The Aftermath of California's Special Election


Anybody else feel like they just got back from a football game, and the home team lost 59-0? Some of those propositions were good ideas, yet they all lost overwhelmingly. The (gleeful) views of the L.A. Times notwithstanding, surely the sweeping defeats cannot be blamed solely on the governor's faulty campaign tactics. I wonder if anything can be done to keep California from becoming a permanent haven for liberal Democrat ideas and policies, where labor unions control a Legislature in which every seat is safe?

Comments welcome.

The real problem is that the GOP still listens to people who demand much, but fail to deliver (for whatever reason) at the polls.

At this point, it may be time to resign ourselves to labor union control of California for the forseeable future.

The real problem is conservatives that choose to only support their perfect solution individually and lose tather than settle for an improvement as a team and win. My Congressman (Doolittle) is a perfect example but you could fill a telephone book.
"It's not their fault that voters are stupid," is their mantra.

I feel like someone just gut-punched me. I thought that the Proposition for Parental Notification would surely pass, if nothing else. This morning I feel like selling my house and moving to Texas. Between this and last week's ludicrous decision by the Ninth Circuit Court - I truly feel like I'm living in a socialistic country -- hey, it's Kalifornia!

Short cuts don't work -- time to start winning some hearts and minds. My district was without a Republican candidate for either California legislative offic in the last election. Need to find a candidate for starters. (NOT ME -- Good Lord not me).

Maybe a trip for the state government to bankruptcy court...

Move Hollywood to Canada. You'll get rid of 50% of the liberals in one fell swoop. And they'll achieve their dream of moving out of this horrible, horrible country run by a blithering idiot that stole the election.

California, where the weather grows all sorts of fruits and nuts...
