ALLIANCE FOR CITIZENS RIGHTS



CITIZENS of ALABAMA

Do you trust politicians?
Would you buy a pig in a poke?
Would you buy a used car without a test drive?
Would you give a stranger a signed blank check?

IF YOU ANSWERED YES TO ALL THE ABOVE THEN VOTE YES ON AMENDMENT I ON SEPTEMBER 9, 2003.

OTHERWISE VOTE NO!

YOUR ALABAMA LEGISLATORS ARE ASKING YOU TO VOTE YES ON A PACKAGE DEAL AND ARE NOT TELLING YOU WHAT'S IN THE PACKAGE. THE WORDING ON THE BALLOT TELLS YOU ONLY THE THINGS ABOUT THE AMENDMENT THEY THINK WILL INFLUENCE YOU TO VOTE YES. THE PACKAGE DEAL INCLUDES ROUGHLY 19 DIFFERENT BILLS THAT WILL MAKE MANY CHANGES YOU WILL PROBABLY NOT LIKE AND WILL GIVE THE POLITICIANS GREATER AUTHORITY OVER THE TAX LAWS.

SEVERAL ORGANIZATIONS AND WELL KNOWN PERSONALITIES HAVE COME OUT IN SUPPORT OF THIS PACKAGE. WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT KIND OF PRESSURE MAY HAVE BEEN APPLIED FOR THESE ENDORSEMENTS NOR WHETHER OR NOT PROMISES WERE MADE. MAYBE THEY DO TRUST POLITICIANS AND MAYBE THEY WOULD WRITE A BLANK CHECK TO A STRANGER. WE JUST THINK THOSE ARE BAD IDEAS.

WE BELIEVE THE VOTER SHOULD BE TOLD EXACTLY WHAT HE OR SHE IS BEING ASKED TO VOTE ON AND SHOULD BE GIVEN THE CHANCE TO VOTE ON EACH ISSUE OF THE PACKAGE. FOR ALL WE KNOW THERE MAY BE SPECIAL PERKS FOR THE LEGISLATORS WRAPPED UP INSIDE THE PACKAGE AND TIED WITH THE PRETTY RED, WHITE AND BLUE RIBBON OF PATRIOTISM AND CARING FOR THE CHILDREN.

THE BEST ADVICE WE CAN GIVE IS: IF YOU DON'T TRULY KNOW WHAT YOU ARE VOTING FOR -- VOTE NO!
