I will question Rep Kiffmeyer's assertion that the amendment is "self-executing". If there is no enabling legislation, how can it be enforced? I'd be very curious to hear how others see this.

Mike: Just think, Kiffy and her clique are the same sorts of Republicans who scream bloody murder about "unfunded mandates".

Then again, I do wonder if, after the fact, somebody like Mr. Gunther went through all the possible scenarios that such an amendment, if it succeeded at the ballot box, would engender -- particularly the legal scenarios -- and decided "Hey, this could be more trouble than it's worth; we might want to, erm, accidentally forget to set up a mechanism for enforcing this thing..."
