Rinse, wash and repeat.
Gay rights is just a matter of time. Look at the polls. Worrying about gay marriage, let alone gay civil unions or gay employment rights, is a middle-age issue. Young people just can't see the problem. At worst, gays are going to win this one just by waiting until the opposition dies off.
Prosperous farmers mean more employment, more prosperity for the workers and the business men of every industrial area in the whole country.
