Vote “NO” on Proposition [Fill in the Blank]!
I have no idea what “propositions” or “resolutions” or “amendments” are added to your ballot in your jurisdiction. In Houston there are three propositions. One is to add some sort of “untouchable” fund for road improvements–which contains a myriad of hidden taxing possibilities for the future. One is to allow red light cameras to enforce red light laws. I voted NO for all propositions and encourage you to do the same. Here is my guide for when you should vote “no.”
1. When the Proposition/Resolution/Amendment Allows for MORE Government Intrusion Into Your Life.
If the item you are voting on adds more regulation, more oversight, added enforcement, a new government office, commission, committee, or office–then vote “No.” The Government is involved in our lives enough. Unless we want to start calling this Country the United Socialist States we must stop allowing these laws to get passed under the radar on the bottom of a ballot in an election. They are always worded so ridiculous also:
Vote For or Against the following: “To allow the government the ability to help all of its citizens, especially nuns, drowning babies and little baby owls, to better accomplish the American dream by creating a simple nondescript office of officials who would willingly lay down their lives for the betterment of the community and will require the simplest of forms and applications to obtain such help.”
2. When the Proposition/Resolution/Amendment Allows for the Creation of Some Fund or Account and Otherwise Erodes the Balance of Power or Checks and Balances Inherently Built Into Our Form of Government.
If the item you are voting for creates a new tax, a new fund, a new rainy day account, a new savings, a new set aside, or a deregulation of the government’s ability to generate such money by taking it from you or your business or your property—then vote “No.” If the Government needs more money, maybe it can get it by ending its hundreds of millions of dollars in subsidy to NPR or some other worthless social enterprise instead of taking it from us. Be aware of these provisions:
Vote For or Against the Following: “To amend the State Constitution which was drafted by conservatives back in the dark ages who could not foresee the unbelievable greed and irresponsibility of liberal politicians who, for decades, have been taking public money and funneling it into programs that were created for the ultimate goal of “purchasing” votes in future elections. The new amendment will allow your State to create a rainy day fund to set aside $1 gazillion from “current” funds to pay for such items as police, fireman, roads, bridges, and education. And it will allow the State to pull such money from existing tax dollars or, in the unlikely event it is necessary, add a new tax to ensure this fund never dries up.”
3. When the Proposition/Resolution/Amendment Adds a New Regulation to “Help” Us.
The last major category are those propositions that create a new law or regulation designed to help all of the poor idiots who cannot help themselves, otherwise known as the citizens of the United States. Do not vote for these:
Vote For or Against the Following: “A new law that will allow local and State and Government and World Government and Obama Secret Police to arrest or detain anyone that is doing anything stupid that they should otherwise not be doing. This law is all-inclusive and incorporates the following: eating sugary foods, driving late at night, screaming at a rude store clerk, smoking, watching horror movies, riding on an airplane when you have a cold, being offensive, having an opinion or simply disliking someone.”
Vote (for the love of humanity)–NO.
-But by all means–get out there and VOTE! Unless you’re a liberal, then feel free to cash your entitlement check and stay home for the day–you’ve earned it.
