More on the California recall

Apparently, there will be a forum tonight for "the front-runners" in the race for California governor. The leading Republican, Arnold Schwartzenegger, will not participate...

I learned an interesting perspective from a friend on the recall this weekend. "Why is this such a problem?" he wondered. "I mean, this is a democracy. You have freedom of choice. Boom - here are your choices! And more choices is always better than less, right?"

I recalled a quote by Sigmund Freud in relation to this: "Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility."
