    A little insight to some of his... Ideas

    "On the right, there are his proposals to make all coronavirus safety measures optional, to ditch income tax for anyone making less than $250,000, to use the National Guard to get all unhoused Californians off the streets and to give trained gun owners more rights. His introduction video also features clips from Fox News and from conservative media host Ben Shapiro."

    Stuff in Bold is pretty disturbing. Could you imagine Cali being run like Florida or Texas

    There has to be a trade off not to tax anybody making under $250k

    O it's gonna be a complete gutting of education funding and any kind of social safety net. It's the Yang playbook because he also wants UBI. Which means the UBI will substitute any benefits people receive in one lump sum which will of course be MUCH less than the benefits.

    I watched a few videos from this dude some months back.. guess he made his money taking a huge loan out and buying tesla pre-split, which was pretty funny to find out because he was talking about financial responsibility or something similar in the one video I was watching. He's capital brain poisoned pretty good. He was crying about a potential roll-back of the real estate tax roll-over exemption from biden. Slumlord stuff.. In his whining he said something about "you guys know me, I don't care about politics, I play it down the middle". That's when i tapped out.

    Then a couple months later he's running for governor. Checked out his platform and off memory "future school" was when the indifference moved to 'fuck this, dude'.. essentially starting job training at 14 whether vocational or otherwise. Just incredible to think about as an improvement for society as we're hurdling towards automation. I think he's dangerous perhaps not maliciously, but out of ignorance and hope this thread isn't bumped sometime later this decade as he runs for president or something stupid as shit

    I dunno, on the one hand there's that reality. And on the other this seems like a good threadworthy thing to get outraged about after watching way too much YouTube. YouTube algorithm 1, displaced enthusiasm for another exciting season of Miami football 0.

    He made most of his money early as a real estate agent, flipping homes and buying rentals. Sense then, he has made a lot money off of his YouTube channel and has rolled those profits into Tesla stock, some other stocks and crypto.

    There’s recall (insert governor here) a few times every year. How often do governors get recalled?

    I wouldn't be remotely surprised if the recall goes through - I'm on a lot of city/state calls regularly and he has lost a lot of Democratic support.

    Zero chance that a Republican gets elected - but I wouldn't be surprised if he gets recalled.

    Also, I don't know how much they're spending but in my area every commercial break on youtube or local tv includes an Elizabeth Warren ad supporting Newsom.

    It's probably the most aggressive ad campaign I've seen since I've lived here in terms of volume.

    Presumably he could moot the recall effort by resigning right? Just pass the government to his Lt Gov and the recall dies?
