Political Priorities for 2012 – One SD tea party perspective

B-Daddy B-Daddy 1 Comment



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. 1. Defeating Governor Jerry Brown’s proposed tax increases; highly confident. Getting his execrable budget killed; not so much.
  2. 2. Getting pension reform passed in San Diego; highly confident.
  3. 3. Getting Carl DeMaio elected Mayor of San Diego; optimistic.*
  4. 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.

Dang, I can’t resist, here is one example of why I can’t stand Santorum (H/T Temple of Mut):

  1. I agree B-Daddy, not so sure the voting public is that informed (I could use other adjectives, I choose to be polite, at the moment).
