California's electric car mandate seeks to "influence other states and Washington."
Wow. But that's what states are for, right? That's what states are supposed to do as a matter of conservative principle. Go California! This is so obviously different from Washington mandates. Completely. Different. The electric car mandate is sure to save millions and boost the economy so much better than the free market is capable of doing. In fact, I bet two-thirds of the people of California will overwhelmingly support it.
At least, that's the Romneybot argument.
"I like mandates," Romney said during a
debate in New Hampshire. "The mandate works."
I think the "conservative" movement has gone insane. Someone wake me up.
