12 propositions on California's November 3, 2020 ballot:

This fall in California, you'll have the chance to vote for law and order and against crime in California. The 3 good propositions are Prop. 20, 22, and 25 (but you have to vote "no" on 25 to "pass" this referendum on SB 10). 

Here are SaveCalifornia.com's initial recommendations and  brief analyses of the 12 statewide propositions on California's 2020 general election ballot:

Prop. 14 NO: $7.8 BILLION in taxpayer dollars for more research on embryonic stem cell (from aborted babies), which has been an utter, unethical failure. No more of our money!

Prop. 15 NO: As much as $12.5 BILLION every year in higher property taxes imposed upon owners of commercial and industrial properties, and costs handed down to tenants.

Prop. 16 NO: Would permit every government entity in California to engage in race- and sex-based discrimination in employment, schools, and public contracts. Eliminates Prop. 209 from 1996, which eliminated so-called "affirmative action" in California.

Prop. 17 NO: Permits voting by as many as 40,000 convicted criminals who were released early (paroled) by Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom and the Democrat-run California Legislature. Is there any question of how these criminal minds would vote?

Prop. 18 NO: Permits 17-year-olds to vote in California primary elections. Deemed a child and legally irresponsible, giving them the privilege of voting is unnecessary and foolish.

Prop. 19 NO: Would hike property taxes by as much as $2 BILLION per year. These new taxes would be imposed on property transferred between parents and their children, mostly done through inheritance. Prop. 19 would abolish both Proposition 58 from 1986 (excludes from property tax reassessment most transfers between parents and children) and Proposition 193 from 1996 (if parents are dead, excludes from property tax reassessment most transfers between grandparents and grandchildren) unless recipient children live in the property as their primary residence for at least one year. Overall, this proposed constitutional amendment is part good and part bad. While stealing from family wealth, Prop. 19 also offers significant property tax protection to Californians ages 55+ who sell one primary residence and buy another anywhere in the state (current law only provides this 55+ protection for same-county transfers). Yet Democrat politicians put this on the ballot to grab a lot of money from families, so please vote no.

Prop. 20 YES: The tough on crime statutory initiative would restrict early parole for more violent crimes, and would permit more mostly non-violent crimes to be treated as felonies, rather than misdemeanors. This initiative would reverse much of the damage of foolish Propositions 47 and 57, along with the Democrat state legislators' AB 109, all of which kept criminal minds out of jail, out of prison, and in our communities.

Prop. 21 NO: We've been here before when voters rejected statewide rent control in 2018. Rent control motivates more landlords to sell, which results in fewer rentals and higher rents, thus hurting more California individuals and families. Want to lower rent in California? Vote to eliminate or lower developer fees, prohibit environmental thresholds and lawsuits that are strangling many developers, and deport illegal aliens who have dramatically increased housing demand. All these ills are the Democrat politicians' doings.

Prop. 22 YES: The Democrat politicians are constantly destroying jobs and businesses, which is the socialistic, communistic way. Last year, the ruling Democrats passed AB 5 to eliminate much of the freedoms independent contractors previously enjoyed. So the popular app-based driving and delivery businesses DoorDash, Lyft, Uber, Instacart, and Postmates combined to qualify for the ballot a statutory initiative to exempt their drivers from AB 5, permitting them to continue working with flexibility as independent contractors. Although this initiative won't protect all Californians, it would restore the liberties of some, which is still good.

Prop. 23 NO: We've also been here in 2018, when California voters rejected heavy regulation of outpatient kidney dialysis clinics. This is life-saving treatment and the most outpatient clinics for people in need, the better. Yet Prop. 23 would have the effect of financially shutting down many small clinics, reducing treatment, and losing lives.

Prop. 24 STILL STUDYING: This proposition would increase privacy of personal information for online consumers. We're still researching whether the penalties are just or unjust, and whether the greater growth of state enforcement is wise or dangerous.

Prop. 25 NO: This referendum to keep the cash bail system, if successful, will ensure most accused criminals show up their court hearings, instead of skipping town. The referendum aims to protect the bail system, which was eliminated by the Democrat-controlled California Legislature in 2018. Yet the private-company bail agents, threatened with extinction, worked hard to collect signatures to place the Democrats' bad law on hold. So keep and protect the bail system, you'll need to vote NO in order to "veto" the Legislature's SB 10, which is our recommendation.

There's a lot to vote on this election. Please help others with good values register to vote this summer!

SaveCalifornia.com provides the following solely for educational purposes. Since 2000, our pro-family, pro-child organization has taken positions on ballot measures, yet our nonprofit status does not permit us to support or oppose candidates for public office.


There is only one statewide proposition is on California's March 3, 2020 ballot. You need to know that Proposition 13, placed on the ballot by the California Legislature, is deceptive, wasteful, and harmful.

Proposition 13 NO

A $27 BILLION money grab that won't improve academics

Ironically, this measure, which was placed on the ballot by the Democrat-controlled California State Legislature, is named Proposition 13. While this is the same number as the historic property tax protection approved by California voters in 1978, this new measure deserves your opposition.

SaveCalifornia.com wants you to know this is a $27 BILLION money grab by the grossly wasteful education establishment. Remember, you can't trust the government education system -- they don't teach children rigorous academics, but brainwash impressionable boys and girls with a raft of harmful sexual indoctrination. Stop and realize that around 75% of children in California public schools are not taught how to read, write, or compute at a proficient level. More money won't solve this problem of having an unloving, corrupt education establishment run by the government unions.

Notice who's supporting Prop. 13: Union bosses and educrats who make it their constant goal to take your money and children and give you terrible results. They don't want you to remember they've already hit you with FOUR "state general obligation bonds for education" between 2002 and 2016. Are children scoring better than 10 or 15 years ago? No, they're not. The educrats and union bosses have gotten richer, but children are being dumbed down and sexually indoctrinated.

Along with SaveCalifornia.com, opposing Prop. 13 are taxpayer advocates who are very familiar with government thievery. From their opposition ballot argument:

"Borrowing $15 billion for school construction and repairs makes no sense when California has a $22 billion budget surplus. What's worse, the 80% estimated interest cost [in other words, a direct tax hike would be cheaper] means we're actually on the hook for $27 billion ... don't let Sacramento's misplaced priorities and irresponsible borrowing put California deeper in debt and lead to higher local taxes." Source

Another big problem is that Prop. 13 permits future local bonds to assess your property at a rate that is SIXTY PERCENT HIGHER than currently. As the taxpayer advocates against Prop. 13 note: "Local school districts will go further into debt."A hidden provision of this proposition will encourage local school districts to increase their borrowing by more than 60%. Local school debt is paid back with higher property taxes. We're already paying a fortune for previous borrowing, and the problem is never fixed."

But even more than money, what does giving more power to the education establishment actually do to children? Over the last few decades, more money for public schools has not resulted in academic competency (remember, around three-fourths of children in California K-12 schools can't read, write, or compute at a proficient level). Will any of this "Prop. 13 money" go toward teaching children rigorous academics? No, not at all.

What's the evidence that today's government schools don't teach children the basics? Here are the latest percentages of California 4th and 8th graders who are NOT proficient in core subjects, according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), known as "The Nation's Report Card":

4th grade math: 73% not proficient
8th grade math: 81% not proficient
4th grade reading: 76% not proficient
8th grade reading: 74% not proficient
4th grade science: 76% not proficient
8th grade science: 78% not proficient
4th grade writing: 77% not proficient
8th grade writing: 75% not proficient

Add to this 11 statewide sexual indoctrination laws and negative peer pressure affecting every public school student in California. You have to ask yourself, why vote to fund and strengthen those who dumb down, indoctrinate, and ruin our children?

Because Proposition 13 only furthers this non-academic, anti-family agenda.

Not convinced yet that "public schools" have turned against you? Consider what the pro-abortion, pro-perversity ACLU of California says: "...parents do not have the right to dictate what curriculum is used or what information is provided to students in public schools. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has ruled that parents do not have any constitutional right 'to prevent a public school from providing its students with whatever information it wishes to provide, sexual or otherwise, when and as the school determines that it is appropriate to do so.'"

Why to oppose all 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 entrenched bureaucrats, 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 with interest, which is always more expensive than a direct tax), 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. 


SaveCalifornia.com works solely for educational purposes and does not support or oppose candidates, therefore you must decide yourself who to support on your ballot. To help you, here are answers to relevant questions from pro-family Californians:

Q: Can I trust the "Republican voter guide" or "Democrat voter guide" sent to me in the mail?
A: No, you really shouldn't.
Because "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 include pro-perversity Republicans as recommended "pro-family" candidates.

Q: Are there any pro-life or pro-family Democrat candidates left in California?
A: Not to our our knowledge. We don't know of any candidates within the "Democratic"/"Green"/Peace and Freedom" parties who are pro-life for preborn babies and pro-family against the immoral "LGBTQIA+" agenda. Even in conservative "red states," pro-life-on-abortion Democrat candidates are being rubbed out. Saying there's no room for anti-abortion candidates in the Democratic Party are DNC Chair Tom Perez and Democrat presidential candidates Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren.

Q: Which parties or candidates in California are reliably pro-life and pro-family?
A: It's getting harder to know, since truly pro-family candidates are rarer these days.
From our observations, among the "Republican"/"American Independent"/"Libertarian" parties in California, we've determined that generally supporting traditional moral values are usually always "American Independent" candidates, most of the time "Republican" candidates, and some of the time "Libertarian" and "no party preference" candidates. Yet in the last several years, we've definitely seen more Republican and Libertarians candidates that support the immoral, unhealthy, tyrannical "LGBTQIA+" agenda.

Q: Who are the anti-family Republicans on my ballot?
A: We report and you decide. For example, in 2017, four California Republican U.S. Representatives joined the House Democrats in voting to continue making Americans pay for "sex changes" in the U.S. military. Two of these Republicans -- Steve Knight and Darrell Issa -- are running again this year. In 2019, in the California State Legislature, 6 Republican state assemblymen joined the ruling Democrats in approving "LGBTQIA+" agenda bills: 
Phillip Chen of Diamond Bar, Jordan Cunningham of San Luis Obispo, Tyler Diep of Westminster, Tom Lackey of Palmdale, Chad Mayes of Yucca Valley, and Jay Obernolte of Big Bear Lake; so did 3 Republican state senators: Scott Wilk of Santa Clarita, Ling Ling Chang of Diamond Bar, Jim Nielsen of Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Tehama and Yuba counties. See the bills and their votes. Most of these are up for reelection or running for other offices.

You must also independently research brand-new candidates as well as incumbents and former elected officials who are running again (instructions below). To use an example, Republican Young Kim of Fullerton is re-running for Congress. But how many Republican voters know that, when in the California State Assembly, Kim voted yes in 2016 to tear down “men,” “women,” “boys,” and “girls” signs at all single-user restrooms statewide, or that, in 2015, Kim coauthored a resolution promoting homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality, opposing reserving marriage for a man and a woman, and "eradicating" any and all opposition to "LGBT" behavior? This gives you an idea why you need to do online searches on the candidates, using the additional search words, such as "gay," "lesbian," "LGBT," etc.

Q: What can I do to generate more votes?
A: You can "multiply votes" via web, email, social media, and leafletting. Imagine helping hundreds of people vote for what's right in God's sight. You can do your own research and publish your own documented voter guide, then distribute it via a web page, blog, email, and social media. You can also print it up on a full or half sheet of paper (both sides) to place on windshields of local churches. Please reach out to SaveCalifornia.com for assistance. When you call 916-265-5650, just leave a message with a good time to call you back, and we'll call you to answer your questions and equip you.

Q: Is SaveCalifornia.com providing links to pro-family voter guides this election?
A: No, because so-called "pro-family" voter guides are recommending anti-family Republicans. In reviewing the handful of conservative, "pro-family" voter guides for California's March 3, 2020 election, we're seeing glaring inconsistencies. How can these "pro-family" guides recommend Republican candidates who support the anti-family, "LGBTQIA+" agenda? Instead of linking to other organizations' voter guides, SaveCalifornia.com has provided you with helpful voting perspectives and practical tips to empower you research the candidates on your ballot.

Q: What about the judges on the ballot?
At this time, we're only linking to this well-researched judge voter guide, which has been updated for some, but not all, of California's 58 counties (updated counties seem to be Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, San Diego, and Fresno). This guide speaks for itself and does not represent the views or opinions of SaveCalifornia.com.


In just a few minutes, you can usually find out what you want to know about a particular candidate. Here's how to research candidates to see if they match your values:

1. Simple steps to research candidates

Your best research on candidates will be done by yourself. Google a candidate's name along with other search terms. For example, if you want to search John Smith for State Assembly and his position on sexual perversity, enter John Smith, Assembly, California, LGBT. Poke around and you just might find his position on the "LGBT" agenda. 

Examples of other terms you might wish to search with the candidate's name and the position he or she is seeking are: abortion, gay, gun, taxes, parents, family, religious freedom, border, impeachment, etc.

You should also visit candidates' 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 key votes cast by incumbent politicians. Provided for you below are links to help you know whether a candidate is genuinely pro-family or not. The best way to determine that is by discovering how they've voted or will vote on "LGBTQIA+" issues. See for yourself: 

•  See candidates who support the homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda:
» Equality California: "Our Endorsements"

•  In 2019, these Republican California state legislators joined the supermajority ruling Democrats in voting in favor of "LGBTQIA+" bills: Republican state assemblymembers Phillip Chen, Jordan Cunningham, Tyler Diep, Tom Lackey, Chad Mayes, and Jay Obernolte; Republican state senators Scott Wilk, Ling Ling Chang, and Jim Nielsen. » SaveCalifornia: "2019 Legislative Center"

•  In 2018 in the California State Legislature, a combination of 77 legislators in the Assembly and Senate voted in favor of AB 2943 to ban professional counseling for individuals who want to overcome homosexuality or transexuality, and which unconstitutionally threatened the free speech and religious freedom of churches.
» See the 75 Democrats and 2 Republicans

•  In 2018 in the California State Legislature, nearly all the Democrats, along with 12 Republicans, voted in favor of mandatory "in-service training" of K-12 schoolteachers to further brainwash schoolchildren with the unnatural, unhealthy, tyrannical "LGBT" agenda. On this issue, these Democrats and Republicans are to the left of Governor Jerry Brown, who vetoed AB 2153.

See SaveCalifornia.com's Sept. 30, 2018 news release on the veto of AB 2153

See AB 2153 official legislator voting records:

Voting yes for AB 2153 on the Assembly floor were 54 Democrats + 4 Republicans:
Catharine Baker
Rocky Chávez
Jordan Cunningham
Brian Maienschein

Voting yes for AB 2153 on the Senate floor were 26 Democrats + 8 Republicans:
Patricia Bates
Anthony Cannella
Ling Ling Chang
Ted Gaines
Janet Nguyen
Jeff Stone
Andy Vidak
Scott Wilk

•  In 2017 in the U.S. House of Representatives, 24 Republicans joined the Democrats in voting against good legislation that would have prohibited funding for "sex change" treatments and surgeries in the U.S. military. Among them, the pro-transsexuality Republicans in California are or were:

California Rep. Paul Cook
California Rep. Jeff Denham
California Rep. Steve Knight
California Rep. Darrell Issa

•  In 2016 in the California State Legislature, 51 Democrats and 4 Republicans voted to tear off "men," "women," "boys," and "girls" restroom signs

•  In 2015 in the California Legislature, 16 Republicans voted to celebrate and promote "Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender": » See the 16 Republicans

Democrats & Republicans In Their Own Words

Every political party has an official Party Platform, a written document that's the most reliable indicator of how that party's candidates will vote as elected representatives. The party platforms tell you what to expect, but not as much as a candidate's voting records or specific public promises. "In Their Own Words" is eye-opening:
