhelming opposition in 1998

    Mikhail: Hawaii is Democrat-controlled (Congress and Governorship). Nevertheless, more than half of the population is strongly against SSM. Democrats in the legislature passed the SSCivil union bill again, quickly after being vetoed by the Republican ex-governor Lingle, who recently lost the run for a US Senate seat - in part, because she believes in abortion (did not include abortion as a political issue in her candidacy).

    Republican candidates in Hawaii tend to ignore social values (afraid to be tagged as extremists), and therefore do not contrast themselves to the local Democrat candidates who are inept, but shake lots of hands and talk local jargon (or are of Japanese descent), making promises for Federal money they later cannot keep. The local people have strong racial biases.

    With Republicans focusing on the bad economy, they lose the advantage a focus on social values would give them.

    One of the few Republican Representatives even voted for the Civil Union bill, just before retiring, and small businesses have begun to get sued for supposed illegal discrimination. Starbucks wiped out a lot of family owned coffee shops, some of which used to be centers of local live music. Starbucks wiped out that tradition.

    As a prime Democrat State, where Obama claims to have been born, but cannot prove it (most anyone could, by Statute, register a child even without showing the child, and newspaper announcements would be published automatically).

    As in other Democrat States, Hawaii has one of the worst economies in the nation. The credit card debt per capita is or was the highest in the Nation.

    Hawaii is a parasite State, first as a way-overpriced tourist destination, and second: as previously recipient of about 1 billion a year of Federal Pork (giveaways from tax money paid by other States). In that way, it remains slightly Democrat.

    A study showed that if more people vote, the winning margin of Democrats would disappear. All Hawaii needs to do is to get more people to vote, and it would turn Republican. But locals are bored of political corruption, and most adults do not vote.

    Hawaii was Republican until a Democrat Mayor, and engineer, led the repair Oahu's civil infrastructure. After a few decades, subsequent County Mayors have ignored repair needs to the extent the County was fined heavily by the Feds, and the island now suffers one water main break about every day, or so. The State government bleeds emergency funds, and is constantly raising taxes on a host of commodities and property. Most worker Unions vote Democrat, so the economy isn't going anywhere but further down. Local property owners are wealthy and provide the only restraint to the power of most worker Unions. Some worker Unions vote republican, depending on the candidate. Republicans do not lose by a wide margin, and are doing better and better.

    It was 1998 that Hawaii amended its State Constitution, and soon thereafter passed a law defining marriage as between a man and a woman. Hawaii, as land of rainbows, is a principal target of the SSM advocates and lobbyists, but the locals are known for defending their traditions against Mainland takeovers.
