Dear Mr. President,
I voted for you in 2000, believing that you’d restore honor and pride to our country. After eight years of a morally corrupt administration, I was ready for a change.
I supported you through the bitter days after the election. I was proud of your leadership after 9/11. And as we managed to anger country after country through our actions, I still stood behind you.
But now we’ve reached the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back. You want to amend the Constitution because YOU don’t want gays to marry.
My husband and I have been together for almost 10 years…married for almost 7. I remember how much we yearned to be together. And how our hearts thrilled once our relationship was made legal and valid in the eyes of the law. I’ve been following the weddings in San Francisco with great interest. And, Mr. President, I want to assure you this: the ‘sanctity’ of my marriage hasn’t been compromised at all as a result. Actually, it was nice to watch couples who have been together 2, 3, 4, even 5 times longer than my husband and I experience the thrill of finally being legitimate.
I wanted someone who would restore honor to our country, NOT someone who would alter the Constitution so that his beliefs become law. Mr. President, I will not be voting for you in November. I want our liberty back.
I’m going to polish this up a bit more…and email it to GWB, copying my senators and representative.
