My recommendation on California's propositions:

Proposition 19: No — Marijuana legalization. Do you want second-hand smoke, more drunks on the road and will drug abuse grow? Will it cause lung cancer? They're telling people to stop smoking. Is this telling them that it's all right to smoke?

Proposition 20: Yes — Redistricting. Takes the redistricting away from the legislatures.

Proposition 21: No — Vehicle license fee hike. They're too high now.

Proposition 22: No — Redevelopment agencies Protection. Redevelopment agencies can use eminent domain to take property from one private owner and give it to another.

Proposition 23: Yes — Suspends California's greenhouse gas reduction law (AB 32). A no vote will cause Massive additional job losses with businesses moving out of state at a time when we do not need job losses. It will put AB 32 on hold until unemployment rate dips back below 5.5 percent for a year.

Proposition 24: No — Increases taxes by $2 billion on California businesses, small and large. We need to keep businesses and jobs here and not drive them out. No new taxes.

Proposition 25: No — It makes it easier to grow government and raise taxes if passed.

Proposition 26: Yes — It makes it harder to raise taxes by disguising them as fees.

Proposition 27: No — This proposition would give the power back to the legislators for redistricting. This means the lawmakers can draw their own district lines in 2011, so the politicians can chose the voters instead of the voters choosing the politicians. This would eliminate the independent State Commission on Redistricting.
