Given the dire situation that Democratic-run states like California find themselves in, it’s no wonder that both citizens and activists alike are growing tired of failed promises and useless mandates. Since COVID-19 was first announced, the Democrats have run out of fear. Even President Biden decided to campaign from his basement while the virus swept through the nation. Seeing how careless the Democrats are being, one state is taking measures to end the Dems’ reign of terror.
Introducing one of the most liberal states in our country – California. It seems that over 1.2 million people that call the state home believe that Governor Gavin Newsom, Democrat, has not only stumbled when it comes to the pandemic response but outright lied to citizens when dealing with COVID-19. And it doesn’t stop there. Besides gaining signatures to get Newsom out of office, the coalition also garnered a staggering $1.2 million.
Weighing in on the recent events, former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer said, “Californians are hurting, and we’ve had a dramatic failure of leadership from the governor. Governor’s actions are harming lives and livelihoods, people are at their wits’ end and they want to do something about it.”
According to statistics done by Johns Hopkins University, California has seen one of the harshest impacts due to the pandemic. It has accumulated over 1.3 million cases and has suffered over 37,000 deaths. This doesn’t add the number of people that have lost their jobs, been evicted, or are homeless – all due to COVID-19 and the handling by the Democrats.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
While the state of California requires at least 1.5 million signatures to prompt a recall election, Newsom and his team don’t seem all that worried as his approval rating sits at 57%. The last and only Governor to be recalled was Gray Davis back in 2003 with a dismal 27% approval rating.
Even with all the signatures and money raised, the Democrats and Newsom believe this isn’t an attack on their measly accomplishments but a coordinated strike by President Donald Trump. A spokesperson for Newsom told reporters, “Trump supporters want California taxpayers to waste $100 million on a special election redo, mere months before a regularly scheduled election.”
So, instead of owning up to their mistakes, the Democrats are still blaming the Trump Administration for their own failures. As history has shown, Democrats aren’t great at running states, let alone an entire country.
