Meg Whitman, Kings or Queens or Oligharchies

The next governor of California will be a re-tread in Jerry Brown or a RINO in Meg Whitman. Meg Whitman spent 80 million dollars to win the Republican primary for Governor in California for a job that pays $212179. Why? She was endorsed by the RINO Newt Gingrich, who is positioning himself to run for president in 2012. King Michael Bloomberg of New York spent over 100 million dollars and convinced the New York legislators to make an exception for him to run for a third term as mayor of New York City. These people are buying elections; it is all about power and control. I do not believe America needs to have Kings or Queens or oligharchies to run our government.

She said the only time she voted in her life was in 1984 for George H. W. Bush, although it was Ronald Reagan who was running for president in 1984. Did she really vote then? She clarified her voting record by saying, “Like many Americans…I missed too many elections. I voted in the 1984 election in California, I remember it very clearly… the last president I voted for was George Bush Senior, then John McCain, obviously.” When asked for an explanation as to why she did not participate in the election process she had no explanation except to say she was wrong for not voting all those years.

Whitman’s position on immigration is the same as President Barack Obama. She is against the Arizona law, wants to secure the borders, go after the employers who hire illegal immigrants, with fines and possible loss of licenses and closing the business for subsequent violations. As for the illegal immigrants that are here she wants to fine them, have them learn to speak English and get to the back of the line, but she does not want to deport them. If she does not want to deport them I ask, “Where is the back of the line?” You do not reward people for bad behavior. The illegal immigrants need to be deported.

She also is an admirer of Van Jones stating “he is very bright, very articulate. I’m a huge fan of his,” even though he is an admitted communist and an ex czar of the Obama administration. Van Jones now went underground and no longer openly calls himself a Communist stating to drop the radical pose for the radical ends; instead he calls himself an environmentalist. Van Jones spoke at an American Future Now conference and said, “The opportunity to recognize that a government movement is three things. It’s top down, you handled that. You got the White House, the Senate and the House. You handled the top down- but it is also bottom up and inside out. Top down, bottom up and inside out. So, now your challenge as you leave here-our challenge is to take care of that bottom up part and that inside out part, the heart part. That’s where we are at now and we have the chance as we move forward to take the old admonition from the South African movement and govern from below.” …”I think that when we look back at the history of the Obama administration, when we look back at the history of our progressive movement, that this week will mark an historic inflection point when progressives decided to be progressives again in this country. I think something shifted this week.” Was he talking about Whitman winning the primary?

The American people need to educate themselves and become informed about the people who want to run the government, because if you get the wrong people in power they will want to control you. Thomas Jefferson said, “Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty. Information is the currency of democracy.”
