9. No Cowardice. It's Davis or Camejo!
DUers keep saying that they want Davis to resign if the pressure gets too much.

I think that's bunk. Two reasons:

(1) What better way to prove that you're weak than to resign rather than face a fight? Did Clinton resign? If Davis resigns it'll look like we're scared. That's almost worse than losing control to the GOP!

(2) What if the economy gets worse? What if the GOP STILL refuses to agree to a budget? Then we've just smoked one of our most promising Democratic politicians by having him replace Davis (now a coward). Who the hell wants to turn Bustamonte into Gerald Ford? Not me.

Davis should fight to the end. And we should threaten to elect the Green if the GOP gets the recall votes.

I'm not even a Green, and this is clear. If the Reich Wing GOP wants to reinact the Weimar Republic in the California Republic they need to understand that the Commies can win too. The only way to make that clear is to humiliate them with the rules they demand.
