Post California Election Thoughts

Well, it's been a few days since the midterm elections and while the rest of the nation is on a high, I'm afraid I can't fully celebrate with the rest of the country. Yes, I'm happy with the over all out come but...

"A tidal wave (tsunami) of change", Not so in California
"The Catholic Vote comes through", Not so in California
"The people have sent a message to Obama..." Not so in California

I'm afraid to admit, the reason for the California loss (in my opinion) is that we just have too many voters here with their hands out. With a higher unemployment rate than the nation, with a higher volume of, yes illegal aliens.There are many eligible voting Hispanics, citizens that are sympathetic to the immigrants to the extent that any real or unreal prejudice to this part of our community will bring about a negative voting reaction to any candidate.I am Hispanic myself and don't say this to offend, it's just a reality. There are also too many Prius with Obama stickers, I'm afraid it just won't be change anytime soon.

Our California Catholic vote didn't solidify either. That's the most frustrating  part of the election for me. How can you vote back in Barbara Boxer and the Pelosi agenda (abortion on demand, paid for by the present Health Care law) and be fully aware of where the Catholic Church stands on this intrinsic evil is just beyond me.

You've often heard the phrase " Give a man a fish and he'll only ask you for another later.Teach a man to fish and he'll feed himself and show others to do the same." ...or something like that.

Once on the dole, it won't be easy to get back on your own. California is so deep BLUE it's almost Black.
That doesn't mean I've given up. Just means I need to pray more, work more within my community, teach my family to live their faith. Encourage them to be the light in the world they need to be.
I still love L.A.

Waking up the New Catholic Vote -
Pushed, in part, by concern about the health care bill, Catholic voters across the nation returned to the GOP in numbers resembling the presidential victory of George W. Bush in 2004.

  1. You forgot two other big California groups with their hands out - Big Unions and the Big Welfare group. Add that to the illegal immigrants and us conservatives are outnumbered 3-1.
