Please Stop The Plundering

The CNN exit poll for the CA Governor's race is pretty interesting. People 18-29 gave the nod to Angelides while every other age group overwhelmingly supported Schwarzenegger. I'm not surprised. I've been talking about the forthcoming stable Democratic majority for a while to anyone that will listen. More on that later.

I contemplated a very harsh criticism of the older generation but that's useless. Instead, I'd like to beg and plead, right now, for the older generations to quit stealing my future. Please, don't force me to be responsible for paying the debts you incur toay. As the LA Times points out, Californians voted to borrow money to pay for what they want today. Taxes stay the same for now as we continue to borrow, but when the bill collectors come in 20 years, it will be the young people of today who are going to bear the brunt of that burden. That is unfair. Young people fought for social security and will be leading the charge to make damn sure seniors will always have health care and perscription drugs. Do not thank us by digging us further and further into debt.

I am placing the bulk of the blame on older generations because they are responsible for Schwarzenegger's reelection and he has been borrowing money on our future like there's no tomorrow (in 2004 and this year). That is, much of Schwarzenegger's ability to "balance the budget" as has been reported, has relied upon his ability to get the state to pass bond measures. That is not governance. That is cowardice. That is dangerous. That is short sighted. That is unfair. I'm going to fight for the older generations, but I'd like to ask them the fight for my generation as well. Please!

You really think that by electing Angelides you'll have a more secure future? What about econ 101 did you not get? Angelides wanted to "tax the rich." The people he wanted to tax generally have multiple homes. All it would take is an address change to lower their state income tax from 12% to 0% AND actually lower CA tax revenues. It happens every time. Have you not had history over there yet? Your history profs are probably like mine were...flunkies of econ 101.
