Californians, what do you have to lose by voting for Trump?! Its time for Democrats to defend the consequences of their democratic socialist policies that have ruined the state!
After visiting my hometown of Los Angeles, California a couple of weeks ago, for the first time in decades, I returned to Florida absolutely convinced that Donald Trump and the Republican Party could recapture the state if the president would take Rush Limbaughs advice and campaign there. Everything thats wrong with California is the fault of Democrats! They cant blame Republicans for the mess theyve created there! Its a one-party state! Can you think of anyone better than President Trump that can spotlight the left-wing policies that have wreaked havoc on the citizens of California? I cant.
Whether its homelessness, unaffordable housing, illegal immigration, abandoning efficient and affordable fossil fuel energy that has created wealth and career opportunities for middle-class Americans, an erosion of their middle class, or the lack of true diversity that exist in the state because Republicans and people of faith are bullied and censored, its time for someone to draw attention to Democrats failure in California. Why not Trump? Why not now?
Think about this. If Democrats have the audacity to try and take back Texas thats a successful red state, why dont we have the cajones to take back California, a failing blue state?
Despite spending billions of dollars to fix Californias homelessness crisis, its worse than ever! According to ABC News in a column, in Los Angeles County alone, the homelessness crisis rose 12 percent in the last year under Garcettis underwhelming leadership to a total of 58,936 people. Furthermore, the streets of San Francisco are a mess, literally! They had to hire a Poop Patrol to clean up human feces on their streets because Democratic politicians refuse to enforce public urination and loitering laws that are already on the books.
On top of that, unaffordable housing in California is preventing middleclass Americans from obtaining the American Dream of buying a home and securing a decent retirement for themselves. Even the jobs of some unionized labor, such as the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), are being threatened by big city mayors that have embraced Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezs Green New Deal. Moreover, low-skilled and entry level workers are forced to compete for jobs and wages with illegal aliens. The gap between the rich and poor is widening there. And now, Governor Gavin Newsom wants to force California residents to buy health care for illegal aliens when legal residents cant afford it for their own families because Obamacare destroyed the industry. When will California voters say enough is enough?
Its obvious that Democratic elitists in California think their voters are too dumb to think for themselves. Thats why they employed the jungle primary system, that allows the top two winners to go to the primary election, even if theyre both Democrats. Not only does this drown out competing political ideas from the GOP and other parties, preventing voters from having a real choice between candidates, but it also explains why California continues to creep further left to their detriment, and why theyve become so intolerant of anyone that doesnt subscribe to the liberal group think.
But it wasnt always that way in California. There was a time when Republicans had a lock on the state. According to a 2016 column in the L.A. Times, in virtually every presidential election from 1952 through 1988 Republicans won the state. What changed? According to the column it was the surge of Latino and Asian immigrants in the 1990s that were unhappy with the GOP stance on immigration.
Although it would be a Herculean task for the GOP to win back California, its not impossible with Trump. The jobs and lifestyles of legal immigrants there are threatened by left-wing policies, including amnesty for illegal immigrants too. Furthermore, all of the failed policies of the left are on full display for the entire nation to see, if only someone would put them under a microscope. Theres no Republican politician in California with a platform large enough to expose Democrats failed policies in California. Trump has the pulpit and the courage. We should utilize his microphone and his courage to make California great again.
Agree. Go for it, Mr. President. It has to start somewhere.
Rush never suggested that Trump campaign in the state. In fact, he said he didn’t think Trump could win the state. What he said was that he should hold a rally in the state to highlight CA’s ills to the entire nation.
They have to go back.
Interesting article...Trump should campaign in California and upstate New York and Connecticut...
I had no idea the dictatorial power Trump holds to drain California of voting illegals...
Get the illegals home and they will at least have a harder time voting.
Hmmm, They may be right about that... How many times do you stick your finger into the light socket before you finally wise up..?
Pretty much fantasy that Trump can change it back to a republican state.
What Trump can do is hold rallies there to gin up the base and fence sitters to help win back some House seats 2020...and make the democrats spend money where they think it's a lock...
Given the huge and well-oiled vote fraud machine in CA, how can you know how Californians actually vote?
Candidates all over the country can use California as an example for where leftist policies inevitably lead. Conservative Republicans at every level should be asking their opponents how they plan to avoid the mess that CA has become, when they implement the same policies.
Hollywood and fags is a redundancy. Ill let it go this once tho
Well, when you have every tin hat tyrannical federal judge putting in nation wide injunctions for every move Trump makes, makes it kind of tough...
It isn’t dictatorial power. The president holds power over the federal agencies which deal with illegals and the illegal drug trade. He can direct and change the activities of those agencies to more forcefully uphold existing laws.
They are home...ask any California democrat...
Two and a half years in, I thought that swift deportations of illegals on a much larger scale would be happening.
That’s what we really need - for Trump’s administration to do what the media was freaking out that they’d do when he was elected - go DOOR TO DOOR throughout this country, find the illegals and deport them on-the-spot, like any other country would do.
No court dates.
Prove you’re legal, or get driven to the border.
Then do this block by block for the entire state, then the entire country. The left will go absolutely batshit crazy, but since they’re already absolutely batshit crazy no one will notice. People will fight back. Good. Less to deport.
I think that’s one step on how we REALLY take back our country - the other is to levy tariffs on EVERY scumbag business who makes their crap in China or some other third world country to the point where it gives them no economic sense to do so. FAR too many of them have abandoned their own country because of their own endless greed, lack of concern about quality, and desire to utilize foreign workers who can get paid $1.00 an hour. Screw them. All of them. If we brought our jobs back here, we’d thrive again.
There is no silent California majority adequate to wrest control.
The majority likes the status quo and wants to keep it
I doubt that kalifornikator would flip, BUT, I think it is still a great idea for Trump to hold a coupla of rallies there.
He would draw YUGE crowds, energize the base so that congresscritters would have a better chance to win, and DRIVE THE MEDIA CRAZY.
Imagine a rally in LA with a video of the homeless tent cities showing the entire nation, what the msm doesn't want visible.
That's until a federal judge puts out a nationwide injunction putting a hold on said changes...
That's why all of South America lives behind walls, iron bars and concertina wire.. The law abiding live in their self made prisons and the criminals have the freedom of the streets...
Nothing to lose. Go for it, Mr President!
It’s not illegals and welfare recipients.
It’s public employees.
