All the initiatives are awful this year – vote no over and over and over again
Don’t let the crazies take over the insane asylum.
All the initiatives are awful this year – vote NO over and over and over again when you get your ballot.
Here’s the online voters guide for more details on each one:
But here’s my take on each one:
* Initiative 1433 (minimum wage) — why not $50 per hour? Vote no because they were too stingy and didn’t make it higher! 🙂
* Initiative 1464 — forces taxpayers to pay for Seattle voters’ campaign contributions to candidates they support. Vote No because as Thomas Jefferson said: “To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves is sinful and tyrannical.”
* Initiative 1491 — Vote No because it’s simply the gun-grabbers latest salami slice of the 2nd Amendment.
* Initiative 1501 — prevents the Freedom Foundation from informing home-health care workers they don’t have to pay dues to the SEIU union machine if they don’t want to.
* Initiative 732 (carbon tax) — massive tax increase on everyone. If passed, within nanoseconds the legislature would re-raise the sales tax to where it was before. It’s just another tax grab.
* Initiative 735 (encourages the overturning of the Citizens United court ruling) — whatever.
* Proposition 1 (Sound Transit 3) on the ballot in Pierce, King, and Snohomish counties — $54 billion increase in sales taxes, property taxes, and car tab taxes. It’s truly insane. Vote No.
— END —
All these initiatives are from the Seattle crazies. What’s funny is that there are swaths of lefty voters who oppose some of these initiatives because the initiatives don’t go far enough! They don’t like ’em because they’re not even crazier! Hilarious.
Vote No (repeatedly) on this year’s batch of initiatives and let’s work hard next year on initiatives that actually protect taxpayers.
You can count on us to fight against next year’s tax-hiking insanity. The voters’ passage of our Initiative 1366 last year certainly shows that the people are in no mood for any tax hikes, let alone increases totaling $3.5 billion.
