|Measure 1||Abortion||Declares in the state constitution that life begins at conception|
I will be voting yes on measure one. This is by far the most important measure on the ballot. This will define the laws already on the books to prevent radical liberal judges from overturning the will of the people.
|Measure 2||Taxes||Prevents the state from imposing mortgage, sales or transfer taxes on the mortgage or transfer of real property|
I will be voting yes on measure 2 because voting no leaves the door open for new taxes. We are taxed enough already!
|Measure 3||Education||Abolishes elected State Board of Higher Education and replaces it with appointed Commission of Higher Education|
I will vote yes on this measure because no means I am giving a thumbs up to writing blank checks to a system that has been poorly managed. Change is not always bad.
|Measure 4||Direct Democracy||Requires measures that have significant fiscal impacts on the state to be voted on at a general election|
This measure I will vote NO because I trust the people on fiscal issues more than politicians. My stance against 5 might make me vote yes on this but my faith in the people of North Dakota I believe they will vote it down.
|Measure 5||Taxes||Redirects some of the state's oil tax revenues to conservation efforts|
NO NO NO NO NO!!!! YOU NEVER VOTE YES TO GIVING THAT MUCH CASH WITH NO SPENDING PLAN TO RADICAL LEFTIST HUMAN HATING ANIMAL RIGHTS FREAKS! if you vote yes on this you are a damn fool.
|Measure 6||Divorce & Custody||
Creates a legal presumption that each parent is a fit parent and entitled to be awarded equal parental rights by a court
I will be voting YES on this. The days that mothers get everything in a divorce automatically need to be over. I hear women scream for equal rights but happily except the verdicts from judges in their favor for being women. Dads can raise kids also. Going to divorce court on a legal equal footing is true equality.
|Measure 7||Business||Removes requirement that majority ownership in a pharmacy be held by a registered pharmacist|
I will be voting yes on this measure. The current law picks winners by preventing everybody for taking part in the free market. I am a believer in the greatest system in the history of the world capitalism. I understand that many of the no people fear losing there livelihood but Im sure Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens will be looking for good pharmacist. 1 dollar generic meds will benefit North Dakota especially during flu season.
|Measure 8||Education||Mandates that school classes begin after Labor Day|
I will be voting YES on this measure. Its still cold when the kids get out of school and I would love to get a little more time with my kids in late summer vs late spring.
Well that's how I am voting on the North Dakota measures and I really hope you all join me in rocking the vote. VOTE YES ON 1!!!
