Voice: If this is what you want, keep voting for tree-huggin' Democrats

May 14, 2002

So here we are. We can't drill for oil in the ANWR because of the caribou. (Although we are dependent on the very countries that hate us.) We can't build power plants in Mexicali. (Although we suffered blackouts last summer from a lack of energy.) We can't have "off-roaders" soiling the desert. (Although they have been for over 100 years and are vital to our local economy.) We can't keep our water because San Diego is more important than us. (Although Santa Barbara built a desalination plant and San Diego can do the same.) We can't build and improve our infrastructure. (Although we have no choice.)

My answer to all these problems? Keep voting in tree-huggin', feel-good Democrats, because as long as you think you're voting for the "good guys," you will like yourself more as our problems are compounded. But as long as you're happy, I'm happy. (Although it's catching up to us.)
