During a press conference on Monday, surrounded by San Jose fire department union supporters, Gov. Schwarzenegger explained the negative prospects for Propositions A-F on voters who are "angry" and "confused".
Yes, we are angry but we are not confused.
We are angry that our legislators have not performed their duties as our elected officials and that they have led us into repeated budget impasses over the last few years. Unbridled spending by our legislators cannot continue. Yes, we are mad about this. But are we confused? I don't think so. We know that we are going to the polls on Tuesday because our legislators lacked the backbone to do what they were elected to do...lead. We understand fully that the propositions are an attempt to place the blame for our budget crisis on the residents of California. We are the ones the legislators and governor will blame when the propositions are not passed. This is the most blatant example of scape-goating I have ever seen. Yes, I'm angry. No, I'm not at all confused.
We have the power to implement CHANGE. CHANGE the paradigm of Sacramento that assumes Californians will continue to accept increased taxes to support the special interest leaches that have attached themselves to our legislators. Hold our legislators accountable for the fiscal health of our State. Don't allow them to bully and frighten you into voting for these propositions because if you do they will only come after you for more and higher taxes in the near future.
VOTE NO AS MANY TIMES AS LEGAL IN TUESDAY'S ELECTIONS AND LET OUR LEGISLATORS KNOW WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THEIR SHENANIGANS IN SACRAMENTO.
