Re:Proposition 2
Prop 2 seems to have good intentions but does not seem to offer a satisfactory solution. I was not able to find much support but many people believe it will pass due to the underlying principal of protecting people's rights. The problem seems to be that the potential aftermath of passing it does not match the intention and that we will be forced to deal with something that is difficult to understand and does not offer a comprehensive solution.
