The most important election of our lifetime is just a few short weeks away.We hear that saying every four years, but this election is different.
We are being presented with two very contrasting views of the direction our country should take. One is to maintain this path towards socialism and the ever growing government control on every aspect of our lives. The alternative view embraces capitalism and plans to decrease the influence of the federal government in citizens lives while rebuilding our reputation on the international scene.
We shouldn’t be voting as Republicans or Democrats, but as Christians. It needs to be an election where we vote righteously and not on popularity.
President: Mitt Romney
Can a Christian vote for Mitt Romney even though he’s a Mormon?
Of course they can.
Especially when his opponent, a supposed Evangelical, is for redefining the sanctity of marriage and has condoned the murder of unborn babies through abortion.
I think Mike Huckabee said it best in this video clip.
The Democrats even booed the addition of God to their party platform at the DNC. Video
Obama’s policies are clearly anti Christian. If fact, they are anti freedom of religion. The war against the Catholic Church, forcing them to give out contraception, is a prime example of that (link)
Besides all that, the economy is in shambles and we have fewer jobs than we did four years ago with no signs of significant improvement.
America is being presented with two distinct different paths. Mitt Romney is the best choice for America.
Senate: Elizabeth Emken
Wake up California. It’s time to retire Dianne Feinstein.
It’s time for some new blood to go to Washington D.C. that can get some serious reform done.
Elizabeth Emken was my choice in my primary voter guide and she is my choice now.
She supports a balanced budget, would have voted against the stimulus and Obamacare and supports tax reform to lower the burden on small businesses. Feinstein is a career politician with no new ideas. She has proven this by her refusal to debate Emken.
It’s time for a change and we need to send Emken to the Senate.
Vote No on Prop 30: Gov. Jerry Brown Tax Hike
As a CSU student, I will be hit with higher tuition fees if Prop. 30 fails, but I’m still voting no.
Prop. 30 adds $50 billion in new taxes, but no money is mandated to go to education.
It’s just another attempt by California Democrats to raise taxes by using education as a crutch.
If we want to solve the budget problem in California, lawmakers need to take the budget line-by-line and do some serious cutting to the many wasteful programs our taxpayer dollars go to. Here is a great article on the wasteful spending happening in California.
Cutting wasteful spending is the only way to keep tuition affordable at colleges and universities.
Proponents to this prop are touting it as a billionaires tax. And while it will raise income tax for only those making over $250,000, it will also raise the state sales tax by 1/4 percent. So it’s a tax on everyone, not just on the very rich.
Vote No on Prop 31: Two-Year Budget Cycle
I strongly encourage my conservative friends to do their research before voting on this proposition.
The language is very misleading.
The proposition sounds really good and even has the endorsement of the state GOP. It will establish a two-year budget cycle, prohibits the legislature from creating expenditures over $25 million unless offsetting or making cuts. It would also permit the governor to cut unilaterally during fiscal emergencies if the legislature fails to act.
But upon further examination, Prop 31 would also destroy the free market. It strengthens government control by creating what the United Nations calls Agenda 21.
What it will do is strengthen government, Hurt businesses and use climate control as the reason to grow the ever increasing regulation in California.
Here is a great article on why the East Bay Tea Party has decided not to endorse Prop 31.
Vote Yes on Prop 32: Ban on Union Contributions to State and Local Candidates
Prop. 32 cuts the ties between special interest groups and politicians. It will ban unions and corporations to candidates. It also stops all payroll withholding for political purposes and makes it an opt in voluntary program.
Vote Yes on Prop 33: Car Insurance Rates
Californians with car insurance earn a discount for following the law. But if you switch companies you lose the discount. Proposition 33 allows you the freedom to change insurance companies and keep your discount. Proposition 33 makes insurance companies compete, helps lower rates, and will insure more drivers
Vote No on Prop 34: Death Penalty Review
California is broke. Prop. 34 costs taxpayers $100 million over four years and many millions more, long term. Taxpayers would pay at least $50,000 annually, giving lifetime healthcare/housing to killers who tortured, raped, and murdered children, cops, mothers, and fathers. DA’s, Sheriffs and Police Chiefs say Vote No.
Vote Yes on Prop 35: The CASE Act
STOP HUMAN TRAFFICKING. PREVENT THE SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN. Traffickers force women and children to sell their bodies on the streets and online. Prop. 35 fights back, with tougher sentencing, help for victims, protections for children online. Trafficking survivors; children’s and victims’ advocates urge: YES on 35.
Vote No on Prop 36: Amending 3 strikes law
Proposition 36 will release dangerous criminals from prison who were sentenced to life terms because of their long criminal history. The initiative is so flawed some of these felons will be released without any supervision! Join California’s Sheriffs, Police, Prosecutors, and crime victims groups in voting No on Proposition 36.
Vote Yes on 37: Mandatory Labeling
Proposition 37 gives us the right to know what is in the food we eat and feed to our families. It simply requires labeling of food produced using genetic engineering, so we can choose whether to buy those products or not. We have a right to know.
Vote No on Prop 38: Income Tax increase on all Californians
If you earn $17,346 per year in taxable income, your taxes increase. Total of $120 BILLION in higher taxes. No requirements to improve student performance. Can’t be changed for 12 years even for fraud. Damages small business. Kills jobs. Educators, taxpayers and businesses say No on 38.
Vote No on Prop 39: Income Tax increase on multistate businesses
Proposition 39 is a massive $1 billion tax increase on California job creators that employ tens of thousands of middle class workers. It’s a recipe for waste and corruption, giving Sacramento politicians a blank check to spend billions without real accountability. California is billions in debt; 39 makes it worse.
Vote Yes on Prop 40: Redistricting State Senate Districts
Yes on 40 protects the State Senate maps drawn by the voter-approved Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission. Yes on 40 upholds the will of California voters to hold politicians accountable by keeping them out of the redistricting process. Good government groups, seniors, businesses and taxpayers recommend “Yes on 40.”
