If you are a registered republican you probably just received an email from Assemblyman James Gallagher. He opens by pushing all the right buttons. . .
“North State residents cannot afford their new $5.2 billion gas and car tax. Nor can we afford even more restrictive environmental regulations courtesy of SB 32. If that’s not bad enough, now they want to make California a ‘sanctuary state’. Enough is enough! If these out-of-touch legislators are going to double-down on job killing policies, then I am going to double-down on my efforts to replace them on Election Day. But I cannot win this fight alone. I need your help! (Hey, you’ve never been alone and you’ve not done squat yet, because you can’t.)
Please join me at Almendra Winery in Durham on August 17th to help raise the funding needed to elect representatives who share our values!” James Gallagher
Sorry, but this is just more of the standard old campaign BS being spread on us mushrooms.
Look folks, we don’t have the votes or the representation in Sacramento to change a thing, unless the democrats allow us. This is the way it is for now, the foreseeable future and probably for our lifetime.
CA is done, its over and democrats run everything.
Let me make this absolutely clear, if every republican in CA office followed Gallagher, we would still have nothing. The demographics belong to the democrats and not you nor the entire GOP is going to change that. If anything it is only going to get worse. We simply don’t have the votes to change a damn thing in Sacramento. So, what Mr. Gallagher said sounds nice, but in fact it means nothing.
GOP legislators might just as well stay home and save the gas.
Assemblyman Gallagher, if you feel guilty about taking a fat salary for doing next to nothing, why not try donating part of it to a local charity? I would admire that, because the peoples tax money would be better served.
It’s a proven fact: The vast majority of voters in CA don’t care about our GOP message. This is why every major office is held by a democrat. They control the Senate and the Assembly. The democrat representation just from Los Angeles is enough to block any GOP legislating coming from the North State. Could this picture be any more clear?
So, unless you (Assemblyman Gallagher) are for staying home and boycotting Sacramento, no, I’m not with you. I refuse to play the game and I believe this call for campaign money is just about one person’s future, yours.
Neither you, nor the entire lot of republicans in CA are going to reverse the sanctuary state status, repeal the gas tax, protect gun rights, preserve North State water or anything else near and dear to us conservatives. So, just tell it like it is, you might even feel better for being honest.
