I had not realized that our official state horse's ass was behind these stupid votes as well. Not surprised. Please go away, Tim.

Accurate governance and opportunity for redress is never a waste of money, Rich.

For those interested, here’s an informative one page on tax advisory votes and their history: 19 instances of the legislature imposing, without a vote of the people, tax increases costing taxpayers $23.8 billion. 7 times voters were ok with the increases, 12 times the voters expressed their opposition. 35milliom votes cast on them, incredible public and voter participation:

The $30 car tabs people are on the same level of naïveté as the “no youth jail” crowd. The contracts have already been let, the money is allocated. Canceling projects now will just cost us more, with absolutely nothing to show for it.

@7: They give you Internet in jail?

Thank you Mr. Eyman.
But I don't think the state is salvageable.
