  •  California is better because of it (2+ / 0-)

    Yes some corportations have gotten some stuff passed, but they would have gotten much more passed if we only had the (corporate controlled) legistators.  And occasionally we get some religious group sneak something by us (Prop 8), but fortunately the courts can be a balancing act (Prop 8 was overturned).

    But overall, we have done better with the public voting instead of the legislators. We got Medicinal Marijuana passed way back in 1996, and several injustices done by older laws. In fact, last year, we even had tax increases voted in by the public.

    Like Bill Maher said, we got rid of our Republicans and now we are much better off.
