Letter: Henry misses the mark on ballot propositions

Regarding the recent column by AGN Media Director of Commentary Dave Henry (Henry: Here’s a proposition - vote but skip part of the ballot, March 5, amarillo.com), I must take umbrage at Henry’s statements related to the propositions on the March 6 ballot, or at least the reasoning behind not voting for the propositions.


For instance, voting against the proposition saying that people should not be protected, etc., leaves the party, which advanced the idea, a chance to use it against the other party. It gives them the numbers (by voting “Yes” or “No”) to state the other party was outgunned, and this is the reason voters should support that party.

Look again. It is underhanded. I will vote for every issue, but realize I have to look into the reasons the proposition exists, and the way it was written.

You and I know that the power in a statement is from the way it is introduced and advanced to the public.
