As election day approaches, we find ourselves pummeled with ads for and against I-1183. These ads are riddled with sensationalism, misinformation, fear tactics, “facts” skewed and embellished by both the pros and the cons. Some of the purported “facts” are out and out lies.
Before you decide how to cast your vote, read I-1183 for yourself. Get the untainted facts. Don’t make the mistake of allowing one side or the other to buy your vote through millions of dollars of deceptive advertising.
I, for one, have done what I’ve suggested that you do herein.
Our state government is in extreme fiscal meltdown. There is no question about that. Rather than have my state government spending untold dollars leasing strip mall store space and paying the salaries and benefits for a thousand or so state “liquor clerks,” I’d like to see that money going to hire law enforcement, firefighters, emergency responders and teachers. When you have to dial 911, would you rather have a cop or paramedic show up or a state liquor clerk?
That’s just my studied opinion.
