OK, so he's a little vague on the fact that producing hydrogen takes alot of energy and is, at present technology, inefficient. But I'd love the guy just for his optimism even if he weren't going after one of the worst abuses of the state. Morris:
But Arnold's revolution also aims to restore democracy at home.
Disgusted by the gerrymandering that led to the re-election of all but a handful of members of Congress in 2000 and 2002 (including all 54 California congressmen in 2002 and everyone but Gary Condit in 2000), Schwarzenegger is acting to end the disgrace on our democracy. He is pushing a voter initiative to adopt the Iowa Plan — to have legislative and congressional districts drawn by independent jurists who aren't permitted to take account of incumbency or party in creating the districts.
The cynical political deals that underscored the post-2000 Census reapportionment made the incumbents of both parties invulnerable and limited the number of swing seats to a mere 5 percent of the House of Representatives. Gov. Arnold will change all that in California. And, as with hydrogen cars, his action will likely awaken voters across the nation to take back their democracy.
I think we're all so used to gerrymandering that we have no idea how it has made our nation stale. Term limits didn't work. Although I was for them on balance, nevertheless the argument that it was wrong to take choice away from the voters was a valid one. Gerrymandering, as Morris has said before, is where the politicians choose the voters, not the other way around. If Ahnuld can get this done, oh baby! Sweet!
He also wants to clean up the Public Education disaster that is the American school. Go for it, Governor. Who wants to bet against that guy?
