With Dems revealing their unfiltered totalitarianism, and no Republicans on the California senate ballot, write in Travis Allen’s name for U.S. Senate.
UPDATE: I’ve learned, to my dismay, that California disallows write-ins during the main election. Please go here for a different strategy in California.
When Democrats successfully turned California into an Open Primary state, I argued that this would destroy true democracy in California. Spring primaries are the time during which people in a specific party can elect their standard-bearer. Then, as the election nears, these standard bearers make their case to the entire state based upon current social, political, and economic conditions.
In an open primary state such as California, though, open primaries turn the “primary” into a pre-vote before a November run-off. Aside from John Cox’s unexpected (and delightful) appearance on the gubernatorial ballot, come October and November, when voters start paying attention, Californians do not get to hear conservative voices raised on national issues.
The events of the last weeks reveal something else that’s dreadful about Open Primaries, beyond just silencing conservative voices. If last-minute events show that Democrats are unfit to lead in Congress, concerned Californians have no alternatives other than . . . Democrats. That’s precisely what’s happened in this election cycle.
Up until a few weeks ago, California conservatives had two choices if they wished to have a say in sending a Senator to Congress: Kevin de León, who is an openly hard Leftist, or incumbent Dianne Feinstein, who has always positioned herself as a moderate Leftist. For many conservatives, this Hobson’s choice would have resulted in their picking Feinstein as the lesser of two evils.
Now we know, though, that there is no “lesser of two evils” when it comes to the only choices in California for U.S. Senator. Kevin de León remains as hard Left as ever. Dianne Feinstein, meanwhile, has slipped into the equally evil category. First, she was revealed either as the stupid dupe of a Chinese spy or someone who was complicit in Chinese spying. (She did, after all, make bank on China during those same years.)
Bad as Feinstein’s China problem is, worse was yet to come. The Kavanaugh hearings have exposed Feinstein’s utterly disgraceful, morally bankrupt behavior regarding Christine Blasey Ford’s vague, uncorroborated charges against Kavanaugh. [Read more…]
