Re "Jerry Brown has earned another term" (Endorsement, May 18): The Bee cites reasons as having earned Jerry Brown another term with which I strongly disagree. Rather, they show precisely why he should be booted from office.
He violates voters' wills by not defending Proposition 8. He pursues high-speed rail that most people don't want, and that will cost much more than voters approved. He embraces Obamacare, which is forced on everyone by far left politicians and the costs of which continue to rocket upward. He supports an ideologically driven campaign on climate change in part by government-funded, so-called scientists whose jobs depend on perpetuating it as a pending disaster.
It's apparent why California and the country are in such trouble. Opinions from The Bee and others are taken as fact then implemented, regardless of whether they make sense, are cost effective or of any benefit to society.
