Can California become a Ron Paul Republican state?Submitted by fonzdrew on Sat, 06/29/2013 - 16:18
Ever since the 1980's, after immigration reform was signed by Reagan, the GOP have written off California as a loss. Now, the GOP almost never spend any money in California, basically giving it up to Liberal Democrats. This is, in my humble opinion, is where the GOP are wrong, and maybe don't care that they are. Why do I say that? Because I believe that California is a libertarian state, and the GOP would rather see it go to the Democrats, whom they have more in common with, than to a libertarian candidate or a Ron Paul Republican.
California voters have constantly voted in a libertarian way, from no new taxes (with exception of the last election due to lies on the ballet), to legalizing marijauna. Sure, there are plenty of bills that passed that aren't exactly libertarian, but a majority of big government bills are voted down by the voters. I believe that we need to start working on getting a libertarian or a Ron Paul Republican candidate in California for Governor and at as many local offices as possible. Only then, will we find out how truly libertarian California is.
