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."

GOP Registration Collapses in California
California Looks to Become Venezuela
It might help if the GOP actually stood for something
instead of being "Democrat Lite"
(Sacramento Bee) - Good luck finding a California city these days where most voters are Republicans.
Fifteen years ago, Republicans comprised more than half of the voters in 66 of California’s 482 cities. Today, they are a majority in just 14 cities, according to the latest data from the California Secretary of State.
The population of those 14 cities represent less than 1 percent of the state’s city dwellers.
By contrast, the number of cities where most voters are Democrats has remained fairly steady at around 140 during the last 15 years.
No political party captures more than 50 percent of voters in 328 California cities, largely due to voters that decline to state a party preference. Democrats outnumber Republicans in 201 of those 328 cities.
In the Sacramento region, more than 50 percent of voters in Loomis, Roseville, Lincoln, Rocklin and Folsom were Republicans 15 years ago. Today, only Loomis can make that claim.
For instance, 52 percent of Folsom voters were Republicans 15 years ago; today that figure has fallen to 41 percent. About 30 percent of Folsom voters are Democrats, similar to fifteen years ago, and the rest are unaffiliated or members of third parties.
California has become increasingly liberal over the last two decades, with a plurality consistently favoring Democratic presidential candidates. In 1997, Democrats outnumber Republicans in the state Assembly by a margin of 43 to 37. Today, that margin stands at 55 to 25.
These maps show California cities where more than 50 percent of voters were registered Republican in March 2002 and February 2017.
