We have the initiative program here and it is a nightmare. The Courts regularly intervene and disallow duly voted and passed initiatives. Then too, the people who write them make them so arcane to read, that sometimes you have to vote no to actually vote yes or vice versa. Millions of dollars are spent on dueling propositions that are confusing and often partisan. The end result is always the same; more cost to taxpayers and more bureaucracy and regulation.
Only in California.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. ― Samuel Adams
