Painting California conservatives as all poor inbred whites is an erroneous stereotype. Plenty wealthy and intelligent cons in choice locations. I am native Californian, some of these folks are my family, educated, well off, some even John Birchers - it wasn't poor white trash that elected Reagan governor.

Some folks love America, they just hate Americans.

Tom I Lauren? Seriously? Don’t ever complain about an extreme source again. Seriously, you just lost all credibility on this.

Obviously you did not listen to the residents of California.

Seems pretty unlikely California would split.

Hey, California can do anything they want within the confines of their laws. They should not however interfere or even undermine federal law, specifically when it comes to immigration. Unless of course they want to secede from the union.


A split of California will never, ever happen. Just another Gerrymandering proposal put together by a handful of Republicans to try to gain an additional senate seat. It has zero chance of ever happening.

I agree with you that California should not interfere with federal immigration agents doing their job. California should not, however, be forced to assist and use their resources to enforcement of immigration law.



"Just another Gerrymandering proposal put together by a handful of Republicans"

Wrong dunba$$.
The people in California wanting to separate from the ultra-left sanctuary slums are Democrats.



You've obviously never been to California if you think the Democratic areas are the slums. But if you want to enjoy right wing California, your hero Representative Nunes would enjoy having you visit his district in Bakersfield.



The sanctuary slums in California, as exposed by local media, are run by Democrats.




The "sanctuary slums" as you call them are the economic powers of California; the places people travel around the world to see, with high prices due to their popularity and desirability as places to live. The conservative areas are armpits that nobody pulls off the freeway to visit unless you need to fill up your gas tank. Those conservative armpits are where you will find the Trump supporters, and they are most readily identified by having more toes than teeth, and often complaining about the government all while waiting in the welfare lines. These are the people who voted Nunes into office. Your type of people Mule.


Having lived in California for 95% of my life I feel I am more than qualified to respond to this statement. The point above takes on sort of an Electoral College type of viewpoint. Am I correct in thinking that your argument provides for San Francisco, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, The Napa Valley & San Diego being the major tourist hubs in the state?...With the rest of the municipalities being seen as not too much more than "Fly over" towns who must accept the will and attitudes of their bigger brothers along the coast? I wonder what percentage the populations of those areas in the State account for?


California is very a Democratic state. Sorry if the conservatives in California are outnumbered, but considering twice since 2000 we have had a Republican president win an election who recieved fewer total votes than the Democrat challenger, it's hard swallow that conservatives aren't getting plenty of representation. That is 2 of the 3 elections won by a Republican president. The electoral college already gives voters in "flyover states" more political clout than they deserve. Not sour grapes, as that is how the constitution was written, but you'll have to excuse me if I am not overly sympathetic if conservatives in California feel underrepresented while we have a president right now who recieved 3 million fewer votes than his rival.

How do you figure? Look at any map that outlines the popular vote for the Election, if it wasn't for Seattle, Portland, S.F., L.A. Santa Barbara & NYC, Hillary Clinton would have been slaughtered.

Since that is where most people live, that is where most votes are. But the point being made is that the electoral college is skewed from the actual population spread. Take a state like Wyoming. They have 3 electoral votes (2 senators, 1 rep). They gives the voter in Wyoming more weight than a voter in California. A more fair method would be if each state had as many electoral votes as they have congressmen.

So why should a person's vote in those places be worth less than a person's vote anywhere else? You could add up the population of several flyover states and it still wouldn't equal the population of NYC, so why do states with less than a million people get 3 electoral votes? The fact that low population states have the same number of senate seats as a state with a huge population skews the power of the electoral college. It appears that you are happy that a person's vote in a rural part of the country counts more than a person's vote in a large city. I don't see how that's fair.

Twice since 2000, and most recently the loser recieved 2.1% more votes than the winner. Like Trump said, the system is rigged.

Losers call the system rigged.
The People and President Trump call it the Constitution.

If you don't understand the electoral college system or just don't like it because you lost, change it.
It is a thing called Convention of States.
Hint: it ain't gonna change.

You took that out of context in typical far-left style.

In that tweet Donald Trump was mocking the Democrat's system that prevented Bernie or anyone else from getting the nomination.

When Candidate Trump made that tweet about the electoral college the Democrat activist and the corrupt liberal media were pushing the electors pledged to Donald Trump to switch their vote to Hillary Clinton.

Or did you miss the 2016 election manipulation by the left and their lemming in the corrupt liberal media?

You have repeatedly proven you are too incompetent to find any factual data.
