*Aug. 10, 2003.

A lot of people around the world are taking a look at California right now
And shaking their heads wondering what the government of this world player is doing.
While I can't speak for the government I can speak as a citizen who has a voice.
Overall, I think that what's going on over the governorship is a good thing. How?
Well, for one thing I think that it shows that the people's voice can still be heard.
Also, this process should strike fear in the heart of all governors governing.
Responsible governance is what the people want and if they don't keep their word
Or govern responsibly, they may face the peoples' desire of a different choice.
Atleast the world knows that this Republic is living up to its name
And taking its global position seriously in persuing much needed change.
