Remember, you don't have to be a Californian to take part in this fight to protect marriage. In fact, the more letters received from around the country, the stronger our voice!
Please send a letter directly to the Governor, or your local paper. Please stay engaged. We are still battling for the sanctity of marriage.

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger:
Perhaps you have forgotten what you stated in 2005 when you vetoed the two bills pertaining to gay marriage "out of respect for the will of the people". And also in 2005, you stated your position on legislative meddling with Proposition 22: "We cannot have a system where the people vote and the Legislature derails that vote. . . The will of the people should be upheld".
Well sir, "we the people" of California, the very people who voted for you, have not forgotten your statements, nor have we forgotten why we elected you into office in the first place: to serve the people, to uphold the will of the people.
In 2000, and now in 2008, we the people have voted in favor of traditional marriage. Our proposition 22 vote was overturned. Will our proposition 8 vote now be overturned also? Perhaps any future vote will be subject to overturn. Even a vote for you.
This is America, democracy at its finest. The people have spoken TWICE in favor of traditional marriage between only a man and a woman. Please respect and honor our vote, after all we are the people who voted for and elected you into office.
Your Name Here
