Erik Voter Guide for California

 

Not being a US citizen, I of course do not vote in the US, but am glad to advise those who wish to do their patriotic duty.

 

Prop 19 –  No (mild no, it would be funny to see what would happen if it passed, since pot  remains Federally prohibited, and the assertions about taxing it and regulating it are lies, since states, counties and local governments cannot tax, license and encourage the sale of federally illegal substances. You could have federal indictments of whole local governments).

 

Prop 20 –  Yes

 

Prop 21  –  No

 

Prop 22 – Yes (debatable)

 

Prop 23 – Yes

 

Prop 24 – No

 

Prop 25 – No

 

Prop 26 – Yes

 

Prop 27 – No

 

Governor:  Ugly choice. Probably Dale Ogden would be best. Being that he is unlikely to win (by a self perpetuating cycle of people believing a 3rd party candidate is unlikely to win thus not voting for them), Meg is probably slightly better than Jerry brown. However, Meg is likely to be very similar to Arnold, thus, not being able to change much, and thus almost assuring a Democrat victory after her. Ca is in such bad shape that the governor is pretty helpless since all a state govt really is, is  a budget, rules and regulations. All of those are controlled by a huge Democrat majority. A governor does not have foreign policy or an army like a President. He is at the mercy of the assembly. Arnold can’t even turn on the water that was shut off by federal commis that dried up some of the most productive Ag. land in the world. All dust, thousands lost their land, and jobs, and he cannot even turn the water back though he wants to.

So, Brown is more likely to push CA passed the brink in collusion with the unions, and actually bankrupt CA. After this, it could actually usher a new great era in the backlash and with the voidong of all the pension and union contracts.

 

Lt Governor:

 

Pamela Brown (Maldonado betrayed his fellow republicans and his no new taxes pledge)

 

US Senate:

 

Carly Fiorina

 

Secretary of State

 

Hardest choice on the ballot. Damon Dunn’s story is inspiring, from poverty in the inner city to success in business and politics as a Black Republcan. Has most definitely earned votes. Unfortunately, he is running against an ancient Merton Short in the American Independent ticket, a Navy pilot commissioned in WWII who served all the way through Vietnam.  A patriot, and a defender of the Constitution, he takes the vote from the otherwise very deserved Damon Dunn.
