The specific initiative that's making me mad right now is 912. They want to cancel the planned gas tax increases and repeal the one that's been implemented. Fine, they want to cut taxes and I can respect that. But the way the initiative is written, it only applies to unleaded gas. Diesel will still be taxed in the progressive manner planned. This pisses me right the fuck off. I have a diesel car because I like the gas mileage. I planned for the eventual rise in gas prices by buying a car that gets good gas mileage so therefore I must be penalized by paying higher gas tax. What about people that are moving? They rent U-Hauls and have to pay the higher taxes. And what about the cost increase that trickles down due to increased shipping costs?
So screw them. Those people who bought expensive gas-guzzling beasts of cars can pay the gas tax too. Selfish bastards. You don't get to ruin the environment and then get a tax break because you're an idiot.
