Congratulations to Mitt Romney on his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate. President Obama has declared that this election is about “two fundamentally different visions” for America. Goodness, he’s got that right. Our country cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama’s fundamentally flawed vision. We must now look to this new team, the Romney/Ryan ticket, to provide an alternate vision of an America that is fiscally responsible, strong, and prosperous – an America that understands and is proud of her exceptional place in the world and will respect those who fight to secure that exceptionalism, which includes keeping our promises to our veterans.
When I think about the direction our country is rapidly drifting in, I can’t help but look at California as a cautionary tale. The Golden State once boasted the entrepreneurial innovation of Silicon Valley, the American creative engine of the arts, economically powerful and beautiful cities from San Francisco to San Diego, and fertile farmlands that helped feed the nation. Now it is descending into financial ruin accompanied by an exodus of middle class Californians leaving for other states. As one writer put it, California’s “fastest-growing entity is government and its biggest product is red tape.”
Obama’s vision for America will make the rest of the country look like California, minus the beautiful scenery and warm weather. . . . . . . see her full remarks at Facebook, here.
Editor's note: I was born and raised in California and have watched the Democrat majority ruin this state. That "cliff" everyone is talking about? Well, here in California, we have already fallen over the edge. We are just waiting to hit bottom.
Sarah's Facebook comments establish or confirm two things: one is her serious approval of the Romney/Ryan ticket and (two), her condemnation of California politics. In her Facebook article, she makes the case for the devolution of our financial national health, illustrating her criticism with a comparison of national politics under the current radicalized Democrat Party to the ill health of California. Understand that there are Democrats and, then, there are the Commies in that party. Call them "collectivists" or "One Worlders," or whatever; for certain they hate "profit," the business community, limits on spending and borders. Sounds familiar? Ooooh, you betcha!!
And the L.A. Times is mad and pouting about her comments. Rather than referring to Sarah as "the Governor," they begin their assault with "the reality television star," doing what they can to diminish her reputation and opinion.
Problem: they know that the current GOP ticket is makes her the new "reality star" of Conservative politics.
Here in California, I do everything I can to protest the current political clime driven by the tent people and hippies within our state's government.
When they declare a "power emergency," I run to my thermostatic and turn it down to 65 . . . .. seriously. I actually hope that my singular effort will crash the power grid and send this state into darkness. Understand that here in California, our "power crisis" is wholly, man made. We stopped building damns and underground water recharging basins more than 35 years ago. I have stopped "conserving" water in protest.
Those twisting light bulbs? I am thinking that if someone ran into a public square, whether City Hall, or a post office or whatever, and threw a box of broken twisties onto the floor, we might begin a reasoned discussion on the issue. Twisties are full of mercury and require hazmat procedures in a clean-up. Can you imagine this? When you break one of these things in your home, you are risking life and limb in your clean-up.
When they declare a drought emergency in this state, I begin to water my lawn non-stop, again hoping to take down a system of regulations, bringing attention to the fact that water, rain water, is a renewal energy source. All we have to do is capture this water in a sensible manner, and, until that happens, my lawn is the greenest in the neighborhood.
So let Sarah criticize California. Her opposition offers absolutely nothing substantively as they disagree.
