as a govenor of california. Is he a competent politician and has he fullfilled his promises or just another sell out that claims anything to get into power?

I think he's doing a damn good job. He has some great ideas and bills he wants to pass, however he has not been governor quite that long yet, some of these things take time. I think he is one of the only people focusing on real problems with our own country. Actually, I like his recent law he is proposing forcing child molesters to wear arm bands for the rest of their lives so they can be monitered at all times.

I like that he seems to be concerned about enviorment. Not that I know that much about what he does but for beeing a republican he seems very liberal(in a good way).

I dont think he's too liberal, look at his stand on the illegal immigration. The liberals are constantly trying to give help to these people and Americanize them. Arnold Americanized himself, learned English because he wanted to, not because it was part of some requirement nowadays in almost every spanish ridden school. I think his stand on it is like"If you cant make an effort to communicate with Americans and attempt to be legal then get the **** out"

I think your thinking socialist=liberalist.
I was more thinking about his oppinions on like stem cell research, homosexuality and enviorment that usualy is more liberal mindsets.
Maby the fact that he has plenty of money and doesnt have to take "donations" from big companies makes it possible for him to be strickt with enviorment regulations without losing his position.
"If you cant make an effort to communicate with Americans and attempt to be legal then get the **** out" that mindset could very well be the mindset of a true liberal aswell. Like me for instance I am liberal but as far from socialist as possible almost. I have nothing against imigration as long as Im not required to by taxes pay for there living(like socialist wants).

I agree with you on taxation, it's funny how problems today are so much different than those of the past couple decades.

I saw on the news here in Germany that the German government wants to pass a law that makes all of the people on welfare wear electronic armbands... Is this a typical German/Austrian mentality?

.. surely not. I never heard about a law like that and don't think that such a law would ever be passed in germany.

BTW, I have my Arbeitserlaubnis and live/work in Kaiserslautern so I'm not just watching this on American TV.

Arnold is a Kennedy Republican, socially liberal, fiscally conservative. I don't agree with his social ideas, but fiscally he has some good ideas.
I hope his proposal before the people passes on how teacher should be treated when it come to seniority. If you aren't making the grade (no pun intended) you need to be down the road. The legislators need to get spending in control, more money (taxes) isn't the answer. You don't give more money to a drug addict and expect them to stop doing drugs, that what spending money is to these guys, a drug, they need to be detoxed. They need to pay for their own gas, accommodations and meals, give them an allotment, but once it's gone they don't get anymore, that's the way we have to live. They are elected officials not royalty.

He is corrupt, personalizes campaign funds, and lies through his teeth. A true american politician in my eyes.

I'm very interessted in how Arnold is doing his job. As a former actor he must hold all qualifications to come a long way ...
