Yes on Proposition 89

We’ve all seen the corrosive impact of Jack Abramoff. Proposition 89 seeks to reduce the power of lobbyists and special interests by imposing strict contribution limits coupled with stringent disclosure and enforcement regulations.

The “Yes on Prop 89” folks have a catchy video. I might actually start watching campaign ads, if they had more of these … đŸ™‚

Featuring: California Nurses, “About time for 89”

It’s about time for Prop. 89
What’s goin’ on in Sac Town is blowin’ my mind
“Big Boys Club” by grand design
Are leaving Californians far behind
Cause in Sac Town – you have to pay to play
Thanks for your vote but you just can’t stay
All you big money boys with all the big green
Take a message: it’s time to come clean

Politicians and big money power
Are tucked away in an ivory tower
Called the Capitol – they got it up for sale
But they’re breakin’ the law and goin’ to jail
Political corruption is on the rise
Donations are comin’ in super-size
Californians need a little bit of love
But we can’t get in to the “Big Boys Club”
Can’t get health if you don’t have wealth
Can’t fix schools if we don’t have tools
Can’t afford the gas, to fill up the tank
Big Boys are takin’ us to the bank
Proposition 89 is real reform
The corporations hate it like a lover’s scorn
They want freedom – to buy politicians
Of course they would rather keep with tradition

    As an avid television watcher, I can’t say that I have ever seen this one on television yet. But by sheer virtue of his web address ( and his rather distasteful commercials (“you Cruz you lose”) Steve Poizner is going to have to work a lot harder for my vote besides co-opting Ah-nold’s slogan and negative campaign ads.

  2. Chris Says:

    This is much better than many of the current top hits!

  3. Joe Says:

    I was wondering what Steve Poizner is about…all I have heard in his ads is what he think Cruz is about…so far Cruz has my vote…I know nothing about Poizner. He should talk about is position instead of neg ads…
