I just listened to Arnold being interviewed on the Larry Elder radio show, and I've never heard someone contradict himself so many times within twenty minutes. IN the beginning of the interview, he said he was a big proponent of Milton Friedman and his economic ideas, but soon after this, he expressed his support for paid family and medical leave, as well as increases in state-run babysitting. It's impossible to get a clear picture on what this guy stands for.

His stance on our constitutionaly guaranteed yet infringed upon civil right to keep and bear arms is equally wishy washy. The CA Rifle and Pistol Association infers he is pro gun control. From what I've heard from him directly I'd say he is too. Of course the Brady Bill club says he's not enough of a gun grabber (based soley on his a)being a repulican and b)his roles in violent movies.)
I'm torn between making one of the follwing 4 choices. Voting for Arnold anyway because he will probably win and oust Comrade Davis.
Voting for Larry Flynt because, we'll he's larry Flynt,but he won't win(and He's a Democrat.I swore long ago NEVER to vote for one.)
Or to go with either the official Green or Libertarian candidate even though they have no realistic chance of winning but have my support when it comes to the issues.
The whole thing looks right now like the Dems are going to bring the whole process to a crash anyway because Bustamante (the Lt. Gov and Davis' cohort in crime) has the tacit support of the party and the Unions.

Does it even matter who wins? Won't the winner just be recalled three months from now anyway?

(Seriously, I'm sure if Davis isn't recalled, there's some sort of safegaurd to keep this from immediately happening again, but is there anything in place to keep this from perpetually happening over and over and over and over again?)

I sure hope not. Or at least I hope it ain't fixed until enough people forget about Florida.

No, but I'm nearly positive it won't happen again. People seem to forget that recall efforts were tried against Ronald Reagan and Willy Brown, both never really got anywhere. There was one for Pete Wilson too. Davis's approval rating is barely 20%, it's an unprecedented low. I'm sure this will be tried after whoever wins takes office, but I doubt it will work.

Californians know that this recall is making them a national joke, so surely they wouldn't compound the idiocy by immediately calling to recall the next guy....would they?

Still don't see why the Republicans didn't just wait to win in 2004, if Davis was such a lock to lose.

The pundits keep pointing out that this has been happening for 30 years, more or less. They've just never been this successful.

Spoken like a non-Californian. People have been trying to recall governors since the time the provision was put into the Consitution - the only reason it happened to work this time is because Davis worked very hard to get so many people - irrespective of party affiliation, by the way - to WANT him gone. He's EARNED this recall, and that's why I'm convinced it's a slam dunk that he's out come Election Day.

Um, I'll echo what CRZ said, but add that if you aren't a Californian, then you really have no say as to what's happening in California. If you're really preturbed, wait a while, and a media frenzy will happen in your local area.

I live in Northern VA, we recently had the Sniper attacks (now transfered to West Virgina), and long ago, had the whole Bobbitt fiasco. I guarentee, after this is done and overwith, if you live in a well populated area, then you will be up close and personal to your very own local media fiasco. I could be a pervert who collects dog feces, a crematorium that got behind in it's work, or some newfangled serial-pyronecrobeastiality guy, but you'll get one eventually. No need to chime in on what some people are doing, far away from you, that has no bearing upon you, unless you're a genius and are solving the problem, if it's a problem.

Wow. The difference ONE letter makes...I assume you mean "it", right?

Right?

There's nothing wrong with collecting dog feces.

This is not tax evasion, it's tax avoidance. All companies attempt to avoid taxes (as well as individuals), it's only common sense. Tax evasion, however, is illegal. I still don't see paying taxes as patriotic, just as something we all have to do.
