Jerry Brown: Still Socialist After All These Years

Some Democrats get unfairly tagged with the Socialist label; though Barack Obama has put the gas on heading the once grand Democrat Party towards state sponsored capitalism.  That being said there is no doubt where Jerry stands on his Democratic Socialists of America inspired economic plan for California.  Brown said the following in 1995:

The conventional viewpoint says we need a jobs program and we need to cut welfare. Just the opposite! We need more welfare and fewer jobs. Jobs for every American is doomed to failure because of modern automation and production. We ought to recognize it and create an income-maintenance system so every single American has the dignity and the wherewithal for shelter, basic food, and medical care. I’m talking about welfare for all. Without it, you’re going to have warfare for all. Without a universal health care like every other civilized country, without a minimum level of income, this country will explode. You can’t blame the guy at the bottom forever. At some point there’s a reaction and we’ll see that the real criminals are those calling the tune, making the rules, and walking to the bank.

You make the call.  I say this ain't capitalism. It's not even Clintonomics.

Brown's always been a 'less is more' kinda guy. Less jobs means more people dependent on the mother state and therefore likely to vote for the hand that feeds them, houses them, educates (ha!) them, takes care of their healthcare, and wipes their asses.

But Jerry's half empty hall in Fresno, and Obama's deserted hall in Ohio probably means America has had enough of socialism for the next 50 years.

You can almost feel the electricity in the air as we wait for the polls to open tomorrow. America is poised to strike back at the enemy - it's going to be ugly, but the look on Boxer's face will be priceless. She'll make Jack Weiss's defeat look like ticker-tape parade. Bring it on, and let's see more of those f'ed up polls that "noone" believes. Take a look at Obama and Jerry's hall audiences yesterday - there's your poll.

Just walked past Jerry's call to action shindig in downtown LA. Actually I almost walked past it - there was hardly anyone there, in fact looked like it was a case of more press than people.

Still, with enough tight shots of Jerry, and plenty of his staffers in the background, the media will probably make it look like the million man march, or not.

It's hard to believe that the wheels have come of the Brown bandwaggon so quickly, but the call to action seems to have backfired.

Here's the problem Jerry is going to face (as Meg would in the unlikely event she is elected).
There is no way he will have the personal strength or the backing from the legislature to rein in the unions.
Without cutting some serious ties with the unions, his administration is doomed to fail.
If he is depending on a robust economic recovery to bail us out, he should think again. The world has changed so much over the last few decades. To borrow an old Seinfeld line, "we are not the masters of our domain" anymore.

Which sounds a lot better than imagining Meg masturbating!

“Political Parties are not the solution they are the problem.” John Adams

Both parties have the same agenda but we don’t notice it because we are too busy accumulating stuff or watching “American Idol.’’

Your vote carries a huge responsibility and shouldn’t be giving without educating yourself first. Your vote will affect not just you but thousands if not millions of others. It should not be giving because of your allegiance to your party but to the best candidate. And after the elections you must hold them accountable.
