I am running for Governor because California is in crisis and needs the kind of strong leadership and sophisticated business sense that I can provide to help restore it. California is big business. I have been a businessman for 35 years. I can do a better job at balancing the budget than those pinhead bureaucrats in Sacramento. I have a simple idea of how to eliminate the deficit without increasing anyone's taxes or cutting funding for any programs—and that is to expand California gaming to include slot machines for all private clubs. State revenue from this would easily enable lawmakers to balance the state budget. My goal is to revive our schools, create secure jobs, lower our water and gasoline bills, as well as our rising insurance costs; and I will fight to create a decent health care system that all Californians can afford. California is the most progressive state in the union and I'm sure its citizens would welcome having a smut peddler who cares as their Governor. I am a staunch civil libertarian; I have fought for most of my adult life to expand the perimeters of Free Speech, even taking a bullet for the First Amendment. People who know me know that my primary concern is basic personal freedoms for all of us—and I will be diligent in securing those freedoms for all Californians.
