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."

(AP) - California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom reports that he has already banked nearly $5.5 million for a possible run for governor that's still more than three years away.

The Democrat and former San Francisco mayor filed campaign finance reports Friday showing he has $2.5 million in an exploratory account set up in February.

That's on top of the nearly $3 million in his re-election account for lieutenant governor.

Among his biggest donors are technology leaders such as Yahoo! Chief Executive Marissa Mayer, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff and Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt. He also received contributions from the California Nurses Association and the Service Employees International Union's health care branch.

Gov. Jerry Brown reported Friday that he has $19.6 million in his re-election account, though he is termed out next year.
