i was lazy yesterday, and i forgot to do another of my proposition picks. sometimes i don't know where the time goes.

prop. 43 is another post-florida-fiasco proposition. this one would amend the state constitution state that “a voter who casts a vote in an election in accordance with the laws of this state shall have that vote counted.” it's lawyer-bait. i'm voting no.

there's no specific 'vote yes' site. the vote no site is rather spartan. the la times says to vote yes.

prop. 44 is one of the reasons i loathe california's ballot initiatives—it's a piece of legislation that could have been handled by our elected representatives, but at some point the chiropractic act snuck it's way into the state constitution, so amending it requires the uneducated masses to do so. i have to agree with the la times here: vote no to provide the impetus to get this out of the state constitution. there's no websites specifically devoted to this measure. (which gives some indication of how silly it is, i think.)


i'm against voting since i'm operating under the idea that all politicians are corrupt. therefore, all the propositions they propose are corrupt.

just thought i'd throw that out there!! :)

i agree with Jim on this. you are indeed a fool. the less people get involved with politics the more freedom the politicians have to do what they want. and i think the way jim is researching the propositions and making an educated decision on them is exactly what every voter needs to do. as it stands most people vote on the shiniest candidate or vote with the best looking ads. kudos to jim.
