Oh, geez, I don't really have an opinion on most of this stuff. And of course the stuff I do have an opinion on, I could never hope to say anything interesting about.
For example, I understand that Prop 23 basically prevents cap and trade from going into effect... so no on Prop 23. Prop 19 legalizes marijuana under state law... so yes on 19. Wow, I will never persuade anyone on these and my opinions are basically worthless. Well, they're worth one vote I guess.
I think Prop 27 is pro-gerrymandering and prop 20 is anti-gerrymandering. I, uh, don't really understand the pros of gerrymandering. But, uh, several of the voters guides I'm looking at support 27 over 20, so maybe I don't really understand what's going on.
You'd think my skeptical knowledge would prepare me to sort through all this nonsense, but my feeling now is that it really doesn't. It's not like they're using complicated arguments or anything. It's just a bunch of one-step arguments that sound like bullshit. The rebuttals in the official voters guide can't even be bothered to mention the opposing arguments much less address them.
I have only understood a small fraction of the decisions here, and then my internet went out for a few hours. Clearly I am a terrible American with terrible internet service. Now it is Election Day already.
