I don't know why
You call some place paradise
Kiss it goodbye
So California voters decided that they no longer wanted to be enablers to a system that will ultimately collapse under it's own weight.
But then again, this mess is entirely the fault of the voters if you listen to this ding dong....
By rejecting five budget measures, Californians also brought into stark relief the fact that they, too, share blame for the political dysfunction that has brought California to the brink of insolvency.
Rightly or wrongly, voters in the special election refused either to extend new tax hikes or to cap state spending. They also declined to unlock funds that they had voted in better financial times to set aside for special purposes.
Nearly a century after the Progressive-era birth of the state's ballot-measure system, it is clear that voters' fickle commands, one proposition at a time, are a top contributor to paralysis in Sacramento. And that, in turn, has helped cripple the capacity of the governor and Legislature to provide effective leadership to a state of more than 38 million people.
Clogged freeways, the decline of public schools, an outdated water system and a battered economy are just a few of the challenges demanding action by state leaders. Instead, they are consumed by yet another budget crisis, one that voters worsened Tuesday.
Wait a damn minute here. You mean to tell me that because voters have enough sobriety to say when enough is enough it's their fault that legislators won't prioritize spending.
That's the arrogance of the average "progressive", the voter is too dumb to keep enabling a seriously failed system run by "professionals".
