On November 6, 2018 voters in seven California House of Representatives Congressional Districts booted long-serving incumbents in favor of supposed moderate Democrats in so doing wiping out half of the state's Republican House Delegation - the greatest proportional partisan losses since the U.S. Civil War. Unsurprisingly, senior members of the California Republican Party are now in Circular Firing Squad Mode over what or whom to blame President Donald John Trump being Target No.1, unsurprisingly as well he isn't to blame so much as themselves individually, i.e. failing to recognize that California literally doesn't have The State Of Mind as it had well over decade ago when they - the incumbents - were first elected.

Despite contemporaneous Media reporting California never was a "conservative" state ala Texas or even Florida despite the latter overrun by New England Yankees fleeing oppressive taxation. Its entire history save the 12,000 or so years prior to the 16th Century when Paleo-Indians populated the Americas was one of ceaseless immigration particularly after 1850 and especially following passage of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 which more than any single piece of 20th Century U.S. Federal legislation upended decades of exclusionary immigration policy particularly against East Asians and Latin Americans the latter in particular transforming California into what it never had been till now: a near majority Spanish-speaking culturally Latino U.S. state, conditions ideal for internationalist (read-Socialist) minded Democrats who unlike Republicans run aggressive, well-funded campaigns to elect people who do or don't have their constituents interests at heart.

California State Republican Party Leaders never have been able to "connect" with their constituents like Democrats can. Trump personally couldn't "save" any of the seven Republican House Congressional Seats lost last month, blaming him is pointless so is engaging in Circular Firing Squads. California Republican Party Leaders can't expect Populist Conservatives like me to vote for any of their office holding candidates from now on so long as they campaign & govern like Democrats, they'd never cared for voters like me so in consequence The California Republican party has no reason to exist given there are millions of folks like me who won't.

"Let It Be" California Republican Party, disband and quietly pass into history, meantime I'll try to Endure The Unendurable in the "People's Republic"!

You paint a very bad picture for the feature of America. God bless us all if the left continues it's ways. America as we know it is lost!

Too soon still for me to declare America is "lost" culturally speaking, economically its in good shape compared to 2008-2012 when quarter of my life savings evaporated during The Great Recession. Every generation of Americans complains about the nation being "lost", loudest I'd heard were during the 1960s, difference then from today there wasn't The Internet, iPhones, Social Media ala Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat et. al. weaponizing speech never mind monetizing it ala Google.

For me what's "lost" is Trust In Governance at all levels down to Community Services Districts, mine in Cameron Park, CA being in near constant management turmoil the last decade, Trust In The Press to provide "fair and balanced" reporting, Trust In Public Education which The Political Left got total control of here in California during the 1980s, Trust In Corporations to make rational business decisions rather than those reacting to "cultural pressures" e.g. Dick's Sporting Goods suspending sales of so-called Assault Guns following several high-profile gun massacres to score political points costing them 4% of their 2017-18 sales. I never had "trust" in The Entertainment Industry particularly Hollywood, flat refuse to pay for their rank cultural garbage though won't be ignorant of it either insofar as its corrosive effects on people's trust in each other.

I ain't gonna live long so shouldn't be so uptight about Things To Come, just wanna be prepared for them.

The problem with immigration is two fold:

1) automation is making low-paying, low-skilled jobs redundant
2) all immigration isn't the same, for example Europeans that immigrate to the US, only 4% make use of government assistance programs e.g., welfare, food vouchers, unemployment insurance etc. this compares to 60% of Central Americans that use some form of government assistance. Europeans have a different (strong) work-ethic, there's a reason why Europeans dominated the globe for much of 500 yrs - now of course they've given it away - thanks to the left - but see riots in France, this should be interesting, and wondering why it took so long. Rioting began because of a carbon tax but the riots are expanding. We're seeing a similar revolt to the carbon tax in Canada - the US doesn't have one and China and India are exempt from it (Paris Climate Accord) because they're emerging economies even though China is the 2nd largest economy in the world and the largest polluter by far - the insanity of the left.

You can see why unchecked migration will not only overwhelm the system in the US (and here too) but eventually collapse it - the system simply can't afford it. The media likes to claim illegal immigrants/migrants do in fact pay taxes, this is true, but they only pay sales tax, they don't pay income tax (becasue they're illegal) which form the largest part of revenues that government takes in, not a small sales tax for a coke or beer. In fact its been shown that illegal immigration costs the US tax-payer 3 dollars for every 1 dollar they take-in. Rick Santorum advocated for a freeze in immigration. One way or another that'll happen, perhaps even in our life-time. I love listening to the left attack the US and how bad it is (in Calif they do have a case and thanks to them) but at the same time supporting the very people who would naturally disagree with them ie., migrants, since if the US was so bad why would they risk life and limb to enter the US illegally. It would be likening Jews trying to get into Nazi Germany illegally - of course that never happened.

California so far is unique in the U.S. Of A. having Carbon Cap 'N Trading, technically not a tax it functions as one ala The State Of Mindlessness "managing" the credits, i.e. assessing & distributing them. Carbon literally is everywhere, gazillion times more of it was in the atmosphere prior to Mankind arriving on the scene.

The US doesn't have a Carbon tax thanks to Trump and you'd think Americans would have rewarded him with keeping the house? This province will elect a Conservative government in March and they'll eliminate our provincial Carbon tax and got to war, together with Ontario, Saskatchewan and New Brunswick with the Federal government (Liberal) trying to impose a Federal carbon tax across Canada as part of the Paris Climate Accord. A carbon tax is very expensive and actually hurts blue collar folks the most since they do most of the driving e.g., trades such as carpenters, framers, painters, plumbers, electricians etc need to drive long distances everyday and get hit the hardest - guys like myself jog into our offices or ride our bikes to work - my 2011 Grand Cherokee has 34,000 km (21,000 miles) purchased new - some trades will do that kind of mileage in 6-12 months. And in return a Carbon tax does virtually nothing for the environment since the biggest polluters, India and China, are exempt.

Carbon taxing wasn't on the minds of the brain-dead people voting for Dems, they - the Dems - brilliantly executed a no holes barred win at all costs full throttle all out effort to regain the House employing "Ballot Harvesting" big time most particularly here in The Left Coast Peoples Republic. Trump himself repeatedly declared his priority was keeping the Senate which indeed did happen along with adding two more seats though loosing Nevada & Arizona the latter largely because Martha McSally alienated Trump voters running as a John McCain Clone. Who individually deserves blame is deepest of the deep D.C. Swamp Critters Paul Ryan who'd did everything to sabotage The Donald including deliberately loosing the House to spite Trump, do trust in fate comeuppance comes his way soon!

I agree Paul Ryan sought to derail Trump at every step and even as late as last month, and what even looked like aiding Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2016 - can you imagine if she had won, you'd be seeing what's happening in France happening in the US. Next week Canada will be signing the UN Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration - its basically an open borders compact. Our liberal government has not debated this in parliament and has not consulted the people of Canada - it will end badly. The US (thanks to Pres.Trump), Italy, Australia, Austria, Switzerland and many Eastern European countries will not participate in this insanity - see link below.
