I wonder if alot of these Republicans running for Congress in blue districts actually hit the streets.
I knew Mike Garcia was legit when I went to Simi Valley a few weeks ago and saw billboards, posters, volunteers, bumper stickers all over.
So many do nothing but tweet.
If you are not willing to organize a ground game, you literally have zero shot. Organizing costs very little. Just a vision and a love for people.
I've seen preachers build churches of thousands of followers just from engaging communities and hitting the streets.
If I ever run for office, I would get a few people and a bullhorn and go to every place i could and cast vision and register voters every single day. This literally costs you zero money , just sweat equity.
It annoys me when people tell me to move out of California. This is my state too, & I love it ! Every Beach, Every trail, every mountain & hill, the beautiful weather, the amazing food, the creativity, etc. Why should lifelong natives be told to tuck tail & run like cowards?
The problem in California is we have an inept and incompetent Republican party and leadership.
I'd fire everyone every 2 years if they didn't get gains on voters from the previous elections. Only in politics do you get rewarded for being a loser .
I just got back from a business trip to Orange County and Simi Valley. Such amazing places. I live in the Bay Area, in my humble opinion, this is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Why should we concede it to the commies wo a fight?! Why?!
Prediction:The country will reopen. The economy will take off once it does. Thousands of Manufacturers will come back to the United States. The borders will be protected. President Trump will be reelected with a House Majority and America will be stronger and better than ever!
Remember all the fearmongering being pushed by the left and some on the right. It's always the same people.
Every Republican leader and many Business Giants are talking about the need to never be dependent on China in the future. This influx of Manufacturing companies moving back to America will create millions of jobs .
There are people on here who do nothing but b*tch and moan 24/7 . Constantly pushing non stop negativity. Constantly criticizing the President, constantly attacking those who don't subscribe to their bullsh*t. And no, I'm not talking about leftists. We expect that from them.
This Pandemic sucks. The Shutdown sucks. The Economy is suffering.
I understand all that. But we must be intentional about looking for the light in the midst of darkness .
Read what God did to the mumblers and Grumblers in the desert . It is a characteristic He hates.
In the desert, the Israelites said " We are all going to die "
They also accused Moses of " Leading us to desert so the Egyptians can slaughter us"
In Sports, these kind of people literally ruin lockerooms and kill team Morale.
I expect stupidity from the left but when so called " right wingers" start spewing the same nonsense, it's infuriating. The Stimulus bill is not a corporate bailout. Is it filled with pork? Absolutely. But the majority of the money is going to help big and small businesses.
When people use that talking point, it shows that they have never run a business. Do you have any idea how much money goes into running a business? The overhead is not a bag of peanuts. Especially if you do business in a State like Ca or NY
A small business still has to pay their employees, payroll tax, health insurance, worker's comp insurance ( which is expensive af ) about 15-20% of total payroll, rent, utilities, monthly payments on equipment, pay vendors, etc etc.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error & shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds
who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly
In one of President Trump's tweets today, he said that he had to accept some stupid things in order to get much needed relief to American Workers and American businesses.
This is the thing about Trump that many don't understand. He is not an ideologue but a pragmatist .
President Trump is also a businessman, so he weighs things on different scales than a politician.
Let me share a story with y'all. Several years ago , I was driving to Washington and I got a flat tire on hwy 97 just outside of Klamath Falls Oregon
It was pretty late and I was stranded in the middle of nowhere. I happened to find a tire shop just a few miles from there so I slowly drove to it. Once I got there, the tire guy wanted to charge me 5 times the normal price to fix my tire .
I keep seeing alot of Trump supporters complaining about the shutdown, saying this is all overblown and what not. If that's the case then you're basically blaming the President cause he's 100% on board with this.
You can't say out of one side of your mouth that you love /support the President and on then say out of the other side of your mouth that this is all a hoax, overblown, not a real problem, etc.
My feeling is that this is worse than expected and in the coming weeks we'll see it.
So Trump who has stood his ground on everything and always been an independent thinker, is suddenly being influenced by hysteria and going along with the destruction of our economy? Is that what y'all are saying ? If that's the case, he's not fit for office anymore.
Red Diaper Doper Babies aka leftists are blaming Trump for what's happening with Iran. But reasonable people only need to ask themselves this question. Are you ok with terrorists killing Americans, attacking our Embassies, and plotting more attacks against America ?
Do you let such things slide or do you retaliate? If you let it slide, what are the consequences of the inaction? If you retaliate, is it then your fault if Iran retaliates? Who really is the one escalating here? President Trump has already let previous acts of aggression go.
For those of you that subscribe to the doctrine of appeasement, thinking that will make things better, nobody appeased Iran more than 44 aka Bathhouse Barry. He literally gave them 150 billion, 1.7 billion in cash, and a path to make nukes
I understand why people are worried about war. I understand that people don't trust our Government. Both parties are guilty of lying to the American people in order to start meaningless wars. Having said that, doing nothing in the face of constant provocations isn't an option.
What do you think would happen if the United States did nothing when threatened, when it's citizens are killed abroad, when their Embassies are attacked, etc.
Do you really think that doing nothing would make us more safe?
While Obama was negotiating a deal with Iran giving them a path to aquire nuclear weapons, while he was giving them 150 billion dollars, The Ayatollah was leading marches chanting " Death to America " and holding American sailors at gunpoint
The reason why Republicans are not more aggressive in exposing Democrat corruption is because they probably have a bunch of skeletons in their own closets that they don't want exposed. So they let these America Hating leftists destroy our country . The entire thing is a swamp.
Politics is just one big WWE event. The only person in Washington that truly wants to fix our country is President Trump. The rest of these filthy politicians just want to stay employed
I've tried to think of reasons why President Trump would run for President in an effort to enrich himself and I can't think of any. This Presidential run has cost him hundreds of millions of dollars.
Can someone refuse you service simply because they don't feel like ringing you up ? Does Anyone that works in customer service know ?
What are the laws for refusing to serve a paying customer ?
Go to a Starbucks inside a grocery store, buy 2 bags of coffee that were 50% off, the girl was already complaining and having a bad day. She goes to ring me up and does not know how to activate the discount.
She calls her manager who comes and shows her, the entire time she's talking sh*t and saying she wants to go home and is going to refuse service to everyone after me .
The rot in California is so bad that if there was ever a counter movement to fix it and it gained serious traction, it would get very messy. Leaders of the movement would mysteriously disappear, there would be violence, riots, etc. The people in power in this state are evil.
It already happens ffs. Try organizing a Trump rally here and you'll be met with violence which leftist mayors condone and which the leftist media justifies.
It will take people with resolve and willing to die for their beliefs to save this God forsaken state.
Many people say that change is impossible. Probably, but here are some reasons for hope. California has the most Republicans in the country . The majority of our citizens don't vote. That is a large base of people who can be flipped against the radical leftism that destroys Ca
