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."

The California GOP is in Complete Collapse

Good-Bye Republican Party
  • The California GOP can't find candidates to run for statewide office allowing Socialist Democrats to run uncontested.
  • California Republican voter registration has dropped like a rock down to 28.9% of voters.

(The Sacramento Bee)  -  Four years ago, Kamala Harris narrowly defeated Steve Cooley to become California attorney general, clinching a Democratic sweep in all eight statewide offices.

Fewer than 75,000 votes out of roughly 8.8 million cast separated the two candidates.
Just five months ahead of the primary election this year, Republicans have yet to even field a candidate against Harris.

The lack of competition for the state’s top law-enforcement post and other down-ticket contests, political consultants of both major parties say, underscores the party’s shallow bench and tarnished standing as it copes with the state’s rapidly shifting demographics.

With spring filing deadlines approaching, those closely monitoring statewide campaigns also see gaps for the GOP in the upcoming contests for lieutenant governor, treasurer and controller.

Ron Nehring, former chairman of the California Republican Party, has spent the last week warning that the party risks a drubbing up and down the 2014 ballot.

“This is a real challenge in that we are two steps away from a nightmare scenario where the statewide ticket appears so weak that some Republicans simply give up and throw in with Jerry Brown, creating chaos for Republicans running in competitive seats around the state,” Nehring said.

California voters gather around to see
a rare site - the nearly extinct Republican elephant.

In the last election alone, California Republicans surrendered supermajority control of the state Legislature, lost decisive congressional races and saw their voting ranks drop below 30 percent statewide.

“Their problem is that they don’t just lack a deep bench, their entire arena is empty,” said Jason Kinney, a Democratic political consultant. “California Republicans just don’t have anybody around who can move the needle. They’ve got to rebuild from the ground up, which is going to be a long-term play, and in the short term that’s going to hurt them.”

The new voter-approved primary system, in which the top two vote-getters regardless of party advance to the fall runoff, may only exacerbate Republicans’ problems here.

Given how the primary field is shaping up, it appears inevitable that at least one statewide race will be an intraparty contest between Democrats, said Garry South, a Democratic strategist.

Republicans will not be able to find eight candidates that will finish first or second, he said. That’s a far cry from 1970, when the party held almost every statewide elected office and majorities in both houses of the Legislature. Many of the statewide posts haven’t been held by Republican in more than a decade.

“Republicans have to envision a world where they don’t just have some sacrificial lamb who gets whacked in November,” South said, “but where they don’t even have a candidate on the ballot.”
California Republican Party Chairman Jim Brulte declined to discuss the party’s prospects in statewide races.

In the meantime, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, has yet to draw a major opponent. Controller John Chiang, also a Democrat, could assume the treasurer seat without a fight.

For the full article Sacramento Bee.

A Party of Assholes
GOP Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and his mini-me puppet Lt. Governor Abel Maldonado (backed by GOP legislators) did their very best to destroy the Republican Party by supporting massive tax increases, endless big government spending and debt.
Not content with becoming Democrats, the "small government" Republicans cut a corrupt midnight deal without any public hearings to abolish primaries where party members select their candidates for November.  This was a deliberate act to weaken the no new taxes Conservative wing of the party.
As a side "benefit" of this corrupt top two primary system all smaller opposition political parties and independent candidates would effectively be banned from all future general election ballots.  The GOP and Democrats even made write-in votes illegal and they will not be counted.  The two big parties have now made sure that you will only be able to vote for them in November.  The voters will be allowed no other choices.
Welcome to the People's Republic of California where our "elections" look more like the controlled elections of Communist China.  

Free Elections - What a Concept
Corrupt California Democrats and Republicans joined arm-in-arm to abolish free elections in the state by effectively banning smaller political parties from general election ballots.
The Democrats were happy to ban Leftist opposition like the Green Party which won a Bay Area Assembly seat.  The GOP was also happy to ban right-wing parties like the American Independent Party that dared to run against their candidates.

The corrupt "top two" system would have kept the strong Conservative 3rd party campaign of Jim Gilchrist off the ballot.

Reducing voter choices is just fine with the GOP Elite.

California is well on the way in becoming a one-party socialist totalitarian state.

So very true. As the one-party state becomes secure the Leftist programs they propose become ever more radical.
