    Who was the group with those obnoxious ads on the radio every 5 minutes all weekend "my mommy taught me to love our constitution... evil people want to change it (and hate baseball, apple pie & American flag I am sure also)"

    The group was funded by a secret organization that wouldn't let their identity be known. Interesting they were against a "secret ballot" provision when they were operating in the shadows.

    Secret balloting will limit bullying and pressure from unions or groups of members toward those voting one way or another. It levels the field, something unions will naturally be wary of.

    I find it strange that we needed to modify the constitution to account for the property tax exemption; it would seem that's not a constiutional issue and could/should have been resolved some other way.

    Secret ballot is a fundamental right. If unions or management can't exist without intimidating voters, that's a good sign.

    In response to the first comment: unions and associations are fine. They just have to abide by secret ballot rules. It will be easy enough to make up an anonymous ballot to distribute to members.

    A sad day for Utah with these amendments getting approved, we have lost more of our rights to oppose government corruptions. The first thing to go will be the UEG, Utah's for ethical government petition, the target of the ethical government amendment. This amendment will change nothing in ethics and morality in Utah leaders.

    Unions have received the final blow to squash and eliminate them in Utah, if you think you live in poverty now, wait until all the unions are gone, even those in government jobs.
