What Is REALLY Happening?

Sigh. I am slogging through all of the candidates, propositions, and measures that we get to vote on. It really is so confusing, especially when they flat out tell you they don’t really know what the results will be. They don’t really have a clear idea of the impact some of the laws will have. I am reading and researching so I am just posting this to say I am doing that instead actually writing a blog post (although this IS a blog post). 🙂
As I am reading and trying to figure things out, it occurred to me that it seems as if the money really never goes to where they say it is going to go. If it did, then everything would have enough money, pretty much. The propositions, measures, laws, amendments, whatever they are called that you get to vote on . . . . they all say they will take care of the issue they are asking money for. They say that we need it because more money is needed so “this is the answer!” Many of the laws include provisions for inflation even. So, it seems like, if the money they are asking for and get really is the answer, if the money is being used properly, if the money is used as they say it is going to be used why do they keep asking for more money? Why are they amending, changing, or cancelling what we just voted on and/or asking for MORE money? What is really happening to the money?
