Oklahoma Gubernatorial Candidate Pledges to Support Freedom Agenda

Ernest Istook's responses: 1. If elected, will you support legislation similar, if not identical, to the TABOR Amendment proposed by State Question 726, the Stop Over Spending Imitative, which would limit government spending to what was spent the previous year adjusted for inflation and population growth?    YES 2.  If elected, will you support legislation that would allow parents greater influence over their children’s education via vouchers or education tax credits?    YES

Keep Texas On

Kerri Houston has a great article about the need for coal power plants in Texas. Here are a few excerpts: Take Texas, for example. Demographic studies predict a population increase of six million residents over the next ten years, and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas has issued a dire warning that without new power sources, capacity will drop below reliable levels in only two years. Exponential population growth, overdependence on oil and gas, and the aging of existing energy infrastructure is a guarantee of future shortages for Texas energy consumers. In an effort to avoid such predicted shortages, TXU -- the largest provider of Texas energy -- has joined many of the state's smaller providers in looking to increase capacity by diversifying sources and taking advantage of Texas' own natural resources. TXU has proposed spending $10B to build 11 new coal-generated energy plants on 9 existing sites, thus averting predicted shortages and making Texas less dependent on foreign sources. Most importantly, according to the Texas Environmental Research Consortium, the TXU coal generation technology will actually make Texas air cleaner. .... Although Texas already boasts some of the nation's cleanest emission rates, Dallas Mayor Laura Miller and Houston Mayor Bill White oppose the TXU plan, claiming it will harm air quality. Both mayors are associated with anti-growth energy policy and their opposition to energy expansion should be expected. Powered by junk science, political motivation and the lucrative fundraising that comes from instilling environmental panic in the citizenry, they have partnered with the usual BANANA (Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anyone) groups and a Houston trial lawyer who is a generous contributor to their own political parties. Although this is political business as usual, energy is now a matter of national security and the most significant factor to economic growth. The stakes are too high to eschew new clean-air technologies and the development of native coal as an energy source. You Can find the entire article below the fold.

Prop. 86 a Tax-the-Poor Scheme California Focus

BY MATT SCHUMSKY

If passed by the California electorate Nov. 7, Proposition 86 would almost quadruple the current tax on cigarettes to $3.47 a pack and would stand as perhaps the most ill-conceived tax increase of all time, although, to be fair, there's a lot of competition for that distinction. The "Tobacco Tax Act of 2006" is a creation of California's hospital industry, which wrote the initiative in such a way that it will receive about 40 percent of the $2.1 billion a year the higher tax is expected to generate. Whether that figure is realistic is a point we will get to a little later.

ELECTION 2006 ENDORSEMENTS EDITORIAL

BY Editorial

Under a banner of geographic diversity, backers of Measure 40 join a national parade to manipulate courts Oregon voters aren't the only ones being asked to restructure their courts this fall. Voters in at least four other states will decide on constitutional amendments to do the same. These ballot measures are part of a national movement to make judges easier to control and punish. Oregon's measure is one of the harder to stomach, because it comes under the false pretense of encouraging diversity.

For many voters, final decision a matter of trust

BY Matt Cooper and David Steves

One of the old saws about politicians goes like this: "Question: How do you know when a politician is lying?" "Answer: His lips are moving." Voter trust - or lack thereof - is a recurring backdrop for many local and state ballot measures in the Nov. 7 general election.

Spending-limit campaigns spend time, money on ballot battle

BY BRAD CAIN

A coalition representing unions, education boosters and business groups is launching a get-out-the-vote effort to persuade Oregonians to reject measures on the Nov. 7 ballot to limit state spending and reduce state income taxes. Organizers say the effort against the Measure 48 spending limit and the Measure 41 tax cut features activists going door-to-door and working phone banks, urging opposition to measures they say would damage state services and "move Oregon backward."
