The schizophrenia of my home state always amazes me.
I personally think our biggest ballot proposal wins were in Michigan over two union power grab attempts.
Proposal 2 would have allowed the union to negotiate our state constitution. Proposal 4 would have given the unions the constitutional power to force home care workers into a union against their will and seized dues.
Proposal 3 was a green energy proposal that would have forced us to erect thousands of windmills.
At the end of the night I got 4 wins, 1 loss, and 1 split decision on what I wanted from the ballot proposals here.
Windmills- too stupid even for Michigan

Yeah, and California voted to kill off or run off more small businesses.
Choosing higher taxes was not the usual route for CA voters but Brown's scare tactics worked; they'll feel foolish when things don't actually get any better. Love for union propaganda is standard, however.
i figured GMO labels had a shot but it wasn't really a big issue.
