Enough backdoor tactics when changing voting requirements!!!
----A vote "to change" a current voting requirement should always require the current standard iot change that standard (no matter what the vote deals with). In other words, going "from" a simple majority standard should require a simple majority to change it. Likewise, going "from" a supermajority standard should require a supermajority to change it. It defies basic logic, mathematics, and common sense that a "lesser" requirement would be used to "get around a stricter requirement". Yet, that's exactly what happened when a group of people successfully used this unscrupulous tactic to pass HJR 4204 in order to get around what they viewed as "a pesky rule" preventing their ballot items from passing.----
