Calif. GOP Offering "Most Diverse Ticket Ever"

Listened to this on the way to work. This might be "the most diverse ticket" but they all sure sound the same, and their all spouting the same party. Less regulation, less taxes, its the illegals fault, I'm good, your bad.

Give me a break, please.

How many jobs did HP ship overseas under Carly Fiorina. Why did the board of HP see fit to terminate her contract? Somehow, the fact that she happend to head HP (and drove it into the ground) and can spend a boatload of her own money qualifies her for Senate how, exactly?

MegWhitman? No Thanks. What has she spent so far? Sure, its her own money. Don't care. Ideally you get elected on ideads and skill, you don't buy the office. The fact that she's spent so much to barely stay even with Jerry Brown probably says it all. Her own record of NOT VOTING in elections is, well, inexcusable.

So yeah, you might 'look' different. But better? Smarter? Got real workable the answers to our problems? Not so much.

Until you do have real answers, I'll remain an independent, And I won't be voting for anyone on your ticket.

Prop 13: The Battle Between Taxpayer and Taxes

Taxed to death? Not hardly. I was in California when 13 passed and the logic of most voters was something like 'Geez - if I pay less taxes, I'll be able to buy more....' No one I talked to seemed able to think beyond their own nose. Taxes were indeed a problem, but 13 was not the right solution.

No we can't fund the schools to the level needed. Even in my kids fairly wealthy district, the parents are kicking in a grand or more per kid per year to pay for science and music classes. The UC system is a shadow of its former self and doesn't have to capacity to meet its mission - educating our kids. Forget research, which was a huge contributor to our economy.

Want fire services with out brownouts? You have to pay for them. Same for police, libraries, streets, water, you name it. NONE OF IT IS FREE.

Throw out the Dems? Repubs are as bad or worse. And no, its not those evil mexicans either. Stop using them as a whipping boy and look in the mirror. Stop screaming that you are taxed to death, you aren't.
