Second, I strongly favor a vote for Tom McClintock.
This is because he is the only Man With a Plan in the Recall
race. He will reduce wasteful government spending immediately
and substantially. He will improve the business climate by
decisively reforming the Worker’s compensation mess.
He will reverse the illegally imposed tripling of the Car
Tax which most strongly impacts the working poor who need
a car to get to their jobs. He will challenge the disastrous
41 billion dollars of oil contracts based on a conflict of
interest, which the current Governor will never do. He will
not raise taxes, nor will he have to. He has a line item veto
and other strong legal powers. Further if elected, he will
have a political mandate. In the long run, he will greatly
reduce the scope and expense of State government, and lower
taxes. He is the only candidate who, if victorious, would
be guaranteed to be reelected, because of decisive success
in addressing our economic problems.
I oppose Bustamante because he would be
even more disastrous than Davis. He wants to regulate gasoline
as well as electricity. That means that the PUC could bankrupt
even more vital industries than it has done so far! Also,
he has no other plan. He will not even renounce a racist slogan
of a student organization of which he was a member. He seemed
barely conscious in his debate appearances in contrast to
the high energy of everyone except the aging Ueberroth. He
hasn’t even given a clear analysis of our current problems!
I strongly oppose Arnold for Governor, because
he has no plan to solve our economic problems and would sign
every repugnant piece of social legislation that our left-wing
legislature sends him. Even Gray Davis could be persuaded
to veto half of them. Arnold would veto none. Schwarzenegger's
immoral personal past has led to an immoral legislative stance
on social legislation. Some people say wrongly that you can’t
legislate morality. That doesn’t keep our left-wing
legislature from legislating immorality, namely indoctrination
in favor of homosexuality as a legitimate lifestyle in our
public schools and access to them by gay groups.
If elected, he would be dogged with legal
problems arising from sexual harrassment suits, which would
distract him from his task of coming up with solutions to
our economic problems. He doesn't have many of those yet anyway!
Catholic voters as a portion of the
sovereign have a similar obligation to vote against pro-abortion
and for pro-life candidates. The public position of all of
these candidates is clear. They favor the right of a woman
to murder her unborn baby, i.e. to have an abortion. This
is immoral and contrary to the explicit teaching of the Catholic
If you will not pay attention to
this, then you are what they call a Cafeteria Catholic—you
pick and choose which of the teachings of the Church you will
believe and attempt to practice. You too are a hypocrite—unless
you change! If you will not change your beliefs and practices
on this matter, then perhaps you would be more comfortable
in a liberal Protestant church!
Bustamante has proposed a disastrous
policy. He wants to change just one little word in State law
to allow gasoline and related activities to be regulated as
a public utility. Let me connect the dots. The Public Utilities
Commission (PUC) regulates public utilities. If gasoline and
related activities are regulable as a public utility, then
the PUC will be their regulator with results as predictably
disastrous as for electric power. But, because he is so inept,
it is quite uncertain whether Cruz would get his policies
Cruz Bustamante has not criticized
the current governor’s policies in a substantive and
detailed way, no doubt because of his ticklish political situation.
Not only do we lack a proper analysis of our problems from
him, but we have no program from him for their solution. If
Mr. Bustamante is elected, it is by no means certain that
in three years he will even get the Democratic nomination,
especially if someone like Diane Feinstein runs for it. She
has positioned herself perfectly to do so no matter what happens.
people are afraid of what Bustamante will do. Some people
are afraid of his being reelected if he assumes the Governor’s
office now. If he did become Governor, in my estimation he
would only have a chance to be reelected or to run as an independent,
if he had governed strongly towards the center during his
tenure. From observing him I conclude that he is not savvy
enough to appreciate the necessity of doing so, nor is he
inclined to do so, even though he unaccountably is in favor
of Joe Liebermann for President. I guess he is just confused!
His chances of reelection are minimal in my estimation. His
election would be very favorable for Tom McClintock’s
chances for getting the Republican nomination in three years.
I’m guessing that Arnold will not even run for that
nomination if he fails to get in by the Recall and anyone
else is elected. If the recall fails, I expect that the two
contenders for the Republican nomination in three years will
be McClintock and Schwarzennegger.
Bustamante belonged to the Chicano-Mexican-Aztlan
(MeCh’A) student organization whose slogan is approximately
“Everything for the Raza (race) and nothing for those
not of the Raza (race).” Aztlan is the once and future
homeland of the Aztec race, which occupies the southwest of
the United States. To realize their dreams, such organizations
must detach this territory from our country. Some wish to
merge it with Mexico. Some may wish an independent state.
Cruz Bustamante has refused pointblank to renounce even the
racist slogan of this subversive organization of which he
was a member. He is also in favor of the recently enacted
measure that makes it possible for illegal aliens to obtain
a California Driver’s Licence. As a result, our State
Driver’s license will probably not be acceptable to
Federal agencies charged with Homeland Security as identification!
Anyone favoring such a law is opposed to national security
in practical terms. Bustamante will not even renounce a disloyal
slogan. Draw your own conclusions!
Bustamante’s placid and bovine
debate performances have essentially ended his chances to
become Governor. If you are still afraid of his becoming Governor,
consider this. If he should become Governor and regulate gasoline
as well as energy, we would have such a disaster that socialism
in California would be thoroughly discredited. This would
open the way for a real change of direction such as that represented
by Tom McClintock!
