"Before the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, California was
reliability Republican. After that law passed, California dived
quickly into the Leftist camp the primary driver being the rise of
first generation citizens being allowed to vote a group that
strongly skews Leftist, by 3 to 1 or more. When I was a kid,
California was a shining economic model of progress. Now its a
poster-child for income inequality and poverty. So Californias got
that going for it."
"If every future election has a foregone conclusion, that leaves the
President as a single party leader of the Left. And in Washington
D.C. the Left has been consistently more disciplined on voting, though
they do tend to form circular firing squads on policy. Given the thin
Senate majority now, another decade of demographic change might allow
truly uniform and consolidated power as all legislative bodies are
captured along with the Presidency. And at that point the United
States is a de facto single party state, with a minority party that is
just for show. A list of single party states that look like this
includes such human rights wonders and great vacation spots as Turkey,
South Africa, Venezuela and Zimbabwe. I mean, who wouldnt love to
live in those places?"
It's also a recipe for a 2nd Civil War.
Thank God America currently has two separate, independent political
1. Donald Trump
2. The Democrat/Republican Establishment party.

We need more politicians like Trump -- willing to think outside the
box. Nice Mark Twain quote, BTW. (-8
I've never studied the history of mass movements, except that I did
read the book, The True Believer, by Eric Hoffer, about 60 years ago,
as I recall.
However, I think that's what was happening before Trump won the
election. There was a vast mass movement going on, in Europe and
America, with both political parties participating and pushing it
along, without much opposition by anybody. The mass movement was about
globalism, and open borders, and anti-nationalism, and was also about
identity politics and mass immigration and multiculturalism and
learning to hate police officers and name calling and learning to love
Muslims (while at the same time killing them by the hundreds of
thousands, if not millions).
Then along came Donald Trump. If he hadn't have came along, I don't
know what would have happened, but I'm glad he did. I've never liked
mass movements where people throw the baby out with the bath water and
then embark on a brave-new world of behavior as though they have
suddenly joined some weird religious cult that no one has never heard
The American people needed to be de-programmed and I think that's
basically what Trump is all about, but I have no idea how successful
he will be. The 2020 election will be interesting . . . .
