And the possibilities of a Democratic supermajority in the State Assembly become worse from there.
Democrats hope to tear apart Proposition 13, the act that
protected homeowners and put an end to state attempts at raising property
taxes. Furthermore, Democrats have spoken about the need to tax and regulate
the Internet, charging that it’s only “fair” that retail giants with an online
presence “play by the same rules.” (This latter charge has become a catch-all
phrase to smear opponents of excessive regulation and high taxes.)
Instead, AD 45 has the potential to elect a Republican. Of the three Republicans running, two candidates failed to get their party’s endorsement, and the third not only gained the California Republican Assembly’s endorsement, but also has proven himself an outsider in the political landscape. Chris Kolski is that political outsider, an engineer with years of activism in the fight to protect and expand liberty. Kolski edged out other candidates in last year’s primary election and received nearly 40% of the vote in the general election, in a district that has been solidly “safe” for Democrats.
The results startled Sacramento insiders, and many others. Kolski’s promise of no new taxes or regulations, opposition to Internet oversight, and a jobs platform struck a following among voters. With a Democratic supermajority a potential reality, voters in the Sherman Oaks area must consider Chris Kolski and his platform to transform AD 45 and California. With years of Democratic control and local nepotism, every votes counts in the quest to change Sacramento and re-direct California toward a more prudent, practical path to economic success and political stability.
