Description:

If approved, this would add an additional $25,000 Homestead Exemption tier for properties valued more than $100,000. The LPF recommends “None of the above,” because this does not address the root of the Florida property tax problem: the existence of property taxes themselves. Read more about the LPF’s Amendments 1 and 2 recommendations here.

Description:

This would retain the current 10 percent cap on increases to non-homestead property. As with Amendment 1, The LPF recommends “None of the above,” because this keeps taxation of property. Read more about the LPF’s Amendments 1 and 2 recommendations here.

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=’#ffffff’ av-medium-font-size=” av-small-font-size=” av-mini-font-size=” av_uid=’av-365zhe’ admin_preview_bg=”]

Description:

This amendment will require Florida voters to decide whether to allow casino gambling anywhere in the state. This Amendment serves to make it harder to have responsible gambling. It really serves to limit gambling and prevents citizens to the choice to allow it. We recommend a NO vote on Amendment 3. Read more about our Amendment 3 recommendation here.

[av_textblock size=” font_color=’custom’ color=’#ffffff’ av-medium-font-size=” av-small-font-size=” av-mini-font-size=” av_uid=’av-365zhe’ admin_preview_bg=”]

Description:

This Amendment would restore the voting rights of felons after they complete their sentence, including parole or probation. This is only a small step forward to the day when someone convicted of a crime is truly free when they have served their time, but we do recommend YES for Amendment 4. Our Amendment 4 recommendation is here.

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=’#ffffff’ av-medium-font-size=” av-small-font-size=” av-mini-font-size=” av_uid=’av-365zhe’ admin_preview_bg=”]

Description:

This would prevent the Florida Legislature from creating new taxes and fees, or raising current ones, without a two-thirds “supermajority” vote. We want to see a day when there are no new taxes without prior voter approval. For now, we recommend YES so we can move in that direction. Read our Amendment 5 discussion here.

[av_textblock size=” font_color=’custom’ color=’#ffffff’ av-medium-font-size=” av-small-font-size=” av-mini-font-size=” av_uid=’av-365zhe’ admin_preview_bg=”]

Description:

If approved, this Amendment would significantly increase the rights of crime victims, requires judges to interpret laws independently, and raising the mandatory retirement age for judges to 75. Incredibly, a single vote would give a thumbs up or thumbs down to all three, regardless of what you think about them individually. While there is much to like about some of the Amendment 6 proposals, there are also significant problems with it so we recommend a NO vote. Our Amendment 6 discussion is here.

Description:

This would significantly increase survivor benefits, require a “supermajority” vote to increase college fees and make the Florida college system a requirement. While we agree it should be harder to increase state taxes and fees, we recommend a NO vote. Read about our Amendment 7 opinion here.

Description:

With one vote, you will decide all four of the following: make the Florida Department of Veteran’s Affairs permanent; prevent voters in counties with County Charters to abolish, change terms, transfer duties, or eliminate election of the offices of sheriff, property appraiser, supervisor of elections, tax collector, and clerks of court; creates a statewide office of domestic security and counter-terrorism; and changes when the Florida Legislature meets in even-number years. There is much to decide here, but we conclude the negatives outweigh the positives, so we recommend NO on Amendment 10. Read our detailed Amendment 10 discussion here.

Description:

The Ban on Wagering on Dog Races Amendment would phase out commercial dog racing betting by 2020. We oppose all restraints on gambling and believe the public, not the state should “regulate” ethical gambling practices. We abhor violence and poor treatment of any kind, but animal abuse and wagering are not one and the same, so we recommend NO on Amendment 13. Read more about our position on Amendment 13 here.

Our Thoughts On Bundling Amendments

[av_textblock size=” font_color=’custom’ color=’#ffffff’ av-medium-font-size=” av-small-font-size=” av-mini-font-size=” av_uid=’av-jmu02esq’ admin_preview_bg=”]

Several of the these Amendments were “bundled” by the Florida Constitution Revision Commission. This means instead of one vote to decide a single proposal, the FCRC “bundled” two, three, and even four unrelated subjects together. We strongly disapprove of this practice. We think every item on the ballot is important enough to be considered separately. Read more about our multi-amendment thoughts here.

The concept of personal responsibility has escaped power hungry politicians Matt Gaetz and President Joe Biden.

They aren’t republicans, they’re rinos

Why does this admin simp so hard for big tech?

But social media companies aren't abiding by the tenants of section 230. They were immune as long as they were unbiased. They're clearly biased do they shouldn't be immune.

Is it responsible corporate behavior to sow discourse and deceive a population on a grand scale with the intent of undermining a governing document? This is the new war as long as you continue to preach anarchy your not helping. How are you giving corporation libertarian type rights that are not keeping libertarian recognized type rights? Government is evil yes we all know this but it is supposed to be a tool of the people to have control over their wellbeing. If a corporation is using their power to undermine a nations governing document then it’s the patriotic duty of the people to remove such abilities of such a corporation. The fiat has enabled this to become common place in America and this libertarian feed seems to be the psy ops branch of those corporations who wish to flourish under such circumstances. Which will inevitably lead to the end of our constitution. Keep it real we cannot move forward as a country as long as we have a fiat currency. All these refugees are fleeing fiat member countries. The only reason they come here is for the free stuff don’t let em fool ya. It’s not the freedom it’s the free stuff.

Dogmatic Libertarianism doesn’t work. The elite left is going to stomp us if someone doesn’t do a Teddy Roosevelt on them.

Facebook is pandering around the world to anyone with a checkbook. This is unconstitutional. They should not be operating in China Russia South America Korea Iraq it goes on and on Then they come back to America and we’re supposed to believe their not picking and choosing who can and cannot post in a publicly traded company and you people on here are defending this. You have to be kidding me right now is this feed for liberty or what? As long as fiat currencies rule the world we will never have true liberty. Everything everyone does is at the behest of a globalist banker as long as they continue to operate under the fiat system. And your on here like your doing something calling out the delivery guys of the fiat when you should be attacking the business owners of the fiat. These fools didn’t sign us up for global banking and loose all our gold and independence.

More ignorant comments on 230 from people who don't understand it, or the court rulings involving it. If platforms are going to act as a publisher, they should be able to be liable.

They support killing. Just pass a law. Fine upstanding Christians.

Way to manipulate context there.Gaetz doesn't want 230 repealed to sue big tech for users' content.He wants it repealed to sue big tech for censoring user content.See the difference? Words are important. #Lolbertariansgonnalol

Amend Section 230 and stop allowing corporatism to destroy the internet...

I wish Facebook had a triple ‘like’ button for this. So good.

Gaetz doesn't care about lawsuits, he cares about a "platform" acting like a platform, not like editors who pick and choose according to their personal views. Big Tech does not deserve special treatment.

How about Hammers. Should we hold companies that make Hammers responsible for the people who buy Hammers who hurt other people with theses Hammers. What about any other products you buy should they be held responsible because of consumer misuse. Now Fakebook that's a whole other monster. Defund Fakebook and stop comparing Matt Gaetz to Adolf Biden

Section 230 isn't libertarian. People should be allowed to sue (and likely lose).
