Election 2010–The Final Countdown

Today is the last full day before voting starts tomorrow for the 2010 Elections.
The only thing I have done today is updated my endorsement lists of Senators, Governors, House races, and local races. If I have left ANYBODY out, please let me know and give me a reason to add that candidate.
Additionally, here are my decisions on the California Propositions.
For those of you in California who received a “Republican” mailer that is not specifically endorsed by anybody, it is a dirty trick. It endorses all the liberal positions. While this may or may not be legal, it is liberal gutlessness to not even say who is sending out a mailer and calling it Republican when it is nothing of the sort.
19–Legalize marijuana–NO NO NO NO NO! California has enough slackers and stoners. We should take high level drug dealers and shoot them in the town square. I am usually libertarian, but when it comes to drugs we should be like Singapore. No legalization now nor ever.
20–Redistricting–Yes. This takes redistricting out of the hands of legislators and gives it to a bipartisan commission, the only time such a commission is ever useful. Republicans may be tempted to vote no so that when they win they can control the system, but this is bout doing what is right for the people. Gerrymandering must end.
21–Tax cars for state parks. No. To all you bleeding hearts out there, taxes are too high. No, I do not want to abolish state parks. Find another way. No more car taxes.
22–Prohibits states from taking funds earmarked for transportation. Initial reaction, No. I will study this one further.
23–Suspend AB32 (Greeniac anti-business law) until unemployment drops to 5.5 % for a year. Yes. If you care more about trees than jobs and human beings, then move somewhere else. You are the reason California is in the toilet. Other states like Idaho can be pro-environment without crippling business.
24–Repeal law giving business tax breaks. No. We have destroyed this state from a business climate. We should be cutting their taxes, not raising them. Until every business leaves, liberals will remain clueless. Maybe if they owned businesses they would understand.
25–Reduce 2/3 majority to simple majority to pass budget. No. If Republicans were not able to block the worst of liberalism with 1/3 + 1, California would have died 20 years ago. I prefer gridlock to liberal budgets.
26–Require 2/3 votes to impose new fees. Yes. Liberals have trouble raising taxes, so they call them fees instead. It has to stop. There is nothing left to take. Liberals will be forced to learn how to grow an economy if it kills them.
