    I truly appreciate your hard work on finding all this information! It makes it so much easier for us helping to spread what this amendment is really about! You’ve helped me prove that the facts that the other side is giving out are truly not the whole story! Thanks for that! 🙂

    Thanks for all your hard work in compiling all this information for those of us who are trying to spread the “truthful” word! I love shoving real facts in the face’s of those who are for this amendment!

    I wish I had seen your website before the vote came down. Thanks for this. I will be getting busy now helping to repeal the amendment.
