California & Pennsylvania - States to Watch

RINO Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has proposed more than $12 Billion in cuts to close a $19 Billion budget deficit in California. Keep in mind that California is required to balance its budget each year in accordance with the state's Constitution; but has been running multi-billion deficits for several years by borrowing to pay current operating expenses. But now, California has reached the end of the line. Since the state is actually bankrupt, borrowing even more money is problematic at best.

As such, Schwarzenegger is proposing real cuts to health and welfare programs because deficits persist as a result of Socialist Schemes that have driven jobs and companies out of California and because tax revenues are $3 Billion less than was anticipated. This really should be no surprise to anyone since official unemployment in California is at 12.5%. Unemployment is actually much higher if the underemployed and those that have stopped looking for jobs are also counted.

In any case, the rubber has hit the road. Unless Socialist President Obama steps in to bail out California, these cuts are necessary; however, it is doubtful that the Socialists that control Sacramento and the public employee unions that control these politicians will ever allow these cuts to happen. Since Schwarzenegger claims he will not allow tax increases (we shall see about that since the Governor has approved billions in tax increases in the past), it would appear that Californians will see another summer circus that happens every year in this dysfunctional state.

And, then there is Pennsylvania. Incumbent RINO, turned Socialist, 76 year old, Senator Arlen Specter is being challenged by left wing Socialist Congressman Joe Sestak. Obama campaigned for Specter, who has the support of the Socialist establishment (sort of); but it is starting to look like Specter may bite the dust in the primary. Sestak is surging ahead in the polls. Arlen Specter, who has been in office for many terms is a dinosaur and an old windbag, who deserves to lose, for all of his shenanigans. If Specter does lose it will be clear that Obama is the political kiss of death for incumbents and other Socialists running for office since it would appear that where ever Obama campaigns (Virginia, New Jersey, Massachusetts), the Socialist candidate bites the dust.

Watch California and Pennsylvania in the weeks ahead. California will again demonstrate a complete lack of ability to deal with its financial crisis. And, if Specter goes down, it will be a clear demonstration of the tidal wave that is coming that will sweep Socialists like Harry Reid of Nevada and many others out of office, as well. Republicans are likely to take over the Congress if this trend continues to effectively bring an end to the Obama Presidency, which must be our goal to stop all of Obama's Socialist Schemes.

We are going to take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, a strong national defense, real energy independence and health care reform, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. Most important, we will elect Conservatives who support the Constitution as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by our current Socialist President, former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. The tidal wave is coming that will sweep these Socialists out of office and back to the college campuses that they came from. We can do it. We will do it for the sake of our children and grandchildren to save our country.
