At the DFL convention in Rochester on Sunday, the DFL officially voted to reject the Republicans’ Marriage Amendment that would formally place a form of discrimination against law abiding citizens into our State Constitution.
It is now an official stance for sample ballots and for DFL elected officials. For many of us, it was our official stance anyway, and this was simply an organization formality. What makes me a DFLer doesn’t have anything to do with big government and raising taxes, as my Republican friends and family think. Being a DFLer is about caring about people and our community, and the success of both. I am a DFLer to build a stronger state and stronger families.
Today, I received a link to a “vote no” video that I really liked. It isn’t an attack video filled with rhetoric, and it isn’t filled with scary music or huge red text of propaganda being stamped on the screen. It is a simple and thoughtful family, discussing how the amendment really affects families.
I hope you will spend the three minutes to watch it.
