    Well, that's not true.

    Most police functions are valid goverment functions, and should be funded.

    But the state should eliminate seat belt laws, for example, so the cops can enforce laws that related to public safety, not public coffer filling.

    As I said, the state budget should be published, and each item should be prioritized so that voters can ask why there's a priorty 8 item (neighborhood artistic enhancement) still on the budget when the legislators are cutting priority one, public safety, items first.

    Right.

    The Democrats never lied about thing.

    The Republicans forced a stop to legislated tax increases, against the will of Mr. Kennedy, even.

    Who's Mr. Kennedy? When did Republicans put a stop to legislated tax increases?

    California's governor.

    Formally, he's Arnold Schwarzenegger-Shriver, but since "Shriver" is code for "descended from Kennedy scum on the maternal line", Arnie's a Kennedy.

    He's sure acting like one, far left and illogical.

    And because of the Republicans, California passed the largest tax increase by any state in United States history.

    All by themselves, the Democrats didn't vote for it?

    Amazing, since the Democrats hold the majority.

    If it wasn't for them, the bill would not have passed. Taxes are Democrats' thing. It is a given that they would vote for it.
