    Did not click the Make votes public option, this poll is private.

    The make votes public option displays all users who voted, and what choice they voted for.

    I have no idea of how you voted. If you want to let the world know how you voted, well, that's up to you.
    See?

    I voted yes but it sure seems to be of less and less value the older I get.

    My sister won a radio contest back in the seventies, she was only 13 at the time and not eligible, but Pops found a way to get that cash. Still don't know how.

    The point being, the prize was one thousand dollars, and the day she won we all acted like we had just secured our whole financial futures.

    Yes. You're saying if you choose gay then we might think differently of you.

    That was a lot of money back then. To put it in perspective, my brother bought a 1966 Volkswagen in 1970 for $600. He also won a college scholarship for $5000 two years later, which would have covered tuition for all four years at a state school. In 1975, I got braces on my upper teeth for $600.
