This is how partisans change a country. They convince the public that a viewpoint is not only wrong but, worse, illegitimate, and the battle is won. They get what they want and keep moving the bar.

As I write this, it appears that Democrats will control a supermajority of the California Assembly and Senate. The Dems have controlled the Legislature for years, albeit with the check that they have needed GOP votes to raise taxes.

I can see the future. State spending will rise. Sacramento will experience an insatiable appetite for other people's money. A few employers will leave; more will decide not to expand operations in-state. With a tight job market, middle-class Californians will have to move to other states. And they'll bring their destructive politics with them.
