SORT BY Relevancy
MA is not CA, but this elwection at least, we get a plethora of ballot questions. In our case, the excess is four votes that qualified for Nov. 4th.
Tune in for truth and knowledge (at least in our best cuts).
Three questions have roaring proponents and opponents. Legally granting earned sick time for employees is not so controversial; in fact, doing that seems like enacting child-labor laws. The others are hot.
Question 1 is in the Taxachusetts fantasy world. It would stop the law that index gas taxes to inflation. The don't-tax-me-bro crowd really wants this.
Questino 2 would expand our low-rent nickel bottle depost to include non-carbonated water and such. The veberage folk predict the end of the world if that passes.
Question 3 would prohibit casinos in the commonwealth. The gaming (a.k.a gambl;ing) commission just awarded a license for one of three. The drama continues.
The airways are clogged. Mailers clutter doors and slots. Rhktoric is sizzling. You might not be surprised to learn that we have opinions.

California's ballot proposition process was meant to give the people more of a say in legislation, but the process has become entirely corrupted by money and special interests. Proposition language makes the proposals sound like good ideas, but like the legendary Trojan Horse, buried within the legalese are often provisions that have entirely different consequences. And lately, when a bad idea proposition is enacted in one state, thanks to organizations like ALEC, they tend to pop up on ballots all over the country.
Proposition 46 is billed as a patient safety act, by requiring physicians to undergo drug and alcohol testing. But there's more to it than that.

Political discussion from the progressive point of view by the MOMocrats. Produced by Engender Media Group.
In this episode, Dru discusses the use and misuse of the ballot box in America. The ballot box is a necessary part of the system to ensure the freedom of Americans. But, the question becomes, since Americans can actually vote out their own freedom, is the ballot box serving our needs properly? Issues regarding the abuse of the ballot box are raised as well. The Constitutional authority given to the People and the limitations put on Congress by the Constitution serve as a great protection from Administrative, Judicial and Congressional abuse maximizing the effectiveness of the process. However it takes the People to actually participate in the process to make it work.
We will be talking about the growing concerns over the Ebola outbreak that now has made it's way into the United States. ISIS has beheaded yet another prisoner and uploaded the video what is it going to take to get America "in the game" in combating this very real threat. In the second hour we will take a look at the purposed amendment to the Tennessee State Constitution that will be on the ballot in November.
Battle at the ballot box: your civil right and civic duty to vote.
In Hong Kong there are tens of thousands of protesters in the streets because their vote has been marginalized by state selection of candidates. Meanwhile, back in the US, citizens are fighting to exercise their civil right and civic duty to vote.

Ballot Access and the unconstitutional behavior of Democrats and Republicans
September 6th, 2014
Politics Done Right has a guest host today. I am sure you will enjoy our most opinionated Coffee Party leader. Bobby Rodrigo will get your thinking juices flowing.
Ballot Access and the unconstitutional behavior of Democrats and Republicans
Now that Labor Day has passed we are officially in Election Season. The Congressional Midterms and the various state elections are upon us. Yet independents and candidates from the Green Party, the Constitution Party and the Libertarian Party are battling to for ballot access. The Democrats in Illinois have eliminated the Green Party for the Ballot. The Democrat and Republicans have successfully eliminated any alternative party candidates and independents in New Jersey. Republicans in Illinois have successfully eliminated the Constitution Party in Illinois and they have sued Libertarian Party State Senate Candidate Gigi Bowman in New York to remove her from the ballot. The Green Party has sued in Illinois. All over the country the ballot access continues and the Democrats and the Republicans just don't want to let anyone else play in sandbox. Guest hosting on Politics Done is Bobby Rodrigo and he will have as one of his guests The Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Georgia Doug Craig to offer his expertise on the ballot access struggles faced by anyone who is not a Democrat or Republican. Please join us.
What are your thoughts? Let’s talk. I will also be following our hash-tag #PoliticsDoneRight on Twitter.
