While the rest of the nation went red in Tuesday's midterm elections, California emerged even bluer. What's going on?
The standard answer is that registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans, and that many decline-to-state voters lean Democratic.
But there's a more telling reason, one that promises to keep California blue for years. The state's rising numbers of new voters - newly minted immigrant voters, minorities and voters between the ages of 18 and 29 - are overwhelmingly Democratic in their preferences.

Do Woodchucks chuck wood?
The problem is, well for us in the other 49, we’ll be picking up California’s tab.
The NEW ballad of Jed Clampett for 2010
Come and listen to a story bout a man named Jed
Poor oil entrepreneur barely kept his family fed
Then one day he was working for some food,
And up through the town come a bumbling clown
(Brown that is, take a toke what a joke)
Well the first thing you know old Jeds taxes are to much to bear,
Kin folk said Jed move away from there!
Said Kalifornia is no place for you to be
So they loaded up the truck and they moved from Beverly
(gon back to the Hills they are, fishn holes, country and western stars)
Well now its time to say goodbye to Jed and all his kin
They would like to thank you folks for kindly dropping in
Youre all invited back again to their new locality
To have a heaping helping of their hospitality
(Redneck Hillbillies, is what the press call em now,
Clingers of bibles and guns and to Obama no bow!
Nice folks Yall come back now, ya hear?)
That is a Federal Republic in action. People can move between the various states based on each state's policies.
Wait till the state goes officially bankrupt and even the most basic services get slashed. Wait till the thousands and thousands of public employees see their pensions and benefits disappear. Wait till all the contractors are told by the Govt. - “sorry, your bill is not going to get paid.” When the finances go completely red - so will the electorate.
But Karl Rove and Bush said that family values don’t stop at the Rio Grande. The Republicans should listen to Rove and Mort Kondracke. The GOP should advocate “comprehensive immigration reform” and make kissy face with La Raza. /s
The reason why it won't is because reality sucks and it sucks extra big when one pretends it doesn't exist.
What conservatives out there have to do -- and really do it out of compassion -- is to be courageous, stay on message and be clear about what they stand for.
The bunch that likes to vote Democrat likes refrigerators and electric lights and televisions that come on when you hit the power button even more.
Can the rest of the country just vote them off the island?
The bottom line, there is not enough money for all the programs. California will soon be on its own as Uncle Sugar is under new ownership. There is no rational reason to live in Cali anymore, if you are there, get out before it is too late.
The problem is Cali is exporting political views, this could be fatal to neighboring states ....
Maybe we will, but they don't get the water. All that stuff flowing past Sacramento can be turned around to go to Fresno!
And they don't get to cross the new national border into the US.
Demographics is destiny, they say. White women decided they preferred feminism to raising, or even having, children.
So they will stay blue: that means they will remain stupid!
california’s a lost cause . Let the rat’s have it!
