Beware Prop. 31: a wolf in sheep’s clothing

Russ Steele

I wrote about the dangers of Prop 31 HERE. This posted was linked to an LA Times article on Proposition 32 HERE. Now many of my words of cautions have been echoed by Katy Grimes in her Sept 21, 2012 CalWatchDog column, Beware Prop. 31: a wolf in sheep’s clothing

With all of the focus on the November ballot initiatives to raise taxes, Proposition 31 seems to have quietly avoided heavy scrutiny in the main stream media thus far. But this initiative is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, pretending to be much-needed reform.

There is growing confusion about ballot title and summaries on California’s ballot initiatives. It’s almost impossible to know how to vote on something. A “no” vote may mean “yes,” and visa versa, given the way the California Attorney General’s office plays fast and loose with writing the titles and summaries of ballot measures.

This is the case with Proposition 31 –what’s up is down, and what appears to be reform, is not. Equally disturbing is how so many of the state’s newspapers are jumping on board this phony “reform” measure. Even the California Republican Party officially endorsed Prop. 31.

However, most voters have grown suspicious  of anything claiming to offer “good government”  reforms.

You can read all of Katy’s column HERE. She points to the Agenda 21 connection which the lame stream press and some of our Supervisors are avoiding like a bad wine.

My colleague Wayne Lusvardi warned of this in “Proposition 31 would regionalize state revenue sharing“: ”Despite regionalization failing miserably in the European Union, California is proposing to adopt it as a tax-sharing policy for distributing state funds to local governments if voters approve Proposition 31 on the November ballot.”

Others warn that Prop. 31 adopts parts of the United Nation’s Agenda 21.

“It calls for the institutionalization of the UN Agenda 21 ’3 E’s’:

* Economy: Private/Public Partnerships and Project Labor Agreements will replace free markets;

* Equity: Social and Environmental Justice and the redistribution of wealth will be mandatory instead of Equal Justice;

* Environment: Climate Change, Species, Habitat and false science will be used as an excuse to regulate and control the citizens of California,” explained the Halfway to Concord blog.

“The ‘Super’ Council will measure the ‘Performance and Accountability’ of every government entity against the UN Agenda 21 3 E’s. The Council will have the ultimate power to make or stop a local jurisdiction from doing anything based on this proposition.”

My question is are we going to become UN Sheeple or are we going to stand up for our freedom. Ask your Supervisors where they stand on Prop 31. If they are voting yes on Prop 31 it time for them to find an new job.

    Russ, the California Chamber of Commerce came out FOR the Prop yesterday. I could not believe it. But since the state is mostly democrat maybe it is not that farfetched that the umbrella organization is for it.

    Russ, I believe that the BoS, in their 31aug12 guidance to Supe Beason attending an RCRC meeting, came out unanimously against Prop31. My KVMR commentary was on Prop31 and reported on the Supes meeting.

  3. Russ says:

    You are correct, however, Supervisor Beason made it clear that he did not think that Agenda 21 was involved and was no reason for not supporting Prop 31. I did not get a sense that the other Supervisors were fully attuned to the dangers of Agenda 21. We need to keep up the pressure. It is evident that with the CA Chamber of Commerce supporting Prop 31 the issue is not making the headlines. i would like to have some strong statements from our Supervisors repudiating any implementation of Agenda 21 in any form in Nevada County. I would like to see a news worth event before the election. People listen to and take their lead from the Supervisors. Now we damn well need them to lead on this issue.
