Roger Simon: Is California insane? The voters on the left coast seem ready to elect Jerry Brown and Barbara Boxer, the Demmerkrat candidates for governor and senator, respectively, and Mr. Simon wonders why. Here’s why: We as a nation, and certainly Californians, still believe in a free lunch. You can have a green economy, clean air, free medical care, great schools and well paid union workers, all at no cost. All that’s needed is to cut “fraud and waste” and presto! We’ll witness the restoration of the garden of Eden.
So, it would seem that we’re still a few election cycles away from bellying up to the reality bar. Hard to believe, but things will have to get even worse before voters get it. And things will get worse.
