I don’t think it’s a bad idea to ask “now what?” I do think the delivery and contempt for the voters deomonstrated in the article is odious. These are the type of people who think it’s OK for judges to reverse the will of the voters. Having said all that, it is a pertinent question; the voters are just sick of having the onus fall on them.
Except that's what will happen.
Then we'll see who laughs last.
It’s always essential services - fire protection, police, roads, etc,
that statists threaten to cut if they aren’t given more of our money.
It’s never their salaries or staff that will have to do without. We simply MUST keep the 3rd executive assistant wine steward on staff while we threaten to cut fire protection by half.

Yep, because taxing and spending is working so well for ya.
someone needs to invite him over here.
Now the link to that editorial is offline. I wonder if they couldn’t take the reader’s comments, which is what I went looking for.
Thanks, you saved me the trouble of writing it. The only other thing I'd mention is that public employee unions are the principal budget-busters and absolutely must be brought to heel -- but of course they're the Democrat base, along with trial lawyers.
The voters have brought some of this upon themselves by stupidly approving huge bond obligations and carved-in-stone increases for education and other spending, etc. in the past. But those measures have been misleadingly promoted as you say. When voters have tried to limit spending on illegals, etc., were overruled by the courts or politicians. Time to get out the pitchforks.
Funny, that’s exactly what a lot of us are saying to Obama and his voters.
Haha link is till on their opinion page too, but it takes you to their “not found” page.
Sure looks like they killed it and haven’t finished scrubbing yet.
“Good morning, California voters. Do you feel better, now that you’ve gotten that out of your system?”
What a smarmy, condescending a—hole!!!
The “peons” dared to challenge the “elite”. That always pizzes libs off, because you can guess whom they believe to be the “elite”. It’s also very telling that they think it’s a challenge for people to govern themselves.
lots of people do not seem to understand that. We hire them to REPRESENT us, not lead us
hmmmm....the editorials that show up now on the Opinion page aren’t nearly as snide and angry. I guess the one you posted was too inflammatory, and they couldn’t take the heat.
There is a clash between “the elite” and “the masses yearning to be free” coming,
and it won’t be at the ballot box.

LOL! If only! (And love your tagline!) Isn’t it nice for hypocritical libs to say “What are you going to do now”, when they know darn well they’d never give the taxpayers the power to decide what they’re willing to fund and what they’re not, they’d scream bloody murder if they were actually serious and would allow the voters their right to decide!
