June 3rd Red Line had my running for District 2 supervisor as a joke. As I stated in my limited campaign, District 2 has a choice. The joke is 19 percent voter turnout. Our visit to the polls at 10 a.m. showed 16 voters at that time.

Rogers was not the only one that was unopposed in Madera.

Question: If California Chrome had run at Belmont unopposed, would he be the Triple Crown winner? If Kyle runs the Daytona 500 unopposed, would you pay to watch? It takes two to make a race.

There is talk about repealing the 22nd amendment so that Obama can run for a 3rd, maybe 4th term. Is this what you want?

If so, soon we won't have elections. I took time to go out and talk to people. I spent some money to put ads in the paper. Had support from others that think the same way. I could have taken my wife to the coast with that money. Instead we stayed here and gave you a choice. We have to support and defend our right to have free and meaningful elections.

Socialism is here. What’s next?
