Democracy Battle In Florida

Please forward to anyone you know in Florida

For those of you on these lists that live in Florida, please be aware that Amendment 3 is an attempt to limit the voting public's ability to have any control of our state government! The amendment is being pushed by big business and is another step in the direction of removing our freedoms.

BY JOEL S. HIRSCHHORN:

ELECTIONS 101, 19 October 2006

Voters in Florida should not fall victim to the slick advertising by corporate and other special interests. Their aim is to pass Amendment 3. Why? Because the corporatist state wants to up the percent of votes required to pass citizen ballot initiatives that amend Florida's constitution, from the current simple majority requirement to a supermajority of 60 percent. If this tactic succeeds, Florida would be the only state requiring such a supermajority for ballot measures and initiatives, and corporate interests will work to do the same in other states. Citizen ballot measures and initiatives are one of the few ways Americans in some states have to make laws, circumventing their corrupt legislatures. In Florida, citizens have passed laws that corporations do not like. One amendment banned the use of large commercial gill nets that had been wiping out vast schools of game fish while indiscriminately killing other species, including turtles. Legislators serving commercial fishing interests had refused to take action. The supermarket chain Publix and the Florida Chamber of Commerce were angry about a 2004 amendment raising the minimum wage to $6.15 an hour -- something their lackeys in the legislature had refused to do. Legislators refused to ban smoking in restaurants and bars, so health care groups took their case to the people in 2002. And Floridians banned public smoking. Here are a sampling of the businesses and special interests fighting direct democracy: the National Association of Home Builders, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, the Florida Association of Realtors, U.S. Sugar, the St. Joe Co. [a huge land developer], Lykes Bros. Inc., the Florida Chamber of Commerce, Publix, the Florida Farm Bureau, the National Rifle Association, the Florida Institute of CPAs, and the Florida Education Association. //www.mytown.ca/ev.php?URL_ID=117062&URL_DO=DO_TOPIC&URL_SECTION=201
