What was missed all over the country and in San Francisco and Los Angeles is that while the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are able to maintain political power in places like California, people are beginning to understand it is their policies that are driving the state’s slide into economic and social oblivion. California now has a housing market that places home ownership out of the reach of the majority of people. California has the highest poverty rate in the nation. About half of the people in Marxist dominated San Francisco want to leave. The idea that a blue tsunami would happen on Tuesday did not happen, in fact a blue wave did not happen.
Neither the Marxists nor the Conservatives were able to land any knockout blows in the races for California House seats despite the prediction that the California Marxists would sweep Pelosi back into the Speakership once again. California, home to the nation’s largest congressional delegation with 39 Democrats and 14 Republicans, has a so-called “jungle primary.” All candidates initially competed on a single ballot Tuesday. The two who come out on top go on to the general election, regardless of political party. This makes it possible for two Marxists or two Republicans to face each other in November.
The Marxists had hoped the jungle primary might give them a leg up on their campaign to win back control of the U.S. House of Representatives by capturing at least a few of the 14 seats the GOP currently holds. Going into Tuesday it looked like there might be a few seats – notably the Anaheim-area seat of retiring Republican Ed Royce – where the Republicans might be shut out of the general election. That did not happen – not in the Royce seat, not in the San Diego-area seat of retiring GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, and not in Huntington Beach where Republican Dana Rohrabacher seeking a 16th term, easily made it into the next round.
This is quite a turnaround from what experts were expecting even just months ago. The Trump presidency, in the considered opinion of some political experts, should have been the final nail in the coffin of the California GOP. What these experts have missed all over the country is that while the Marxists have maintained political power in California, they’ve not been able to stop the state’s slide into economic and social oblivion.
The number of people who say America is “headed in the wrong direction” is also down by about a third from where it was at the end of Comrade Obama’s era. That’s not a ringing endorsement for things as they are, but it does suggest the next national election will not be a “change” election like the last one was. Voters seem to like their tax cut and approve of the fact the country’s economic engine has restarted even in California. People are going back to work, the unemployment rate among all Americans is the lowest in decades and the black and Latino unemployment rates have never been this low since statistics have been compiled.
The blue tsunami or blue wave also failed in San Diego and Oakland where the Soros financed effort to replace law and order District Attorney’s with Soros puppets were defeated. The California voters also recalled a state senator who had voted for the gas tax and a judge who sentenced a convicted rapist as if rape is nothing more than a misdemeanor.
These election results and the mutiny of several cities and counties against the sanctuary state policies give hope that California might be reversing course and once again understanding that Collectivism always ends in social and financial decay, a situation with which California is being more and more identified. The Marxist philosophy is still the overwhelming sentiment in the Capitol in Sacramento and the Socialist Republic of the Bay Area, but perhaps, just perhaps reality is taking hold outside of these Marxist strongholds.
We must continue the fight and start today to bring about the results that will clearly indicate a recovery from the Marxist indoctrination in November.
