And I’m going force you to take note of something.
I’m not attacking you personally in this thread. You can check back, the only time I did, was after an accusation you threw at me.
But you have in every post, and you’ve done it ad nasium. It’s a crutch RET, and if your argument is strong, then I have to ask, why is that even necessary?
In one year. You’re saying that occurred in. one. year. I don’t buy that RET, and you’re not giving me any reason for why I should.
You’re not laying any blame here on the CA GOP, nor are you acknowledging something else that’s wrong with California. That being…
What are concerns of California citizens? I think you’re either hiding that, or you’ve lost the beat here.
California is (or was) Center-left, has been for decades. You’ve had a Democrat dominated legislature nigh-continuously since 1959. This left your state open to becoming a platform for Progressive values, which is precisely what we saw happen.
Following the propositions in 1995, Gen X started siding against the GOP in large numbers, because they were the generation habituated with progressive values from your own universities.
Latent values in them, and in University-educated Baby Boomers, ensured that the native vote was lost.
Whatever minimal take you thought prop 187 was taking, to them, it was a dog whistle that Republicans were racist/fascist deplorables, as it tripped over precisely what they were taught to look for.
Citing the cause as “Dependents” when it was actually educated people who turned the tide, just sounds like a thin veil to hide the truth.
