Federal Marriage Amendment Assault on American Liberties
Sent to Senators Zell Miller and Max Cleland, and US Representative Saxby Chambliss on August 12, 2001.
August 12, 2001
Please accept this letter as an expression of my strong disapproval of the effort to change the US Constitution/Bill of Rights for the purpose of denying liberties and privileges to all American citizens.
If the leaders of this country want to preserve our liberties and ensure equal opportunities for all American citizens, they would loosen the restrictions currently in place. Rather than imposing unreasonable restrictions on our citizens, we should allow all people who unite for the strength in sharing responsibilities that has become necessary to make it in today's economy to receive the same benefits as those groups of citizens singled out to receive privilege and recognition.
Please do not support this move to tighten restrictions on couples and individuals, and especially do not support altering the Constitution for the purpose of denying American citizens any harmless means of succeeding in this land of unlimited opportunities.
