|Jerry Brown: Old Socialist Retread|
In all probability, they won't have to move out of the state. Brown will be elected in this uber-blue state. It will be I who will have to leave the state, following the outward flood of businesses and citizens out of Moonbat Heaven.
Those outbound businesses are leaving for good reason. California is hostile and punishing to business. Business is what gives people jobs and creates products and services that make our lives easier, and creates tax revenues in the process. That's something our bankrupt state needs to keep paying the bloated benefits of our militant unionized state workers. Californians, however, have a long history of shooting themselves in the foot. They will vote for the opposite of what California needs. So what are the choices for governor in November?
On the one hand, we have Moonbat Brown, who has never created a job or met a payroll in his life, whose legislative career has been about suing businesses and increasing taxes, organizing farm workers and Vietnam war protests. Brown is one of those insular leftists who hasn't a clue as to how the economy works. He doesn't understand economic theory, let alone its actual practice. He is a living, breathing symbol of everything that is wrong with the politically neurotic state of California: all show, posing and posturing without substance.
Will Meg Whitman be better? She has some hopeful signs. She has not only met a payroll, she took EBay from a 30 employee company to one with 15,000 employees. She has a real-world, working knowledge of building wealth and creating jobs. Her knowledge of economics is based on actual practice as well as theory.
I suspect she has an insight or two about how to make California friendlier to business and staunch the outbound stampede of employers and jobs. Jerry Brown doesn't have those insights. He has only his far left inclinations, marinated into his bones by a lifelong immersion into radical politics and hippy culture, with its peace symbols and clouds of pot smoke. He sees business as something that the public must be protected against, and he will protect us: from jobs, prosperity and solvency.
The question is, will Californians finally end their protracted adolescence and finally grow up? Don't hold your breath.
