That is a sad commentary... and good luck getting people to actually study issues, they want the issues spoon-fed to them in 10 second soundbites.
The day elections became “beauty contests”, the terrorists won.
We all end up paying for it as a result.
#1 Those paid/bribed through support and employment to vote for those who want everything through the government.
IMO that consists of 32%+ of the vote every election
#2 The rest are mostly those who are not politically active and fall almost always for the commercials about how everything is for the children, firefighters, police and teachers who are going to suffer...which is BS.
What Republicans/conservatives in California are against is an automatic 32%+ that only needs to grasp 18%+ of the non committed vote to win.
Republicans IMO have maybe a 18%+ base of very conservative voters who are independent and into self sufficiency.
They every election have to come up with 32%+ of the uncommitted vote to win.
IMO Republicans have twice the uncommitted vote to win that Democrats do in this state and that is my opinion why we have such a difficult state to gather steam in.
You would think after endless elections with the same children, firefighters, police and teachers threats being used that some would learn from past mistakes, but they don't seem to at all IMO.
