Do you "swing both ways?"

Don't believe everything you think

We do.

True, and I liked the running of the Prostitution Ring out of City Hall. That takes getting screwed by City Hall to a whole new level.

It takes a special kind of hero to attack a single GI with four of your closest friends.
I'd like to see these guys get caught, and have them thrown in an Army or Marine barracks somewhere........ I think I'd let them keep their gun too....Lord knows they'd need it............
To cowardly to go one on one!

I don't know about you but I don't think physics allows "swinging" to only go from one terminus to the apex. It would not be called "swinging" at that point and you would fall on your ass.

I wish there were. There really needs to be a healty middle that eliminates the fringe on both ends. Funny part is that from many people I talk to in Europe they feel that we ONLY have a Moderate system with very minimal fringe. Most cannot tell the Left from the Right. So they see a Bell Curve that is like 5% Fringe Right, 15% Right, 30% Moderate Right, 30% Moderate Left, 15% Left, 5% Fringe Left.

Big picture, they are most likely closer in their observations than we think

I think that when it comes to actual voting, people tend to be be more moderate than they care to admit.

In California, the great left state, we elect a Republican Governor and a Left Wing legislature.

Go figure.

Exactly why most opinions of national politics that originate from California are discarded out-of-hand by the rest of the country.

Perhaps you've heard the term "lame duck" as it applies to a sitting official...typicaly it refers to one who holds office after losing an election, but before his term has expired. The same basic effect happens when, along party lines, the executive and the legislative are on different sides of the fence. In short, very little happens, because each side (foolishly) adheres to parochial interests instead of the interests of their constituency.

When you PURPOSELY elect a republican executive, and PURPOSELY elect Democratic legislators, you significantly hamper the ability of either to make meaningful progress.

Then again, it seems that virtually nobody in California can see past their zero-lot-lines. They allow themselves to be gouged by energy companies because they refuse to approve creation of nuclear energy facilities, etc. They spend hundreds of thousands of dollars they don't have from their home's skyrocketing equity, absent of the thought that such growth has been proven unsustainable time after time. They give away billions in social services to people who are not only illegal aliens, but who are incapable of speaking a word of English.

"Hey California - how's that workin' for ya?"

While that may not be an intended result it is likely the most effective way to achieve a balance of any kind. At least when the power is split there is real debate and an opportunity for more ideas to be considered. When one party, either one, is in total control the path to corruption and abuse is too short. The next thing is closed meetings and policy making without any representation from the other side. Generally a setting for bad policy to be enacted. Jim
