Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I opposed Prop 11 - it's rearranging deck chairs at best, at worst an attempt to push the Democratic Party to the right and reduce the number of Democrats CA sends to the House of Representatives.

Partisanship is not CA's problem. A lack of democracy is.

And the world will live as one

Thanks for elaborating, Montereyan.  Just took it at face value because the person who mentioned it to me (political activist/long-time Dem in the Oakland area), seemed to think it was a good idea. Can't see why he'd be in favor of things moving to the right and less Dems in the House, though. I'll definitely have to inquire further on this.
