Right Idea, Wrong Implementation

A few days ago, I posted my initial take on the propositions on my ballot. A lively discussion has resulted; I do encourage folks to review the discussion and chime in.

During the discussion, I’m realizing that my primary reason for voting no on most of them is “Right idea, wrong implementation.” I’ll note that this is the reason that politicians vote no on bills, even though they are concerned about the subject matter of the bill and they know their vote may come back to haunt them. This gave me an idea.

Instead of our current “yes”/”no” voting, there should be a third option: “Right idea, wrong implementation”. This would count as a “no” vote for the purposes of determining passage, but let the pols know that the populace wants something done on the subject, but done right.

What do you think?
