    PLEASE vote for people who will stop this gay "marriage" farce. Return our state to the people!

    @DCMN: I thought it had ALREADY been stopped by the Arkansas Supreme Court for now. In the end, it really doesn't matter what Judge Piazza said (other than soundbytes); it's what the Supreme Courts (Arkansas and probably U.S.) say. Neither Tim Cullen nor Robin Wynne (the two candidates for the *only* contested ASC seat this year) have said one way or the other about SSM (and per judicial canons they probably can't); you can't vote for the U.S. Supremes, and AFAIK neither of the two candidates on this year's ballots who possibly could (Mark Pryor & Tom Cotton) like SSM either. ;)

    Low voter turn out in the primaries???
    Thank God!
    I pray for the day no one turns out for a primary because everyone is independent.
    Screw the Republican and Democrat party bosses. Screw them all into oblivion.
