There are, uh, some serious shortcomings with the state of national politics and also some serious structural issues.

Our country’s crazy partisanship is exacerbated by an electoral system that gives Wyomians over 70x the voice of Californians in the Senate. Moreover does anyone seriously think that either party will get serious about the exploding national debt or liabilities like the growing climate catastrophe we’re leaving our children? Lots of reason to not, uh, be excessively optimistic about our countries future as national politics devolves further and further into a reality TV show.

The “confederacy of corruption, careerism and campaign consulting” is real and POTUS 45 has been swimming in rather than draining the swamp. As much as I’d love a President Brown, the truth is that we can’t hoping for a white knight to ride in and save America. The president isn’t super(wo)man and its time that we realize the truth that America is too big and diverse for centralized one size fits all solutions.

Jerry can also speak about the successes of subsidiarity and importance of breaking through the “wall of debt” firsthand. Also free from his day to day responsibilities and able to take the long view from the ranch, he’s uniquely positioned to help transcend our hyperpolarized politics. Such a convention needs leadership from the states which as America’s longest serving Governor, Jerry is ideally poised to provide.

Would also be a fitting (and truly Cinncinatus-esque) end for a leader who uniquely grapples with the big civilization-scale issues and opportunity to truly save the republic before entirely riding off into the sunset. Here’s to hoping Jerry still has one last crusade in him. Lord knows the country needs it…

Comment on Calbuzz Reprise: Our Memo to GOP on Relevancy by I.F.Stone https://www.google.com//109/2018/11/calbuzz-reprise-our-memo-to-gop-on-relevancy/comment-page-1/#comment-11210 I.F.Stone Sat, 24 Nov 2018 06:03:24 +0000 /109/?p=29670#comment-11210 Though I’m reading it in November, 2018, it is probably one of your best posts ever. But today I’m glad the California Republicans didn’t take your advice in 2010. This past 10 years of the Pax Democrita have been much needed after the turbulent Wilson-Davis-Schwarzenegger governorship years. When the Republicans break out of their failed, aggressive post-Republican Revolution mode, collegial bipartisanship would be a boon to advancing all state and citizen interests.

She feigns ignorance to the very concept of single payer, barely pays lip service to organized labor, and willingly plays senatorial villian rotation in life and death matters ranging from health care to warfare. But hey, pramatism.

Clutch your pearls harder.

I am wondering what Jerry will do with the $15 million he has squirreled away in his campaign warchest from his 2014 trouncing of the imp.

Comment on Ex-Insurance Boss Poizner Seeks Non-Partisan Re-do by smoker1 https://www.google.com//109/2018/06/ex-insurance-boss-poizner-seeks-non-partisan-re-do/comment-page-1/#comment-10840 smoker1 Tue, 19 Jun 2018 15:38:44 +0000 /109/?p=29548#comment-10840 The Insurance Commissioner should not be an elected office. It should be appointed by the Governor and the Governor should be held accountable for how the department is run. There are many departments in state government that could be elected by voters, but thankfully they are appointed positions.
