In Houston Proposition 1, known as HERO (Houston's Equal Rights Ordinance), which was claimed by the proponents that it would ensure that you can't discriminate against a person based on religion, race, disability, sexual identification or gender identity (our all-time favorite discriminations, you might say). Others said the proposition also would allow men dressed as women, including sexual predators, to enter women's restrooms. The Obama regime supported the proposition. The Houston voters disagreed with the Mayor of Houston and the Obama regime and defeated the proposition by a wide margin Tuesday, according to incomplete and unofficial returns. Houston apparently believes that men should use bathrooms designated men and women should have privacy in bathrooms designated women. Mayor and Obama, the people of Houston and I would say America say this seems to be very reasonable.
Ohio was weighing a series of ballot initiatives that could have paved the way to the legalization of recreational marijuana. The initiative would have permitted anyone 21 and older to hold up to an ounce of pot for personal use. With a $50 license, they could have housed eight ounces of harvested pot and four plants. The Ohio voters said no legalized pot in Ohio.
Perhaps this is a harbinger of what could happen in the election next November. Maybe American voters are ready to say it is time we elected an individual with veracity and character that actually believes in the constitution and the principles on which it was based; rule of law, limited government, divided government, and rule by the people. Hopefully the Republican candidates take notice and start to debate how we return to these principles as opposed to the rules of the debates and who sweats the most.
