We live in a republic, not a democracy. We elect representatives to make our laws for us so we can get on with more immediate issues, such as following professional sports. As a general rule, therefore, initiatives should be considered attempts by special interest groups to hijack the legislature, and referenda should be considered attempts by craven legislators to delegate their job duties to amateurs, all at the taxpayers expense. I dont know what the fuck an "Advisory Measure" is, but it sounds like a publicly-financed opinion poll. Absent extreme overriding concerns, therefore, the dutiful citizen should vote NO on all initiatives, referenda, and ballot measures.
