election day posting

Election Day begins and I am heading to the polls now. I decided not to vote by mail because my opinions did fluctuate through this election.

I do understand that California does need reform, but the Republican Party nominees were not exactly exceptional. Where Republicans are willing to risk Gavin Newsom and Dave Jones in the general election. May the effects of violating the 2008 pledges on taxation help make prospective candidates in the future take pledges seriously or not support them.

On this day you will see expanded coverage and you are invited to comment.

This is our last election where you can vote for a third party like Green or Libertarian. I hope Proposition 14 gets repealed, but I will be voting against Abel Maldonado due to this.

I decided not to vote for any Democratic Party candidates. If the Republican made me want to lose my lunch thinking of him or her, I voted Libertarian Party. Come 2012 we will only have the dog and pony show.

On the local races I voted for most of the challengers. For the Ontario-Montclair School district I voted for any challenger except Ben Lopez due to the board passing a resolution against SB 1070.

At the polls it was slightly busy and I hope we get a healthy influx of voters until the polls close at 8.

  1. I availed myself of the opportunity to vote for a third party (again with a strategy similar to yours).

    I’ll probably write more about this after the election results are officially decided, but I have a general concern with corporate CEOs who want to become Governor or President. CEOs are used to telling people what to do, but that is not the way it works in Sacramento or in Washington, and any CEO who announces “I have a plan” has to deal with the fact that said plan will be dead on arrival when it gets to the Assembly door. CEOs can do less damage in the Senate, since they don’t exercise executive authority per se and can just pretend like they’re on the Board of Directors or something.
