You may just have hit on it here... p’raps SOCalPol IS trying to advance the liberal/socialist agenda... Would hardly be surprising.
As the Republican Party continues its steady leftward drift, it's no surprise that Party Firsters and folks who are too scared to take the leap of faith needed to jump to a genuinely conservative third party find themselves advocating for the Socialist agenda.
Nah... I don't think so. At least not intentionally. Sometimes partisanship just masks reality.
Until some folks realize that having an (R) in office (who likes to reach across the aisle on liberal issues but never receives like gestures from the left) is just as dangerous (if not more so) than a Dem, we'll slide faster into socialism than if we were all fighting together against (D) leadership.
Acknowledging McCain as any kind of leader in the party, knowing that he wants to push amnesty and cap-and-trade programs, is just plain idiotic, IMO. Ya can't tell Schwarzenegger apart from Al Gore these days. These so-called "leaders" need to be wholly rejected ASAP before they use their friends in the liberal media to completely take control of our future via a "rebranding" of the GOP.
