I think I’m likely to vote according to Chuck DeVore’s recommendations. The only one I’m vacillating on is Prop 19. His concerns are valid, but I also wonder if it could end up hurting the Mexican drug cartels, and thus helping us. The rest seem pretty obvious.
The always reliable Tom McClintock has published his ballot propositions recommendations. He just put me on the “no” side of Prop 19. They disagree on Prop 22, which leaves me in a quandary. I may have to invoke the “when in doubt, vote NO” rule. Or maybe the “when in doubt, go with McClintock” rule. This could be tough.
Updated (and bumped):
Still not positive about Prop 22. Am finding Chuck’s argument about it being a wolf in sheep’s clothing more persuasive, and that fits my “vote no” default as well.
Other California items:
Governor: Meg Whitman. Why? Because she’s not Jerry Brown.
Senator: Carly Fiorina. Why? Because she’s not Barbara Boxer.
Attorney General: Steve Cooley, probably. Just make sure Kamala Harris doesn’t get the job!
