There Is An Election Tuesday!

Be sure to vote. The big statewide initiatives are 98 and 99. 98 appears to be another sneaky “eminent domain” proposition that “limits government” (remember to substitute the phrase “We, the People” when you hear a conservative talk about government) and contains stealth measures with long-term implications. It also gets rid of rent control and their literature uses emotional examples exaggerated from some local situation. I think that if there is a local problem with an overly-restrictive ordinance then maybe local government (We, the People, locally) should deal with it instead of a heavy-handed state-wide law.
Here are two entertaining No on 98 videos.
