Californians are having a small rebellion. The Moonbeamer Gov. imposed about half a buck in additional fuel taxes, but we have a right to initiate our own legislation through referendom elections, and we have a measure (K) this year to rescind all the fuel taxes. The left wing parties are really fighting this because the power is with the unions and all economic increases ALWAYS wind up in union pockets, right beside the majority politicians. This is what happens with a Democracy and why our founding fathers set up a republic. Unfortunately, the constitution was changed so Senators are no longer appointed by state legislators, but elected by popular state elections. So corruption festers in every corner of the political world. To late to change it now. They own us. In Europe, they even get to tell the Brits how to heat their tea water, well, they did and then Britain revolted. Oh, there's an idea.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
