If you do live in California, you may be aware of the fact that tomorrow, May 19th, we have a special election taking place. The primary purpose of this election is to vote on raising our taxes in order to fill in the yawning state budgetary chasm created by politicians enslaved to our state’s unions and our governor’s impotence to do anything to reign in their boundless influence and power.
So, instead of exhibiting the terminator like fortitude to hunt down and execute the prison guard and California teacher’s unions so that they will be forcibly removed from any and all political involvement within our state, we the people of California have been called upon to vote them more money to justify their existence. The last thing any power mad union needs is more money. Giving unions more money is like trying to stop an epidemic by driving the infected monkey to an airport.
For the last 3 months or so, we have been blitzed by their propaganda demanding we vote in their special election propositions. The grim sounding music with a deep voiced narrator earnestly predicting the certain lay offs of our teachers. The LA sheriff threatening to release criminals back into the streets. We either vote these propositions in or risk turning California into a lawless post-apocalyptic world in which children will be forced to attend charter schools and our cities will be turned into a cheesy John Carpenter movie.
There are 6 propositions we have to vote on, 1A – 1F. The key words and phrases to keep in mind as one surveys his or her’s voter’s guide information for these propositions is “state government,” “temporarily,” “borrows,” “redirects,” and “funds.” The word “temporarily” to a liberal politician in the state of California is like the word “millennium” to an amillennialist: a vague, undetermined amount of time. Could be a short while, perhaps a long while. In fact, come to think about it, the words “borrows” and “redirects” are also quite vague. The only word that is absolute and fixed is “funds.” Which literally means several billion dollars.
All of the first 5 propositions must be opposed and soundly defeated by voting NO. A radical dismantling of our state’s worthless leftist policies is the only thing that would be beneficial for us all and if the failure of these propositions brings such a destruction on them, that can only be a good thing. If shooting these propositions down will also loosen just a bit the mind control big unions have on our society, that too will be a hundred fold improvement.
The only proposition perhaps voting YES on is 1F, the proposition that prevents state politicians from voting themselves pay increases during a state financial emergency. That is at least a step in the right direction, but I think they need to be forced to live by the laws of every other citizen like paying income tax and driving normal cars. That’s just me.
