In California, Republican Meg Whitman is now in a competitive race against Democrat Jerry Brown. Polls show that Brown has a slight lead against Whitman. This is unacceptable.
When former Governor Brown left California’s gubernatorial office in 1983, the unemployment rate was 11%. There were about 1.3 million Californians out of work. Currently, California is 19 billion dollars in debt. The unemployment rate is 22%. Do Californians really want a Governor who repeatedly increased spending and taxes under his administration?
My fellow conservatives and Tea Partiers; California is our modern day Alamo. The familiar maxim, as “California goes, so does the nation” is true. If California elects Jerry Brown, he will continue the bad financial habits the state has been engaging in for years. And, other states will follow Jerry Brown’s bad example. Why? If financially irresponsible Brown is elected, the voters of one of American’s largest states will simply be sending a message to politicians that they don’t need to take our anger over excessive tax and out-of-control spending seriously. And, the rest of the nation will be called on to bail out California.
That is simply unacceptable.
For those of you who are concerned about America’s current financial crisis and want to put an end to reckless government taxation and spending, the best way to do that is to help Meg Whitman in the last days of the election. If we allow Jerry Brown to beat Meg Whitman, it doesn’t matter what other victories win on November 2nd. Why? California is simply a reflection of how federal government operates by imposing high taxes and reckless spending. As a result, California could drag American down financially if it continues on the path of financial irresponsibility. The consequences won’t be limited to California. It will certainly ripple across the country. As you can see, this election has consequences that will impact each one of us and determine the success or failure of America.
Given how important this California election is for the state and our nation, we must protect California, and by extension, America at all costs. Therefore, I am asking you to dedicate an hour or more of your time every day this week to make calls for Meg Whitman. You can do it from the comfort of your own home regardless if you live in or out of California. If you are in California, please go to a Meg Whitman office near you and volunteer. I also encourage you to please make a contribution to the Meg Whitman campaign.
It’s important to ask everyone you know who is concerned about the future of America to dedicate some time helping Meg Whitman win on November 2nd. Just as early American patriots enlisted their friends and neighbors in the fight for freedom, I humbly ask that you invite your friends to make a stand for California and America by dedicating your time to help Meg Whitman win.
If you wish to send a message to the leaders of both parties that America’s debt and out-of-control spending will not be tolerated any longer, then the only acceptable way to send that message is to declare that it won’t be tolerated in California, either.
UPDATE by Jayde – Please! No more clueless politicians. Here’s Jerry Brown – in his own words – clueless:
