[Vision2020] Proposition 2: Property Wrongs

Measure 37 is similar in intent but Prop 2 is way worse in substance. 
As an example, Prop 2 allows any landowner to file a takings claim 
even if they don't have an application for some land use change 
before the governing body. They can make a claim simply anticipating 
harm if they might want to do something some day.

On the bright side, if this disaster passes I'll be filing a claim 
that the open range laws are taking my private property and giving it 
to another private party for their use without any compensation or 
even permission from me, the property owner.
