Larry Elder tried. He did more than most. He sees a state which is failing economically
It is rife with corruption. The science around Covid has been politicized and is being used to gin a culture of fear.
From taxes to homelessness to drug addiction to violence to the pandemic Gavin Newsom has been wrong.
But just like New York just like all of these other blue metropolitan areas the attitude is I will vote for a corpse before I vote Republican. And the evidence is in. We have a puppet in the White House a man who can barely complete a sentence no kidding. But that’s fine because he can be directed by woke ism —ideology does not need intelligence.
The hate is coming from the left. Hate is from the left. Woke ism is from the left. It drives them insane to think that a Republican could be in charge. Larry elder was called the black face of white racism which on a face is the most absurd thing to say ever and that went unchallenged in the major media.
Good luck California. God be with you. For those of you looking to escape —don’t take your politics with you especially if you go to Tennessee or Texas or Florida or some other place where they don’t put up with your crap.
We are doing just fine, despite what has been painted for you here (and people say the mainstream media favors the left …
). We certainly are not failing economically - our GDP, the largest in the US, is ahead of every country in the world except four, and we have a $75 billion budget surplus on top of that, despite the pandemic.
And COVID? California was recently the first and only state to go from red to orange in terms of transmission risk. We have the lowest per capita rate of infections. (Guess who is first? Texas and Florida.) This is thanks to being a state with one of the highest vaccine rates in the country, along with a mix of various and effective vaccine and mask mandates - how any deadly contagion should be sensibly handled.
And yes, we continue to lead the nation in the fight against climate change, as we always have. EPA carbon mandates usually follow ours several years later.
We also all receive a ballot in the mail! How nice and convenient, don’t you think? And no, we don’t have a fraud problem. The exact same counties that voted no on the recall voted for Biden. The votes are real and remarkably consistent.
This is why Larry Elder was soundly defeated, as I predicted would happen back in the spring when this $300 million waste of taxpayer money got kick started.
Most of us are happy with the way things are here.
So don’t worry. Most of us have zero interest in moving to Texas and Florida, or we wouldn’t have so readily passed up on the chance of imitating them here last Tuesday.
