If you were to follow the local newscasts or read the Star Tribune, you'd think nothing else matters in this election at the state level as much as the Marriage Amendment. Not taxes, not the proper role of government, not whether Mark Dayton's tax and spend agenda is a good idea, none of it. It's all about gay marriage -- it seems to be one of the lead stories just about every day.
I've talked about this topic before and I have nothing more to say about it. I just wish people would spend more time thinking about what's really going to affect their lives.
