If you want to make something, start right where you stand and convince your friends and neighbors. If you cannot win your own block, apartment building or subculture, its hard to change the world without an Army behind you.
|1970 Governor Reagan re-election|
Or, as I like to say, "You cannot fight City Hall. Alone."
Here are some people who will change America out of the status quo of the Age of Contraction.
President/VP: Romney-Ryan 2012 -- President Obama could have been Mayor Bradley, instead, he became Mayor Dinkins. That's not the Right's fault. The fault, dear Left, is in thine own eyes and how you treat your Electoral opposites during Governing years. (There will be a Blog post about this post election).
Plus, Romney-Ryan are a mixture of Moderate Republicanism (Romney) and Fiscal Conservatism (Ryan). Social issues will take a backseat to the Economic and foreign policy issues in this Administration.

Senator -- Elizabeth Emken -- why is it harder to unseat Feinstein rather then Boxer? Feinstein plays well with others on Capitol Hill, Boxer does not. Expect Boxer to be thrown out in the next CA Senatorial cycle.
DA -- Alan Jackson. I've met him, and I was impressed with his seriousness and skills. He does not look for the cameras, he looks for the wins in court. The best type of politician.

And finally, because I like backing underdogs:
CD 30 Brad Sherman (D) -- if Sherman wins, the democratic party machine that has done nothing for the San Fernando Valley will finally listen. if you like the status quo in the San Fernando valley, vote for the 74 year old Berman.
And that's it!
