also from California.
The Olden Days
- In the not so olden days California elected a string of Republican Presidents and U.S. Senators. Today it is a hotbed of Leftist insanity and a one-party authoritarian state.
Constitutional Federalist Senator Rand Paul spoke to the California GOP convention yesterday about the need to broaden the Republican Party.
Naturally no one at the meeting cared. In the 53 California Congressional seats the state GOP has nominate only one woman.
How is that for a "big tent" outreach to voters?
As a Californian I say, "Who the Hell cares about the GOP." At least in its current form.
The California GOP claims we should vote Republican, but the party has no interest in you or your opinions. The corrupt closed door state party is an insiders club of lobbyists and hacks appointed by Sacramento and Washington politicians.
The average GOP voter has absolutely no voice in "their" party. The GOP is a top-down unelected oligarchy
Republicans should energize the voter base by adopting democracy and actually allow average Republicans to elect delegates to the state convention. The party could hold conventions in every county where party members could gather, debate the issues of the day and elect delegates to the state convention? But nooooo. That is not allowed.
But I am just a "crazy" Blogger. What do I know?
A while back Paul was criticized for meeting with students at the University of California, Berkeley, in April. Paul responded with an opinion piece telling Republicans that if they don’t talk to new people they’ll never find new voters.
|“Evolve, adapt or die. That is the fate of our current Republican Party. We must evolve as a party and find a way to attract millennials to the conservative movement or we will never succeed in realizing our ideals of individual freedom and freedom from government interference,” he wrote.|
Nowhere has the effort to attract a new generation of Republicans been more fraught than in left-leaning California, where the GOP’s registration has collapsed down to 28.5 percent — just a few percentage points above the 21 percent of registered voters who are unaffiliated with any party.
So the moneyed Elites remain in charge of the party, and the number of registered Republicans keeps sliding down.
