The lucky voters of California get to vote on no less than 18 ballot measures. To help the good voter of California I will present my view of how you should vote.
Prop 1a - This Prop ensures that the State can't take money from local Government in the event of a budget crisis. As I plan to be working for a local government as a planner for the next few years, this measure should help keep me from being laid off due to lack of funds. The Chant recommends Yes.
Prop 60 - Minor Ballot tinkering. The Chant does not Care.
Prop 61 - Creates weird "Jungle" Primary with everybody on one ballot and no party registration to vote for people. Stupid. Makes primary kind of like general. Confusing. Makes a mess. The Chant recommends No
Prop 66 - Amends "3 Strikes" law. Violent felons only. No more 25 to life for stealing a bike. The Chant recommends Yes.
Prop 67 - Increase telephone fees to pay for more ER's. Not that I have anything against ER's I love George Clooney, but this is a really stupid way to pay for them. Telephone fees? You can't just tax [random activity] to pay for [random good thing] These things have to make sense. The Chant recommends No
Prop 68 and 70 - Indian Gaming. Got the feeling with both of these that someone is trying pull a fast one. This kind of thing should go to through the Governor and the State Legislators . If they screw it up we can just recall them. The Chant recommends No on both.
Prop 71 - Stem Cell Research. Could cure diseases. Stick it to Bush. Well worth spending your money on. Plus, California owns anything that gets discovered so if these stem cells cure cancer we can pay for more planners. The Chant recommends Yes
