California voters voted for common sense and canceled their politicians' plans to raise their taxes to pay for spendthrift stupidity. Money quote:
Schwarzenegger helped behind the scenes to garner big contributions for the measure's proponents, who raised about $30 million and outspent foes by nearly 10 to 1.All the money in the world couldn't sell the hijack of the people's income.
Despite a big advantage in cash and manpower, the campaign failed to gain traction from the start. Polls throughout the race showed all the ballot measures - except Proposition 1F - losing badly, as voters expressed equal parts confusion over the package and disdain for the Sacramento politicians who crafted it.
As I wrote last week on Twitter, "Cut spending, don't raise taxes, says California(!) - http://tinyurl.com/pxe2kj - omen for US response to Obama's spree."
It's a relief to see that Californians love their kids enough to protect their future. Let's hope that the rest of the country votes accordingly as well.
ETC: Found this comment here:
What has Schwarzenegger done all his life? Pump up the human body beyond its normal limits which cannot be sustained and make fantasy movies to entertain people.Amen. Ditto for 85% of all politicians.
What has Schwarzenegger done since he became governor of CA? Pump up government beyond its normal limits which cannot be sustained and make fantasies for stupid people to believe in.
