"Rushing to the aid of the Economy, Environment, and Education for Californians!"
Paid for by Rush For Governor

Stephen L. Rush
Populist Progressive, Business Innovator, Contrary Economist

Who Has A Plan?

      Stephen L. Rush believes California can be strong again with hard work on the part of government to bring relief to Main Street’s small business, farmers, and middle-class.   Steven brings 17 years of business leadership intuition, game - changing innovation, and keen economic insight.   California’s past two Governors, whether having political or business experience prior to being elected, have both relied on advisors who keep recommending the same political tools that are proven not to work.   Do not somehow pretend the Democrats are somehow different than Republicans when it comes to innovative ideas simply out of your party affiliation.   However, what is true is that Republicans have a different approach and their way generally does not consider the plight of the oppressed.   What is needed is a candidate who has bold fresh ideas and a plan, while quite simultenously does not overburden the taxpayer and provides real relief to Main Street.   That would be Stephen Rush.

“It’s a new day, so now is the time for California to be taken a new way.”

      Rushing to the aid of Californians, there is hope for the hurting and help for the homeowner.   As Governor, Mr. Rush will shorten the economic winter and bridge across the crisis toward growth, not merely to keep from crashing, but to ride the wave of development on the other side.   Specifically, with his “Biggie Plan” for the Economy, Environment, and Education, Rush pledges to lobby for Main Street between inconsecutive terms and redefine credit relief for living expenses, invite technology business by reverse outsourcing desalinization and tsunami warning technology to China and India, artificially widen the consumer population with homeless corporate work-vouchers and former gang-member unionized construction job training, create local energy jobs using carbon reduction savings to produce fuel from waste and farm water, reduce payroll burden by lowering malpractice awards to patient’s potential income and approving alternatives where pharmaceuticals have no treatment, encourage educational vision and rejecting penalty-based standards while funding special education, advance unresolved benefits for homosexual households and raise hope in family units, media, and society for lasting community transformation.

      How can you know whether Stephen Rush will fulfill his promises?   Because Rush said, “As for me and my office, we will serve the oppressed.”   It’s part of his platform and the proof is in the details, as you see here below.   There is no way to fake a plan with so many details.   There is no way to say later, “Oh, I didn’t really have a plan.  After the election I intended on relying on political and economic advisors for that.”   Nope.  

“It’s because Rush said so.”
