Letter to the Editor
In 2000 and 2001 California had a major energy crisis because several big energy companies like Enron gamed the system and created artificial energy shortages. The high energy prices were devastating to the California economy – but Davis managed to see us through it and get new power plants online. But what would happen if an actor like Arnold Schwarzenegger were governor and we had an energy crisis? What would Arnold do?
Isn’t that the real question facing the voters of California? In an environment where all of America under the Bush administration is on the verge of economic collapse, you do you trust to get us through the tough times? Shouldn’t California have a governor who knows what he’s doing rather than an actor who is merely playing a role? What would Arnold do?
When it comes down to it, that is the real question. Maybe I could get in touch with the right people in the Davis camp and help them get the right message out. Modeled after the slogan “What would Jesus Do?” it raises the real issue which is – what does it mean for California if we hire an actor to play governor? Can we afford to do that?
