California Lawmakers Find A New Way To Screw Over Their State
California, as Trump might put it, has become a sh!thole. They still have a booming homeless population that has led to streets littered with trash and fecal matter. If that were not bad enough, the waste has attracted flea-ridden rats, and due to the rat infestation, there have been cases of Typhoid in the true blue state. So you’d think that it might be time for California to give the GOP, or just about anyone not affiliated with the Dem party, a chance to fix the disgusting condition of the state. But unfortunately for the remaining citizens of California, liberal legislators are trying to shut-out Republicans in the upcoming race by forcing candidates to release their tax returns.
“The Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act – signed in late July by Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom – was an obvious bid to compel Trump to make public his financial records if he wants his name on the ballot. But the president is unlikely to cave to the law’s provisos given his previous resistance to making tax returns public.
Republican leaders in the Golden State, however, argue that if the law actually keeps Trump off the March primary ballot, it would all but assure a depressed Republican turnout statewide — hurting down-ballot candidates in congressional and other races and locking many out of the general election due to the state’s unique primary system.
“We’re not talking about keeping President Trump off the ballot in the general election,” Jessica Patterson, the California Republican Party chairwoman, told Fox News. “But what this will do is make sure that Republican voters stay home for the primaries and give Democrats a big opportunity when it comes to the general election.”
Here’s why: Under California’s so-called jungle primary system, all candidates, regardless of party, vie for the same elected office and the top two vote-getters move on to the general election. Since it was implemented in California in 2010, this system has often ensured a Democrat-on-Democrat general election battle in all but California’s most conservative areas. Depressed GOP turnout in 2020 could mean even fewer Republicans move on to the general election.
The Democratic lawmakers who introduced the transparency bill balk at the notion that it is meant to hinder Republican chances of making it onto the general election ballot, however. They argue that its aim is to keep all presidential candidates honest about their income and where their money comes from.”
Californians should be abandoning ship as it is, but its unfortunate for those stuck there without the means to head to a more sanitary and properly run state. As it stands Trump doesn’t need to win California, they are a true blue state that he didn’t win in 2016. The Dems are just trying to ensure they can keep on mismanaging the filthy state.
