Introduction & Proposition 1a: Understanding California's Ballot Propositions Introduction & Proposition 1a: High Speed Rail. Although overshadowed by the presidential race, Californians will be asked to vote on 12 propositions in November, 2008. These initiatives, placed on the ballot by either the California state legislature or by California citizens, represent critical state policy choices for Californian voters. Among these hotly contested issues are Proposition 8, which seeks to reverse the California Supreme Court's recent legalization of gay marriage, Proposition 4, which would require parental notification for any abortion performed on a minor, and Proposition 11, which would change the way in which California congressional and legislative district boundaries are drawn. Pepperdine University School of Public Policy Professor Michael Shires explains these complex issues in detail and answers questions regarding the initiatives on this fall's ballot.

Arizona Lawmakers Ballot Propositions 301 and 302 Amy Laff (StateBrief) discusses 2 upcoming measures on the November ballot. Among the items Arizona voters are being asked to decide in the Nov. 2 election are a couple of ballot measures, Proposition 301 and Proposition 302, that are the kinds of things that tend to get lost when the campaign volume gets cranked up. Passage of both measures was assumed by the Legislature to balance the state's budget. They, along with voters' approval May 18 to increase the state sales tax to 6.6 percent from 5.6 percent, are propositions put on the ballot by the Legislature. But unlike the sales tax, Propositions 301 and 302 do not ask voters to approve more taxes. Proposition 301 is straightforward and seeks to sweep $123.5 million from the state's "Growing ***" land conservation fund that was approved by voters in 1998. The money in the fund was earmarked to be used by governments as a dollar-for-dollar match with local money to buy up state trust land as open space. State lawmakers already have swept dozens of other funds -- as is known all too well by those who support, pay into and benefit from funds that were earmarked for such things as transportation, airports, parks and historic preservation, agriculture and utilities, just to name a few. The only difference is that the conservation fund has to be put to voters because it was originally approved by voters. The question Proposition 301 asks is whether this particular fund should continue to keep its privileged status ...

NBC Bay Area Editorial: Vote No on Propositions 16 and 17 And now, an NBC Bay Area Editorial... Special interests are again spending millions of dollars to buy your vote. I'm Suzanne Shaw (NBC Bay Area Editorial Director) Proposition 16 sounds good, the "Taxpayers Right to Vote Act" but it's a 36 million dollar smokescreen from PG&E, to crush the competition from cities, like Santa Clara, which offer residents electricity at 50% below PG&E rates. Prop 16 would force a paralyzing two-thirds vote before cities could offer an alternative to PG&E. We'd support a majority vote, but this helps the PG&E monopoly eliminate choice. Proposition 17, backed by Mercury Insurance, is a ploy to raise rates on your car insurance by allowing surcharges and penalties that are currently illegal. It will take away protections consumers have won. Don't be fooled by the marketing. Vote No on Propositions 16 and 17.
Tractatus Proposition 1 Part of multimedia project with computer artist Simon Poulter. Aim: to explore Wittgenstein's 7 basic propositions in sound and images. The music is improvised using the 7 basic diatonic scales (piano white notes only) or old 'church' modes, 7 prime numbers for rhythm (1/4, 3/4, 5/4, 7/4, 11/4, 13/4, 17/4) and 7 instrumental families (strings, woodwind, brass, keyboards, percussion, voice, noise) placed in a three-dimentional grid. The participant (live or on-line) manoeuvers randomly or not through the grid, and alters the music and images according to these choices, thus illustrating the arbitrariness of Wittgenstein's propositions, based on words that lose their definition, meaning, and use, when translated into any other language. And by allowing compounds (numbers, instruments, modes), the composer destroys any possibility that these propositions could ever be fixed. The start of anarchy?

Vote No on Proposition 8 VOTE NO ON PROPOSITION 8 ------------------- Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of the everyday routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of equality - whereby these important topics such as Proposition 8 are beaten and bludgeoned into ad hominems and straw men by outraged, fist-pounding social conservatives- I thought we could sit down and mark this November the fourth by taking some time out of our daily lives, and having a little chat. There are, of course, those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, messages of bigotry and hate are being shouted into telephones and republicans with skewed morality will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? I sympathize with you vapid, hateful dullards. I agree that your children shouldnt be obligated to accept reality. I understand that you hate your life and want everyone to be as miserable as you. And I pity the fact that you refuse to live in a world where people are different from you. Tolerance is important, you may spew from the corners of your reptilian mouths. Not as important, obviously, as ...

Initiative Inherently Flawed: Proposition Reform! WTF America? To me there is an inherent flaw in the initiative process. I do not believe that American voters do their "homework" and read the voter guide when it comes to propositions. It is unfortunate that many times propositions put laws on the books that do not necessarily reflect the views of the voters. For decades, propositions have been plagued by "bait and switch" tactics, which intentionally mislead voters into voting for laws that are not consistent with their beliefs. Sadly, this method is reasonably effective. It costs large amounts of money to educate voters to defeat misleading initiatives... after all, don't they make them all sound good in the brief synopsis on the ballot? So, what is the solution? Eliminating initiatives is out of the question. I absolutely believe in the right of people to puts laws on the books when the legislature fails to act. I also do not believe that we should limit who can vote. I am not sure there is an easy answer, but I do come up with one possible reform that could prevent so many misleading propositions from ending up on the ballot... but you will have to watch the video to find out what it is. OK, now for the links. This topic was inspired by the passage of Prop 8, an article I read recently in the paper about prop 13 (from 1978 in California) and a user named jwilliamson1987 who did a video titled "WTF America."

Yet even if we manage to squeak out a last minute victory (which seems at this point a tenuous hope at best) I know that in "liberal" Los Angeles county where I live, the vote was split 50% - 50%. As I write this it seems that there were only 20806 more votes for Prop 8 than against. So as I walk around today, one out of every two people I see DO NOT want me to have equal rights. They see me as inferior, because I'm gay. And that is so hurtful, and it makes me unbelievably mad. It makes me want to scream at them. Makes me want to try to hurt every one of the over 5160000 California voters for Prop 8 in a way that makes them ...
