NO on A - Affordable Housing Bond
Issues $600M in bonds (repaid by property taxes) to fund "affordable housing" programs which don't work. This will end up costing taxpayers $1.5B and puts more power in the hands of government without solving the underlying cause of high housing costs in San Francisco-- artificially short supply.

5 Practices For Being An Effective Libertarian Activist

     Here are a few insights I've found in my time as a libertarian (pro-freedom) activist which I consider valuable and thought I'd share in the hope that others may find them useful...

• If you find yourself debating or arguing with someone (in person, online, or wherever) whose stance in the conversation is more pro-freedom on the particular topic or issue being discussed than yours, change the topic or leave the conversation.

In this way, you can ensure that your advocacy is on the side of freedom, not against it.

After all, before it was “South of Market,” it was “South of the Slot,” but it retained the Bay Windows characteristic of Oz.
