  1. That’s one big tab California? Hmm. 9 Bil? Hmm? Be wary of Proposition 10 very weary about it. Remember FREEDOM. What these power-loving world Kings are truly going after IS A WORLD THRONE. I do not approve of anything that allows a Federal Government “Authority”. Be very very careful when you even see that word — especially if its promulgated in the guise of a good like “Authority to Enact Rent Control on Residential Property.” Vote NO on that. You’ll be happy you did Yas gottta watch out for the wolf in sheep’s clothing sort of speak. Remember we must all think AUTHORITY and refrain from giving too much of that ESPECIALLY TO A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. NO ON PROP 10. There’s another one I just I didn’t like? Proposition 4 “Bonds Funding Construction at Children’s Health Care. LOOK INTO IT. ITS A GOOD THING IF IN FACT IT IS REAL. YOU MUST LOOK AT WHAT THE IS. I DOUBT VERY HIGHLY ITS FUNDS FOR CONSTRUCTION AT CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL, WAY TOO FEW OF THEM TO REQUIRE LAW, THUS THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE GOING ON WITH PROPOSITION 4. Another one similar to Proposition 4 would be Propositions 8. Why regulation? This is very serious guys, a lot can happen out of voting with stuff like this. Don’t let it get by yas. Lets see. “Regulates Amounts Outpatient Kidney Dialysis Clinics can charge. No absolutely not California, Understand law is something YOU WANT LESS OF NOT MORE OF — THE MORE LAW THE LESS FREEDOM. what I see pernicious in this is law is ceiling on healthcare — if they can control Kidneys, they can control other health care as well based on that vote. DO NOT IT. VOTE NO ON WHAT I SAID HERE. THEY ARE FREEDOM STEALING AND CAN ONLY PERMIT MORE FREEDOM STEALING. GOOD LUCK CALIFORNIA, NOVEMBER I’M GOING REPUBLICAN I AM WAY WAY TO FRIGHTENED OF HAVING FAKE DEMOCRATS.
