  •  While they sound democratic, those initiative (1+ / 0-)

    deals seem really, really disruptive.  I can understand the motivation for a direct action from the electorate (initiative grew out of the Robert LaFollet Progressive movement, I believe), but that assumes that the electorate is a mature, progressive, and educated electorate, which seems not to be the case in California.  These initiative seem to allow a small group of motivated activists who propose an idea that may, on face value, sound OK, but in reality, is very destructive and disruptive (like California's Prop 13).  I feel sorry for people out there because the state seems to be slowely falling apart.
