Some real libertarian paternalism from the Governor of California

September 9th, 2011

Two veto messages:

“I am concerned about the continuing and seemingly inexorable transfer of authority from parents to the state.  Not every human problem deserves a law.  I believe parents have the ability and responsibility to make good choices for their children.”


“I refuse to go down this slippery slope, where the state decides what citizens must wear when petitioning the government.”
