Re: “Money talks in Orange County

Thank goodness that tax went down in flames. The last thing we need is another new tax. Nothing against schools, roads or parks, but there's no reason that the people who use those facilities should not fund them voluntarily. Involuntary taxation which ultimately exists on the basis of coercive force is theft, plain and simple.

Re: “Trial pits Greens, Libs against the state

According to the text of the ratified bill from the NC legislature website, the retention requirement was lowered from 10% to 2% in the version that was ratified. See: http://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2005/Bills/House/HTML/H88v7.html

Re: “Trial pits Greens, Libs against the state

Hmmm. Or maybe it's 2% for both, since the recent change. At any rate, they definitely lowered the retention threshold from 10% to 2% recently. I had thought that the initial signature requirement was 10%, but the number of required signatures would be a lot higher if that were the case.

Re: “Trial pits Greens, Libs against the state

I believe this article has the signature requirements numbers reversed. It's 10% to get on the ballot initially, and 2% to remain on the for following election cycle, unless I'm badly mistaken.
