Equality for all.... by jack4john

Equality for all....

This month we vote on two changes to the Irish constitution. First to allow same sex marriage, the exact wording is "marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex" or as a confuse voter put it " why would I be voting on that, sure I have been having the same auld sex since I got married". The other change is to reduce the minimum age of a presidential candidate from 35 to 21.. this poster sums up the core of the debate on both for me ...Equality for all.....
I agree. Cool posters.

You nailed it!

Big smiles from me on both counts, and thank you for highlighting these issues with such humour.

Yes!

I agree on the marriage part, but a 21 year old presidential candidate is kind of scary, if you ask me ~ that's a huge reduction! ;)

@sitiodown The students union put forward the best point in favour of lowering the age. Why should they vote in something if they are barred from standing. Our president is different from yours , it is a ceremonial position , and as the students pointed out it is extreamly unlikely a 21 year old would even get a nomination to run, Thanks for the comment..Is there a min age in the USA...

@jack4john ~ okay, good point. And yes, here "in the USA, a person must be at least 35 to be President or Vice President, 30 to be a Senator, or 25 to be a Representative, as specified in the U.S. Constitution. Most states in the U.S. also have age requirements for the offices of Governor, State Senator, and State Representative."

Just to let you all know Ireland passed the same sex marriage equality bill by 62.7% -yes to 37.90%- no. The really good thing is that the turnout was 60.52% which is high for Ireland.

Yes, that made big news here in the states ~ and congrats to the people of Ireland for being the first country in the world to take such a step. :)
