Recall math: How to get a good governor

Do you want a good governor again?

Given the qualification of Gavin Newsom Recall petition signatures, the evidence of tremendous harm done by this governor to California families, and the fact that Newsom is a true Democrat reflecting the unconstitutional insanity of his party, a constitutional, good governor will be the opposite of Newsom.

In the expected Fall 2021 recall election, Ballot 1 will be yes or no on firing Newsom, and Ballot 2 will be all the candidates who want to replace him as governor. And on the second ballot, the candidate receiving the most votes (a plurality) will win.

Which presents a challenge for California conservatives, since there is a leading liberal “Republican,” who’s a former big-city mayor, on Ballot 2. This “socially liberal” man, who’s marched in “LGBTQIA+” parades and supported awarding U.S. citizenship to illegal aliens, has already received the most endorsements of Republican state legislators. Did they know what they were endorsing?

Therefore, the only way to elect a true conservative is for California conservatives to rally behind the strongest conservative. Remember, a constitutional, good governor is someone you can trust to veto ALL the bad bills the Democrat-controlled State Legislature puts on his desk.

The problem is real, because with multiple “conservatives” running, they’re apt to split the conservative vote, which would propel the liberal “Republican” to victory. Consider the 2003 recall election, when liberal “Republican” Arnold Schwarzenegger deceived many conservatives (he signed bills imposing school sexual indoctrination and gave Californians a big tax hike and the elimination of party primaries).

Let’s do the math. Consider a scenario where two conservative candidates receive 30% and 25%. But the split conservative vote (totaling 55%) hands the victory to the liberal “Republican,” who wins with 35%. So, if you don’t want kick yourself later, calculate correctly now. If you want a constitutional, good governor, you can’t split conservative voters, and you must only support the leading conservative candidate (so he can be the top vote-getter). Because the hard math tells us minor conservative candidates will only help the liberal “Republican” win, by draining votes from the leading conservative.

Some of you want to know how I’ll vote. Well, I can tell you my standards for voting on the second ballot, which will contain many candidates who want to replace Newsom. I will vote for a candidate who:

  1. Has reliable moral, social, fiscal, conservative, constitutional values
  2. Is not a homosexual or transsexual (which is antithetical to the above values)
  3. Can win (acknowledged this September to be one of the three leading candidates)

To help you start your own research, here’s information on the top three declared candidates, in alphabetical order:

Ontheissues.org database reports John Cox is a “Hard-Core Conservative”
Unreliable Wikipedia describes Kevin Faulconer’s liberal social issues
Ontheissues.org database reports Doug Ose is a “Moderate Libertarian Conservative” 

Quite practically, a constitutional, good governor is somebody you trust to veto ALL the bad bills that the Democrat-controlled Legislature sends to his desk.

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan…
The king establishes the land by justice,
But he who receives bribes overthrows it.

Newsom recall decisively qualifies

Finally!

The California Secretary of State has officially recognized the reports of California’s 58 county registrars of voters that they’ve received 2,162,774 signatures on petitions to recall Gavin Newsom, and that 1,626,042 of these signatures are valid. And that’s the April 19 count, with another report due April 29.

This means success for the petition drive to qualify for the ballot the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom, assuming there aren’t 131,000 valid signers who change their minds and get their signatures removed by June 8. After that, it’s a steady march toward a special statewide election in November. Yet the hard part now is having the good, moral character to replace Newsom with a constitutional, good governor.

And I have to tell you, I’m concerned that otherwise conservative Californians will go with their emotions, with hearsay, and not their principles, and not with facts. That’s what happened in the 2003 recall of Democrat Gray Davis, when too many conservatives preferred social liberal Arnold Schwarzenegger over the mostly conservative Tom McClintock. Then, as governor, Schwarzenegger signed awful, sexual indoctrination bills, and placed tax hikes and the elimination of party primaries on the statewide ballot.

Some of you want to know how I’ll vote. Well, I can tell you my standards for voting on the second ballot, which will contain many candidates who want to replace Newsom. I will vote for a candidate who:

1. Has reliable moral, social, fiscal, conservative, constitutional values
2. Is not a homosexual or transsexual (which is antithetical to the above values)
3. Can win (acknowledged this September to be one of the three leading candidates)

To help you start researching, here’s information on the top four declared candidates to replace Newsom:

Ontheissues.org database reports John Cox is a “Right Conservative”
Unreliable Wikipedia describes Kevin Faulconer’s social issues
Ontheissues.org database reports Doug Ose is a “Moderate Libertarian Conservative”
Campaign website policy page of Major Williams

Quite practically, a constitutional, good governor is somebody you trust to veto ALL the bad bills that the Democrat-controlled Legislature sends to his desk.

2.1 million signatures filed

When the final signatures for the recall of Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom were turned in with California county registrars of voters on March 17, the Recall Gavin Newsom campaign reported 2,117,730 total signatures were filed. What a historic civic achievement.

Hypothetically, if there’s a 75% validity rate, this means 1,588,297 valid signatures, which would be 92,588 valid signatures above the minimum number needed, which is 1,495,709 valid signatures. So I’ll bet money this will be on the ballot this fall.

I want to remind you how important it is to vote your values. Remember the 2003 California recall election when many conservatives chose social-liberal Arnold Schwarzenegger over rock-solid conservative Tom McClintock? Don’t vote for personality or non-policy issues, but vote for someone who’ll consistently veto every bad bill (most all of them) passed by the Democrat-controlled State Legislature.

At this time, your main “Republican” choices are (there are other minor candidates), according to the public-policy records of “On the Issues” are: Ric Grenell, a homosexual “married to a man” (no legislative record); two half-conservatives: “Moderate” Kevin Faulconer, and Doug Ose, a “Moderate” who leans conservative; and “Hard-Core Conservative” John Cox. Will moral conservatives rally around one candidate to replace Newsom to represents their values? If so, the math says that candidate can win the necessary plurality on the second question on the recall ballot, even with 30-35% support.

“‘Choose wise, understanding, and knowledgeable men from among your tribes, and I will make them heads over you.’ … Then I commanded your judges at that time, saying, ‘Hear the cases between your brethren, and judge righteously between a man and his brother or the stranger who is with him. You shall not show partiality in judgment; you shall hear the small as well as the great; you shall not be afraid in any man’s presence, for the judgment is God’s.”
Deuteronomy 1:13,16-17
