5th largest economy in the world? The horror.

Let's compare the coasts (dominantly Blue) to the rest, or just an overall red vs blue state comparison. See what you fund, subby, on education level, income, health, etc.

What would CA look like if pensions weren't invested into the scam that is wall street? See what happens when you put pensions into the private sector and the private sector goes tits up?

Bingo.

And if you don't have Democrats you have Arizona. And if you only have RON PAUL left you have Somalia.

What's your point?

Darell Issa's state?

Is Subby retarded? Not an insult, I think it's a reasonable question at this point.

If you want somewhere with no Republicans look at Germany or Sweden. This country would be much better off if we could trade in our Republicans for a good Social Democratic party, and let the Democrats be the conservative party.

We don't really need a clown party.

But... but... We'd have no Michele Bachmann or Steve King or Jan Brewer or a busload of many other people to laugh at.

Seriously. We need the clowns. There has to be clowns. SEND IN THE GODDAMN CLOWNS!

There were also a couple other governors you may have heard of:

Ronald Wilson Reagan

Those two aren't REAL Republicans, though.

Nixon was never Governor. He lost, prompting the famous "You won't have Nixon to kick around anymore because, gentlemen, this is my last press conference" melt down.

No, the country would be better off if we could trade in our Republicans for Conservatives. You know small government, hands off conservatives. Those folks who say abortion, marriage, and health care are states concerns and not any buisness of the Federal government. Conservatives who want the government budget ,the whole budget including the military, to shrink.

Sadly Republicans are no longer conservatives, not sure what we should call them, but not conservatives.

Without Republicans?

The collective IQ of the country would go up, ushering a utopia of open mindedness and progressive thinking.

Oh noes.

Traditionally we needed to have Republicans for their brains and Democrats for their hearts, but it seems to have turned all zombie brain eaters vs Temple of Doom heart rippers lately.

Without Republicans, it would look like Switzerland here.

Without Democrats, America would look like Somalia. Or Mississippi. You know, two third-world places.

Crap, you're right. My bad. Representative and Senator from California, Vice-President and President of the US, but never Governor.

Slaves2Darkness: Those folks who say abortion, marriage, and health care are states concerns and not any buisness of the Federal government.


Because states always handle things just fine themselves. Seriously, if we left everything to the states, segregation would still be allowed, and the South might not have even gotten past slavery.

That's a beautiful sentiment, man.

Slaves2Darkness: Sadly Republicans are no longer conservatives, not sure what we should call them, but not conservatives.


Feudalists? They do adhere to the Southern culture of a handful rich, adored, landowners ruling over a mass of poorly educated people who think "Hey, at least I'm not a slave. That means I can be rich too someday!" That was essentially Americans trying to emulate European feudal culture.

Slaves2Darkness: Sadly Republicans are no longer conservatives, not sure what we should call them, but not conservatives.


Well, if they want to liberally spend more government money on their projects and interests, and liberally expand the government to spy into the private sex lives of citizens and medical records of women, and liberally abuse limited natural resources like oil, and liberally cherry pick which scientists to listen to on issues of evolution, sex education, and global warming... maybe we should call them liberals.
 
2012-07-17 10:49:36 AM  
Because obviously the best source of information on the inner-workings of California comes from the finest conservative, free newspaper Washington DC has to offer.

The Examiner: For when the Washington Times is just too liberal for you!

2012-07-17 10:50:14 AM  
Hey folks, since the article refers to "California, where no non-cyborg Republican has been elected governor since 1994," I'm pretty sure the author is aware of both Schwarzenegger and Reagan, so y'all can stop posting about that.

Didn't the Right Honorable Reverend Emperor Doctor Galactic President Superstar McAwesomeville Sun Myung Kevin Phillips BONG! M-O-O-N Spells "Narcissistic Whackjob" have to sell the paper a few years back for $1? (Or did he buy it back for $1?)

Either way, go be crazy somewhere else.

Serious answer: reactionary, regressive, feudalist, or some mix of those three.

Joking answer: retards, ass mongoloids, deluded morons.

California isn't as liberal as people think. The voted down gay marriage.
They've put several Republicans in the gov's mansion.
Aside from a few liberal enclaves the majority is red.
 
2012-07-17 10:50:49 AM  
Oh yes - California is terrible. All the sunshine and year-around crops and culture and technology is such a burden. DON'T move to California. It's just the worst. If I could only muster the $50 or so it would cost to buy a double wide in the mid west, I would definitely do it ... I just can't afford the $30 heater that I'd have to put under it to keep the pipes from freezing 6 months out of the year.

All these views from mountain tops and beaches and valleys are just terrible. I'd much rather be living in flyover country where everything looks flat and uniform in every direction.

And the government IS the worst. They don't even try to force pregnant women to be penetrated by ultra-sounds when they don't accept the Lord Jesus. Can you believe it? And I remember when I went to public school they made us take all these books home to learn "math" and "science" with ... all I need is my Bible to know how the earth was made.

And the public museums and parks and universities ... they're everywhere. What a WASTE. Do you know how many dollar trees that could have built?
