As Joe Biden and Donald Trump wrangle over the results of the 2020 Presidential election, a strong pattern has emerged across all 50 states.
According to results on various referendums and ballot measures, voters by and large have rejected most of the Republican Party’s economic platform and the Democratic Party’s cultural program, regardless of which presidential candidate carried their state.
California Rejects Affirmative Action Once Again
In California, where Donald Trump is currently trailing Joe Biden 66 to 34, voters rejected a proposition to restore Affirmative Action by an overwhelming margin.
Prop 16, which is losing 56 to 44, sought to repeal a previous 1996 vote that banned institutionalized race quotas against whites and Asians in education and employment.
While the Golden State has a majority-minority population and is considered the most left-liberal in the country, support from the Democratic establishment, aggressive anti-racist NGO activism and a $31 million dollar ad campaign funded largely by Jews in favor of the repeal failed to sway voters in the end.
Opponents of the measure were generally locked out of the debate, having spent just $1.6 million dollars promoting the opposing position. They are declaring this a win for David against Goliath.
According to political analysts, the only groups that supported Proposition 16 were upper middle class college-educated whites and Jewish capitalists, such as Marc Benioff, Steve Ballmer, Mark Zuckerberg, et al, who spent millions trying to get it passed.
Other demographic blocs were either indifferent or adamantly opposed to the measure, which celebrity advocates, professional activists and local Democratic politicians promoted as a step towards racial justice after a summer of race riots.
The outcome of this referendum is being taken as a popular reminder that the plutocratic left’s anti-white policies do not reflect the will of the people, including many non-whites.
Florida Amendment 2
Another surprising outcome this week was a decision to almost double the minimum wage in pro-business Florida to $15 an hour.
The state’s Chamber of Commerce and Governor Ron DeSantis furiously opposed the amendment. Donald Trump carried Florida by a comfortable margin, but his stance that establishing a living wage is bad for the economy, was ignored.
The ballot measure passed 61 to 39, triggering an automatic bump to the $8.56 minimum hourly rate to $10 and gradually phasing in $1 increases to 2026.
The unforeseen rejection of GOP anti-labor economic orthodoxy in a state that went solidly red in 2020 is as telling as California’s resounding “No” to Affirmative Action.
Nebraskans Combat Usury
The deep red state of Nebraska approved of Initiative 428 in a landslide smack down against parasitism.
83% of voters elected to cap payday loans, typically used to trap working class people in a cycle of debt, at 36% This regulation will drastically lower the current average rate of interest, an eye popping 404%.
Both Trump and the Republican party have worked overtime to further deregulate the payday loan industry while Democrats have traditionally looked the other way.
The disproportionately Jewish predatory lending industry has donated generously to the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee over the last few years. The GOP knows that their corrupt relationship to the industry is universally unpopular, which is why it has repealed regulatory efforts against the practice through edicts by appointees rather than open air Congressional votes.
Republican Voters Prefer Law and Order To “First Step Act”
The Republican Party’s bizarre embrace of “criminal justice reform,” which is seen as a way to release black felons from prison back into the street, was promoted front and center in Trump’s 2020 campaign. Many ads attacked Joe Biden for the ’94 Crime Bill, which enhanced penalties for violent crime in hopes of deterrence, as racist against blacks.
Actual Republican voters rejected the spirit of Trump’s “First Step Act” on Oklahoma State Question 805, where 61% decided to continue the norm of including previous non-violent felony convictions in sentencing procedures.
In Kentucky, Constitutional Amendment 1, won with 63% of the vote. The law, dubbed Marsy’s Law, enshrines victims of crime with rights during court procedures.
While the people of Kentucky already elected to pass the law in 2018, the Supreme Court struck it down in 2019 after the American Civil Liberties Union complained that voters should not have direct influence over the criminal justice system. The ACLU joined the Kentucky Tea Party and state Republicans in opposing Marsy’s Law again in 2020, but the law was passed anyway.
People Want Privacy and Consumer Protections
Michigan Proposal 2, which forces the police to obtain search warrants for electronic data, won out with 89% of the vote.
In California, Proposition 24 passed. It will expand protections for consumers subjected to mass data harvesting from companies, often without their knowledge.
While the country appears to be split 50-50 on who it wants for president, it is skeptical of big business and market liberalism, hostile to “anti-racist” legislation, and wants to punish criminals when asked for input.
Both Democrats and Republicans take the opposite position on these issues, bringing into question what voting is even for.
Even if Donald Trump is able to pull off a victory, the truth is that he rigged the election against himself by governing as a Mitt Romney Republican and running an atrocious TPUSA-approved campaign.
