1. Crime
From massive shoplifting to murder, CA crime rates are zooming up.   The most dramatic increases in crime are ALL occurring in the big, Democrat-controlled cities.  Democrats OWN the crime spree.  I think that ‘crime’ might be the top issue in this recall.

[OCS: In what other state can you walk into a store, steal less than $950 – and if caught given a ticket, and if arrested, released on a $0 bail?]

2.  Homeles​sness
Especially since Newsom publicly INVITED the nation’s homeless to come to California where we will take care of them. NO CA voter wants more homeless here. Even our state’s HOMELESS don’t want more homeless here!

[OCS: In what other state does the government openly provide drug paraphernalia and needles to street dwellers? Or accept needles, urine, and human feces on sidewalks? Not to mention panhandling, mugging, and crime? The city bought trailers to house the homeless AND THEN discovered they needed water, electric, and sewer services.]

3.​  CA gas taxes and prices
Our TOTAL CA gas tax and fee costs exceed $1.20 a gallon.  Yet our roads are among the worst in the nation. It’s a bread and butter issue that voters can and do understand.

[OCS: Just paid $5/gallon for gas.]

4.  Lockdowns
It appears that variations of a lockdown WILL be imposed again and again by Democrats whenever some new variation of a communicable disease appears.  People are sick and tired of this oppression, and of all the harmful side effects.

5.  Newsom’s hypocrisy
Newsom has blatantly violated his own mask and social distancing mandates, while unleashing police on the rest of us to enforce his diktats.  Moreover, he was fine with closing the public schools for a year while HIS kids attended an OPEN private school.

6.  The theft of THIRTY BILLION DOLLARS in CA fraudulent unemployment claims
Much of that loss will have to be paid by employees having bigger “unemployment insurance” payments deducted from their paychecks in the future. Most of that stolen money went to California prisoners and ​international crime syndicates.
Newsom was in charge. Not a SINGLE CA bureaucrat was fired as a result.  He doesn’t like to talk about it.

7.  ​High Speed Rail (HSR)
CA HSR is now opposed by voters by at least a 2-1 margin.  It’s the madness that proves Democrats should not hold office in the Golden State.

[OCS: The train goes nowhere, it is not high-speed, and only the developers, contractors, consultants, and unions are benefiting – as they ignore our functioning freeways.]

8. Public Education
The prolonged closing and “masking” of public schools while most private schools long ago reopened has enraged many parents.  Clearly the schools (and the politicians) are run by the teacher unions FOR the teacher unions.
The recall is a great time to call for “school choice.”  Let the parents decide what’s best for THEIR families.

[OCS: Teaching students to hate each other because of their skin color.]

9.  Fires, Water and Electricity
Newsom has GROSSLY mismanaged California’s fire threats, water supply, and the reliability (and price) of electricity.

10.  Newsom’s de facto support of open borders.
Indeed, Newsom recently invited the WORLD to come to our welfare state, stating that “we” will take care of them.
NOTE:  The GOP must NOT be anti-immigration. It should favor VETTED, limited immigration — with enforceable limits on welfare access by immigrants.  Even INCREASED immigration can make sense with these sensible safeguards in place. <Source>

Bottom line…

We are at the tipping point. Do the right thing.
