    I worry that the CalDems will loose momentum now that they have the super majority.  

    Too many self interests and lobbies on the left that want funding and think that they now have an open floodgate.  Go to far or push the limits and this could backfire on dems.  The repubs are weak, not stupid.

    Build the economy first, make it strong.  Once it is going strong and has a sturdy foundation, then is a good time to tackle the social issues.   For now, I would hope that the legislature would hold the line on social issues rather than make sweeping changes.  

    To put it another way, The ship of State is in the process of being righted, right it too far and we will have to dodge cannon rolling across the decks of the ship unless we take time to secure them first.

      happen.  California needs to work to form extensive social programs.  A socially sound populace will stimulate the economy from the bottom up and that is what California and, the rest of the nation for that matter, needs desperately.

      Fund as many programs as possible, get people to work, make it easier to raise healthy and educated children, remove businesses that refuse to adhere to safe and worker friendly practices, make green energy and climate conscious policies a top priority.  

      Most of all....get tax levels to the level that they should be, so there are the funds needed to grow a prosperous state.

      California will then become a model for the nation.
