“Freedom” isn’t the right word to describe the state of things in California

“It’s hard to understand the rationale for Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Independence Day political ad in Florida, which urged Floridians to ‘join us in California where we still believe in freedom.’ OK, there’s a political rationale given that Newsom might actually be planning to run for president, but the video ad is inexplicable. In fact, its wording suggests that Newsom might be delusional. … in what universe can a governor argue that California — despite its historical appeal to entrepreneurs and creative types — remains a beacon for freedom seekers? That ship has sailed like a yacht that has departed Long Beach harbor.” (07/25/22)
