Vote like me

My endorsements and votes for the upcoming election are as follows:

Measure 39 - YES

Measure 40 - YES

Measure 41- YES

Measure 42 - NO

Measure 43 - YES

Measure 44 - NO

Measure 45 - NO

Measure 46 - NO

Measure 47 - NO

Measure 48 - YES

Governor - Ron Saxton

Supreme Court - Jack Roberts

Metro - Tom Cox

Judge District 1 - Ron Grensky

Judge District 2 - Debra Vogt

Judge District 16 - William Marshal

Judge District 18 - Don Haller

Judge District 20 - Charlie Bailey

I like my current Rep Jerry Krummel and soon to be Senator Larry George.

There aren't any R's in the house or senate that I really want to throw under the bus at this point (taking suggestions if you have any) so I'd say vote Republican in your district. Any statewide races that I left blank are done because I just don't have any good info one way or the other on the candidates, leave a message if you have something for us. (please provide a source link or some evidence) Some notables that I really like:

Kim Thatcher and Jared Thatcher come to mind. I'll also stress that Tom Cox for Metro is a very important vote as is Jack Roberts for the Supreme Court.

If you have any questions about why I am voting this way or how I arrived at my decisions feel free to leave a comment. If you have questions about a local race then leave the names and I'll see what I can find out. (stuff like county commissioners I can answer easily, mayor of timbuktoo I may not know the characters)

Your best friend when you aren't sure: see who the special interest groups support! If NARAL, the gun grabbers and the teachers union support a candidate then your can safely say that they are trouble.

Almost forgot! I'm voting NO on every bond measure I have. NO NO NO NO. I suport the police, I support the fire department but you know what, if the local governments would stop funding diversity councils, needle exchange programs and cultural centers then that money could go to public safety instead where it belongs. By giving them more of our earned money we give them an excuse to keep wasting the money that they take. Starve the beast.

keep your eye on "Resistance is futile!" for a good Supreme Court post in the next 24 hours.

I will do that!

I disagree on your stance on 46 and 47 for the same reason I advocate you accepting donations for your cause. I think these two measures will help promote legitimate "grass-root" politicians who's interest are more genuinly vested with those of the people.

Having said that, I'm interested in your reasoning behind your stance on them.

Oh, just ignore 2:05. It's just a ploy to kill discussion by flooding the comments section with useless crap.

On a serious note, what's the argument against 44 (Prescription Drugs)?

Anonymous said...

there were about 62 million Republicans (ok, some of them were independent, but you get the idea) who voted for GWB in 2004.

given a population of 62 million people, some of them will be pedophiles.

some priests are pedophiles. gee, I guess we need to go burn down churches.

some democrats are pedophiles. better keep them out of office because of pedophilia.

some men are pedophiles. better start whacking off all peckers.

some women are pedophiles. better start mandatory testosterone treatment.

some blacks are pedophiles. better lynch them.

some Jews are pedophiles. fire up the ovens.

see how rediculous this gets?

why not vote for candidates because of ISSUES and not outrageous stereotypes having no bearing on how any given politician is going to act?

oh, sorry, that makes too much sense. better toss me in with the blacks and jews.

Normally I'd agree with you about the police, but the last thing I need is the vato breaking into my house or cruising the neighborhood without fear of police patrols. I guess that's one area I am not willing to compromise. How many times have you posted lists of Hispanics at the Washington County Jail? If those people don't get picked up, they may just be free to cruise our neighborhood and commit crime. I'll vote yes on the Safety measure.

Daniel, Measure 42 passage only affects two groups of people: teens barrelling down the Interstate at Mach 1 in crappy tuner imports and illegal immigrants, which neither have worth credit scores. Needless to say, both are crimes anyway.

Mike Mayhem said...

I'm going to vote the exact opposite of you, that way your votes are completely countered. Thus, by extension, making them non-existent.

Mike Mayhem, that was hilarious!
I will also vote the exact opposite of Daniel, so your votes will be counted.
