It could be said that Gavin was no worse than former governor Brown, but I was clearly mistaken. Right from the get go, he got right down to business, but most of it was bearable, until COVID hit, at which point, he started to go on an insane power trip, by shutting down his state, and locking people in their homes, restricting businesses, and taking away people’s freedom to choose, of movement, to gather, and decimating the economy. His tyrannical rule must end. He decimated SF, and he is now doing the same, but statewide. He is also hypocritical, as he authorized the lawmakers’ retreat to Maui, Hawaii as well as partying himself at an indoor venue, packed closely together without any masks, and furthermore allowing his own winery to remain open. What did we get? Statewide mask mandate, stay-at-home orders (lock-downs), business restrictions (many businesses are closed, such as bars, dine-in restaurants, museums, libraries, churches, arcades, carnivals, public events, Six Flags, Disneyland, gyms, schools, public assistance facilities, social gatherings in home, holidays, tourism, etc). He is incompetent to lead. Even prior to COVID, he had a lot of stupid laws pass on his watch, such as SB276 (vaccine exemptions), AB 5 (gig workers), and so forth. He squandered the state budget, and made CA into a sanctuary state. We are taxed enough, but he keeps slapping more taxes and fees, and many more miles of red tape (I guess the state’s red tape might be as long as a billion miles, taking outrageously long times to traverse end to end). He has failed to address the wildfire issues, allowing fires to grow to monstrous sizes (millions of acres this year) by failing to reasonably manage wildfires by barring logging and fire hazard mitigation tasks such as controlled burns during calm wind periods. He has degraded our electrical grid comparable to 3rd-world-country standards, by allowing utilities companies (such as PG&E and SCE) to shut off power on windy days instead of urging them to upgrade its infrastructure. He shuns nuclear and hydrocarbon power and instead prefers wind and solar, which was blamed for the rolling blackouts this summer, as having more nuclear and hydrocarbon plants would have relieved the strain on the power grid and have prevented blackouts. He is also reluctant to build desalination plants, which would have alleviated the problems resulting from chronic droughts. And besides that, there are many more infringements on our constitutional rights, and more than what I can fit in. All this to say one thing: Newsom must go, and that is why I have a moral obligation to sign this.
