So I observe that all of Governor Schwarzenegger's pet initiatives in California went down to defeat last night. That is too bad. The one-party state in the People's Republic of California badly needed a shake-up, and these initiatives were a step in the right direction. Since I do not believe all the information is in, I will reserve judgement, but I believe that California is herading in a direction tat does not bode well for its future. Every state that has gone the big-government, high-tax route in the past (see New York, Massachusetts, etc) has suffered repercussions, and California is no different, in my opinion. So now the people of California have spoken. But it is still a crying shame.
in other news, it appears that the Democratic Party made some gains, winning the governorships in Virginia and New Jersey. No surprise in New Jersey, but I believe that Virginia can be laid at the feet of the MSM, who have done their best to downplay the Bush administration's accomplishments, and have made destroying his Presidency their number-one goal since he first won election in 2000. The media need to be reined in. I don't know what we can do to convince them that their job is objective reporting (unless they clearly identify their biases), but the current propaganda disguised as news attitude in most major newsrooms is unacceptable. The Press' job is to honestly report- not to work as the Goebbels Ministry in support of the Democratic Party. When will the American people wake up and realize just how corrupt the media really is?
The only bright spot in the day yesterday was the Texas population's rebuke to activist judges, taking the power to define marriage out of the Judiciary's hands by adding a state constitutional amendment making gay 'marriage' illegal. Not that I have anything against the gay movement, but I do believe that the people (or their elected representatives), and not a bunch of unelected judges, should make decisions of this magnitude.
