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."

Cash-flush California GOP allows chairman to seek third term

GOP delegates only represent the corrupt wealthy special interests

The California GOP
The party that represents no one

  • The GOP delegates met in California for their convention. I mean really, who the Hell cares?
  • Simply, no one elected even one of these "delegates" who pretend to represents GOP voters. They are all appointed by Oligarch insiders based in Sacramento and Washington. The actual Republican voter is, as usual, totally ignored.
  • A Radical Thought  -  If the party cares about their voters (which they don't) they should hold 80 mini-conventions in each of the 80 state assembly districts. GOP grass roots voters could attend and elect delegates to the state party convention. But the paid off Oligarchs want nothing to do with the pitch fork carrying peasants.

BURLINGAME, Calif. (Reuters) - The Californian Republican Party voted on Sunday to extend its term limit to allow the former lawmaker who brought the party back from near-bankruptcy in an increasingly Democratic state to seek a third term as chairman.
Buoyed by a flush bank account and the prospect that members' votes will matter in a presidential primary for the first time in decades, GOP members at their annual convention near San Francisco voted for a change to longtime party bylaws to allow former state Senator Jim Brulte to run again next year to be the party's chairman.
"I think he's a great chairman and he's done a lot for the party," said Michael Escoto, 35, a delegate from Los Angeles.
Brulte's strong hand guiding normally fractious California Republicans was clear throughout the three-day convention, where newly energized members were courted by all three candidates vying for the national party's presidential nomination - Donald Trump, John Kasich and Ted Cruz - along with Carly Fiorina, who is joining Cruz' campaign as his potential running mate.

Since Brulte took the helm of the then-faltering party in 2013, the California GOP has gone from having less than $200,000 in the bank to its current cash on hand of $4.5 million, according to state campaign finance records.
Now, positions cut during layoffs a few years ago have been replaced, and the party's annual convention - previously a sleepy affair - was packed with delegates and guests.
The possibility that California's June primary will matter in the presidential race for the first time in decades if frontrunner Donald Trump does not secure enough delegates before then has energized members.
Still, Brulte will face a difficult road in a state where Democrats hold all statewide-elected offices and dominate both houses of the legislature.
The Californian Republic Party has become fractured, splitting among Tea Party conservatives, anti-immigration activists, libertarians and an increasingly alienated moderate old guard.
There were just under 4.8 million Republicans registered in the state as of Jan. 3, bringing the total down to 27.6 percent of the electorate from 30.4 percent in 2012.
