To The Editor:

On Tuesday when we go into the voting booth we will have the choice to change our state’s Constitution with five different amendments.

I feel several of the amendments we are asked to vote upon are poorly worded and could possibly do the “Show Me” state more harm than good.

Once an amendment is added to the Constitution it is not easily altered. An example is Amendment 1, “The Right to Farm.” There is a federal statute, passed in 1975, giving the farmers “the right to farm.” Why then do we need this amendment in Missouri?

I’ve seen commercials telling me how to vote on this amendment and I have read www.VoteNoOn1.com. If not fully informed about an amendment or in doubt about the language within the amendment, the best vote is a “no” vote.
