The problem with the referendum process is that the wrong kinds of things become law - because the general mass doesn't pay attention to all the details. The reason they elect politicians is so that...

I didn't know where I was going to go, so I took both. (Most people around here only took the SAT's.) I got a 27 on the ACT and a 1310 on the SAT. Not to toot my own horn or anything.
