Would you like to win the California Lottery?
The odds of winning are 1 in 80 million. But it could happen. With me as Governor, your chances would actually be actually better, with my Raffle-Lottery idea.
On the other hand, what are the odds of my winning the gubernatorial primary against billionaire Meg Whitman, who has spent nearly 100 million dollars on her campaign, or the multimillionaire and political insider Steve Poizner?
Well, I'm one of about 8 people running for the Republican nomination about of a state of nearly 40 million people.
But my real odds are much greater.
First, I have to rely on a local, state and national objective journalists and commentators on TV and cable broadcast media to let you know that I'm running. Those journalists and commentators are supposed to believe that the public has a right to know, and there is also the law of equal time.
Do you remember Jim Carrey as Lloyd in the 1994 blockbuster hit "Dumb and Dumber"?
Here's my adaptation:
Steve Mozena: I want to ask you a question, Californians, straight out, flat out, and I want you to give me an honest answer. What do you think are the chances that a citizen of California like you will be voting for a guy like me as a write-in candidate for Governor?
You, a Californian Citizen: Well Steve, that's difficult to say, you really don't...
Steve Mozena: Hit me! Just give it to me straight! I have tried really hard to serve you. I really want to get you and California out of this financial mess. The least you can do is level with me. What are my chances?
You: Not good.
Steve Mozena: [Gulps] You mean, not good, like one out of a hundred?
You: I'd say more like—one out of a million.
Steve Mozena: So you're telling me there's a chance. Yeah!
My fellow Californian, give me that chance here in this primary election for the Republican nomination and write my name in, Steve Mozena for Governor of California.
Also, as a favor, call your local news stations and national TV and cable news networks and tell them to talk to Steve Mozena about his campaign. The days are short. The election is June 8th, four days after my fiftieth birthday. And please check out my talks on www.youtube.com. You gotta see them! In a series of short talks I lay out why I want to be the next governor of California, and what I propose to do when in office.
Do you really want fiscal accountability? Do you really want a less expensive college education? Do you really want a job or to be your own boss?
I can help my fellow Californians achieve those dreams.
But first we have to take the lying and the dishonesty out of politics. Can we do this? I think so.
As a write-in candidate for the Republican primary on June 8, I have a concrete proposal that will keep our California government honest, accountable, and fiscally sound.
First, we must post all the government finances to the web on a daily basis, like an online checking account. This will eliminate fraud and waste and allow all residents of California to see exactly where their money is going. I will start with posting all the governor's office finances as well as the California Lottery's daily finances to the web.
I have been advocating this measure for 10 years. I have written to several U.S. Presidents, all the members of Congress, 50 governors, the mayors of the 200 largest cities, two California governors, all the California Legislature and even the current mayor of Los Angeles and its City Council. See www.postthefinances.com
Many people agree that is a good and necessary idea, and it’s about time someone acted on it.
Second, I will save California taxpayers billions of dollars by transitioning the state to an all-online college education system, retaining just two brick-and-mortar anchor colleges, one in Northern and one in Southern California.
Third, I plan to revitalize small business by promoting "Be Your Own Boss" Workshops for Inventors, Business Owners and Entrepreneurs at local convention centers and community centers across the state. This will cover everything from swap meets to street vendors to home-based businesses to online business. All the necessary government agencies will be there as well. So all who wish will leave the workshop as business owners. A California dream is an American Dream.
Of course, in the primary the only way this can happen is if voters write my name in. This will take a little work, but at least my last name isn't Schwarzenegger or Villaraigosa.
It's Steven Paul Mozena. That's Steven. That's Paul. That’s M-O-Z-E-N-A. Steven Paul Mozena.
Please write in Steven Paul Mozena for the office of Governor or your vote will be disqualified. You must write my full name in on the ballot. We both want the vote to count!
If I win, we all win.
Write-In Candidate for
Governor of California
