FLORIDA BALLOT QUESTIONS / CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS

Currently seven issues representing Amendments to the Florida Constitution plus an advisory question, are scheduled for a vote on the November 2nd ballot.

There is a possibility that The Florida Legislature may convene in session this summer to entertain a prohibition banning oil drilling.

Three additional proposed Amendments had been removed as of the end of July 2010. They were: Florida Property Tax Limit, Amendment 3; Florida Redistricting, Amendment 7; and The Florida Health Care Freedom, Amendment 9, which was removed by court order on July 29.*(See below).


 

THE REMAINING ACTIVE BALLOT AMENDMENTS:

(I SUPPORT) AMENDMENT # 1. Repeal of public financing requirement dating to 1988 by which Florida's taxpayers subsidize the campaigns of candidates for statewide office. In 2006, this cost taxpaters $11.1 million with $3.3 million going to Charlie Cristís gubernatorial campaign.

(I SUPPORT) AMENDMENT # 2. Tax break for deployed military personnel. Under this Amendment, the Legislature will provide a homestead property tax reduction to military Floridians serving outside the U.S., depending on time served overseas.

(I OPPOSE) AMENDMENT # 4. Florida Hometown Democracy which would require voter approval of development proposals that impact local growth management plans. On its face it sounds like a good idea that "We The People" would get to vote on every local land-use variation to protect our resources. But this would require voter approval of all changes to local comprehensive land-use plans. The cost of these innumerable ballot questions over the smallest zoning changes would be incredibly expensive to taxpayers, generally confusingly worded; and the likely outcome would be to shut down local Florida economic development.

(I POTENTIALLY SUPPORT) AMENDMENTS # 5 and 6. "Redistricting to thwart partisan advantages." But it depends on the criteria that are developed by involved entities like FairDistrictsFlorida.org, to: "establish fairness standards for use in creating legislative and congressional district boundaries, while protecting minority voting rights." It is alleged that "The standards would prohibit drawing district lines to favor or disfavor any incumbent or political party. Districts would have to be compact and utilize existing political and geographical boundaries."

But letís see how this works out in practice before I give it my final blessing. If it just turns out to be a democrat swindle to "empower" minorities; then Iím against it. If it simply & fairly designates obvious "geographic" boundaries that reflect map-topography ... then I would probably remain in favor of the proposal.

(I SUPPORT) AMENDMENT # 8. Relaxation of class size requirements. Would relax existing school class size rules under the State Constitution. The new proposal increases the maximum number of students per class using a new calculation formula that would potentially save millions of dollars and allow class size flexibility.

(I SUPPORT) the Referendum on Deficit Spending. A requirement that the federal government balance its budget. This is a non-binding resolution that asks whether voters support a constitutional Amendment to make the Federal Government balance its budget. The Federal Congress, unlike Florida, can legally spend more money than it collects or has. At this point in time "Deficit Spending" has gotten so far out of line that our debt is about to exceed Gross Domestic Product for the first time since the 1940s! AMERICA IS BROKE, and about to go bankrupt. Our kids will never live to pay this debt off and dig our country out of the hole that our government has dug for posterity. We must support this resolution!

The non-binding resolution reads: "In order to stop the uncontrolled growth of our national debt and prevent excessive borrowing by the federal government, which threatens our economy and national security, should the United States Constitution be amended to require a balanced federal budget without raising taxes?"

PATRIOTS & FRIENDS: The answer is an emphatic "YES!"

_____________________________________

* FAILED AMENDMENT # 9 ~ Forced off the ballot by judicial fiat! (Thatís why we need to destroy the concept of "Judicial Supremacy ~ Read my Article on the left regarding "Marbury v. Madison.")

AMENDMENT # 9: Nullification of federal health-care law

This amendment would have prevented any government from requiring that individuals, employers or health-care providers participate in a particular health care program. The proposal specifically exempted Medicare and Medicaid and allowed patients to pay their health-care providers directly while avoiding "third-party" insurance.

Partly, the Amendment stated:

"(1) A law or rule shall not compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in any health care system

"(2) A person or employer may pay directly for lawful health care services and shall not be required to pay penalties or fines for paying directly for lawful health care services. A health care provider may accept direct payment for lawful health care services and shall not be required to pay penalties or fines for accepting direct payment from a person or employer for lawful health care services."

END
