Michigan Proposition 6 2012

Proposition 6 requires voters to approve any new bridge from the US to Canada. As far as I can tell, it is a laughable attempt by the owner of the current bridge from Detroit to Canada to maintain his monopoly. Of course, I lean toward NO on Proposition 6.

In a similar vein to my objection to Proposition 5, we elect representatives for a reason. If we want to move away from a representative democracy and try to make some form of direct democracy work, I am all for that! However, I do not think international bridge building has any reason to be the cornerstone on which we create this new form of government. If there were something wrong with the plans to build this new bridge specifically, I would be open to hearing them. But to require *all* future bridge building between Michigan and Canada to be put to popular vote, I'm not sure whether that is "solving" a problem that doesn't exist or actively going out and creating a problem.

So, I recommend NO on Proposition 6.

Thank you, but I'm afraid Blogger has more to do with the layout than I do.

I guess 2010 was when I started updating with any regularity, although I'm not sure I want to claim that I updated regularly this year...

I’d like to go to your weblog more often however recently it appears to be taking endlessly to
come up. I go to from work, and our connection there's pretty good. Do you think the issue could be on your end?
