Have some of you voters wondered how California got to where it is today politically?
Currently, we are a one party state. All state officers are Democrats. The congressional delegation is majority Democrat. The state legislature is run by Democrats and Republicans do not have enough votes to stop any legislation. Jerry Brown announces that California is the most prosperous state in America and has one of the largest economies in the world.
If Governor Brown were accurate we would all be happy with life in the Golden State. Funny thing though, we are not. Millions of residents have left the state. Could it be that things are not as we are being told?
Let’s have some facts.
Why has this all happened in what once was a wonderful place to live? Let’s remember who has been in charge. Since 1992 the state Senate has been run by Democrats. The Assembly has also been run by Democrats except for the 1996 term. Republican Governors Pete Wilson and Arnold Schwarzenegger had to deal with a Democrat legislature.
So, given the above information, is it reasonable to conclude that the Democrat Party and its platform is responsible for the slide of this once Golden State?
The question must be asked. Do California voters just go to the polls and vote Democrat because that is the way they have always voted? That would appear to be the case. Worse yet, do a lot of Republicans and Decline to State voters stay home?
We have a primary election in June. There are some excellent candidates on the ballot for some very important state offices.
Election expert lawyer Mark Meuser is running for California Secretary of State. Mark has some fascinating statistics about some of our counties and their registration levels. For example, Los Angeles County has a 140% registration level. Many people also have stories about relatives who have died and someone is still using their I.D. and voting. Democrat Secretary of State Padilla can’t seem to clean this mess up. It is pretty clear that illegal immigrants are voting although the California Constitution states that you must be a U.S. citizen in order to vote.
An outstanding candidate for California Attorney General is Judge Stephen Bailey. He has been campaigning hard around California and will be with us on April 25th. He brings judicial experience to the position and a high level of integrity. Check his web site.www.baileyforag.com.
In Sonoma County Matt Heath is running for the 2nd Assembly Seat in the Legislature. He will be looking for support and workers. Matt will be an excellent representative for Sonoma County and the North Coast. Check his web site at www.mattheathforassembly.com.
The reality of our current political state of affairs is that cities and states that are totally run by Democrats are in a mess contrary to the public relations stories that are pushed. Every major city that is a fiscal and social disaster is run by Democrats. Just to name a few: Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Oh, let’s not forget New York. Mayor Bill de Blasio has done such a great job that it is now ok for people to relieve themselves on the street and there are no penalties. But remember: That is happening all over San Francisco.
Do rational California voters want to take back their state? That is going to take work and effort. The question: Do we care enough to make the effort and do the work?
