PROP 26 is just as destructive as PROP 23. Prop 26 is a treacherous, big oil rip-off, which "passes the buck" from oil corporation, clean-up fees to the taxpayer, who will pay the oil recycling fees, the materials hazards fees and other fees. If you do not understand the ambiguities and the intrigues behind Prop 26, then, vote no. Exxon Mobil, BP and Shell are silent partners behind Prop 26. Power to the people.

One day not long from now History will show that the rise of the Tea Party was altimately bad for America. It has further polarized the country and turned good level-headed republican politicians into something that I can't even recognize.
As the wealth of the nation continues to consolidate and the poor become more hopeless the future changes we are in for can not be at all good for anyone. Even the Rich.

As a person who writes about his long beautiful vacations in his motorhome it is surprizing to hear such whole-hearted opposition ot any and all environmental legislation. Not once in five years have I heard you say one good thing about proposals to limit pollution or protect habitat. I don't get it. Where are you going to drive your motorhome to when the beauty you seek can no longer be found?

No on 23!! Change is painful but sometimes it is worth it.

Conservatives will party hardy Tuesday night. It is important to remember that the only thing that will change is the Republican's ability to thankfully stop Obama and the Democrats stupid spending. Real change would only come if they were to take the House, and get 60 seats in the Senate. Then if those 60 Senators stuck together, we could see some real positive changes in our country. We need jobs, jobs, and more jobs. Good private sector sustainable jobs, not those stupid unsustainable stimulus jobs that will go away when the money runs out, sticking us farther and farther into debt. We have had it Obama's and the Democrats way for almost two years and look where it has taken us. SHAME on them.

Part of me wants you self-righteous conservatives to win big - just so you can prove that those of you who so capably ran us into the economic ditch we are still trying to get out of can take some responsibility for cleaning up your mess. I am so sick of you all blaming all our woes on democrats when it was your policies that got us into this ditch in the first place. I hope you win big, so you will stop whining, and see how much you like being blockaded and insulted because of your inability to immediately solve our economic woes. It is so sad that you choose to make life difficult if not impossible if you aren't in charge - what about trying democracy for a change....

Oh R1, dontcha understand? The Republicans have tried and tried to fix America only to be thwarted by the Democrats. And as you can see, the complaining will never end. No blame will ever fall on the party of the rightous. You already saw the set up in the post to which you replied, no change will truly come until Republicans win both the house and the senate. This is the mantra from the Repubs we'll all hear for the next two years. I'm bored by it already. Blah, blah, where's my social security check, blah.

Lets see. Stealing from my hard earned dollars to give to the poor who are to lazy to work and earn a living is appropiate for the democrats. Case 2. Forcing me to buy health insurance that I don't need or want is appropiate for democrats. And no I am not a republican or tea partier or democrat. After the democrats thievery for the past 4 years this citizen will never vote for a democrat again in my lifetime. The democrats can take there Obamacare and welfare handoutsto the outhouse as far as I'm concerned. Way to go DON as I voted pretty much the way indicated a long time ago LOL.

You just saw democracy in action yesterday. The people have spoken. 19 lost, 23 lost, Brown, Boxer, and Herger won. The U.S. House of Representatives now belongs to the Republicans. Next in sight for them is 2012. You may not have appreciated all of the results, and neither do I, but the fact is, this IS democracy in action. The policies that got us into this mess in the first place belongs to many entities, including Dodd and Frank. Let's learn from it and move on. Our wonderful Earth has not stopped turning. Have a good day.

No American wins. Both parties suck. Government sucks...and God gave America what it deserves for all this back stabbing and bickering going on. More of the same inept, corrupt government we've always had. People want to change America. It starts in our own backyard. Clean up the corruption in local government and maybe, we've a chance to change our State and Federal. The truth is most of the highly opinionated political bloggers on this site, don't really care about corruption of our local officials. Both parties got what they deserved and America as well. If any one thinks either party is the answer at this point. They are plain ignorant. We're in this mess, because of the Republicans. We stay in this mess, because of Democrats. How does this election fix anything?

It is a sad day for California. We have a career dishonest, unethical poltician,(boxer) continueing her reign. We have Moonbeam II headed for Sac. I think the final nail has been driven into Californias coffin. We can only hope the prop 13 survives under brown. But at this point nothing is for sure. If it doesn't, watch for the stampede of people and business' running from this state.

I would like to say that I am surprised by the outcome. Sadly, I am not. The stupidity and ignorance of the California voter has stopped amazing me. It is now just a sad fact of life in what once was the Golden State.

Mr. Staton, stupid voters put grey davis in office and ( recall ) saved Ca. jerry moonbeam brown, watch your step.

Before you libs jump on me, a capitol letter to start a persons name shows a little respect.
