The Political Goodness of Prop 14

Prop 14 is good because it puts California elections more in line with the original intentions of our Founding Generation than the two-party system ever did, or ever could.   Activists in other states, who are outside the established party system there, be advised -" follow the CA example and you will increase your Liberty!  

 

One more word of advice:   a change of law is not of itself sufficient for Liberty.   For as long as folks believe they are hopelessly barred from the dominant party system, they will do nothing to change their circumstances.   Given such a belief, the reforms promised by Prop 14 will not take place, as a self-fulfilling prophesy.   Thus, Prop 14 requires not only a change of law, but a change of minds.   As the existence of the Chicken Littles in California suggest, the latter may be the greater challenge!
