With publics deadlocked and economies in crisis, handing undemocratic powers to bureaucrats, commissions, or political leaders feels like the quick solution. Eurocrats sap money and sovereignty from democratic electorates, Obamacare sets up a de facto rationing board that undercuts the Constitution’s balance of powers, and now California’s Proposition 31 is two months away from swallowing up America’s tradition of local government in a coercive redistributionist scheme.
The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result.
What else can you say? This is crazy, but it is California. If we aren't careful, the rest of the country will be just like it. Driving jobs and people away, just like California is doing now. Remember how the USA was a magnet for people all over the world? Not anymore if we become like this failed state.
