I voted yesterday. I participated in the process by which this great country is run. I’m suppose to be happy and proud that I participated and I guess I am. However, I have to confess some frustration as well. California faced a special election this year. The ballot held a number of propositions but in the end this election was largely about the failure of the California State government to do the job at hand. Our latest movie star governor failed to work with the “girly men” (see my previous post) in the legislature to begin resolving the issues in California that brought this state to the point of recalling its last governor.
So California went to the polls and voted NO down the line. The population of the state rejected all the propositions. I have to wonder how many will understand that this was really a renouncing of the state government as a whole?
