Realigning California Would Realign America

AG: The conventional wisdom on the Right in most of the rest of America is that California is a lost cause. Rather than fight inside California, where you are up against the most powerful and monolithic alliance of progressive special interests in the world, dedicate resources to flipping purple states, and keeping red states red. But to invert a popular quote attributed to Nietzsche, even if you do not gaze into the abyss, the abyss will still gaze back into you.

California’s role in influencing the future of the country is unparalleled. In addition to its economic and demographic weight, California remains the epicenter of America’s media and entertainment industry, as well as its high-tech industry. Even if several American states defy the momentum of California’s political class, laws governing California frequently end up becoming federal policy. The abyss is coming for us all, and its epicenter is in California.

It’s expensive to engage in public education in a state with a population of nearly 40 million, including 22 million registered voters. California’s political culture is almost completely dominated by social radicals and environmentalist extremists. But if the challenges to changing the political culture in California are daunting, the potential rewards are even greater.

There is an immediate financial incentive for the Right to take the fight into the belly of the beast, which is that whatever money California’s well-heeled public sector unions and progressive billionaires have to spend on defense in their own state is money that will not be used to swing close races in other states. The question then only becomes how to engage in asymmetric warfare to ensure that California’s progressives spend far more money on defense than their attackers spend on offense. In this manner, even if the political battle is lost, the money is well spent. more

  1. No shit. Look at the EPA. I’ve been a mechanic without the title since… I don’t know, the early 90s.

    The reason your automobile, or one of the reasons your modern automobile is a piece of shit is because of California.

    EVAP canisters, fart gobblers, catastrophic perverters, air injection systems….

  2. “The conventional wisdom on the Right in most of the rest of America is that California is a lost cause.”

    Ah, we don’t need your help. California is self destructing right on que. What if I were to tell you California has been a red state for some time. A bunch of us believe that to be true. We don’t have elections here, we have appointments. But the appointees are so stupid they’ve insured their own demise. And here’s the latest that we are hoping will destroy the state. Appropriations. Yes, to funny. California became a state in 1850. Was never ever a slave state. No slaves were ever owned in California. But they found some skinny black crack whore bitch living on the street to make this shit right. Her first question, is a million more than a thousand? Yea well she’s up to 5 mil for anyone that has a good tan. We’re praying they pass this.

  3. Erik, you missed DEF which has totally messed up all the new diesel truck engines for the past 10 years or so. Another lame brain, genius idea that came out of California in order to save us from the evils of pollution. Liberal brain farts are our biggest problem, not cow farts and every other animal farting.

  4. So the strategy posited by the author is that it is prudent to throw tons of money at California so that the libs will have to throw equal amounts of money to counter………………and nothing changes, Cali stays red and we are stalemated.

    I got a better idea, how about we let the rest of the nation observe Cali in all its glory, observe what is happening to the once greatest state in the country, observe its demise brought by Soro’s DA’s, open borders, backward lib-think, onerous taxation, open warfare on our civil liberties, dumb gun laws, crappy schools, and a utopia turned dystopia, then say to yourselves,”Lets not be those guys”.

    California is providing a ready-made blueprint on what NOT to do, hopefully, the other states will observe and listen.

  5. That was a nice little article, and it would make a lot of sense, except for one thing; the progressives have effectively rigged the ballot counting system. Otherwise flipping California is just an exercise in futility. But I do like the notion of tying up progressive campaign funds in California and thus saving the rest of the country.

  6. Americans need to march into California and liberate it from the totalitarian maggots in Sacramento.
    Scorched Earth.

    “… cut him if he stands
    And shoot him if he’d run
    And kill him with my Bible
    And my razor and my gun …”

    G_Damn the nazi man …

    mortem tyrannis
    izlamo delenda est …

  7. I’d say we haven’t had an honest state wide election in California in thirty years. The cockroach nest in Sac has perfected the art of manufacturing illegal alien votes. Sometimes it seems like only an act of God will deliver us from these tyrants. Someday it will happen.
