Maine is apart of the liberal northeast corridor of states. Maine is the home of U.S Senator and liberal Republican Olympia Snows. Something happened in Maine last night that can't be explained away by liberal news commentators or liberals in general. Yesterday in Maine,voters went to the polls to vote on a bill that would repeal a law that would have allowed gays to marry
. Maine isn't a southern state. Evangelical Christians aren't a force in the state of Maine. Like I said before, Maine is a very liberal state. Gay Marriage in a liberal state like Maine should have been like the combination of peanut butter and jelly right? Things aren't what they always appear to be. The people of Maine in no uncertain words told their elected officials and the Governor that "Marriage is a union between one man and one woman". 53% of the residents voted in favor of supporting the state law to override the pending gay marriage bill and 47% voted against the bill. That is a 6% margin of victory. I love it how ABC News had to report it as a "narrow win" in their headline. This is a huge win for conservative values. The national polls show that more people identify themselves as conservative by a 2 to 1 margin over those who identify themselves as liberal
. This is an interesting fact about liberal states that have laws allowing gay marriage. All of those states that have gay marriage laws were passed through the courts or by the legislators
. None of them were passed, because they were on the ballots to allow the people to vote on. In the liberal state of California, Prop 8 was passed by the people which amended their constitution to define a marriage as being between a man and a woman. Liberal pundits are saying that because Chris Christie and Bob McDonnell didn't bring up social issues during their campaigns, it must mean that social conservatism is dead and that the GOP must get away from social issues if they want to win elections. The results from Maine says something completely different. Liberals are such idiots. The reason why Christy and McDonnell didn't make social issues the cornerstones of their campaign is obvious. The number one core issue that is on the minds of most Americans is economy. People have priorities in life, and job creation is their number one concern right now. So once again, liberals who claim to be the smartest people in the room come up looking stupid yet again. With the victory for traditional marriage in Maine, challenges by citizens supporting tradition marriage may not be so far off in other states that have passed laws legalizing it. The winner in Maine goes to Traditional Marriage under the umbrella of Social Conservatism.
