Listen to Councilman Vazquez explain why he believes Republicans should oppose Proposition 8:
As a American I take pride in our system of checks and balances. That system was demonstrated in May 2008 when the Republican dominated Californian Supreme Court ruled on Gay Marriage with a 4-3 ruling declaring that the state Constitution protects a fundamental “right to marry” that extends equally to same-sex couples. I can’t believe that any American would support a Constitutional Amendment that is designed to “Eliminate” rights. Americans with great pride, conviction and resolve have fought to “protect rights” both here and on foreign soil. To support a Constitutional Amendment to “Eliminate” rights is an insult to every American Soldier that has fought to protect our rights and freedoms.
