Firstly, some additional information that has come to light since my last 'Rant' regarding Harold Ford, Jr: It has been reported that all, as in one hundred percent, of Bob Corker's campaign contributions have come from within the State of Tennessee, as it should be. Mr. Ford's money, on the other hand, has come primarily from New York and California with only around twenty percent coming from within Tennessee and most of that from Memphis.
Does this strike you as odd? It certainly does me. I am not making accusations, only asking much needed questions. I would wonder, if I were a Ford supporter (and I'm not), is Ol' Harold in somebody's pocket? Why would folks from New York and California be trying to buy an election in Tennessee? Maybe Mr. Ford has not fallen as far from the tree as he would like us to believe!
Secondly, the marriage amendment. This is not an amendment to change anything we already have. Vote "YES" if you want our Constitution to protect these already existing laws that say a legal marriage is between a man and a woman.
There have been reports of poll workers in certain areas of the state telling people the amendment is meant to change the present laws, and they should vote "NO" to keep things as they are. Kinda crummy, if you ask me. And illegal. But not surprising. These secular progressive folks will stop at nothing to further their agenda.
Thirdly, as I understand it, the marriage amendment must pass by a majority vote of the total number of votes cast for all candidates for governor. A plurality vote will not win passage. Example: If there are four million total votes cast for all eight gubernatorial (you don't suppose that's where the term 'goober' came from, do you?) candidates, then there must be at least two million and ONE votes to pass the amendment. Anything less and it fails. This is mighty important stuff, and the SP folks are very well organized in their effort to see this fail. Every vote is crucial!
