WA. has #3 on the books already, and #1 and 5 are hopefully in the bag.
I would love to see every state abolish the death Penalty...special Kudos here to Oregon's Governor Kitzhaber for
his admirable stand on this..

As to #4...let 'em try!
I never seem to get tired of saying how much in love i am with my state...don't hate :-)

"There is much attention being paid to four of these five initiatives. One is irrelevant. Hint: it is from the right"

This is from the Comments section of this article.

"Craig Hill (justme2050) wrote:
Let's put any distaste for the health care mandate to bed. Please sign the following pledge (Grover would be proud) and carry it with you at all times:

1) I agree to be 100% responsible for any and all of my present and future medical treatment.

2) I agree to revoke any interest in EMTALA as I believe in personal responsibility. I do not believe that others should be required to pay for my healthcare, nor do I believe those that have chosen to purchase health insurance should have to pay higher premiums because I am unable to pay for my own health care.

3) In exchange for a waiver from the requirement that I carry medical insurance according to ACA, I agree that I will be refused medical treatment, regardless of the cause or need, if I am unable to pay for services at the time they are incurred.

4) If in a coma or unable to respond to emergency responders at the scene of an accident, the following bank information may be accessed to instantly withdraw the funds necessary to pay for my treatment. If I do not have the required amount to pay for the treatment, I agree that I am to be left unattended, and let nature take its course."
Ha! pretty good. BMT

1] Same-sex Marriage; 2] Abolish death penalty 3] Assisted suicide 4] Repeal "Obamacare" 5] Legalize Marijuana.

Of course, these are in just a FEW States -- so, ya hafta read the article!
Same-sex Marriage Initiatives are in Washington {my State}, Maryland and Maine. Likely to PASS, also! A real TURNAROUND for Civil Rights, finally!!!!!
Not that Civil Rights are an issue that should EVER be decided by popular VOTE -- they are supposed to be GUARANTEED by the Constitution!
But, since the Right-wing Religious, Catholic, Mormon and Evangelical bigots have CHOSEN this arena -- they will finally at the end, be DEFEATED HERE, too!
{There is absolutely NO REASON to vote against Same-sex Marriage, that is NOT basically a "reason" originating in RELIGIOUS belief. There is NO "rational", scientific, or "natural" argument, or argument from pure Reason, that can possibly be made against Same-sex Marriage. An argument against, is ONLY a matter of pure SUPERSTITION, and nothing else. This is as stark black-and-white as it can be.}

Some may argue that there are many more important issues than either candidate is talking about. As to number 4, this is another case where people don't realize the hurt AHA or Obamacare will put on seniors after the elction (of course).


Did you notice who Obama Threatened?

It's incredible that 42% of Americans think that this unqualified, incompetent, dishonorable, ego-driven fraud is doing a good job. Take a moment. Admit it to yourself. You know who his supporters are. They are the people that YOU support.

>From now thru November 2012 this should be required weekly or at least monthly reading BY ALL WHO VOTE!!!

Did you notice who Obama threatened when he wasn't getting his way on raising the debt ceiling? He threatened to not pay:
- Social Security Retirees, Military Retirees, Social Security
Disability and Federal Retirees.-

- Now let this sink in really good -

- He did not threaten to stop payments to illegal aliens

- He did not threaten to take frivolous benefits such as Internet access away from violent inmates

- He did not offer to fire some of the thousands of unnecessary federal employees that he hired

- He did not offer to cut down on his or his wife's frivolous gallivanting around

- He did not threaten to not pay the senators and representatives or any of their staff

- He did not threaten to take benefits away from welfare recipients

- He did not threaten the food stamp programs

- He did not threaten to not pay foreign aid

- He did not threaten to cut back on anything that involves his base voters
- The list could go on and on. He is in full political re-election mode!

Why are we allowing this person to destroy this wonderful country with his selfishness and his lies? Have WE lost our blooming minds!!!!!!!!

His type of change is killing our country. He needs to be stopped and only our votes can stop him.

Do not forget about his tactics when it's election time. Vote Obama out of the Presidency in 2012.
