Decision 1: Opt for a better California.

Decision 2: Vote Gavin Newsom out of office.

Decision 3: Do not regret this choice. The whole state will benefit.

If Democrats are so concerned about recall, doing a better job makes sense. Politicians end up on a recall ballot for the same reason employees are fired. They're doing a lousy job, and they have no one to blame but themselves. If you're doing an excellent job, you have nothing to fear.

No one was worried about this sham recall election. Most citizens that don’t suffer from likely mental issues all appreciated the job Newsom did to guide California through the pandemic. Very predictably projections already have Newsom winning in a landslide and also very predictably Newsom is currently taking a victory lap on television right now. Now, to all of the people that supported the recall, the recall is over and you will respect your Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom, and also stop with “election fraud” accusations. What a waste of time and taxpayer money! If you don’t like the Democratic run state of California you are free to move to Texas, Arkansas, or any other Republican state. In fact, please move. Not only that, this total failure of a recall may also eventually propel Newsom into the Presidency at some point in the future. Spoiler alert: That’s what Gavin’s being groomed for everyone! A special thank you to Larry Elder for being the best thing to happen to California in an ironic way of course. Now Gavin is free to carry out Biden’s agenda here without having to watch what he says because of a sham recall. Finally, dinner is on Gavin tomorrow night at the French Laundry to celebrate this victory.
