My day job has become very challenging lately, and may continue to cause light blogging. When I have little time, it concentrates my mind on what is both important and within my sphere of influence. For example, I love following Presidential politics, but as a Californian I am going to have little influence on neither the Republican nominating process nor the electoral vote totals. Here are my priorities for this year and how I am feeling.
- 1. Defeating Governor Jerry Brown’s proposed tax increases; highly confident. Getting his execrable budget killed; not so much.
- 2. Getting pension reform passed in San Diego; highly confident.
- 3. Getting Carl DeMaio elected Mayor of San Diego; optimistic.*
- 4. Reaching out to left, right and center on entitlement reform and ending crony capitalism; cautiously optimistic.**
* The Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition does not endorse candidates, so this is a personal endorsement.
** Kelly, a liberal commenter, comments on why this is important in the comments section on my Saturday post about Rhode Island’s Democrat led pension reform.
I hope for a groundswell of support for these goals.
