You can vote away our rights by almost 20%, but you'll never get rid of us.

We'll be right there shopping next to you at Food Lion.

We'll be right there pumping gas next to you at the Shell.

We'll be right there ordering pizza next to you at the local pizza joint.

We'll be right there at a stop sign, waving at you to go ahead and go.

We'll be right there teaching your children in public school.

We'll be right there pouring your ridiculous damn drink at Starbucks.

We'll be right there putting out your house fire or giving you a heart bypass.

We'll be right there helping you even though you're too cowardly to care.

You can vote us down, but we'll never go away.

Get over it, bigots. You're throwing toothpicks at a boulder rolling down a mountain.

We'll always be here.

Think Progress:

FACT: The last time North Carolina amended their constitution on marriage it was to ban interracial marriage.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
