Advice to California's GOP: Leave or better yet, change
Los Angeles Times ^ | November 12, 2012 | by Steve Lopez

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.

If you do choose to leave, please go to a true battleground state.

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.

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.

The solution is to balance the new state of East California against the new state of Puerto Rico.

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?
