[quote] California has shown us the way in at least one respect: If you want to solve your budget issues, fire all the Republicans. Kick them out. They suck. THEY are the problem they're bitching about.

Give it a rest.

This country would be in even worse shape if we followed the lead of California.

It's not the Republicans causing you problems it's your idiotic ballot initiative process.

Imagine the crap that could pass in this country based on extremely well funded initiatives that only need a majority vote nation wide.

If you don't fix that, there is a good chance you will take a giant step backwards in five to ten years.

R13 - Are you just going to re-write history?

Look at the exit polling on Prop 8.

Obama wins the state and Prop 8 passes.

Hard to argue that is a result of the Republicans.

You're government can be co-opted by any well funded ballot initiative - regardless of party affiliation.

That's the problem.

Don't post this misogynistic, homophobic asshat, OP!

The ballot initiative process IS a major problem though. It makes it too easy for populists to hijack government. And money can do too much damage with those proposition. There is a whole industry around running propositions now. It's terrible.

On the bright side though: After revamping primaries, parties have now fewer reasons to appeal to their respective radical wings and more reasons to appeal to the center. That should help in Sacramento in the long run.

Christ, R20. Chill. No one gives a flying fuck that you're an 8th generation Californian. Those of us who moved here quite a bit more recently -- because our work brought us here -- have had it up to here with assholes like you braying on about how everybody else ruined the state after their multi-great grampa arrived.

Like you wanted to slam the door shut once your family got here.

And you're absolutely dead-on wrong that Brown has run up debt and ruined the state's economy. The opposite has happened.

But what do facts matter? You're an eighth-generation Californian! No one else is a real Californian like you!

R17 - what did I say that was wrong?

If the rest of the nation were to follow CA and implement a nationwide ballot initiative process similar to CA's - it would be a disaster.

You disagree with that?

R18 - so you point is Californians are too dumb to know what they are voting for?

[quote]If you can't see Republicans are the root of nearly all this nation's problems, then you're a willfully blind tool.

That kind of intellectual reasoning puts you right up there with the great thinkers from the WBC.

Let me point out one major flaw in your thinking. Who do you think signed the bill which deregulated the financial sector which then caused our economy to melt down? A Democrat. Bill Clinton.

You have to turn a critical eye not only towards the Republicans, but also the Democrats.

R20, please move to Arizona.

R20 (later R26):

[quote]NO I'm not a tea party person! No I'm not a Republican!

Yes, you are!

You proved that by deliberately not noting that the majority of governorships in the state of California, over the last 30 years, were held by Republicans. Instead, you decide to focus on Jerry Brown (elected in 1974, 1978, right after the two terms of Ronald Reagan and -- more than 30 years later -- Brown won election in 2010).

You're a selective, full-of-shit asshole.


1982: George Deukmejian (R, 1983-1991)

1990: Pete Wilson (R, 1991-1999)

1998: Gray Davis (D, 1999-2003)

2003 Special: Arnold Schwarzenegger (R, 2003-2011)

2010: Jerry Brown (D, 2011-present)

Republicans have held the governorship for 23 of the last 30 years. Blame them for your California concerns.


But you won't do that.

You're nothing by a FREEPER TROLL, R20/R26!

R20-26 is a hysterical twit who can't cope with the fact that no one cares his family has been in California for eight generations.

Or to put it in R20-26 terms, eight generations! Let's use more exclamation points! Because we're clueless and we think that sprinkling stupid punctuation in is like using accessories!

When facts aren't on your side, then punctuate!
