The people of the fringe

California Democrats adopted a platform on Sunday calling for an inflation-adjusted minimum wage and an end to solitary confinement in prisons as part of a strongly progressive agenda in a state where the party has gained dominance by moving to the political center.

The platform also called for free preschool for all 4-year-olds and legalization of medical marijuana, measures that have drawn skepticism from Governor Jerry Brown, who remains widely popular as he prepares to run for an unprecedented fourth term after yanking his party toward the middle.

Look at the world around you and consider the mindset of people who think priorities should be the minimum wage, free preschool and pot. California continues to provide a crystal ball peek into the future of the nation as the people responsible for the government spending and bringing the state’s economy to the brink of disaster continue to fiddle while the flames of Rome singe their eyebrows.

Democrats have had a lock on California politics for quite some time now. They can whine all they want about income inequality but their actions prove that it is merely a political talking point rather than an actual concern.

"...a state where the party has gained dominance by moving to the political center."

What planet is Reuters living on? The old, growth-oriented Democrats of Pat Brown's time were along the political center, but the Democrats who've come to dominance since the 60s and 70s have been moving farther and farther Left, dominated by progressives and outright Socialists from the Bay Area and LA. This new platform merely takes off the mask and shows their true face.

I imagine this will make the attempt to carve California into separate states even more popular. Imagine the captain of the Titanic dragging deck chairs to the lifeboats so he can rearrange them....

The Left finally is for something Governor Moonbeam is against.

What I don't understand is how they can say the state and Jerry Brown have moved toward the middle? If by the middle they mean "Communism", then sure.
