    US Senator - Jeff Merkley (D)
    US Representative, 3rd District - Michael Meo (G)
    Governor - Jason Levin (G)
    State Senator, 24th District - write-in, incumbent running unopposed
    State Representative, 47th District - write-in, incumbent running unopposed
    86 - NO
    87 - Yes
    88 - HELL NO
    89 - none
    90 - HELL NO
    91 - HELL NO
    92 - Yes
    26-159 (Portland Parks Bond) - Yes
    26-160 (Metro density prohibition w/ 16-year sunset clause) - NO

    Yes, the Master of Disaster recognizes the paradox of voting for a gubernatorial candidate who plans to take part in a legalized pot industry while voting against legalizing pot! I really hope people would realize all it would take is a president that would enforce federal drug laws over state laws and we could be living under martial law.

    Will be interesting to see if OR follows WA and CO with the pot issue. My expectation is they will. I have mentioned this before, but OR usually follows WA with almost all issues. The liquor privatization did not make the ballot, but I will bet OR will follow WA within 2-3 years.

    You can take this back all the way to the state lottery, and the change in license plates, which mirrored WA in the late 80's. However, OR refuses to add a state sales tax, so that remains an important division, though, I still say Oregon could gain a lot with a balanced sales/income tax mainly due to those hundreds of thousands who travel through. This is total lost revenue from travelers through the state. Add a moderate sales tax, and reduce the income tax, and I still say OR will come out ahead.

    The power to change things was in your hands and you tossed it! Just promise not to whine about your politicians then.

    The Democrats always win, no matter how bad they are. I came close to voting this time. I registered and got the ballots. Even Lars Larson said Governor John will win. I can go downtown tomorrow and ask for another ballot.

    Isn't there even one ballot measure you care about, Vern? You can leave every other candidate and measure blank and vote on only one issue if you want.
