Cory, I really love that Booker clip.
He's absolutely right.

Guess I can't imbed. Here's what Cory Booker had to say about leaving the rights of the minority to be voted upon by the majority:

I looked at Project Vote Smart and was happy to find that all of my legislators (Connors, Ramos and Stack) supported the Act.

Do you know anything about what is being done to overcome the veto?  Are there legislators that seem more likely to change their votes that would be worth contacting?

So the bill passed both houses and it is now up to Governor Christie to either sign or veto it. Of course he will veto it. But please consider emailing him or posting on his facebook page (or both) your thoughts and tell him to sign the legislation! This is New Jersey, for crying out loud, and we should be on the forefront of human rights and promoting human dignity. It's worth a shot. His email page is a pain in the ass and you have to fill out all this silly stuff before leaving a message and there isn't even a category for "legislation" or "marriage equality". I put it under "economic development" and said (among other things) that marriage equality would create jobs and help Jersey's economy through all of the weddings etc. Add your own thoughts!

His email link:

His Facebook link:

His phone number:
609-292-6000

Thanks for your support! This is such a slow process to gain equal rights, but totally worth it.
