I’m not quite back yet, but I felt like recording (and subsequently sharing) my position on the California propositions. I love confidentiality, but when it comes to what I think is right, I’m a firm believer in owning it. You read my writing all the time. And considering I write about moral and often political issues–well here’s some transparency where it matters.

*Under the guise of eliminating the money in the middle, this proposition only silences “special interest” contributions with little impact on influential corporate interests. Had the proposition eliminated only automatic paycheck deductions, my vote would have been YES.
**While in most circumstances I am against the death penalty, I believe it should be perserved for only the most heinous crimes.
If you live in California feel free to discuss the measures in the comments; if you don’t, you’re free to discuss the general issues or the presidential elections.
You do not have to share your vote or compromise your privacy.
You should not vote according to what I support.
Read the propositions thoroughly and vote. Or Susan B. Anthony will turn in her grave and such. And so will all the Muslim women before us to whom Islam restored the vote since the day of its Revelation.
