State Question Guide - Share With Your Friends


Here is my take on the upcoming state questions, how I plan to vote and since I am such a cult of personality, you'll very likely do whatever I say...


SQ744 - EDUMACATION FUNDING
Hayl No. This "regional average" line of crap they are feeding us is just that - crap. The teacher's unions and bureaucrats use an intellectually dishonest formula that does not include even the most simplistic of measurements...cost of living indexes.

SQ746 - VOTER PHOTO ID
Hayl Yes. While I think it would be more important to have poll workers who aren't busy watching reruns of Matlock, having photo identification for voters is important.

SQ747 - TERM LIMITS
Hayl Yes. This will term-limit statewide elected officials from serving more than two four-year terms (total of eight years). Unfortunately, this doesn't go far enough. We need to limit terms for offices that include PRIOR service as an elected official.

SQ748 - REDISTRICTING
Hayl Yes. Increases the redistricting commission members from three to seven. We need more accountability, this is one way to get it.

SQ750 - BALLOT ACCESS
Hayl Yes. I am all about the First Amendment to the Constitution and this question protects our right to petition the government. I like it a lot.

SQ751 - OFFICIAL LANGUAGE...ENGLISH, PLEASE
Hayl Yes. While we may still be stuck "pressing 1 for English," state agencies will no longer be required to print documents in Swahili.

SQ752 - HERE COME DA JUDGE COMMISSION
Yep. Increases the number of members of the Judge's Commission to 15 members.

SQ754 - APPROPRIATIONS
Hayl No. If this passes, the legislature would not be required to use predetermined formulas to set agency budgets. It would end up being a free-for-all with your tax dollars and we just can't give Ken Miller that kind of power.

SQ755 - SHARIAH LAW
Yes, yes, yes. This is that state question everyone on the Right is talking about...forbidding state courts from considering or using international law or even Shariah Law (scary Muslim stuff) when deciding cases. We prefer the Constitution, thank you.

SQ756 - Obamacare No-Go
Hayl Yes. We don't need no stinkin' Obamacare.

SQ757 - RAINY DAY MONEY
No, no, no. Increases the Rainy Day from from 10% to 15% of the general budget. Look, our state government has already proven that the Rainy Day Fund is not being used for emergencies like FLOODING, why give them more money to jack with? VOTE NO on this pile of waste disguised as a state question.
