Referend "Ums"

BY Marc Ambinder

In the 1990s, liberals worried that conservatives had hijacked the initiative and referenda processes in states; activists found ingenious ways to harness popular passions (and prejudices) and starve the beast of government at the local level. But a broad look at the I and R landscape for '06 suggests that the left is fighting back. Here are some questions that November's statewide elections might help answer:

Stand By Our Principles

BY Brendan Steinhauser

As the elections approach, conservatives need to remember what we stand for: lower taxes, less government and more freedom. Unfortunately, many politicians in Washington, Republicans and Democrats, are not legislating with these principles in mind.

Education Should Come Before Ideology, Politics

BY Max Pappas

From coast to coast, families, because of their ZIP code, have little choice but to send their children to the failing and sometimes dangerous government schools in their neighborhood. Those with the means to do so —like most members of Congress —can free their children from these failing schools. Those of more modest incomes are not as fortunate —unless, that is, they live in one of the increasing number of states allowing and encouraging school choice.

Nationalized Oil To Blame for High Gas Prices?

The Economist argues in Really Big Oil that national oil companies controlling 90% of the world’s reserves are to blame for high prices.  It has an interesting suggestion to those who do not like oil for various reasons; thank the national companies for their inefficiencies and for restricting world supply.

Opponents of Stop Overspending Afraid of Voters

Many opponents of TABOR laws, like the Stop Overspending ballot initiative in Nebraska, claim that it will starve necessary government programs.  If these programs are necessary, it should be easy to convince voters that they are necessary as well.  However, a lawsuit to strike the Nebraska Stop Overspending initiative from the ballot seems like a desperate attempt to prevent citizens from voting on spending limits.  It seems that that opponents of spending limits have no confidence that they can convince voters that their programs are so vital that they deserve increases at double the rate of inflation every year.  The same cannot be said of politicians and lobbyists.
