The only other Democrat in recent decades to win a governor’s election in what historically has been the Republican Party’s bedrock was Jerry Brown in 1978. Running for re-election in his first stint as governor, Brown parlayed his belated enthusiasm for the just-passed Proposition 13 to swamp a colorless Republican opponent, Evelle Younger, in 49 of California’s 58 counties, including Orange. … [Read more...] about Nancy Pelosi faces key speaker vote: How many Democrats will defect?

Yet another one who owes her university education to Gough. I lived my teenage years in the darkest part of the Cold War - I remember sitting in a Latin class at school during the worst moment of the Missiles of October, and one of the others burst into tears, because her boyfriend was 18, and WWIII was about to break out and he would be conscripted. There seemed no long term future for the world, or for us. Then suddenly there was a genuine orator, something we'd only read about in Latin classes, who got up and told us there was hope, that we could reach a civilized agreement even with the dreaded Reds, that we could break the death-nexus with the USA and bring our troops back from Vietnam, that conscription would be abolished, that we could treat Aborigines like human beings, and so on, and so on. By that time I was cynical enough to think that even if by some miracle he got elected, he wouldn't keep his promises. Then he did keep them, many of them within 2 weeks. And the … [Read more...] about Things you didn’t know Gough Whitlam did

In the wake of amendment of the Election Law, voters aged 18 years old are emerging as a new variable in the upcoming April 15 general elections. At the time of the general elections for the 20th General Assembly four years ago, the number of voters aged 19 only accounted for 1.6 percent (677,326) of all voters. With the lowering of the voting age from 19 to 18 this time, more than 500,000 are set to cast ballot as new voters, which will bring the number of “teenage voters” to over 1 million. Different political parties are scrambling to develop “customized election pledges” while paying close attention to the direction of these young voters’ sentiment.Based on the standard of the 20th general elections, voters aged 18 account for about 1.1 percent of all voters. This is based on the population aged 17 that was tallied at 532,295 as of late April 2019 by the Statistics Korea. The voting right for the April 15 general elections is granted to those born on … [Read more...] about High school voters emerge as new variable in April 15 general elections
Economy: President Trump is doing incredible work on job creation. Minority employment is at an all-time low. More women are joining the labor force. Unfortunately, the Democratic Party is more focused on expanding government to keep people in poverty. They are more concerned with creating a socialist economy instead of letting people make choices for themselves. Capitalism is the main driver of lifting people out of poverty and we need to expand economic opportunity across Virginia, across the country. We need to cut back on regulations to make it easier for business owners to do business and promote policies like Opportunity Zones. I want to make is easier for kids that come from backgrounds like mine to have a pathway to success. Homeland and National Security: Keeping our home front secure must always be a top priority.
