A lot of people want to know why a blogger from Rocklin has come in and set Amador County on fire.
IT is very simple.
Arnold Zeiderman is a liberal Republican that has been working to undermine the values of the Republican Party. His vision is dead wrong.
As a young activist 15 years ago, I went to a campaign school. Something I learned in that school stuck in my mind, “You win by contrasting yourself from your opponents!”
Democrats believe in more government, Republicans believe in Freedom, Dems Abortion, Reps Life, Dems situational values, Reps Traditional Values, Dems lie, cheat, steal, commit election fraud… Republicans play by the rules.
What I learned is that the GOP is infested with conflict-avoiding spineless weasels in its’ leadership, who would much rather re-arrange the deck chairs on the Titanic than stand up and fight for anything. What I learned is that the GOP is infested with as many ideological whores and power-grabbers as the dems are. It’s worse for Reps because everyone knows Dems use drugs, cheat on their wives, rig elections, take bribes etc – but when Republicans do it, it looks 10000% worse because we campaign on values! (Maybe that’s why the Liberal Republicans are so obsessed with wanting to change our party…)
I watched as Arnold Schwarzenegger’s brand of Republicanism torched our brand. In Placer County – we went from 52.1% Republican to around 48% Republican. Statewide it has been a bloodbath from 36% down to 30.4% while the Dems are holding steady.
I have been a state officer in the California Republican Assembly (referred to as the CRA) for 9 years. I am the Sgt. at Arms. I refuse to sit idly by while the only political party I have ever known gets flushed down the ethical toilet. The CRA promotes 14 principles of Conservative Values and these are what I fight for. Amador County does not have a CRA Chapter – but I would help form one if people were interested in starting one.
Arnold Zeiderman believes Republicans like me are the problem with the GOP – he has said it with his own mouth. Arnold Zeiderman was recruited to run for California Republican Party (not the CRA, but the actual party called CRP) Vice Chairman Northern Region by David Stafford Reade, State Senator Doug LaMalfa and a few others. Reade was paid by Billionaire Charles Munger to lead an effort to re-write the Republican Party Platform – an effort Zeiderman supported along with Doug LaMalfa (Via his delegates to the CRP).
That being said, Robin’s opponent came to our Nevada County Republican Central Committee meeting and told us that we needed to get away from our “rigid positions” and compromise. – This was from Barry Pruett, a Nevada GOP Central Committee member who was present when Arnold Zeiderman said these words.
Ed Rowen – a member of my own Central Committee (Placer County) said he spoke to Arnold Zeiderman on the phone and Zeiderman refused to take a stand on the life issue. (Zeiderman later came out as pro-choice)
These are the values that Arnold Zeiderman are promoting in the name of the Republican Party – and now he has made the Jeff Seaton race all about him… hence his obsession literally imposing his will to get the Central Committee to endorse Jeff Seaton. I have exposed Jeff Seaton as one of the most troubled candidates I have ever seen, malpractice, abusing crime victims, tabloid personal conduct and personal debt porportional to the federal government. These aren’t Republican values and we should not be endorsing those.
I am deeply concerned about what the Republican Party stands for and Arnold Zeiderman is one of the poster children for what is wrong – especially since he is the Vice-Chairman Northern Region for the California Republican Party.
