Why We Don’t Need a New Dream Act by Al Ramirez

May 2, 2012
Al Ramirez - Senate Candidate 2012

The Dream Act has been stuck on Capitol Hill for a decade. Now even Marco Rubio is trying to introduce a “Republican version”. I don’t think there’s any such thing. I got involved in the Republican Party during Reagan’s 1980 bid for President because of my two neighbors, Mr. Van Slyke and Mr. Vaughn. They […]

The Race in California is On

April 4, 2012

Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer were the “Dynamic Duo” for the Democratic Party here in California.  They were single handedly responsible for keeping the state Democratic for the last 2 decades.  But if politics has taught us anything it teaches us that times eventually change.  With Barbara Boxer’s close brush with defeat last year it […]

Why Isn’t Anyone Running Against Feinstein?

October 28, 2011
Senator Feinstein - Why Is No One Running Against Her?

She’s down in the polls and had $5 Million stolen from her campaign. Even California might be tough for Obama in 2012. So why isn’t there a solid Republican candidate running against Dianne Feinstein? I could blame Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman considering their loses last year for scaring away any likely GOP self-funder. Look […]

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly About CA Redistricting by Al Ramirez

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly About CA Redistricting by Al Ramirez

We draw the lines sounds like a good idea. But from the whining you hear from both of the parties, neighborhoods and the media this idea sucks. That’s why I think it is a great idea. California has long had a national reputation as some of the most gerrymandered and most incumbent protection driven districts […]

Why I’d Run for the US Senate – Again by Al Ramirez

June 1, 2011
Al Ramirez

Two percent. That’s all the votes I received in 2010.  Even less when you factor California’s total voting age population or tally it against California’s total population.  But, I’d run for the US Senate again. When I announced my US Senate bid against Barbara Boxer on November 11, 2008, I felt a tremendous calling.  We’ve […]

Al Ramirez will not run

Now More Than Ever…But Not This Time I like to say “You Never Lose When You Serve Your Country” and I firmly believe that’s true. However there are times when you can’t win for losing. Some things while a worthy cause are still a lost cause. I believe in miracles and that teamwork can […]

Al Ramirez, the Candidate to Replace Jane Harmon!

February 9, 2011

As you all know, I supported and worked with Al Ramirez in his failed attempt to unseat Barbara Boxer in November.  As you also know, Al was unsuccessful in the primary and Carly Fiorina was the GOP nominee.  Again, as you also know, Carly was shellacked by Barbara Boxer.  Big surprise there?  Not! Al Ramirez’ […]

I’ve Met Jared Lee Loughner More Than Once… by Al Ramirez

January 14, 2011
Al Ramirez

Words can not express the shock, the anger and the frustration of the tragic incidents in Tucson.  However anyone who has been in politics long enough and with any kind of respect for social decorum will have to recall and agree that more than once they have been concerned about meeting a Jared Lee Loughner […]
