HomoQuotable – David Mixner

“It is not enough just to vote for Obama/Biden but we must turn out our vote. Reflect on the the results of last Friday’s CNN Poll to have all the proof you need to get busy now. When all voters were polled, President Obama defeats good ole Mitt by 52% to 43%. That is a nine point huge victory. However, when just those ‘likely to vote’ were polled, the election becomes a toss-up with 49% to 47%. Every damn voter we get to the poll from our community is going to count.

“Every single person we can get to the polls will make a difference. No community, none, loses more than the LGBT community if the right-wing Tea Party Republicans become the dominant force in our American politics. LGBT Americans have died, been beaten and have paid terrible prices in order for us to get this close to full equality. What a shame if we honor their memory by not completing this battle.” – Former Clinton White House adviser David Mixner, writing on his personal blog.
