Believe it or Don't

More This Week in Stupid

In California there is a huge budget crisis, and the newly elected Governor campaigned on the idea that the deficit would be closed by equal cuts in spending and tax increases.  He also said that he would take the issue to the people, that is, have a vote on whether or not to raises taxes or to balance the budget solely by spending cuts.

The Governor appears to have convinced a large majority of his citizens that his plan for a vote is a good one, and his plan to raise taxes as part of the solution is a good one.

So what do Radical Conservatives want to do.  Well they want to block an election, and can do so because they have enough votes in the legislature where a super majority is required to schedule the vote.  Seems like they just do not get this Democracy thing.
