California seems to be a lost cause. Politically the state is a liberal cesspool run by self-serving leftists trying to sow the seeds of division and discord.
While there are still deep red pockets of California, particularly in Northern California, the larger cities have turned into post-apocalyptic hellscapes of crime, drugs, and homelessness.
Major corporations and residents are fleeing the state en masse. Hollywood stars, sports teams, corporations, and anyone with the means are packing up and heading east.
And who can blame them? Lower taxes, less regulation, less crime, and a brighter future await anyone leaving the so-called “Golden State.”

So, how do we reverse the course and save the most beautiful state not named Florida? Good question. The obvious answer is a change politically, from the top down.
So how does that happen? Since California is so deeply blue and infected with the woke mind virus, it will take someone universally loved with a history of being beloved by Californians.
Enter Los Angeles Dodger and San Diego Padre great Steve Garvey.
The former long-time first baseman is reportedly considering running for U.S. Senate in California. Which side of the aisle is he on? Both sides are recruiting him, but apparently, he has some common sense and leans slightly right. Check this out.
Former Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Steve Garvey is reportedly considering running for U.S. Senate in California.
Andy Gharakhani, a Republican strategist, told the Los Angeles Times that he’d been approached by multiple parties.
“He is being contacted by leaders up and down the state,” Gharakhani explained. “They’re recruiting him to run from both sides, Republican and Democrat, and he’s seriously considering it. We should have a decision made here in the next few weeks.”
Being a person of some experience, Garvey is 74, and the prevailing logic would dictate that he would be a Republican. In fact, GOP members in California should hope he leans right as he is hugely popular in Southern California. In fact, despite playing a short time in San Diego, he is so revered they retired his number.
Garvey is loved in Southern California, and for good reason.
Garvey was a 10 time MLB All-Star and won a World Series with the Dodgers in 1981, but has no experience in politics.
According to the report, he’s predominantly met with Republican leadership in California. That would imply he’s likely to run as a Republican, and considering his top issues, that’s not surprising.
Cost of living, safety and quality of life concerns are set to be his focus, if he does agree to run.
Those are indeed the three biggest issues facing Californians. The cities have become absolute shells of their former selves as crime and drug use has run rampant under Democratic leadership.
If there was a time for a local celebrity to step up and start a quest to save California, it is now, and Steve Garvey might be the man.
He does have name recognition and popularity in the LA area. Possibly San Diego too, considering the Padres’ bizarre choice to retire his number after a few seasons with the team.
Given the incredibly poor track record of Republicans in California though, maybe a “celebrity” running is exactly what they need.
It doesn’t matter if it is a former baseball legend or a hobo; anyone willing to step up and take California back is worth considering. Hopefully, Steve Garvey is stepping up, and we can start the slow process of making California livable again.
