The Painful Truth Comes Out

by Tsani Jones Friday, Jul. 25, 2003 at 2:42 PM

California Democrats caught plotting against the little guy via hidden microphone. Admissions of involvement in harming the educational system, and instigating a budget crisis.

The media is not talking about it. You

won't see it on Headline News, or the

Los Angeles Times. It's hush-hush on the

major networks. They think they're safe.

But the California Democrats are busted.

More busted than a crack dealer in a

room full of vice cops. They thought

they were whispering their plan against

the people in a quiet back room, in the

darkness where they like to hide, but

they weren't.

Democrats from the California Assembly

made a major faux-pas when they forgot

to shut off the internal microphone that

filters conversation and debate

throughout the capital. Try this on for


"The question that I have, is that- and

I go back to both '92 and to '78- when

people never saw that, they never got to

see really up front and close what Prop

13 really did. Because what we did in

education was is that teachers started

subsidizing their classrooms, and we cut

out art and we cut music and we cut out

drama and we cut sports in some areas

and, cut out tutoring and [inaud]

teachers and we raised class size. And

people thought: look, schools are still

open, this didn't hurt anyone. Some of

us are thinking that maybe people should

see the pain up close and personal,

right now."

That was California Assemblymember

Jackie Goldberg of Hollywood. She was

admitting what the Democrats have been

doing to create pain within the citizens

of the state in order to fuel and pass

their agenda.

The education reference that was made

had sparked many a public service

campaign to bring the arts back into

schools, how the lack of music, drama,

and other forms of expression creates a

downfall of skill in providing children

with the tools of individuality.

Now they admit they created the

situation, and are using it to push our

buttons as voters. They want Rider vs.

San Diego County, which led to the

necessity of a 2/3 vote in order to

raise taxes abolished, so they can use

simple majority to raise, a much easier


They also discussed the fiscal crisis

California is in, and from the excerpts

available to the public here, the

California Democrats are basically

pleased with themselves that the state

is in crisis financially, because they

believe it will help their political

agenda. They even go so far as to

verbally declare it.

So, what we have learned here today is

that a group of people verified below

were in on this discussion. From the

excerpts we have, we know this has been

continual. For Herb Wesson, the

ringleader of the Democratic Caucus and

Speaker of the House to deny

responsibility and try to spin this as a

fringe group is a fallacy, if not an

outright lie. He is in charge of the ring,

he is the leader. Thus, he could not help

but know the agenda.

We thought we had lawmakers, instead, we

have a vacant lot of middle-aged

schoolchildren. This is apparently a

popularity contest to them more than a

government of the people. This is apparent

in the fact that California now has to

recall a governor for roughly the same


This is denigrating and insulting to the

taxpaying voter, who is being addressed and

treated as a simple rube in order to give

the "popular kids" power. The power which,

in effect, creates issues such as the

energy crisis, a series of spending

increases totaling billion dollars, tax

increases such as a tripling of the vehicle

tax, and blatant lies regarding the budget.

We haven't even addressed the fact that

this group intentionally harmed our

children by removing art, music, drama, and

other programs from our schools in addition

to creating many of the overcrowding

situations and degradation in the quality.

All so they could stay in office.

California Democrats think you are a

bleeding idiot. Plain and simple. You have

it from the horses' mouths, so there is no

possible way to logically deny this fact.

But are Republicans the answer? Someone had

to join in to pass these heinous

legislative pieces of driftwood they

discuss. Since there weren't any

Libertarians to raise a stink and inform

the public, there is only one other

culprit, the Conservatives.

Who was it that actually sued the

government and created the enactment of a

2/3 vote before a tax increase could be

enacted? It wasn't Republicans, neither was

it a Democrat. The people that fought the

system, to make it fairer to us, the

people, was in fact, Richard Rider, a


Who are the first groups to battle any kind

of tax increase in California? Same answer,


There is an opportunity for the citizen to

do their proper duty. This duty provides

them with the progressive social advances

the state needs for all citizens, and the

money handling that will lead to more money

in the taxpayers' pockets, as well as

easier ways to spend that new income in a

manner they choose and desire.

The faces you see, of Wesson, Dymally,

Berg, Laird, Jackson, Nunez, Levine,

Goldberg, and Lowenthal, are what you need

to think about in November of 2004 inside

the voting booth.

Remember this travesty and betrayal. Recall

it into your mind every day until Election

Day, and then vote Libertarian. Do it for

yourself, but more importantly, vote

Libertarian in 2004 for your children.
