DARRYL HALL, San Clemente
People need to research who they are voting for as it relates to City Council. I am not talking Democrat or Republican. I am talking about conservative vs. liberal.
There is a lot of trash talk regarding conservatives and that they are dangerous for our city. If you watch the documentary Seattle is Dying, in it, you will see how they do a Root Cause Analysis. How did Seattle, from 1983 to 1993 voted one of the safest cities in the U.S., shift to now one of the worst?
In the analysis, they look at the City Council and how it changed over the years, shifting slowly from conservative to liberal. They show that back in 1993, City Councilmember George Benson wrote a letter explaining how he was seeing in the city councilmembers that they were leaning more toward being liberal; he predicted the city’s downfall, and today Seattle is an absolute wasteland.
“It is worse than a third world country . . . when looking at the video footage, it is hard to believe this is in America.”
But this condition is not just limited to Seattle; look at Portland, look at Denver, look at Minneapolis. On and on, it is spreading across the U.S. like wildfire and now is heading to San Clemente.
Don’t just vote for someone who seems like a nice man or a nice woman. Where do they stand on conservative issues? When you Google some of the new candidates, you will see they are opposed to many conservative values. Beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing.
If you want to keep San Clemente the beautiful city that it is, vote conservative.
