Rancho Santa Margarita's Shovel Ready Voters Guide
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - We say that the 2010 general election is a Shovel Ready Election – including the elections in the City of Rancho Santa Margarita (RSM). As opposed to the promised Shovel Ready Projects used as a justification to pass massive government spending that even the President now agrees, were not really shovel ready, in this case this voters guide is shovel ready: Get ready your shovel, put your boots on and get ready to shovel the guano out of office.
Petrilla Takes On RSM City Hall's Kerryesque Stand on Annexation and Public Safety
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - Jesse Petrilla, candidate for Rancho Santa Margarita City Council blasted the council for its stand on public safety and annexation. Petrilla took particular aim at the votes ".. cast by the three council members up for re-election, may eventually destroy the small town atmosphere we in R.S.M. have all come to love."
While the RSM city hall voted to increase its political capital with parasitic bureaucracies, such as LAFCO and CLRC by reversing itself to opposing LAFCO's amendment to sphere of influence, in essence committing to provide more services to more residents, it also voted to make cuts to its public safety budget: View this as Rancho's version of DC's smoke-filled back room deals which included Stupak's Soul Sale, the Cornhuskers Kick Back, the Union Bribe, the Louisiana Purchase, and others
The candidates vying for Rancho Santa Margarita's two available four-year seats on city council in the November general election include Tony Beall, Carol Gamble and Kenney Hrabik. The former two candidates represent the status quo in more ways than one, while Hrabik represents change and is endorsed by Councilman Jesse Petrilla.
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - There is a lot of truth in the old adage that "we should not judge a book by its cover." But what if we have access to the Cover, the Table of Contents and the Appendix? Can we get a good idea as to the contents of the book? In other words, using another adage "tell me who you associate with and I will tell you who you are?" and applying the latter to political elections, if we know the candidate's supporters, we should be able to have a good idea about how that candidate will govern. Take for instance Van Jones, Reverend Wright, the National Representative of the Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan, the Reverend Al Sharpton, terrorist William Charles " Bill" Ayers and former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel all supporters of candidate Obama. Should this not have been a good indicator, largely ignored, of the contents of the now Presidential Book?
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - While heuristics indicate that a NO vote in any California's direct special interest democracy is a wise move, following the money may be even better. Below is a list of the 2010 California propositions, their main supporters and our recommendations, including a brief rationale.
