Vote in odd years too, and actually figure out what you are voting for

Well I just came from my polling place after having voted on about 13 constitutional amendments. They all sounded great when I read them, but I also had the distinct feeling that I didn’t know what the heck they were really about. Since they are all constitutional amendments, voting yes for any of them would technically mean growing the government since even the most benign would require some sort of money to operate. To add to the confusion, for example, when one of them was talking about wanting to buy land around military bases for expansion, there was probably one specific military base and one specific piece of land in mind. What does the military base land amendment do after it has accomplished it original mission, so to speak? In an attempt to learn more, I got some suggestions for research:
