Have you had any success with this?

Yes - we had great success in 2003. 

We petitioned to recall Gray Davis, and when the requisite signatures were obtained, a special election was called.

We kicked Gray Davis out and Ahnold Schwartzenegger assumed duties as Governor.

Schwartzenegger was re-elected in 2006.

Also, the recall process works on a local level.  A few years back we recalled nearly the entire City Council for misappropriation of City funds.

They paid $480k to a construction company to start construction on a new library.  The total cost of the project was $1.8 Million.     The thing is, any city projects costing over $1 Million required voter approval!

So we recalled all their asses!   Grin    Grin (except for the two Council members who dissented)
  

Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

You did it once, 17 years ago? And you're still bragging?

I liked your answer, I just think it indicates that Kalifornians have had very limited success at recalling elected officials.

I signed to get rid of that son of a bitch Davis. Gavin Newsom is going soon too.  But really,  I think California should be allowed to die as quick as possible.  Why hold on to it Chief, it's long gone.

My strategy is to ride it out until the collapse.  Property values will plummet like they did in Detroit.

Then I buy up acres of beach properties @ pennies on the dollar!    Smiley

Just a question.

Why don't you use your gold to pay off your mortgage and leave the property to your grandkids?  Or do you plan to have it paid off before you die?

The Detroit example is not a good one.  We don't see anyone buying up property in Detroit and besides, the Chinese are already buying up all the good beach property.  Do you have any idea how much one of those new condos costs of Main St. HB?

Our kids get the house, grandkids get the gold.  The value of the equity in the house is WAYYY more than the value of the gold cache.

Imagine the fun they'll have searching for a real buried treasure!   Smiley
