2014 November New York State Ballot Proposals

Please everyone read and prepare for the New York State Ballot proposals.  Even though we in New York State have no direct initiative process and even more surprising, we seem to give almost no attention to our existing ballot proposal system, we still recommend that you read http://www.nyccfb.info/public/voter-guide/general-2014/ballot-proposals.aspx to understand the very weak democracy in action in New York State.  Please read and understand the ballot proposals BEFORE going in to the voting area.

I recommend that you discuss this with your peers and in groups and everywhere.

While you are at it, ask yourself "WHY does New York State NOT have a direct initiative process, similar to Switzerland and most US Western States?"
