Be sure to perouse this linkie:

It has arguments for and against each ballot measure. This is IMPORTANT! For instance, let's say you want to churn the courts and throw the bums out through term limits imposed by Amendment 40.

OK, fair enough. But beginning in 2009, whoever is governor gets to appoint a supermajority in the Supreme and Appellate courts of the state, because it so happens that the existing judges will run out of term at the same time. The same thing happens ten years later, too.

Did you mean to vote for that unintended consequence? I guess it depends on who you hope will be governor during those times...

So do your homework, boys and girls, and vote intelligently. Don't make me sneak over to your place and let the air out of your tires for not voting, now...
