Michigan Primary

My Michigan absentee ballot for the primary has arrived. Having been in the UK for a quarter century now (yes, I am indeed in Nigel Farage territory), I have no idea if anyone on the ballot is libertarian/constitutional-leaning or not. There are no third party candidates listed.

Any advice, O Mighty DPers?

Cheers in advance.

We will update the Michigan list with third party candidates

before the general. The focus was liberty Republicans before the primary. Washington state is coming tonight or tomorrow.

Some of the people here have been working on this thread

It has information on candidates from all the states. This might help.

Thank you so much

A brilliant list and idea.

+1000 for this list.

I checked the Michigan list - it looks good to me.

Still undecided about Prop 1. Business "Personal" Property Tax is a terrible tax and needs to die. I'm just not sure if this is the best way to kill it. If prop 1 passes, it will create a "local" authority to dole out the money that used to come from local property taxes on business (taxes on inventory and equipment within the building). Sounds good until you find out this new "locality" is the entire state!

So it's a "local" un-elected, state-wide authority who's charter could be changed by the next legislation. An analysis has been done here:

Let me know what you think.

I would vote against anything that creates a new government

entity for distributing stolen money. Michigan doesn't need an LCSA.

...needs all the help it can get; I used to live there.

Normally I wouldn't call to emburden the entire state for bailing out a city, but I feel more comfortable about that than seeking help from the feds... But I'm unsure, really.

Agreed, it needs help.

But I don't see how prop1 does anything to help.

The Authority is supposed to distribute Use Taxes to municipalities via a formula that mirrors current revenue.

The personal property of businesses left long ago due to high taxes. I read a report on all 50 states, and Detroit had the highest in the country! Source:

Getting rid of PPT is a good thing, but prop1 follows the trend of local governments giving up authority to larger central governments.

I feel sad whenever I go to Detroit (a few times/year) but I don't know how to fix it.

Mich C4L against prop 1

just an fyi
