Ballot Proposals in 08?

Wednesday, June 13, 2007 3 comments

There are many proposals that people are trying to get onto the 2008 ballot. Some have a chance and others are a long shot. Here are a few with my opinion.

- Part-Time Legislature (Has momentum since people are frustrated. I like the idea if they tie in a pay decrease and extend term limits.)

- Fair Tax (Long shot, but I like the idea)

- Right to Work (Longer shot in this union state, but I really like the idea)

- Graduated Income Tax (Long shot, people voting to support giving their money to government... I don't think so.)

- Medical Marijuana (No way. These stupid hippies try the medical angle every year so they can smoke pot legally.)

What are your thoughts? Or is there one I did not mention.

    I'm a huge fan of the Fair Tax. With this country being as materialistic as we are, I imagine it would bring in more revenue. Besides that, each person would end up paying as much tax money as he chooses. No one could complain. (but they would.)

    I don't know anything about the Graduated Income Tax. Any more info on it?

    The graduated income tax is pretty much punishing success. It will tax people more by income levels. Right now we have a flat tax system. The LSJ had an article that said 61% support the graduated income tax. http://www.lsj.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070615/NEWS04/706150351

    Part Time legislature - yah right, that wouldnt work, its taken 6 months for a budget..
    Fair tax - yes.
    Right to work - we need this. Dems would lose a lot of power if unions were by choice.
    Graduated income tax - meh
    Medical Marijuana - heck yes. God made it, said, "It is good." besides, its silly to put marijuana in the same catagory as cocaine, heroine, meth and extasy. Not to mention it should be a freedom governed by the state, not fed. gov. It should be a persons right to use, if they want.
