What is the Proposition Song in California about?



  1. 0 Votes


    The Proposition Song is about the nine propositions that were on the November 2 ballot.  It’s a fun (?) way to try and keep up with all the items on the ballot.  It was written by the president of the California Voter Foundation, Kim Alexander.  Here are the lyrics … if you want to sing along.


    Oh we’re having an election,

    November two’s the day

    There are nine state propositions

    Come vote and have your say.

    Prop. 19’s the first measure, it asks voters if we oughta

    Regulate, tax and legalize marijuana

    Each ten years congressional district lines get redrawn

    Prop 20 says that job should go to a citizen commission.

    Prop 21 would fund state parks with automobile fees

    Prop 22 curbs state access to local government proceeds

    It’s the Proposition Song!

    Let’s all be singing along!

    Cuz the ballot is too darn long.

    Twenty-three suspends a law called “AB 32”

    that seeks to slow down climate change and restricts what polluters do.

    If voters pass Prop. 23, 32 it would prevent

    From being law ‘til unemployment’s at 5.5 percent.

    The next prop also seeks to keep a law from taking effect,

    24 would halt newly enacted corporate tax credits.

    There are just a few more measures, to sing of in this song

    So hang on friends, we’re near the end

    Of this proposition song.

    You should all be singing along.

    Cuz the ballot is too darn long.

    Passing the state budget takes a two-thirds vote currently

    Prop 25 would change it to a straight majority.

    26 is also ‘bout vote margins, switching up the words

    Instead of majorities to pass new fees, the vote would be two-thirds.

    27’s yet another prop ‘bout political district lines

    If it’s passed, the job goes to the politicians next time.
