  •  the anti-amendment "people energy" (1+ / 0-)

    was amazing to be a part of; I have never felt/witnessed anything like it.
    Part of what energized me was that the GOP was elected on a platform of jobs, jobs, jobs-- but when they got into office all they did was shut down the government (costing the state millions) and put 2 cynical, mean-spirited initiatives on the next ballot: the gay marriage amendment, and voter ID. It made me angry that they were wasting time on such hurtful things.
    I'm still a little bitter that all that beautiful people energy had to be spent on stopping bad things instead of promoting good things-- but the fact that it was then channeled into forward momentum on marriage rights is currently outweighing the bitterness!
