Popman: “This is not a Governor problem, it is a people problem. The Governor must not be very concerned about blowback from the people.”
Very true. California has the government it elected. Blaming the politicians is easy, but the electorate, or at least a majority of it, picked Schwarznegger. Don’t blame him for being a RINO, since it has kept him in office so far.
I’m often told silent majorities oppose the libs. If that’s so, maybe it’s about time for them to be a bit less silent...

Therein lies the problem with our partisan politics. Our political system is efficient in that the elected leadership more or less represents the underlying attitudes of the electorate. For the most part our elections are free and fair.
Unhappy with the quality of elected representatives? Well, take an objective look and you’ll find that there isn’t much of a virtuous “silent majority” out there.
