CaCa, no way!

We had a parental notification proposition about your children getting an abortion going down that day.
If there were conservatives in numbers, then parents today would have the right to know if their child was having an abortion and it could not be done behind your back.
If there were so many conservatives out there (which there wasn't), then that prop would have passed EASILY.

Not saying I like at all what A.S. is doing, and if someone want to recall, I'll sign on.
We can NOT lose sight of the fact that when he tried to blow up boxes, the conservative vote ran for the hills.
Have to call a spade a spade.
We have to be responsible for what DID NOT HAPPEN.
There wasn't a big conservative vote that election.

What happened to A.S. that election reminded me of that Clint Eastwood movie where as a gunman he was hired to protect the town with the promise that the people would stand by him. But once the bad guys came to town, all the town folk hid behind doors and did not help at all abandoning the Eastwood character.
In a large way, that went down just like that for A.S. that election.

WE Kimosabe?

castigating the conservatives is the easy shot to take here, but imo, there are a helluva lot of reasons things blew up in the ballot box .. but frankly, it comes down to it just wasn’t meant to be and for that the ultimate blame is not the conservatives fault, it is the leadership of the state that has lost sight of its own responsibilities on all too many fronts, imo.

most measures need not be placed at the voters feet to decide , we elect representatives to make those decisions and when they don’t or won’t, then it becomes a crapshoot... which is about all we have coming out of StinkyMento these days ,, is crap.

Prop 73, Parental Notification, got 47% of the vote, despite limited support from the GOP and Arnold
and the presence of an agressive campaign against it from the pro-abort crowd.

Prop 76, State Spending, got 37% of the vote.

As Amerigomag said, conservatives (that voted for Prop 73), voted against Arnold’s sham Prop 76.

Blame conservatives for not showing up, all you want (even though many did). Regardless, it wouldn’t have helped pass flawed props.
