I've been hearing lately that the Koch brothers just made a huge (like $3 million?) contribution supporting Prop 32. That's enough for me to vote No on it.Which brings us full-circle back to the beginning of the thread:Second thought is "holy crap how messed up is our system when our only two choices are between 1) the rich d-bags running the largest corporations who have half the ambitious self-serving politicians in their pockets and 2) the rich d-bags running the largest unions who have the other half of the ambitious self-serving politicians in their pockets?"Sucks that politics has become mostly a popularity contest of "who's got the stronger transitive property?" When people are voting for or against the d-bags rather than for or against the issues, it makes people who can't stand d-bags sad. But I guess, if money is fungible, then so is popularity, and so are votes. It's the system we've got, and we've got it, good and hard.JT
