I have recieved an e-mail from our Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow. Stabenow opposes same-sex marriage and believes that the Michigan consitution should not be changed. It irritates me to see a democrat who opposes equality. While everyone has a right to their own opinion, she may as well call herself conservative. Help let Senator Stabenow know that Equality in Michigan is extremely vital to the GLBT community!
We living in a country built on life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, must respect the wishes of all people. The vitality of equal rights in Michigan is over whelming and often over looked by close minded politicians. While you may oppose same-sex marriage, we the people, want to see a change in Michigan. Legalizing same-sex marriage will put forth many positive variables in Michigan.
The average person who gets married in the United States spends thousands of dollars on their wedding. Allowing same-sex marriage could be a huge economic stimulator and help bring jobs to Michigan. Since Michigan is the state with the highest unemployment rate, you as a Senator have a duty to fulfill. Changing laws and passing legislation would include helping Michigan for the better.
Senator Stabenow, it is time that Michigan be looked at as an equal state. It is time that the people show their voice in equal rights. We need equal rights in Michigan and eventually will get equal rights in Michigan. Consider changing the Michigan constitution for the better in many ways. Outsiders will look at Michigan as an equal place to be, and know that they have rights just as any other person. Segregating same-sex couples from heterosexual couples has become an abomination. Not just for Michigan, but for the United States as a whole country built on the pursuit of happiness.
