Tom McClintock's New Watchdog Group (email)
CARepublic.com ^ | February 2, 2007 | Tom McClintock

Posted on 02/02/2007 4:31:28 PM PST by pogo101

Like you, I have been watching the disastrous turn to the Left that is now taking place in Sacramento – and like you, I don’t intend to sit idly by. Spending is growing faster and the deficit is growing bigger than under Gray Davis. The Governor who promised to “cut up the credit cards” has doubled our debt burden in just three years. And 72 hours after he took the oath of office, the Governor who promised never to raise taxes proposed the second biggest tax increase in California’s history to provide free health insurance to illegal aliens.

I have formed a committee called “Citizens for the California Republic.” Its purpose is provide the 75,000 citizen politicians like you who supported me in the recent elections with a steady stream of information and practical suggestions to enable every one of us to make our voices heard.

Our first project is completed: a new web site at CAREPUBLIC.COM, which will include a daily blog, legislative alerts and an action center to make it easy for you to hold our politicians accountable for their actions. I expect in the next several weeks to roll out our first policy initiative – a right to vote on all tax increases.

You can learn more at our new web site, CAREPUBLIC.COM.

Sincerely,

Sen. Tom McClintock

Hope it is OK to reprint this email we just got from Tom McClintock. I was crushed to see him lose the state's Lt. Gov. race last November and hope this new group can carry the common-fiscal-sense torch.

As a former Californian who was in McClintock's district, what is his political future? And is he still Senator.

We moved a year after Arnie was elected, and I voted for him. Since we left the state in 2004, I can't believe the stories we hear coming out of there. I'm glad we left when we did.

ping-a-ling!

I guess I was right when I said that McClintock didn't support Ahnold. I wonder if anybody is going to "call his office" and verify this? LOL

Go Tom!

He was re-elected to a 2d 4-year term in the CA state senate in 2004. State law limits him to that 2d term; he is "termed out" of THAT office, anyway, after 2008.

Yeah, I had the same reaction: Perhaps not the most easily-parsed wad of letters. Only after a bit of staring did I figure it's meant to mean "Ca[lifornia] Republic dot com."

Well, don't git me wrong... I like it. CA's state flag has in bold caps across the bottom "CALIFORNIA REPUBLIC!"

Only trouble is... with the referendun, recall and initiative processes, it's more of a "DIRECT DEMOCRAZY!" This makes it totally ungovernable, IMO!!!

Don't git me wrong, I think Tom's the best statesmanlike politician CA's had since 2002, running for statewide office, however... I'm almost annoyed at him for not recognizing what was being done to him and how willingly he just bent over and grabbed his ankles, especially during this last campaign!!!

I'm not so disturbed that the Senator made a deal with Orange County devils for campaign support but I am disappointed he couldn't predict that his new, European buddy would turn on him in the eleventh hour.

My viewpoint is that the Senator is pretty solid and he just might have won if he had turned on the imported, political whore once the CAGOP publicly announced the Senator's candidacy. I just can't see that Sundheim could have done much else to sabotage him.

The Senator was the one voice in California politics who speaks with enough authority to have seriously undermined the Austrian's credibility. California's MSM would have given the Senator's criticism wide coverage (for free) in an effort to bolster Angelides' failing campaign.

Had the Senator exposed the Austrian's financial shams he would have turned the gubernatorial contest into a three way race and eliminated Garamendi from the public spot light. Even a third place finish in the gubernatorial contest would have given the Senator the Lt. Governor's chair.

Thanks for the Ping. Senator McClintock is brilliant and still effective as a Senator. We'll help get the word out on his New Watchdog Group. Cheers!

"Senator McClintock is brilliant and still effective as a Senator."

I thought he was termed out at the first of this year. Was I mistaken? Is it the first of next year? What???
