"Reforming California: Easier said than done"

You can say that again.

For the last couple of years, some of the state's most influential business titans and elder statesmen have taken time off to grapple with the mess in Sacramento.

Former Secretaries of State George Shultz and Condoleezza Rice, Google Inc. Chairman Eric Schmidt, Los Angeles philanthropist Eli Broad and other heavyweights have all attended an effort known as the Think Long Committee for California, which is focused on squaring away the years of mismanagement from Sacramento and conflicting mandates from citizen initiatives.

They haven't gotten very far.

California is just Detroit writ large.


This is the future of the entire nation. Over time it has caught up with us. You cannot have Democracy in an immoral nation. We are immoral because a majority in the nation (1) want to meddle in their neighbor's business, (2) want to punish the achievers, and (3) want freebies and goodies from the Gov.

Long term Democracy cannot work. A limited representative Republic, with limited participation, can work, but populism always transforms those into Democracies over time.
