Put pig people on the ballot, please
We voters need to get our hands dirty as we dig deep in the legislative process.
And when I say dirty, I mean if you accidentally mark your finger while you’re voting this November.
State lawmakers have started putting in their requests for issues that should be decided by state ballot.
Topics range from eliminating affirmative action to capping property tax increases to taking the governor out of the parole process.
But why stop there?
Lawmakers should include voters more intimately in the legislative process. Then we’d be able to see the real priorities at the Capitol.
For example, voters never had the chance to weigh in on a bill that allows pet owners to create trusts for their animals after the owners’ deaths.
Now people can just create pet trust funds willy-nilly, not requiring their pets to get real jobs and work for a living before inheriting a bunch of cash they wouldn’t be able to spend anyway because of a lack of opposable thumbs. It’s a cruel irony, Oklahoma.
