Tea Party favorite Tim Donnelly is running for Governor in California, which he said is a bellwether state in an interview on the Palin Update with Kevin Scholla. Donnelly is pushing for a return to basics: free enterprise, limited government and upholding the Constitution. He said government is the fastest growing industry in the state and the Democratic Party has been hijacked by Marxist progressives whose sole goal is to build a legion of regulators controlling every aspect of your life. Donnelly has united disaffected Democrats behind his ticket.
Donnelly, who founded the largest Minuteman chapter California said Mexico’s strife is spilling into California’s streets. Over 100,000 people have been killed in Mexico’s narco-trafficking wars over the past four years and its government has totally abandoned the rule of law. Minors are sold into the sex trade in California under the false promise of working in restaurants.
He said our future depends on personal responsibility and accountability. In California, the government is paying people not to work and driving out job producers with confiscatory taxes. Donnelly said the state government needs to be radically shrunk. Further, he said, “We ought to be drilling and fracking our way to prosperity, not sitting on an ocean of oil and importing it from our enemies.”
While Gov. Brown’s “re-alignment” is dumping violent criminals onto the streets, citizens are turned into criminals for owing guns to protect themselves. The good news, however, is that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals – normally a bastion of liberalism – declared the state’s “may issue” concealed carry permits unconstitutional and California is now a “shall-issue” state.
Donnelly said ObamaCare does away with surcharge premiums for the morbidly obese and smokers – people who should pay higher premiums because of their lifestyle choices.
Donnelly said he greatly admires former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. “She’s a normal person who talks like a normal person, and it so offends the political establishment, and the elite.” People want somebody who has skin in the game – even leftists, he said.
“The California dream starts with…returning to prosperity,” he said. He has embarked on a 40-city, 5,000-mile bus tour. The state used to be the freest and most prosperous in the nation, he said.
Commonwealth Commonsense: Democrats Also Have Internal Battles
Susan Stimpson said the Democrats have internal battles, just like Republicans do. There is a disconnect between the leadership and the rank-and-file and a battle of visions. In today’s information age, it is much tougher for party bosses to control messaging. The difference, however, Scholla said is that Democrats get behind a nominee, whereas Republicans continue to spar. Apathy sets in and the GOP nominee is hung out to dry.
Steel Resolve: Football, Not Gov’t
Sarah Steelman said, “football offers young men the opportunity to be part of a team – to sacrifice for their teammates, and to dedicate” to physical and mental preparedness, and to give 100% win or lose. She said high school football saves many young men and gives them scholarships. “The real Michael Sam story is that he survived,” Steelman said.
