Memo to the California GOP:
Rough couple of weeks, huh?
What could be worse? I'll tell you what. In the state Legislature, Democrats won supermajorities in both houses. Do you know what that means? It's like handing your teenager a credit card, a checkbook and the car keys so he can drive to an all-night orgy.
(Excerpt) Read more at latimes.com ...
If you do choose to leave, please go to a true battleground state.
Haha -- more like a two year orgy.
In other words, revert to being teen-agers.
Yep - Republicans need to moderate their tone.
Maybe reach across the aisle once in a while and work with libs.
Only that can save the party. :)
I can save your time reading the article. The writer’s advice is for Republicans to become Democrats.
I don’t think he has too offer any advice. It looks like they already are.
More advice from that voice of conservatism, the LA Times. Baloney. There’s always another choice. Republicans in California should keep quietly working to convince more people to be Republican. Republicans keep looking down the road and worrying. Stop it. What is the worst thing that could happen to California? What’s the most likely thing that will happen to California? The leaders of the Democrat party are grifters. Understand that and use it to your advantage. The Democrat leaders don’t want communism. They know well that they’ll be the first ones sent out to pick weeds in the onion fields. They just think they’re clever enough to squeeze some more money out of the taxpayers without destroying the state. I hate to ever recommend lawyers, but find a good tax lawyer. Make it a game to legally beat the state out of every dollar possible. Quit funding Democrats through businesses that donate to the Democrats. Have a margarita! Go to the beach! Those grifters wanted power. Let’s see how the Democrat voters like it. Life’s great as long as the federal government can borrow money. Watch out if they can’t. The first ones to suffer will be the Democrat voters who asked for it.
He’s a big time lib and that article was a tongue and cheek swipe at the GOP. He doesn’t give a rats behind for Republicans. He and the rest of the Golden State lefties are in nirvana right now. Hey Steve, can’t wait for the upcoming articles you write when you’re begging the federal government to bail out your state after Moonbeam and Friends ruin what’s left of it and they tell you to go pound sand.
Hey, Steve-O I’ve got news for you. The LA Times is going down with the ship. My advice? Take a more conservative stance and stop endorsing libs and lib props.
California is a preview of what is going to happen to the entire nation. Limbaugh, Fox News, and all the conservative talking heads played us all for fools. “The polls are wrong.” “It will be a Romney landslide.” What a bunch of bullshit. I believed them, and now I feel like an idiot for not seeing it coming. The non-white minorities and the moochers (often one and the same, but not all moochers are non-white) run this country now. They will keep electing politicians who promise them free stuff. We have passed the tipping point where the parasites now outnumber the producers, and no amount of rebranding of the Republican party is going to help us. The Democrats own the media. They own the education establishment. They own the parasite vote. This country is finished. We are going to be a socialist nanny state. They will come for our guns. They will take away talk radio. They will shut down FR and silence all opposition. Idiot Sean Hannity and his “just wait till 2016” crap makes me laugh. We’re not going to win any more elections. We only have a shot at restoring this country when it falls because the statists run out of money and there is a total collapse. We might restore the Republic out of the ruins of the big government nanny state, but forget about elections or democracy. We are finished.
Which is the same message as the Romney supporters that were not ABO voters.
As we have seen this week, FR has a lot of people that actually wanted Romney as the nominee, people who actually prefer his William Weld agenda.
Each state gets it's fullshare of existing water rights WITHIN the state boundaries.
I think that gives Eastern California a powerful lever ~ and as long as they don't waste it they could even free up some space on the beach.
Hire a lawyer to squeeze every penny out of the tax code just to pay my lawyer? What’s the difference?
Good. Let California have a taste of Dem absolute rule.
The place will look like Detroit.
Get out while u can. Turn CA over to Mexico.
If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.
One thing that never happens with a Democrat supermajorities,audits most of them have more houses and toys one could only dream of.
Yes an influx of of a couple hundred thousand Voting Conservatives into Ohio could change us back to Red.
In other words, stop grossing and go to the orgy with your teenager.
The “Free S**t Army” wants Republicans to get in a bidding war with democrats to see who will promise the most free stuff.
Going to a red state will increase the population of that state in the census, giving that state more weight in the electoral college.
You make excellent points. The country is finished and we'll never see anything like it again in our lifetimes. To paraphrase Reagan, we are the last best hope for freedom in the world. When the U.S. is done, where do you go? As for a Republic rising out of the bankrupted nanny state...forget it. It took the likes of Washington, Madison, Jefferson , Franklin and Adams to create this one, and I don't see any of their kind on the political horizon.
Sorry to be so depressing but I've been really down since Tues, and I plan on doing what the rest of the country obviously does, sit back, watch reality TV, refuse to be informed and just vote for whoever promises the most "free stuff".
Yes, it makes me indescribably sad. Rank and file conservatives had the heart to win, but we were failed by our so-called leaders. Now those leaders cant wait to make a deal with Obamugabe on taxes, immigration, etc... Sellouts all.
I plan to keep my head down, make as much money as I can, take care of myself and those I love, and wait for the welfare checks to stop. Only then can we think about restoring a once great country.
I’d love to say that you’re both wrong but you are only too right. My parents escaped from the Communists only to be here again. Everything you both said is true, imo.
They already came for our world’s finest healthcare and are in the process of destroying that. I fought it as hard as I possibly could, to no avail as Comrade Giffords threw her district under the bus.
I feel like one of the last people standing/working in my town and I’m not exaggerating. Half of this the town is on welfare and/or meth/crack. After, they seize my 401K and the last American jobs in my company are done, I too am turning into a looter parasite. (ok, probably not really but at least going to minimal work, just enough for the mortgage and pets)
I’ve never collected one dime of anything, am penalized for not having offspring (especially the anchor baby kind that attend all the schools around here), and have been paying in (aka taxed in their Ponzi schemes) for umpteen years. I’m over being their slave while the rest of the moochers sit around with their greedy paws out for more of our money.
Do it if it makes sense for Return On Investment (ROI). If not, don’t do it.
Notice how it is always about how the GOP “marches to the
right”? By definition we don’t march, we stay put. Let’s be
be clear. It is the liberals who are willing to drive the car down
Hwy 1 around Big Sur at 90mph, midnight, with the lights off.
The ideal GOPer as described in the article now owns a home
in California. His name is Mitt Romney. The only problem is
that newspapers like the LA Times can never be honest enough
to tell the truth about people like Romney when the choice is
between Romney and a real moonbat lib.
sure, so then the cartels can more easily enter the rest of the country?
Advice to California, go ahead and mint your own money and you’ll find out right quick what you’re worth sovereign. When the shtf, Cali won’t be anyone’s idea of paradise...
Hey, GOP. Be the taxman for the Democrats. That’s the ticket!
Here’s a plan for California conservatives: Quit the GOP, re-register as Democrats, and make common cause with the State’s conservative Dems.
There are really 3 political parties in California; The Liberal Democrat/RINO Party, the conservative Democrat Party, and the tiny remnant of the GOP. A look at the map proves this.
Democrats now have a super majority in the legislature. That means that a map of Senate and Assembly districts is mostly blue. However, maps of the returns for the propositions aren’t mostly blue; they’re mostly red. The State’s liberal/RINO heartland is concentrated along coast. The eastern part of the State, while Democrat, is far more conservative. Prop 30 won along the coast while Prop 32 won the interior.
So why jump ship? The RINOs in the State GOP hate conservatives. They loath the TEA Party more than Democrats do. They would rather lose an election than see a conservative win and they have been sabotaging conservatives in this State for years. So if we can’t make a difference in the CA-GOP, then why not try to help conservative Democrats? The maps show that they’re out there, but they aren’t a majority of their party; the LA and San Francisco machines run right over them. Conservatives who’ve been exiled from the State GOP could make up the difference.
Why not rot the Democrats’ super majority from the inside out? All it would take are a few more pro-gun, pro-life, anti-tax, free-market, conservative Dems to gum up the works in Sacramento. They exist, but they need a little help.
The next meeting of the CA Republican Party will be in the back of an old VW Beetle, parked in the Mohave. The meeting time will be when the 2 of you gets there!! /s
I wish this guy had said this at the outset, it would've saved me the time of reading his piece of crap article.
Anyone who cannot see that it isn't the GOP that has moved has his head too far up his arse.
You're a great American...yukyuk...
His schtick is way dead.
Hannity is like listening to a political radio Disney...Him having his own show, proves political Pollyanna's abound.
Rush isn't much better, as he got too fat, too rich, too disconnected from real life.
Bet the rent, free America and smaller less controlling, less intrusive government will not be coming back by traditional means.
If it were me, I'd pick this option. Although, contrary to the author's assumption, I don't "hate". That's the province of most whacked out liberals I've run into, no matter how much they try to hide it. But, I am learning to, compliments of people like this author.
Leave, and let these people roll around in the muck they've created.
Nonono go to Blue state. Too much chance republicans from Kali are Arnold types.
Do you want to know a secret? - ALL governments of man are CORRUPT, only some a little less than others. - It’s a “sin problem”. - Look up; and BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD!! Soon, “the Government shall be upon his shoulders”. - Gee, that makes me want to attend a Christmas presentation of “HANDEL’S MESSIAH”, while we still are free to do so.
” . . let these people roll around in the muck they’ve created.”
Exactly. In the Book of Revelation, there is a reference to a time when it is the only way . . . “let him who is filthy be filthy still (peacefully). . . “ - This may well be that time.
The article makes me sick. And the comments. People are so stupid. Wanting not to spend money we don’t have, and then punish the few in this state who are hiring people. I wish we could have a journalist season where we could shoot them. Not really. But this guy is so dead wrong about us and the state.
No, you're wrong. A Democrat is a liberal is a progressive is a socialist is a communist. There IS NO "DEMOCRATIC PARTY" here in California, or the USA as a whole. We have only Communists, and Republicans.
Every Democrat is a Communist traitor. It's just that simple. Really.
The Democrats are tax masters they don’t require extra help.
