Yes, I'm a liberal Democrat, and probably the only one here in the crowd, but I think you'll like what I have to say.
I’m here to urge you to vote NO on Prop 31 and to tell you why.
Because we’re nearing Halloween I thought you’d appreciate this analogy.
Prop 31 is like the razor-blade in the candy apple. You aren’t expecting to find something dangerous wrapped in a nice package, and your inattention can hurt you badly.
Prop 31 is a Trojan horse proposition.
Called the Government Performance and Accountability Act, this new law will amend the California Constitution. The ‘candy apple’ part, the Trojan Horse, is that it restricts the Legislature’s authority to enact any law that increases state costs or decreases state revenues by more than $25 million dollars a year.
That seems like a good thing. But there’s more to this law.
It also expands the Governor’s authority to implement reductions to appropriations in the State budget. You might like that too. Or the shift to a 2 year budget. Sounds good.
But now we’re getting to the razor blade.
This new law, this amendment to the California Constitution, will shift state funds to local governments for the purpose of implementing new ‘Community Strategic Action Plans.’ What does that mean?
For the purposes of quote ‘a prosperous economy, quality environment, and community equity’ unquote state revenue will be shared in supra-governmental, unelected regional entities. Those who are paying attention will recognize the 3 E’s of United Nations Agenda 21/Sustainable Development in this deceptive proposition. Economy, Environment, Equity. This is not just some happy coincidence. This is the legal and funding mechanism for a regional layer of government. You don’t vote for regional representation, as you know. You vote in city, county, state, and federal elections. Agenda 21 is a global plan implemented locally and you see it as regional plans.
Far from being a black helicopter paranoiac fantasy UN Agenda 21 is real and Prop 31 is what it looks like. It is a plan to take state money and allow local entities-- counties and cities--to determine how that money gets allocated as long as it goes for Smart Growth, the preferred development style of UN Agenda 21. The Agenda for the 21st century was signed onto by George HW Bush in 1992. President Clinton created the President’s Council on Sustainable Development for the sole purpose of implementing Agenda 21 in the US.
All federal agencies changed their policies to conform to Sustainable Development principles, and it then moved into the states and local municipalities via General Plans and regional boards.
This is not a conspiracy theory, it is a conspiracy fact. Regionalization is the stepping stone to global governance by creating a parallel government and then funding it. These regions already exist and are administered now by Metropolitan Planning Organizations and Councils of Government like the Southern California Association of Governments.
New urbanism is the goal and you’ll see this as these new Community Strategic Action Plans dictate that your tax dollars go for shifting funds to high density cities. That’s what they mean by ‘a prosperous economy, quality environment, and community equity’. It’s code for redistributing money to cities that agree to the blurring or erasure of jurisdictional boundaries.
The Democrats and Unions are against Prop 31 because they fear a loss of funding. Seeing that in the voter guide might make you Conservatives vote yes.
Here’s your chance to agree with Democrats for once! Finally, something you and your relatives can agree on!
When you see Prop 31 on the ballot remember that ‘razor blade’ in the apple and vote NO.
