Some years ago, Hispanic Republican state legislators reached a high water mark of five members in the California State Assembly (out of 80 members). When they gathered for breakfast, they were a de facto Hispanic caucus meeting outside the formal California Latino Legislative Caucus, because they were not members of the taxpayer-supported and financed Latino Caucus.

Looking east to Washington, we see the same problem. The Congressional Hispanic Caucus also does not allow Hispanic Republicans into its exclusive club.

In the not too distant future, latinos will be the majority in both the electorate and state legislature (as well as major cities). The latinos will squeeze out and replace most white and black politicians, especially in the dem party.

This will put CA in an odd situation. While the latinos will be the majority and in control, they won’t become major wealth contributors to the state economy. The vast majority of latino voters will remain less than middle class. There is a reason Mexico doesn’t have a space program.

This sort of class lopsidedness produced aparthied in South Africa. What will it create in California? How will the productive and the wealthy actually respond to lower class control?

My guess is we won’t go over a cliff. CA will just devolve into 3rd world status.
