Insane US Ballot Initiatives – OpEd

By

Not too long ago in this country, no one in his right mind would suggest that it is a good idea to allow two men to get married, but today voters in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington will rule on this issue in one form or another.

Not too long ago in this country, no one in his right mind would suggest that it is a good idea to legalize the recreational use of cannabis, but today voters in Colorado, Oregon and Washington will decide whether they go along with the pot heads.

Not too long ago in this country, no one in his right mind would suggest that illegal aliens should have a right to in-state tuition rates at a state’s universities (while citizens who are here legally but are from another state are denied such a perk), but today voters in Maryland will decide this very issue.

Not too long ago in this country, no one in his right mind would suggest that doctors can legally kill their patients, but today voters in Massachusetts will decide the question of physician-assisted suicide.

And up until almost yesterday, no one in his right mind would suggest that voters need to decide whether adut film actors should have to wear condoms as a condition of employment, but today voters in Los Angeles County will render a judgment on this pressing matter. What makes this so interesting is that the Los Angeles Times has run an editorial opposing condom use for the adult film stars. Nice to know it endorses lethal sex acts.

As they say, people get the government they deserve.
