California’s one-party government of dependants
Alexis Zarkov writes:
For many years, the Republicans have frustrated attempts to raise taxes in California because state law requires a two-thirds majority to pass this kind of legislation. With election 2012, for the first time since 1933, the Democrats have two-thirds of the seats in both the State Assembly and the State Senate. The weak, faltering, mostly irrelevant, California Republican Party has become a complete nullity. We now have a one-party state in California. Moreover, with the new rules, I could only vote for a Democrat as my representative in Congress. That’s right, two Democrats came in first and second in the primary, and no Republican appeared on the ballot for District 15. No Republican holds any national or state seat anywhere in the San Francisco Bay Area. California has become like Mexico under the Institutional Revolutionary party (PRI), which held continuous power in Mexico for 71 years. I think it’s time to leave California.
