I agree with NetSurfer - only half of California needs to succeed - the western half! My county voted for the President, 62%! Better than many Texas counties. I am sick of the Republicans writing us off. A few years back there was an initiative to split the state - north and south. It should have been - east to west. Look back to CA history - CA originally wanted to join the Union as TWO states, but they were not allowed to because of the slavery issue. The wimps in Congress wanted to keep the pro-slavery/against-slavery factions evenly divided so they wouldn't have to deal with the issue. It's time to DEAL WITH IT! At the very least we should have an initiative that splits our electoral college vote based on popular vote. The dems are always screaming about "DISENFRANCHISED VOTERS". How about the millions of conservative CA voters who never have their vote counted in national elections?
No, not all of the western half. Plenty of good old GOP here on the coast: Ventura, San Diego and Orange counties. We don't plan on seceding with the wing nuts in SF and LA.
I think part of the problem is the republican party committe chairman in this state. Sundheim for example. Why in the world did they promote Bill Jones, then when he was elected in the primary ignore him??EGAD! my neighbor could have done a bette job against Babs Boxer. As I posted earlier another part of the problem is redistricting the state is redistricted to suit the democrat.
