Just like you, beleaguered television viewer with your eyes crossed at the incessant parade of political noise bom-barding your brain, we are so ready for this election cycle to be over.

No. 4: Yes
What’s confusing about this amendment initiative is that most of those coming out against it are the same folks who want to kill Washington (i.e., the Chamber of Commerce). It can be argued either way whether changes to comprehensive land-use agreements coming up for public referendum will clog the system (not likely), but we’re all for trying it out. Power to the people, right? Hear that, Tea Party?
No. 5 & No.6: Yes
We’re all for minority representation, but we’re not huge fans of the whole ends-justifying-means philosophy. Meaning that the gerrymandering – drawing legislative district boundaries around ethnically and ideologically homogenous blocs – has to stop.
No. 8: No
Supporters of this measure (including for-profit education companies), say money spent to keep class size in control would be better spent giving teachers pay raises; we don’t care how much you pay a teacher, it’s not going to make it easier to do the job if you overload the classroom with more students than one teacher can reasonably tend to.
