California Propositions Voting Guide

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 22:20

I’ll update and bump this post if I find anything that changes my mind, but I’m inclined to agree with the RLCC that the best course is to vote no on everything.

The sample ballot for the special election showed up the other day, and some of them “sound good” in the brief description, but I’m easily convinced that they are wolves in sheep’s clothing.


Funny how the commercials from the Howard Jarvis group used exactly that metaphor. As is often the case, all you need do is listen to who it is sponsoring the ad to know how to vote. The pro side is the teachers union. The con side is Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. And there’s nothing in the voter info pamphlet to convince me otherwise, so it’s final: Vote no on all of it.

One More Update, and bumped:

Tom McClintock has posted his recommendations, wherein he makes a tepid case for voting yes on 1D and 1E. I, frankly, don’t see it. But look at his arguments.

Polling Update:

This is good news.
