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."

California to host 2nd of 9 GOP presidential primary debates

Nancy Reagan with 2012 GOP presidential candidates

Caifornia - The #2 Debate

  • Primary?  Why?  So mouth-breathers can vote for the candidate with the most special interest purchased TV ads? 
  • If the California GOP cares at all about reaching out to average voters (which they don't) they should have Iowa-like grass roots caucuses at every high school in the state.  Right-of-center voters can gather in person on a Tuesday night, debate the candidates and elect delegates to county conventions.  The county conventions in turn can meet and elect delegates to a state convention.  Have the state convention elect 75% of the delegates to the GOP national convention.
  • This is called democracy and is great publicity for the party.  A chance to involve people at the local level in Conservative politics.  That is why it will never happen.  The Elites will lose control.

The Republican National Committee, seeking to minimize intraparty damage to GOP presidential contenders, announced nine primary debates for the 2016 election cycle.
California will have the second debate, planned for September at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley and airing on CNN.
A statement released from the RNC’s winter meeting in San Diego said officials decided to limit the number of debates by sanctioning no more than one debate per state. Party leaders have said that the large number of debates during the last presidential cycle – as many as 27 – left eventual nominee Mitt Romney bruised and battered as he faced off against President Barack Obama reports the Sacramento Bee.
“By constructing and instituting a sound debate process, it will allow candidates to bring their ideas and vision to Americans in a timely and efficient way,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement. “This schedule ensures we will have a robust discussion among our candidates while also allowing the candidates to focus their time engaging with Republican voters.”
State GOP Chairman Jim Brulte added in a statement of his own that the timing of the debate here “is a testament to the role California will play in the upcoming 2016 election.” In 2011, the Simi Valley stage served as the backdrop for Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s recent entry into the presidential race. Perry tussled with Romney and defended his remarks that Social Security amounted to a “Ponzi scheme” for future generations.
Two months later, in Rochester, Mich. Perry endured his painful “Oops” moment where he couldn’t remember the names of the government agencies he wanted to abolish.
