    Vote early, vote often!

    Anonymizer helps make sure all of your votes count!

    Ha!! A few hours ago before this thread started, I had already voted. At the time it was 20/80 (80% thought the decision was wrong). Now it's 45/47.5. Keep up the votes!!

    Just put it on Reddit. With just a tiny bit of luck someone will write a script to make wing nut heads explode.

    Edit: Apparently a fellow redditor's script is running to make c. 12k 'yes' votes every minute. No idea if the dark side is using something similar.

    just voted, tied at 46.4% with over 98,000 voters. Not bad for a Fox News Poll. Maybe more people will begin to realize that government is not the answer. The decision to marry a gay couple should be made by the church, the private sector, NOT THE GOVERNMENT. KEEP THE GOVERNMENT OUT OF MARRIAGE AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

    47%!

    Just keep the damn church out of my life! I don't care if the church wants to marry me or not. Just give me the same legal rights as a legally married heterosexual couple.

    Even the religious right of FOX news want us to marry each other. icon_biggrin.gificon_lol.gif
    What excuse is there for not making gay marriage legal?

    Part of me almost wants them to have the poll..I mean the no option flat out says "I dont care what the constitution says"

    That would be the anti-fox news talking point of the century.

    "Fox news viewers don't care about the constitution!"

    I just had a look. So if you guys where not manipulating this. You do know what the truth would be. Still most Americans feel marrage is a heterosexual institution, and I agree with them, it is, as it's roots are steeped in religion. Not that I have issues with two men committing to each other, gosh I've been in a relationship for 20 years, but we have never considered marriage, we don't see the point, as it changes nothing. Nor do we seek benefits attached to our relationship.

    But I 100% support the concept of civil unions. Not that I myself would ever partake.

    Funny, I don't see anything in this thread that asks "What do you think, Pattison?".

    Verbal diarrhea, patticakes?

    I'm so glad I never blocked you back when I first arrived in these forums, thought it did cross my mind. It's kinda fun to read a bunch of stupid uneducated self-loathing bullshit every once in a while to offset the intelligent discussion that normally takes place. icon_biggrin.gif

    Well that was educational, something I haven't tried on this latest Safari browser version, to permit casting multiple votes. I knew that it's usually a cookie that a voting site downloads to your computer, to prevent multiple votes on a given issue, or for a designated period of time.

    So first I found the cookies window under Preferences>Security>Show Cookies. Then I typed in foxnews in the cookies search window, which hid the hundreds of other cookies and only left those from FOX News showing.

    Next I hit the Remove All button, which deleted all the FOX cookies, but didn't touch any other cookies. I don't have the FOX site set for my weather or local news, so I didn't need any of its cookies at all. The cookies window was now blank. I left everything as it was, and moved the open window aside.

    Now I went back to metta8's link, opened FOX News, and voted again in the poll. It was accepted. I also saw a bunch of cookies load in the cookies window.

    Now I had 2 choices: either hit Remove All again, or highlight just the Poll cookie for individual removal. It's got PD_poll_ in its name, BTW. I just hit Remove All for simplicity.

    Then back to the FOX poll, click Return to Poll, and vote again. Hit Remove All cookies, click on Return to Poll, vote again, repeat as many times as I want. Once you've got it set up the routine is really quite fast & easy. No special software needed.
