9 Reasons to Vote No on the Newsom Recall Even If You Hate Newsom

The Recall Gavin Newsom election is less than a month away, and you probably already have your mail-in ballot. The whole recall is bankrolled by just a few wealthy Republicans, and that’s just one of the reasons you should vote No on the recall. But consider these nine other absolutely terrible things that would happen to the state of California if Gavin Newsom were recalled as governor.

YOU WILL HAVE A TRUMPER AS GOVERNOR

That’s Larry Elder above, with Trump, and Larry Elder is leading the polls as the top replacement candidate. I don’t know about you, but most of us have had enough with Trump shit.

ALL THE REPUBLICANS ARE ANTI-VAXX AND ANTI-MASK

You want Florida and Texas-level death rates from COVID-19? Because that’s what you get with these Republican replacements, all of whom oppose mask and vaccination requirements.

NEARLY 10,000 WILL BECOME PEOPLE HOMELESS OVERNIGHT

There are currently about 8,500 people who have a roof over their head thanks to Newsom’s Project Homekey, which rents hotel rooms for unshoused people during COVID. Those people will be out on the street if Republicans win the recall. 

MINIMUM WAGE WOULD BE $0

“The ideal minimum wage is $0,” Larry Elder recently said. And you know what? That’s exactly what that asshole would do, and many of you reading this would have your wages slashed. 

WILDFIRES AND GLOBAL WARMING WILL GET WORSE

Fracking and oil drilling will be out of control under a Republican, and Larry Elder has called global warming “a crock.”

6 MILLION KIDS WILL GO HUNGRY

More than six million kids get free meals under a program Newsom initiated last month. That comes to a complete halt under a Republican governor, and literally millions of children will go hungry.

KIDS WILL DIE OF COVID-19

Every Republican in the race says they will repeal the teacher vaccination mandate. That means more COVID in schools, putting unvaccinated children under 12 at an enormous risk.

COVID-19 WILL GET MUCH WORSE

California is the only state in the U.S. where case counts have gone down in the last two weeks. That will not be the case with a Republican governor, who will probably get COVID like Trump and Ron DeSants, and still not learn their lesson.

IT COULD GIVE THE SENATE TO REPUBLICANS

Ancient alien Dianne Feinstein could keel over any second, and a Republican governor would pick a Republican replacement. That gives the Republicans the Senate, and monster Mitch McConnell would be back in power.

    FYI there are 2 things we’re voting on:

    1) YES OR NO On Recalling Newsom

    2) Voting who you would elect if he is successfully Recalled.

    This article is not telling the whole side of the story. And only showing “positive” things Newsom has done while leaving out all the other mess…it’s sad that it is pretty Bias’d journalism….who’s funding this?
