RightMi.Com editors weigh in on their favorite anti-prop 15-1 articles.
In fact, there was so much to be said that we had to create a special category for it, and all things leading up to, and related have been edited by Kevin to reflect their importance to the issue. While the traditional media sources play the equal opportunity game with both proponents and opponents of HR UU (proposal 15-1), it’s been our position to not do so. We have maintained that equal opportunity is already a function of those who would lie about its ‘advantages,’ and it needs no further promotion to make it one of the most dangerous options Michiganians have ever faced at the ballot box.
As we wrap up the arguments with only 2 days left before the polls close, RightMi.com editors thought it important to offer up a few ‘MUST READS!’ As you make a special trip to the polls for an election day that you wouldn’t have if the last legislative session would have done its job we have highlighted the most compelling. The editors have selected 5 or more articles from RightMi.com directly, and one other from anywhere else, traditional or otherwise.
Let the review begin!
Scales notes: “if one is looking for outside *professional* media who are honest about Prop 1, it’s slim pickings” Continuing with “The Record Eagle certainly does not hit it with sledgehammer I’d use, however, in today’s culture of Useful Idiots and pandering corporate *news*, they did take a decent stab at it with Editorial: Roads need money, but Proposal 1 badly flawed.”
10x25MM’s Top picks have an emphasis that recognizes (as he puts it) “the Proposal 1 conflict has been about exposing deceit and incompetence, reflected in my seven selections”:
His OFF-SITE choice? ’10x25MM’ says “We demonstrated to the liberty community how to engage in effective ‘leaderless resistance’ within a very hostile political environment. Think a lot of people have learned how to engage from the perimeter. This was the best outside example: Barbara Amble Does Amble on About Proposal One
Kevin Heine’s Onsite top five (He says “not easy, and in no particular order”):
With a couple of Honorable mentions making eight (in approximately chronological order):
His off-site choice? “Michigan Lame Duck Finale 2014” (Michigan Liberty Rising)
My own choices highlight a particular slant on the issue that has been one of watching the continued corruption in the process, and the expected failure that eventually arrives. But I also enjoy the messaging aspect of resistance to such corruption; particularly imagery. So I will start with the more recent post which exemplifies an appropriate in-your-face statement to Snyder and his SRY mess.
Nerd’s Bus Tour off to a Bumpy Start – A MUST SEE Graphic.
Presumptive Bureaucracy And Wagon Pi. My Disappointment with the SoS office failure to do its job cannot be overstated.
And a favorite set
A Picture paints a thousand words right?
Scales ‘sponsor’ laden bus imagery effectively renders a certain truth about the governor’s plan to tax Michigan’s workers into poverty.
As for my choice of an outside article? Eaton Rapids Joe’s blog has a pretty good post on the subject
Enjoy, and get your rear ends out there to STOP this boondoggle!
