You folks that express the idea that we can just allow CA to fall obviously don't understand that CA's geographic size is the same as Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia...combined! It has more agricultural production than twice that number of states, not to get into every other industry that produces there. To just shrug and ignore CA is to hand the Dems a huge advantage that is pretty difficult for us to ever recover from.

I'm not trying to draw any false parallels.

But I've noticed bad things happen when one political party has complete control of a government for too long, whether it's the Communist Party that's wrecked Cuba for 50 years or the Democrat Party that's wrecked California for 40.

So far, the Democrat monopoly in Sacramento has done nothing to cause Californians who seek greater freedom, lower taxes and a better business climate to begin taking rafts to Oregon or Mexico. But give the Democrats time.

They've...
