I'm not from California, nor do I live there, so what those folks might want to do in their state is not of my concern. Just saying...states rights
and all that sort of thing. I looked at the link and saw no date on the article. Was it, in fact, published this day, April Fool's Day?
No write in candidates. My state, Kentucky has this provision, too. Although it's not just cut and dry like this supposed Prop 14. To have a write in
candidate be counted, there's some hoops the write in candidate must first jump through. Ron Paul did not jump, not sure why, in Kentucky for the
2008 POTUS elections. Hence my support for the Green Party candidate, just because she has bigger cajones than any of the male candidates that were on
I would not like to see the proposition passed in California, but, like I mentioned, it does not personally affect me. But it does seem unfair. This
reminds me of another shenanigan in, I think it was, New Jersey. The voters selected a democrat candidate in the primary election. later this guy was
found to be most likely a loser. So the party removed him from the ballot and put some other candidate in his place. That didn't seem right to me,
either, but, it wasn't my state, so their rules really don't concern me other than to say, gee, that sux.
Edit to add: Yeah, the article is probably a prank, but, hey, it concerns California. I lived there in the 1970's. Anything can happen there.
