As a California conservative, politics are almost invariably less than “happy.”
A conservative trying to be happy in the People’s Republic of California is rather like like trying to be “Happy” in Iran; we just don’t get to be.
Even when the people vote our way, some fascist liberal judge dictates that the will of the people WILL NOT be respected. As an example, TWICE now, with Proposition 22 and again with Proposition 8, a judge has overturned the clear will of the people and acted like an ayatollah. Progressive liberal activists exploited the donor lists as well as their own innate fascism to pursue a vendetta of political thuggery against Prop 8 donors. And of course we just saw that hard-core leftist fascism demonstrated again when a CEO who had helped build a major company was destroyed because he foolishly thought he had a right to donate to political issues that he believed in (and see here).
So, yeah, as a California conservative, I know that things will rarely ever work out the way I want them to.
And therefore, I’m willing – eager even – to compromise if I can at least have some of my core priorities maintained.
But that won’t happen in California. Or California would stop being California, wouldn’t it?
We’ve got our primaries coming up and there are two candidates for governor on the ballot to oppose Democrat Jerry Brown in November.
One of them is – by most media accounts – a rabid nutjob who is a racist, who hates immigrants and who has an unnatural love of guns. The other one is a “moderate” who celebrates homosexual marriage and the right of women to kill their babies with those children’s fathers being denied any rights to their children whatsoever.
Turnout in June is expected to be far older, more white and more conservative than the overall California electorate, posing additional challenges for moderate candidates like Kashkari, who supports gay marriage and abortion rights.
Concern over Donnelly’s emergence prompted businessman Bill Bloomfield to put $142,000 into an independent expenditure campaign for Kashkari. Bloomfield quit the GOP in 2011 over what he saw as extremist views.
So do I vote for the whackjob conservative or the baby-murdering sodomite worshiper? Decisions, decisions.
I’m not a fan of Donnelly. I think he’s an inferior candidate at best. But at least I don’t have to participate in two of the most grievous sins in order to vote for the guy.
It’s not exactly a happy pace to be. So Iran doesn’t have to worry about my “Happy” video. There will be no Snoopy dancing for conservatives in California.
Do you know why California is going to have a truly disastrous “wrath of God” style earthquake soon? Because it will deserve it. We’re already experiencing the wrath of God in the form of devastating drought.
Let me tell you who I am going to vote for in the primary, California Republican Party. I’m going to vote for the guy who ISN’T a baby-murdering sodomite worshiper.
There are a lot of hills that as a conservative I’m not willing to die on. I’m willing, for instance, to support a candidate who favors immigration policies that I would rather not see implemented. Because I would just like to have somebody who represents me at least a little bit on the issues I most care about.
But I will NOT violate my conscience.
I am NOT going to add my name to the list of people who are directly, personally responsible for the murder of more than 55 million innocent human beings since 1973. I’m just not.
I am NOT going to add my name to the list of people who are defying God to impose His wrath according to Romans Chapter One. I’m just not.
That is why I am NOT going to cast my vote for Neel Kashkari. I am not going to vote for him now in the primary and I am not going to vote for him if he is the candidate in November. I am not going to be put in a position where I am saying, “Hmm. This baby-murdering sodomite worshiper isn’t quite as bad as this baby-murdering sodomite worshiper.”
I’ve been amazed at Neel Kashkari’s ads. He keeps calling himself a “conservative.” Like that means ANYTHING when a guy like him is saying it. And his ads keep announcing “I’m not a politician.” Nope – you are just desperate to BECOME one. But you’ve already sold your soul.
I understand that Donnelly doesn’t have a chance in hell of winning. Because California has BECOME hell and will soon surely burn in hell due to it’s wrath-of-God drought as it collapses into the ocean due to its wrath-of-God earthquake.
The funny thing is that in spite of ALL the big money going to Kashkari, Donnelly is STILL well ahead of the leftist “moderate” RINO in the polls. So it doesn’t look like Kashkari has much of a chance of winning, either, does it?
I’m just writing this to the so-called “moderates” who want to expand the Republican Party base. There are issues you can “expand” on and there are issues you can’t and hope to keep voters like me WHO CAN BE COUNTED UPON TO GO OUT AND VOTE. The Republican Party platform very clearly states that the Republican Party is pro-life – which means anti-abortion – and pro-marriage – which means anti-homosexual marriage. Don’t betray the foundation of the party to “reach out” to people who will ultimately end up voting for the other side, anyway.
Abortion and the perversion of marriage are my two hills to die on. And that is going to remain true even as I watch the American people and the people of California become increasingly wicked in these last days just as the Bible warned me would happen.
DO NOT THINK THAT I (OR CONSERVATIVES LIKE ME) WILL BE WILLING TO PUT ASIDE MY CONSCIENCE IN ORDER TO SUPPORT SOMEBODY JUST BECAUSE THERE IS AN ‘R’ IN PARENTHESES AFTER HIS OR HER NAME. THAT AINT GOING TO HAPPEN.
If Neel Kashari wins, I will leave my ballot blank for governor. And that’s a promise from a guy who truly is NOT a politician.
