Congressman Farr is honest, straight-forward and cares about his constituents. I have met him more than once and found him to be very open and sincere. He has always championed the Cental Coast and our natual beauty and he has worked hard to protect the oceans. I have voted for him before and I will again.
Sam Farr is either an honest, straight-forward man who has been dupped into working against this district for the last 16 years, or, people who want to cheat you out of your birth right might not always tell you the truth, and appear like villans. Before you vote for Sam Farr again, look at the bribes it took to pass Obamacare. Look at the businesses that will be out of business with cap and trade. Look at the umemployement figures and the pointless stimulus package. Go to youtube and watch the Santa Cruz riot, the marches in Watsonville and Gilroy, and the refusal of the school system to allow the wearing of American Flags. Then, vote.

I forgot to mention, Sam Farr is the problem.

Gary Richard Arnold is the Answer.

There is another choice and that is to write-in Mike LeBarre. I have met this guy and he has what it takes and more important you can tell he will tell you the truth. In my opinion he is the only one that can unseat Farr http://www.mikelebarre.com/

Sam Farr's immigration voting record is posted on betterimmigration.com Must be a D or F. Web site www.billionamericans.com shows that Feinstein called California 'an immigration disaster" in 1995. Latinos are projected to grow from 11 to 31 million first half of century as non-Hispanic whites stay at 16 million. www.dof.ca.gov Better work to get Sam our of there.

Here is an interesting snippet courtesy of a demographic report from the State of California.

California County Race / Ethnic Population Estimates and Components of Change by Year, July 1, 2000-2008
www.dof.ca.gov/research/demographic/reports/e...

I quote from the report:

"The CHANGES FOR THE WHITE POPULATION IN CALIFORNIA in the 2000-2008 period have been UNPRECEDENTED IN THE STATE’S POPULATION HISTORY. Whites experienced natural decrease of population (that is, an excess of deaths over births) in all eight years and EXPERIENCED NET OUTMIGRATION IN SEVEN OF THE EIGHT YEARS. Net migration was positive only in 2000, with a modest gain of about 91,000 that year. NET OUTMIGRATION not only began the following year but increased every succeeding year through 2006, when it was about 121,000."

Whites, according to the report, are the single largest ethnic/racial group. Consequently, they are also the single largest block of taxpayers. Could this exodus be due to the failed policies of the California government, including excessive spending, high taxes on wealth producers, generous social benefits to non-citizens, and lack of immigration enforcement?

In regards to the last sentence, in a word, YES !
Even I left CA..

I waited in line, paid the price, and came to the U.S. legally. I worked for a living, paid my way, but eventually refused to see the dollars I paid in State taxes/fees be used for "free" social welfare progams for illegal aliens and their anchor babies.
My family and their needs come first. End of case.
