5 good, big propositions on California’s November ballot

If you’re like me, you feel frustrated, angry, and perhaps even sometimes depressed about the torrent of unconstitutional, anti-family, and freedom-robbing bills of the Democrat politicians who control the California State Legislature.

That’s why I’m looking forward to this November. Do you know you can elect a governor who’ll veto all the bad bills? And did you know you can volunteer locally to “replace faces” in Sacramento and Washington, DC?

Most of all, do you realize that you can actually supersede and substitute for the California State Legislature? You see, with the People’s power of the Initiative, when you help pass good ballot propositions, you, as part of the People, ARE the Legislature!

Join me in anticipating these good initiatives on California’s November ballot:

1. Repeal the unnecessary and corrupt gas tax hike and DMV fee hikes of the Democrats and Jerry Brown. This state constitutional amendment is expected to qualify soon for the November 6 ballot.

2. Allow homeowners 55 and older to buy a different primary residence without triggering higher property taxes. This has already qualified for the ballot.

3. Provide the strongest two-thirds-vote protection ever in California against higher taxes and fees by both state and local governments. This taxpayer protection initiative is expected to qualify soon.

4. Roll back much of the Democrat politicians’ agenda of “early release” of violent offenders by limiting parole and expanding the list of disqualifying offenses, and allowing more thefts to be charged as felonies. This get-tough-on-crime initiative is expected to qualify.

5. A powerful symbolic vote (non-effective unless Congress approves) to rebuke the existing “rulers” of California state government — by dividing California into 3 new states that have the power to make their own laws and ignore all the bad laws of the Democrat-controlled California State Legislature from the last several decades. The “3 Californias” proposition has already qualified for the November ballot.

In light of these ballot measures alone, pro-family citizens in their neighborhoods, and pastors in their congregations, have some great reasons to register people to vote!

At the State Capitol protesting the tyrannical AB 2943

Tuesday, June 12, 2018, 7:23 pm | Randy Thomasson


It was great to see several hundred people who came to California’s State Capitol on June 12 to protest AB 2943. It was another rare opportunity for people of faith to see the evil of the Democrat-dominated State Legislature, and to exercise their love for others.

As you know, the tyrannical AB 2943, authored by perverse Democrats, would prohibit counseling for anyone who wants out of homosexuality or transsexuality, and would threaten religious entities if they sold a book or DVD or tickets to an event about helping people escape out of the sexual bondage of homosexuality or transsexuality.

In committee, I stood in a long line of opponents to AB 2943 and told the committee and the bill’s main author, homosexual activist Democrat Evan Low, that “We oppose this bill that discriminates against and denies ‘LGBT’ people’s personal rights to seek self-improvement.”

Earlier, I had given a powerful article to the two Republican senators on the committee, through their staffers and the sergeant-at-arms. The article is called 4 Reasons Even Liberals Should Oppose California’s Gay Therapy Ban. On a post-it note to the two senators, I asked them to hand the article to the five Democrats who sit with them on the committee.

What’s more, in a news advisory prior to the hearing, I told the media that “AB 2943 unfairly discriminates against gays and lesbians whose ‘sexual orientation’ is ‘fluid’ and who want a difference in their lives. Don’t deny people their basic right to choose self-improvement. AB 2943 is anti-choice, anti-free speech, and anti-religious freedom. Every liberty-loving person should oppose this un-American bill.”

At the same time AB 2943 was being heard, so was another horrible bill from the Democrats. SB 320 would require CSU and UC campuses to issue abortion pills to young women (hurting the woman and killing the baby). I joined others who spoke out, saying, “SB 320 lacks medical safeguards for inducing chemical abortions, which often involve negative side effects. This bill is pushing an unfunded liability upon our state colleges and universities.”

Now for the bottom line. I believe these awful Democrat bills, and their other bad bills, have a very high chance of passing the Democrat-controlled California Legislature and going to Governor Jerry Brown. The Democrat legislators don’t care how many people oppose the tyrannical “LGBT” agenda — because they support it. And the Democrats don’t care how many people oppose abortion — because they love it.

Therefore, one of the very best things you can do this election season is to tell your friends what the Democrat politicians are doing. Open their eyes, and you may end up changing their votes.

If AB 2943 is signed into law, there need to be well-crafted lawsuits to overturn it in federal court as the unconstitutional beast that it is. And if SB 320 becomes law, it’ll be yet another reason to keep your impressionable daughters out of CSU and UC — otherwise they could be handed dangerous abortion pills.

Yes, we must be faithful and we must try at every opportunity to defeat evil. If you wish, please leave a message for Jerry Brown. In two separate calls, urge him to veto AB 2943 and SB 320. You can call (916) 445-2841 Monday through Friday, 9 to 5.

not because of the people who are evil,
but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”

Will the gas tax repeal on November’s ballot help conservatives to win?

With low voter turnout among young people and Democrats in general, there were enough conservatives who voted in California’s primary election, enabling Republican candidates to get into the “Top 2” in most of the statewide offices.

A REPUBLICAN WILL FACE A DEMOCRAT IN THESE RUNOFF RACES FOR STATEWIDE CALIFORNIA OFFICES, GIVING VOTERS A MUCH MORE CLEAR CHOICE (AND HOPE FOR REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES WHO WRAP THEMSELVES AROUND THE POPULAR GAS TAX REPEAL ON THE NOVEMBER BALLOT):

Governor: Republican John Cox vs. Democrat Gavin Newsom

Secretary of State: Republican Mark Meuser vs. Democrat incumbent Alex Padilla

Controller: Republican Konstantinos Roditis vs. Democrat incumbent Betty Yee

Treasurer: Republican Greg Conlon vs. Democrat Fiona Ma

Attorney General: Republican Steven Bailey vs. Democrat incumbent Xavier Becerra

A MORE REFORMIST DEMOCRAT AND A CONSERVATIVE INDEPENDENT VS. ESTABLISHMENT DEMOCRATS IN NOVEMBER:

Insurance Commissioner: Independent (and former Republican) Steve Poizner vs. Democrat Ricardo Lara

Superintendent of Public Instruction: (Reform-minded) Democrat Marshall Tuck vs. (union-backed) Democrat Tony Thurmond

IT APPEARS THAT FED-UP CALIFORNIANS ARE MORE IN FAVOR OF RECALLS:

Both a tax-hiking freshman Democrat state senator (Josh Newman of Fullerton) was decisively removed from office, as was Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky, who had been accused of giving a lenient sentence to a rapist. Persky is the first sitting judge recalled in more than 80 years in California.

RESULTS OF THE 2 UP-FOR-GRABS CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS:

Two Republican congressmen — Ed Royce and Darrell Issa — had announced their retirements, and Democrat strategists went into a frenzy to try to take their seats. Meanwhile, liberal Republicans and conservative Republicans squared off. Here are the results:

In north Orange County, to replace Congressman Royce, pro-“LGBT” Republican Young Kim took first place and liberal Democrat Gil Cisneros took second place.

In north San Diego County, to replace Congressman Issa, pro-family conservative Diane Harkey took first place, while two liberal Democrats, Mike Levin and Sara Jacobs, are still “counting votes” to see who gets second place.

AND SAVED THIS ONE FOR LAST:

One of the most consistent morally conservative speakers and fighters in the State Assembly in recent years was Tim Donnelly. After running for governor four years ago (he was beaten by the establishment), Donnelly went into talk radio. Two years ago, he ran against establishment Republican Paul Cook of the High Desert area of California. Falling short then, but trying again this year, Donnelly appears to have earned a Republican vs. Republican runoff in November. If Donnelly’s lead over a Democrat candidate holds, this will be one of the most watched congressional races this fall.
