We should have the government pass a law stating only certain classes of people may run for office.  Only the people from the government class.  Specialization.  Allow the humxn species to evolve castes that are selected for their role in the collective.  The political class will have to evolve to minimize resource expenditure on limbs and bones.  Only just enough to do their function.  Maybe evolve to reproduce only with machine assistance.  Only the most efficient of the Homo politicalus should live to reproduce, the ones who maximize the efficnecy of the collective, while not expending too many resources on unneeded limbs and organs.

Problem solved.

One can also vote "no" and be done with it.
I will be doing that.

What happens if Gavin Newsom gets recalled but wins as a write-in 🤔

That's odd about this headline to me too.

Social media influencers are the modern celebrities.

Quotings oneself is bad form, but I feel that I should expand- voting yes and then writing in allows all kinds of bad things to potentially happen- In California, we have all kinds of people. I think it only costs about 4500 $ USD to be eligible to run for elected office here, and that is not a lot for some folks.
A NO vote denies the crazy / what have you aspect of the people here to vote for that person.
While Gavin made a few mistakes during the pandemic, and I consider him an idiot - he made some good things happen ( that also helped our neighbours in Oregon and Washington ) as far as disaster prep that I cannot overlook. I will choose to let him run on his record next year, when he is up for re-election.
I do not want another Gray Davis gets replaced by a washed up actor , again.

Those are the stupidest commercials.  And yet, they are the only ones I know of being run by anyone involved in this thing. There's no big name like last time, so do the people behind this really expect to remove Newsome? He won in a landslide last time, he's up for re-election-election next year. This is such a huge waste of time and money.

There was also a depressingly large amount of people who thought that collecting enough signatures was the actual recall.

Unfortunately, money still talks swears and these chuckleheads want to be in power.

At least porn stars provide a valuable service to society. Can't say the same about social media influencers.
