SaveCalifornia.com provides the following solely for educational purposes. Since our beginnings in 1999, our pro-family, pro-child organization has taken positions on ballot measures, yet our non-profit status does not permit us to support or oppose candidates for public office.
 


SaveCalifornia.com provides our recommendations on California ballot propositions based on Jesus Christ’s command to “love your neighbor as yourself,” and His definition of love -- giving God's goodness to others and obeying His biblical commands, which greatly benefit families and our culture. 

There are 5 statewide propositions from the California State Legislature on the June 5 ballot. (In 2012, Governor Jerry Brown and the Democrat-dominated Legislature prohibited intiatives from the People from the June ballot.) SaveCalifornia.com supports 2 of the 5 propositions, which are only mild reforms:

68  NO  Expensive bond (more costly than a direct tax) to fund "water projects" of liberal environmental groups, resulting in less water for families and farmers
69  NO  A big-government ruse that continues to misspend funds and aims to weaken support for the upcoming gas tax hike repeal
70  YES Provides higher accountability by requiring a 2/3rds legislative vote to spend "cap-and-trade" revenues collected from California businesses
71  NO  Prevents approved ballot measures from taking effect the day after the election and instead delays implementation up to 43 days after Election Day
72  YES Exempts new rain-capture systems of California homeowners from higher property tax reassessment

A principle to remember on local taxes, bonds, fees, and assessments:

Graphic Money HouseSaveCalifornia.com knows that big government often robs people of personal responsibility and saddles working families, property owners, and small business owners with greater financial burdens. It's all because big government refuses to investigate and slash its own waste. Because of the influence of government unions and bureaucracy, independent, tough audits are simply not seen. Therefore, we encourage you to vote NO on ANY AND ALL tax increases, tax extensions, bonds (which is borrowing money, and always more expensive than a direct tax because you must also pay back interest), fees, and assessments. It's pro-family to keep more of your hard-earned money, so it's pro-family to oppose wasteful government taking away more money from you and other Californians. Sneaky politicians like to take it incrementally, so you must consistently oppose even the smallest tax/bond/fee/assessment increases in order to inhibit the government from making you and your family poorer. 


DID YOU KNOW...

Don't trust the "Republican voter guide" or "Democrat voter guide" sent to you in the mail. WHY? Its "endorsements" are PAID by the candidates themselves! Look at the FINE PRINT. Don’t rely on voter guides in the mail unless they are from a trusted, recognizable source. And unfortunately, those trusted sources are very few and far between, because even some pro-family voter guides are including pro-perversity Republicans as "pro-family" candidates. For example, consider your moral values by reading "Do these California Republicans deserve to win or lose?" So you must do you own research to make informed decisions.

While SaveCalifornia.com does not support or oppose candidates, we provide links to voter guides that list candidates’ positions on issues and scorecards of elected representatives' votes. These links speak for themselves and do not represent the views or opinions of SaveCalifornia.com.

Here are your best, second-best, and third-best way to research candidates to see if they match your values:

1. Enjoy researching online

Your best research on candidates will be done by yourself. Google a candidate's name along with one search term at a time, such as: abortion, gay, LGBT, gun, taxes, parents, family, religious freedom, etc. Then visit candidate's websites for their specific positions on family and moral issues. And consider emailing the candidate to ask specific questions.

2. Learn from voting records and endorsements

Your second-best research is the actual votes cast by incumbent politicians.

Republican gubertorial candidates Travis Allen and John Cox: Abortion records
Due to public interest for these candidates and their abortion policies, here are some of the abortion-related abstentions of Travis Allen (in the California State Assembly since December 2012), and the stated abortion policies of John Cox (he's never held elective office, thus no legislative voting record). SaveCalifornia.com provides this solely for educational purposes and does not support or oppose candidates for public office. 

John Cox's several statements on abortion in 2007

Here's Travis Allen's record of abstaining on pro-abortion bills in the California State Assembly:

Four resolutions celebrating unlimited, taxpayer-funded abortions for any reason, at any age. Travis Allen abstained on all four:

3. Voter Guide Links

Carefully consider a few "pro-family" voter guides. But remember, if certain incumbents are portrayed as "pro-family" or recommend, check the filters above to see how they vote on the "LGBT" agenda.

Judges

There are strict constructionist judges and there are judicial activists. Do the judicial candidates on your ballot believe in upholding the written law (strict constructionists) or in "re-interpreting" the law to suit their personal agendas (judicial activists)?

Judge recommendations are few because of the heavy research requirements. However, the following sites contain some helpful judge information for you to peruse. SaveCalifornia.com provides this solely for educational purposes and does not support or oppose these candidates:
