WE can beat ghosts all night long. I hear your frustration so I’ll leave it at that, I’m not out to relight old battleground campfires. I’ll leave that to other hill folk. ;-)
If nothing else, you’d like to think a lesson was learned, but then we saw 2006 follow and how easily folks can be turned off..
I’m not sure what cause would unite the bulk of the voters, voters are very fickle in this state. and in many instances, they vote with their feet and just look for a more accomodating state.
I think A.S. was always left on the social side but did indeed try to deal with the government employees and unions.
I think ones those props went down to defeat and crushed his power, he felt he had to move left.
I think a lack of vote of conservative nature caused those props to go down to defeat.
Sure, again go for recall on Arnold if they don’t cut spending and instead raise taxes, but I felt I have to be real here and say the lack of vote is what sent the man more to the left. To his credit, he did stick to his word and did indeed try to blow up the boxes of government when he tried to take on unions and government employees.
We could have done better on the special election that MAYBE would have even avoided what is happening in the state today.
