Gay Rights Victory
There were many little, but significant, victories for liberal folks to celebrate with this week's elections. One of these is Maine voter's choosing to uphold their state's gay-rights law. And, given recent recent political loses on this issue, this is important. We have been living through a period of time where so many moral and ethical issues have been put to the legal and political test - and many of these issues have been eroding toward a conservative end. Is the tide finally turning?

I too see this as a very positive victory for liberal folks, being from Maine this was a very important issue for me even though I am 17. It was nice to see a Christian based referendum shut down and I hope for more elections like this one to take place in Maine's future.
