Wouldn’t it be nice?

Over at Town Hall, citizen activist Paul Jacob has compiled a list of the top 10 ballot measures on the ballot nationwide this November. Sure, we are voting on the Rail Runner (ex post facto) of course, but wouldn’t it be great if citizens could put issues they want on the ballot?
Here in New Mexico we really don’t have this capability as we lack the initiative and referendum process (in most cases at the state level). I realize that in a liberal state like New Mexico, this could be dangerous, but I’m willing to take my chances that allowing the people to have a greater say in the rules they live under will be a good thing. What do you think?
