THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

Republican lose yet another Assembly seat

A new Democrat elected by 145 votes. 
There will likely be a recount in the Fox-Smith race, which could push out the final election results even further. Ron Smith was a well-funded Republican out-fundraised Fox better than 10 to 1.  The GOP candidate was defeated in what had been a fairly conservative district.

More Republican Weakness
High Desert district of Palmdale and Lancaster goes Democrat
  • Demographic changes in the once Conservative and Anglo Antelope Valley.
  • Palmdale is now 54% Hispanic and 15% African-American.
  • Lancaster is now 38% Hispanic and 20% African-American.

The final vote update from Los Angeles County on Sunday gave Democrat Steve Fox a slight lead over the presumed Republican victor in the 36th Assembly District, putting the seat in the Democrats' column by a margin of just 145 votes.

Fox trailed Republican Ron Smith by about 2,000 votes the day after the Nov. 6 election, according to local reports, but the gap narrowed in recent weeks as remaining absentee and provisional ballots were counted. The final count by Los Angeles County, one of three counties in the district, put Fox ahead with just over 50 percent of the vote.

A win in the 36th Assembly District gives Democrats control of 55 seats in the lower house – one above the supermajority Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez secured with another Election Day upset reports the Sacramento Bee.

Fox is unlikely to be a sure vote for Democrats in the 2013-14 Legislature, however. The attorney and teacher ran as a Republican in a 2008 Assembly contest and has signed the Americans for Tax Reform pledge against raising taxes.

Ron Smith for Assembly 

Smith said Sunday that he plans to seek a recount. He said a stronger-than-usual Democratic tilt for provisional ballots in his district and other races has left him with the belief that "there is a political group that has learned how to manipulate the election by playing with provisionals."

Those are ballots cast in cases in which a voter who has requested an absentee ballot has moved within a district without updating his or her registration, or when a voter not on the polling place roster shows up in person to cast a ballot.

"No one, including myself or any consultant, could have conceived that I was over three percentage points ahead after the election … and now the provisionals came in … that it would overturn the (results)," he said. "Mathematically, statistically, that just doesn't happen."

Given his lead, Smith had been preparing to be sworn into the state Legislature along with the other 79 members of the Assembly today.

"I had most of my staff getting ready to be hired, my picture was up on the wall, I had my office that was assigned to me, and I already had two pieces of legislation that were going to be introduced Monday," he said.

So the trick is to get Hispanics to conform to 'anglo' culture? It might be possible for their children; but it sure is not worth it. Does some Democrats realize that they are 'anglo' too?

The Democrat Party is an alliance of groups who could really care less about each other: Hispanics, wealthy liberal communities, gays, Blacks, unions etc.

The wealthy West L.A. libs are not inviting poor Blacks over to the house to watch the game.

The GOP must adopt a system of alliances if it wants to continue to exist.

The Hispanic GOP Governors of New Mexico and Nevada plus many new Hispanic Republican Congressmen and Senators prove it can happen.
