Proposition C opposition


  You may be right, it is kind of hard to say. I guess I just tend to
think of all the people paying $2 a word in the paid arguments going
into the same ballot book.

Brevity is not a bad thing. There is so much top read in those elction
booklets, that s/t sharp, to the point may stick in the reader's mind
and be
more effective than a longer piece.

  Everyone knows how reluctant I am to disagree with Marcy on
(just kidding!) 8) ... but I'm not so sure this is a good idea to
as it is. First of all, why so short, Jawg? You've got 300 words to
make an
argument, but you've only used 123 (plus name and title of course).
that space could be put to good use!

  Also, it's probably an unfortunate truth that if asked whether
has become better and less corrupt because of the creation of the
Commission, most SF voters would answer with a resounding "Yes!" So I
strongly suggest not making that particular point, as much sense as
it may
make from a libertarian perspective.

  Your effort is certainly appreciated, but If this is all we've got,
might be better off not making a bid to be the official opponent and
submitting a short paid argument, because I expect that other
opponents have more specific and hard-hitting critiques of
Proposition C,
and it would be a shame to deny the voters a chance to hear them.

Yours in liberty,

Great argument from Jawj.

Who watches the watchdogs? Will we soon need an Ethics
Commission for the
Ethics Commission?

Stripped of its window dressing, Proposition C is a measure to allow
Ethics Commission to set its own salaries.

This is the true genius of government at work. To take laws aimed
at producing open, honest government and turn them in an ethics
providing well-paid jobs for the boys.

Do you really think our government has become better and less
corrupt in
the years since the creation of the Ethics Commission? Or that a
specialized bureaucracy is needed to police laws that would
otherwise be
enforced by the existing administrative and judicial system, with
the help
of a vigilant press and public?
