California Dreaming...Turning Blue Back To Red
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on Right Side Patriots Radio
And it all started at the beginning of the month when Southern California residents pressured Governor Gaven Newsom to reopen parts of California most especially Orange county's beaches, and to ease up on the stay-at-home mandates...mandates intended, Newsom claimed, to help slow the spread of the virus, albeit mandates some health experts are now saying actually helped to increase the numbers of those sickened by COVID-19. In fact, two counties to Sacramento's north, Sutter and Yuba counties, are the ones who led that very fight against these draconian mandates after seeing many of their fellow small business owners that did take the chance on reopening in early May, receiving warnings and threats from Newsom's administration...threats that included phone calls and emails from the state board saying that if said businesses did not comply with state regulations then they will be forced to close down...yet again.
And the threats continued on as a good many of those small businesses that dared to open were beauty salons, barber shops, and nail salons, businesses whose owners are now being told by the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology that it may pursue disciplinary action against them if they remain open in spite of the fact that no one in either county has died of COVID-19 in over a month. But somehow I don't think any of those threatened closures will happen as too many Californians, just like those of us in red states, are sick and tired of being placed under what is akin to house arrest...too sick and too tired to ever allow American businesses to fall prey to any kind of mass shutdown ever again.
And if a liberal Democrat like Elon Musk is as disgusted as he is can other Democrats be far behind...I surely think not.
Just another little gem to add to the infamous gift delivered to us courtesy of Yuhan, China...a gift that we need to economically return to them tenfold, and do so post-haste.
So while it's now a few weeks past from when all the above cited happened, Californians are continuing to upset Newsom's apple cart in ways even he never expected...as in political ways he'd consider to be of the very worst kind...ways that just might help to someday turn “blue” California “red.” And while it will take time to do so...if it ever happens that is...it has to start somewhere...and simply...it has.
Translation: Republicans are starting to make inroads into the governing of this still overwhelmingly “blue” state.
Inroads indeed for on the same day that Melissa Melendez won her election, fellow Republican Mike Garcia, a U.S. Navy veteran, won his by defeating Democrat Christy Smith in another special election, this one for California’s 25th congressional district. And that's the very district formerly served by (rightfully) disgraced former Democratic Congresswoman Katie Hill, the woman forced to resign when a number photos of her in a hotel room with a young female staffer were published online, including a number of nude photos some of which showed her both holding a bong along with a tattoo of a Nazi iron cross near her groin while she was kissing the same female staffer. What tabloid and mainstream media fodder that story was.
And while Los Angeles itself is still gripped by fear in regards to COVID-19, Newsom's newest mandate could see the stay-at-home orders for L.A. possibly being extended through this summer or even, some say, until there is a cure. And so we will continue to see some Californian's up in arms...not literally of course as “blue” California is not the most firearm friendly state...for the reality is that if Governor Newsom does not follow suit what with even more states starting to loosen restrictions, California might actually not have an economy left to reopen. And that's something that surely will resonate with voters along with the fact that with California being home to twice as many Democrats as Republicans, you just know that Newsom and crew have even more taxes coming Californian's way, after all someone has to pay for his coronavirus economic screw-ups now don't they.
And why is that...because with the likes of far to the left Governor Gavin Newsom, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Rep. Adam Schiff continuing to hold sway over a state that while it has so much to offer now sadly sees those offerings being afforded only to folks whose votes they can figuratively, and in some cases literally, buy.
And pretty soon if this trend continues the only folks left in California will be the super rich who know all the state's tax loopholes, a dwindling and struggling middle class, and sorry groups of people with their hands out to freely get whatever they can in exchange for their vote. And this in turn will bleed California's coffers dry...not an ideal situation I'd say as a bankrupt “blue” state can no longer simply assume that the federal government will bail them out just as the destination “red” states cannot assume that those entering will suddenly turn their political leanings “red,” making the entire situation a conundrum indeed.
So what's the answer? It's quite simple really...fed up Californians need to fix their state at the voting booth starting this very November, because as long as they keep voting in those representing the agenda of the new Democrat-Socialist party the longer the exodus out of their state will continue on. And while some Californians are just now starting to wake up to that fact...the recent election wins of Republicans Melissa Melendez and Mike Garcia just might help to start the ball rolling that will hopefully someday soon turn California back to being a “red” state again.
I, for one, have my fingers crossed for just that to happen. Case closed.
