I have been disgusted with the Republican Party for the last six years. The Republican Party in California has failed to recruit candidates to win for the US Senate nor has nominated mainstream candidates that could reach out to voters in all parts of our state. I wish I could be a dreamer, but former State Senator Mountjoy has no prayer of becoming our next US Senator.
Electing Cindy Sheehan to be the nominee for the US Senate for the Democratic Party is just like how the Republican Party elected Richard Mountjoy for this year’s race against the incumbent Dianne Feinstein. I believe when Barbara Boxer runs again in 2010, Secretary of State Condoleza Rice will be a very formidable opponent.
Right now I believe in giving to Republican party interests who believe in an inclusive Republican Party. You can be conservative but being inclusive of all people white, brown, black, straight or queer is the best policy. I will likely concentrate on local elections only this election cycle.
