Each election, California's favorite conservative makes recommendations on the spate of state ballot propositions. Tom McClintock's recommendations are as follows:
Prop30: NO. McClintock says higher taxes will hit "many small businesses filing under sub-chapter S, meaning lower wages, higher prices and fewer jobs."
Prop 31: NO. "The purpose of government is to provide basic services, not to pursue utopian four-year plans."
Prop 32: YES. "It's about time."
Prop 33: YES. "No-brainer."
Prop 34: NO. "This abolishes the death penalty for first-degree murder. Enough said."
Prop 35: YES. "On balance, though, the good outweighs the bad."
Prop 36: NO. "When it ain't broke, don't try and fix it."
Prop 37: NO. "This is the latest effort of the Nanny Left to tell us what to eat."
Prop 38: NO. "No doubt these dollars will be as well spent as the staggering fortune that we're already shoveling into the sclerotic school system."
Prop 39: NO. "Prop 39 might be bad news for California's employees, consumers, and investors, but it's great news for the Nevada Chamber of Commerce."
Prop 40: YES. "This is a monument to the stupidity of some Republican Party leaders..."
Here is his complete commentary.
