Episode 61: WTF Is On The Ballot? (Part 2)

This week we dive into four more items on the ballot in November:img_1859

Amendment 71: Requirements for Constitutional Amendment

Amendment 72: Increase Cigarette and Tobacco Taxes

Proposition 106: Access to Medical Aid-in-Dying Medication

Amendment T: No Exception to Involuntary Servitude Prohibition

If you have received the Blue Book in the mail and thought to yourself “I want to be informed…but fuck this!” this episode is for you! We break down each ballot item, the pros and cons and the supporters one each side.

Elsewhere in the show, Darcie gives us a rundown on her latest bedside read; Authoritarianism and Polarization in American Politics, by Marc J. Hetherington and Jonathan D. Weiler. We also look at how Pepe the Frog became part of the alt-right movement (thanks to listener Troy DeRose for the great podcast recommendation that dives into the Pepe the Frog meme) and finally, we talk up the fifth presidential candidate, the indomitable, Vermin Supreme!
