would have voted against Question 6
am writing in regards to the Editorial in last week's Orient entitled
"Maine is not Vermont - unfortunately." This editorial, while very
well written (kudos to the author), brings forth some very controversial
statements about those who would vote against Question 6. While
I am not a Maine voter (I voted absentee in my home state), I would
have voted against Question 6. This is not because I am anti-homosexual.
It is not because I am bigoted. It is not because I am hateful.
It is most certainly not because I am a white male who is financially
comfortable. It is because I believe in the U.S. Constitution; that
document which we all (should) venerate as being the highest law
under which we live.

Author (font size 1)
week's opinion article by Edward Bair, in addition to many recent
comments around campus and in the media, expressed a desire to dismantle

space to offer a different perspective on the method of electing
the President of the United States.

vote matters, it is worth it
