Hi, my name is Don Erwin, I am from San Diego, California. And I am retired. My reason for being a Republican is too doggone much government. As Ronald Reagan once said, the least amount of government is the best amount of government. And I for one stand as an American to do what I need to do to become successful or to fail, whichever I do it should be my decision not the government's. Our state is a business, we need to grow it as a business. Hum, right now they can get rid of about three quarters of the people in government and still carry on the business of government. My name is Trisha Lane Bowler and I'm from Diamond Bar, California. I am a Republican because I have faith, I have love of this country. I believe the Democrats values are... they don't have any, ok? My name is Lee Schell, I am from Monterey County, California, and I'm old enough to not be Democrat! I am a Republican because I feel that the rights that were set down in the U.S. Constitution were rights that our Founding Fathers insisted that we have and maintain and my goal as a Republican is to preserve the American way of life. Hi, my name is Kelly. I am from Santa Barbara and I'm with bigtimeconservative.com, here at the California Republican Convention, and what it means to me to be a Republican and a conservative...lower taxes, less government in your life, less intrusive. We need to get business as back to work, we need to hire people, gets more jobs going.
