16. Provided it (insert legislation here) can be linked to "raising taxes"...

southern GOP voters will vote for it,or in this case, against it every time...

And I do believe the folks promoting the "no" vote on this are somehow making a nebulous connection between its passage and tax increases? Huh? Go figure.....

To me, this amendment is akin to a state wide political exorcism of sorts for Alabama; its attempting to leave the last vestiges of institutional racism behind...however, alone in the voter both, the inner "Bull Conner" still lives in the hearts of many white-bread Bamans...and what is most upsetting, its still being perpetuated in those who never even lived during the scourge of segregation.
