OK, it’s starting to get close to Election Day. And as such, I figured now would be a good time to talk with you about how we’re voting. Here at The Liberal OC we have no “editorial board” deciding endorsements, so don’t take this as official endorsements from the entire blog team. I’m just speaking for myself when I make these endorsements:
President: Hillary Clinton
Prop 91: NO
Prop 92: YES
Prop 93: NO
Props 94-97: NO
OK, so why did I make these choices? First, let’s start with Hillary. You know, I’ve come to realize that we will need to change course seriously on foreign policy, climate change, health care, the economy, and so much more to repair the damage that George W. Bush has caused on this nation. That’s why I think it’s so important that we have a President who will be ready, willing, and able to make all these changes happen. That’s why I choose Hillary. In my view, she’s the one who can best work with us to make change happen and accomplish great things.
And now, here are my thoughts on the initiatives. Prop 91 is unnecessary, as Prop 1D already took care of transportation funding in 2006. Prop 92, on the other hand, is desperately needed to help keep community college as an affordable option for higher education. Prop 93 is supposed to fix our problems in Sacramento by changing term limits, but our problems will never be solved if we don’t enact real redistricting reform and tougher anti-corruption measures (and just get rid of term limits altogether)… That’s why I’m voting no on that. And while I wholeheartedly support tribal sovereignty, I also wholeheartedly support labor rights and a fair deal for all Native American tribes here… That’s why I can’t vote for Props 94-97 (the gaming compacts).
So do you agree with me? Go ahead and talk to me. What do you endorse?;-)
