ON THE 2016 VOTE
"NICK'S PICKS" (County-wide Primary) by Nick DieterichHello friends--For the past 23 years, as a conservative, constitutionalist activist, I have aided like-minded local and national candidates, and informing voters throughout the country. I have raised 1,000's of dollars for various vetted candidates, walked scores of precincts, written editorials, and press releases.The recommendations below are my personal, researched suggestions for this June's primary for many offices countywide. When more information presents, I will send out an update. The most conservative, pro-life, constitutionalist candidates are always preferred, some offices the next best candidate is also suggested. As voters, "what do we stand for?" It should matter. --Nick DieterichSpecial Thanks to: Mary Rose Consiglio; Penny Harrington; Paulette Donnellon; FamilyVoterInfo.org; californiaprolife.org; www.judgevoterguide.com; ElectionForum.org; Tri-City Tea Party.Please take with you when voting and send on to friends.For questions, pls contact me at PublicpolicyNick@aol.com. Thank you.President: TED CRUZATTN: Voters of conscience: There IS an option for June 7: Ted Cruz. November is months away. For the June 7 Primary, Choose Cruz and send Trump a message. Trump will win anyway.If California votes for Cruz in the primary then Trump who has already won the nomination has some negotiating to do. After all how could he lose to a candidate who dropped out in the most liberal state in the union? It would be a wake up call. Without some leverage Trump won't negotiate until it is too late. For those of you who believe that Trump is the chosen one hopefully you can see that he could use a little humility.Steve Guffanti, M.D.US Senator: DEL BECCARO49th Congress: (Leave blank)Issa has a 59%, F rating with the ConservativeReview.comFeb 2014, Issa voted for an open-ended debt ceiling; 199 Republicans voted NO.

No on Prop 50!
OPPOSE Proposition 50
On March 28, 2014, the California Senate suspended WITH PAY three state senators:
Leland Yee, criminally charged in federal court with two felony counts of conspiring to import and traffic in firearms, and six corruption counts.
Ron Calderon, indicted on corruption charges.
Rod Wright, found guilty of voter fraud.
A lone senator, Joel Anderson, voted NO to suspending the senators, advocating instead for expulsion. What it the difference?
Suspension pays these criminal senators for the rest of their elected term.
Suspension means that they cannot be replaced through appointment or special election.
Suspension means that their constituents REMAIN UNREPRESENTED the rest of their elected term. (taxation without representation)
Expulsion removes their title and pay, and allows for their constituents to be represented by a replacement.
Now the legislature has put Proposition 50 on the ballot for June 7, 2016.
Prop 50 allows those in the legislature who have been indicted or convicted of felonies charges to be suspended WITH OR WITHOUT pay. It keeps those corrupt, criminal politicians off the taxpayer payroll! THAT'S HOW THEY WILL SELL IT TO YOU, as if the lack of representation issue were not a problem. Prop 50 allows them to keep expulsion off the table, leaving constituents without representation until the next election.
Prop 50 gives legislative leadership more options NOT TO EXPEL fellow Assembly members and Senators who have been indicted or convicted of felonies charges.
Prop 50 isn't necessary because the State Constitution already allows Assembly members and Senators who have been indicted or convicted of felonies charges to be removed from office by expelling them.
Prop 50 allows a 2/3 majority of either house to suspend, with or without pay, any representative, even in the absence of criminal charges, as a means of punishment for speaking or voting against the majority. It removes the representative's 1st amendment rights, and the people's right to be represented by a person of their choice.
Californians deserve the opportunity to replace representatives who can no longer vote to represent them.
Californians deserve representatives who can represent their wishes without fear of punitive suspension.
Vote No on Prop 50 - Stop corrupt politicians both from staying in office and from tyrannizing the minority.
