Breaking Down the Michigan Ballot Proposals
If you do not have time to do your homework on these, I have laid my opinion of what I believe, as a Michigan Taxpayer, businesswoman, parent and conservative.
Prop 1 Yes– Emergency Managers are needed in Michigan after officials ruined the fiscal soundness of major cities.
Prop 2 No– Taxpayers should not be forced to subsidize public union greed, which represent the basis of why emergency managers have been utilized.
Prop 3 No– Ridiculous and insulting proposal by green corporations, trying to create an energy crisis.
Prop 4 No– Absolutely outrageous RINO and Liberal policy to force unionization upon those who care for their handicapped family members.
Prop 5 Yes– Raising taxes in our state should take a 2/3 majority in both the House and Senate. Enough said.
Prop 6 Yes– Absolutely. We must stop our RINO Governor from ignoring the checks to his power. Put the bridge to a vote.
The Michigan Ballot initiatives are about fiscal sanity in Michigan, forcing the 3% of those working for unions to not be able to bankrupt municipalities, stopping greedy green corporations from creating a Michigan Energy Crisis, stopping stealth unionization, making it tougher to raise our taxes, as well as checking the power of our rogue Governor. Every one of them is important, and it is important that we vote on every one.
Proposals 1, 2 and 4 are directly related because of the greed of unions and the power they wield. I am not against unions, I am against public unions from bankrupting cities forcing us to decide if they need emergency managers. It is my opinion that Governor Snyder could have been courageous like Governor Walker was with this issue, but since he wasn’t, it is to put to a vote. Should it be be inserted IN OUR CONSTITUTION that unions in Michigan continue to pilfer from the taxpayers? Not only are Proposals 2 and 4 offensive to those 97% of people in Michigan who do not belong to unions, the language in Proposal 2 prohibits Michigan from becoming a Right To Work State.
Proposal 3 basically is a condescending snub to your intelligence. It forces your utility company to offer 25% of electricity in renewables. Not only will they have to buy more electricity out of state, green initiatives cost a lot of money for little progress. Prop 3 isn’t just a no, it’s a Hell No.
Proposal 5 is self-explanatory. Do you want it to be easier or harder for Lansing to raise your taxes? Harder right? Vote Yes.
A Yes vote on Proposal 6 checks the power of the Governor by We The People. He has acted as a tyrant in regards to the International Bridge project, and must be slapped down in this vote.
I recently attended a presentation by Michael LaFaive of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, sponsored by the Cheboygan Tea Party. An excellent explanation of sound fiscal policy and warnings of the encroachment upon our civil liberties and loss of personal freedoms was given, and I’d like to thank the Mack Center, Michael LaFaive, and Stephenie from the Cheboygan Tea Party.
The following is a little blurb I asked Stephenie to put together to describe her great group. The presentation I attended was attended by 87 people, and the Mack Center is going all over the state giving these presentations.
Our tea party is nonpartisan. We do not endorse candidates, rather we focus on our three core values of constitutionally limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets. We try to follow the votes of our elected officials in these 3 areas and hold them accountable for their actions. We are focused on educating ourselves about our founding principles and our constitution. We also try through our functions, letters to the editor, and interactions with elected officials to defend principles of liberty wherever possible. I think that many people have forgotten what made America the greatest nation ever. It is up to us to remind them and show them all a free people can accomplish for themselves. We are growing and adding new members all the time. We are not going away. It’s probably enough to make Nancy Pelosi (or John Boehner) cry.
Ha! Thank God for the Tea Party people.

Mark Levin Gives Unvarnished Truth
MARK LEVIN: We conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny. Period. We will not negotiate the terms of our economic and political servitude. Period. We will not abandon our child to a dark and bleak future. We will not accept a fate that is alien to the legacy we inherited from every single future generation in this country. We will not accept social engineering by politicians and bureaucrats who treat us like lab rats, rather than self-sufficient human beings. There are those in this country who choose tyranny over liberty. They do not speak for us, 57 million of us who voted against this yesterday, and they do not get to dictate to us under our Constitution.
We are the alternative. We will resist. We're not going to surrender to this. We will not be passive, we will not be compliant in our demise. We're not good losers, you better believe we're sore losers! A good loser is a loser forever. Now I hear we're called 'purists.' Conservatives are called purists. The very people who keep nominating moderates, now call us purists the way the left calls us purists. Yeah, things like liberty, and property rights, individual sovereignty, and the Constitution, and capitalism. We're purists now. And we have to hear this crap from conservatives, or pseudo-conservatives, Republicans."It always amazes me the sheer number of women who defend abortion. Legal abortion has killed 52 million innocents since '73, that means 26 million roughly, were women. Sick." -Jen KuznickiAny woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country. -Margaret ThatcherEntrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States. -Ronald ReaganI am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end. -Margaret ThatcherBroadly speaking, the short words are the best, and the old words best of all. -Winston ChurchillCriticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things. -Winston Churchill
I Don’t Deny Global Warming ExistsI don't deny that global warming exists. It does not exist. There is not a pink elephant in my kitchen. I'm not denying it. It is not there. If I denied that there was a pink elephant in my kitchen, it would have to be there, but I would be lying to myself and everyone and walk around it to cook. But it is not there, therefore, I am not denying that it is.
Snyder said Wednesday that he unconditionally supports expanding the state's Medicaid rolls by roughly 470,000 people. There are 1.9 million people receiving benefits now.
"We're all here to support expanding Medicaid," Snyder said at a news conference called by a large coalition of groups that support the expansion. "We're moving forward with care for people who need it."
The ever-illogical argument that insuring more people will actually cost less. "But health care providers and advocates for the uninsured argue that the state will actually save money -- as much as $1 billion in the first decade -- if fewer residents have to rely on expensive emergency room facilities to address non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries."
Susan Dumass is really quite pedestrian. "The only thing standing in between 450,000 low-income Michiganders and health insurance is Tea Party Republicans' deep-seated hatred of Obamacare."
This week, Michigan’s Rick Snyder became the sixth GOP governor to propose expanding his state’s health insurance program to cover more low-income residents, in line with the Democratic administration’s strong recommendation.
Now that he's made the decision, Snyder must sell the plan to the state legislature, where some members of his own party have repeatedly attempted to distance themselves from the faintest whiff of "Obamacare."
- I can find neither solace or comfort in government. I cannot find hope nor light among those pretending to take my best interest to heart. I cannot worship or revere another human being because there are none alive that can instill my faith. Give me the One God; the One Who had created the heavens and earth and had purposefully breathed life into me. The One Who dwells in the secret place and watches over me and always keeps me company when all others abandoned me. But for Him I would have no purpose in this life; thank you Dear God.
