Help get a Vermont Ad on the Air! ( SUCCESS ) Is trying to get an ad televised that would send a clear message and help send more clear messages to Governor Douglas who has announced cold heartedly to veto the same sex marriage bill S.115 should it come to his desk. Please, we urge you to help us get this ad on the air. Every little bit helps and the more hate we all can fight, the better we all are from providing this country with true equality!

The official page for this advertisement is the following link ( Click Here )

You can view this wonderful video above. I kind of wish it was more clear as to what it was for, as not everyone will understand. Make a contribution to help our effort today! ( Click Here )

Governor Douglas claims he will Veto S.115!

What I have feared has come, in a preemptive strike against the same sex marriage bill of Vermont S.115... The Governor has announced that he will veto the bill. His excuse for announcing so early, is he hopes it will reduce phone calls, letters and emails that have bogged down his office. But it is clear his intention was not this, but a means to announce his position in order to sway Representatives to vote against S.115.

This is the kind of tactic I'd expect from a politician who clearly is not really concerned about the economy as he claimed in the video, our rights for marriage are NOT a "distraction" for us, it means absolutely everything. As the Governor said in his statement, he does not want the legislature distracted by the same sex marriage bill, yet his claims to veto the bill will do just that, and will lead to further "distractions" as the state legislature will attempt to override his veto.

His personal views clearly do reflect his religion, and I'd really appreciate it that the Governor stops trying to dictate his way through this marriage bill, he is but one man and the support for this bill is great. I really hope the Governor changes his mind, religion should play no role in legal politics.

20 Senators as well as 100 representatives are required to veto a Governor's veto.

Please Contact Governor Douglas or the Vermont House of Representatives and urge them to vote for the same sex marriage bill!
