    "it goes back many years to Proposition 13"

    Prop 13 was passed in 1978. That is THIRTY FOUR (34) years ago for heaven's sake!! When a smart man realizes that his income is going to be reduced he reduces his spending a similar amount. Only a fool, or liberals that don't know how to balance a check book, continues to spend at the same or elevated levels.

    California want to borrow money against future lottery revenues to pay yesterday's bills. There was no mention of how they intended to pay today's bills.

    Rifleman, a little research into the woes of California should show you that the root cause of the state's troubles is not something to be blamed on liberals. In fact, it goes back many years to Proposition 13 which capped property taxes at an unrealistic level.

    That, sir, was a conservative thing.

    Look at California and you're seeing the future of the United States when St. Ronald's tinkle down economics finish with us.

    "Yup. It's an election year"

    Liberals who don't like our conservative ways here in Utah have the same exact opportunity to cast their ballots as everybody else. People that like the tax and spend policies of the liberals in California should have no trouble picking a like minded candidate here. (California only has a deficit of $40,000 M ($40 B) dollars and Gov. Brown is begging the voters for higher taxes.)

    Yup. It's an election year. And as a result we will be seeing even more insane pandering to insane special interests and very little that will benefit all of us.
