Carousel "If we don't vote for Proposition 76, we will go backward," the governor said at a campaign appearance in Sherman Oaks on Monday. Los Angeles Times - October 7, 2005
First of all, there is really no backward or forward; there are only circles.
Second, if you go backward in California's history, you'll come upon a time when the state's community college system was open to anyone, for free (fees were instituted in the 80s). Free higher education for all. Yes, we wouldn't want to go back to that. Oh, the horror. sadfshfo 1:32 PM
