Arnold Schwarzenegger has been Republican Governor of California for a while now. He (and his wife) are IMHO politically ignorant nincompoops who shouldn’t be in charge of a corner drug store. Because he’s a Republican, that party saw Arnie’s win as a victory. It never was. (McClintock was the man) Arnie’s election was a victory for the left, and as I expected, the politically ineffectual girlie man has allowed the out of control leftist dominated state government of Kalifornia to do whatever their loony left heart desired. And they have achieved what they always wanted. The state is broke. Not just broke, but utterly and completely smacked out knock down broke.
Trouble is the entitlement mentality that the left have cultivated all this time. Now there is no more money you know its not going to be the left’s fault. Its CAPITALISM that’s at fault. Of course. So there will be riots in the streets and more destruction will be wrought but it won’t change the situation. The left have killed the host as they always intended to. The left will get the rioting they always wanted to get. They have won in Kalifornia.
So the real point is this- Why didn’t Arnie and the rest of the so called right see this coming? Why have they allowed the left to win so completely? Why are they so blind to what a desperate and duplicitous and evil enemy we are all threatened by? Why are we here in NZ, like Arnie, apparently so puzzlingly blind to the same potential outcomes that have eventuated in Kalifornia? Its one question I have no real answer for. Apart from wondering about the existence of some kind of lemming gene.
