David Bossie: California recall voters chose Newsom, Dems' disastrous policies, socialism. What gives?

The results showing Newsom surviving the recall by a margin of 64% to 36% – with many votes still left to be counted – gives us a snapshot of the dire situation unfolding in the state once described as “The Promised Land.” 

California is a deep blue state that hasn’t elected a Republican to statewide office since 2006. In fact, it’s hard to remember a statewide election in California when a Republican had a legitimate chance of winning.

But the wide margin of victory for Newsom shows that more Californians are growing resigned to the fact that they’re stuck with one-party Democrat rule, more government control of their lives, failed socialist policies, and they just need to get used to it. These results reek of a growing pessimism and despair that is dangerous to a free America.

However, the outcome of this election is hardly a surprise.  It’s just evidence of an entrenched Democrat political machine with a lopsided voter registration advantage conducting business as usual.   

For example, in 2018 Newsom was elected governor by a 62% to 38% margin.  Newsom received almost 4 million more votes than the Republican challenger out of over 12 million votes cast. In the 2020 presidential election, Californians once again voted in favor of big government socialism by delivering their 55 electoral votes to Democrat Joe Biden by a margin of 64% to 34% over incumbent President Donald Trump.   

All-powerful Democrat Party leaders in California have become experts at preserving the failing status quo they’ve created, to the detriment of hardworking citizens.       

In fact, California is the prototype for what happens when progressivism under one-party rule is allowed to run amok. It’s the land of high taxes, high gas prices and high crime, sanctuary cities, ballot harvesting, cradle-to-grave welfare handouts, rampant drug abuse and homelessness, COVID-19 lockdowns, restrictions, and mandates. California has quite simply become a laboratory for socialism right here in America.
