GOP showing in Calif. worries party strategists

Nov 10, 2012 Full story: The Republic 32

The nation's most populous state - home to 1 in 8 Americans - has entered a period of Democratic political control so far-reaching that the dwindling number of Republicans in the Legislature are in danger of becoming mere spectators at the statehouse.

Here is some common sesnse There was election fraud in 2012.

Come on. CA did not vote to block labeling of genetically modified foods (Prop 37). Monsanto is growing pesticides in the plants that provide the fruits and vegetables we eat. These pesticides kill the bugs by disolving their stomachas/digestive tracks.

When we eat these genetically modified (aka non-organic) fruits and vegebales or cook with oils made from these GMOs and we get these pesticides in our systems. Over time these pesticides disolve our digestive systems like a bug. We get sick and die.
All of Eurpe and most of Asia require GMO labeling -in fact the majority of the world does. Only in America are we allowed to be soft killed by companies like Monsanto.

America is being soft killed by global Nazis running it because we are the last hold outs to their "New World Order."

I think Obama won, but not by the numbers we are being lead to believe. There was voting fraud -look a the local elections where socialist democrats won even over heavily favored Republicans. It's clear this country is in the process of a communist take down with corporate fascists in charge of it all. I could just imagine those union thugs at polling places throwing out votes -not to mention those voting machines ran by a Spanish corporation.
You watch and see what happens in the next 4 years to America.

The guy who hosts the financial show Phil's gang got it right as he predicted Obama would win for the last 2 years based on one simple fact.
The more Obama destroys the economy and gets people on the government take the more these impoverished people will need those government checks to survive.

So no matter how bad Obama is morally for the country he's going to win because when your hungry you vote to eat plain and simple. People ask how Romney lost -he wasn't going to pass out the goodies to the people who need their next meal. When you need to feed your kids you vote for a hot meal not a hot candidate or on who is better for the country.

These mainstream talk show hosts don't get it -they have blinders on.

Alex Jones and crew should listen to Phil's gang for once and get his perspectives. Many of the financial guests Alex brings on are great but they are ex Wallstreet types -old Wallstreet guys turned academics and social commentators. They are great but they don't understand the present little guy at ground level sometimes.

Phil gets it plus he has wisdom in his old age and is still out there making money in any type of stock market environment. He is somewhere between mainstream and alternative media in his views; commons sense and down to earth but not naive.

On the other hand, Phil should listen to Alex Jones because someday the people now running the US will confisicate a great deal of his wealth -and there will be nothing he can do about it. The problem with Phil is he says -hey who cares what government does as long as you take care of yourself/your family and make money in any environment.. His show doesn't deal with what happens when the powers that be decide to confiscate your wealth all of a sudden like in Argentina.

I still want to know why Ron Paul chickened out of the 2012 election. Alex had a chance to ask him on his last show on Friday but did not. I don't get it. Alex is so hard working and such a fighter -I hope he runs for President one day and picks up where Ron Paul quit. And yes it's easy for me to criticize Ron Paul from the sidelines I know but Ron needed to go the extra mile and run third party in 2012. He couild have changed the direction of the country whether he won or lost.

I have a feeling the Bush CIA mafia had a hand in Romneys defeat. They wanted Obama to win. Think about. In 4 years we will want a Republican most probably after Obama destroys the US.

Who will rush in to save the day and get the Republicans their "wider tent aka Latinos" -Jeb Bush (Hispanic wife) and possibly Marco Rubio as VP. More neo-con globalists.

GOP has no future in American and especially California when its 280 congressmen and Senators allow the 'Santa Claus' Obamaís bribe campaign of more than 26 million additional illegals and minorities that live on Obamaís monthly check and food stamps and when destruction of the character of Mitt Romney with intentional lies is acceptable tactics. Is using bribe to buy voted of 9 million Americans with Federal paid 'nonsense disability' with free checks from Obama and offering free food stamps to more than 17 million illegals of which many were still in Mexico by Obama calling in TV ads to everyone to cross the border to America for money in return for voting for Obama is an American election victory or maybe the one way loss of American independence to foreign agenda. Obama offered nothing but free checks to his liberal parasites that stayed at home rather than seek a job that cost the hard working Republican Americans trillions of dollars and using their registration for free money to be voted automatically by 'absentee vote' to Obama without going to the polls. Is this the American new style of victory or is it the new socialistic Chavez in the White House who is stealing elections while more than 280 GOP Senators and Congressmen say nothing about Obama treated by the American people as a winner of what? America lost its independence to a foreign agenda Obama who studied the Jihadist Mozlem Brother culture in Indonesia in his youth and who used all out 'Jihad war' to destroy the character of Mitt Romney with pathetic lies accusing him to be a killer, corrupt, stealing money from the poor as a thief and what else while the American people call him the winner of what?

LOL!!!

You listed 22 "positive" outcomes, many of which are dubious positives for the GOP and/or teabaggers. That's less than 1 "achievement" per every 2 states!

But be encouraged! We know the teabaggers live somewhere, and their elected officials reflect their biases...

CA. is at the height of its power right now and its decline is imminent.The population of CA. was flat for the first time at least since 1950.People are now fleeing the state due to high taxes and an assault on human rights thats been going on for decades from socialist tyranical politicians and laws.
Due to no population growth from 2000-2010 CA. got no increase in Representatives in the House of Representatives in D.C.I expect a decline in population-and therefore Representatives-will begin to show with the 2020 census while more conservatives areas of the U.S.-like the South and Mountain areas-continue to increase.

lol! This is like that conservative argument that everything went down hill starting 2006 when the dems took over the House.

And look how long the cons have been in charge of the House. Seems they're content on leaving things on the low end of the scale!

No smoking in any park, except pot of course. Meatless Mondays, open border, excellent welfare programs and only a token conservative or two. That's the new progressive. The election was a mandate to Obama to continue his path. Let the old rich white guys pay for it.
