I would like to propose an initiative to limit initiatives! What
gall of the do gooders in our town who feel it necessary to redesign
our town with a socio economic experiment! How about this? Let's
propose an initiative that limits others from attempting to limit
the right of others to work as legitimate merchants and operate
successful tax paying businesses. OH WAIT I just remembered!
That initiative was already done and by golly there were two
of them! One was signed in 1776 and is our Constitution! The
second is the Bill of Rights. These folks need to read them and
live by them.
Who would ever enforce such
a regulation as is being proposed here? Do we have a little man
on a tricycle to ride around town with a ticket book to fine
store owners who might have a higher than allowed amount of jewelry
in their shops? How about an initiative that limits the amount
of bread or shoes that can be sold?
