The Califonria Repubican Party, which is already all but non-existent politcaly is now facing an onslaught of Democrats running against them in the November Election.

https://www.sfchronicle.com/politics/ar ... 497966.php.

As it stands right now, there are at least 43-Democrats who are challenging Repubicans in 7-Congressional Races in what are largely seen as strong Republican Strongholds.

Already in California we have seen Darrell Issa (R-San Diego) announce his retirement along with Ed Royce, Republican from Orange County retire rather than humilating defeat in November.

Dana Rohrabacher is facing now less than Eight (08) Democratic Challengers and Jeff Denham is currently facing Nine (09) Democratic Challengers.

Women in record numbers across the country have dropped papers to run for elective office.

In California, where the number Hispanic Voters continuues to grow, Republicans who used count on the Convservative Hispanic Vote have seen their support switch to Democrats.

There are no Republicans in Statewide Elective Office (Governor, Lieutenant Goveror, Secretary of State, Insurance Commissioner, etc.).

Less than 29% of California Voters are registered as Republican.

The recent remarks by 45, referring to Haiti and Countries in Africa as "Shithole Countries" is having a very telling effect on the American Body Politic.

The overt racism of 45 and his base is effecting the Republican Party is a very direct manner as more voters refuse to vote for members of that party.

As numbers go, it does not look good for Republicans, but we all know that polls are only as good as the sampling used.

But the reality of 45 and his racism are destroying a Party that used have some sort moral basis, but now openly embraces the hate of Fasicst in the White House.

Congratulation RePugs, you have got the party you wanted for so long.

Be careful of what you wish for, sometimes it does happen and you have live with shit that you created.

Had the DNC done that in my district instead of spending millions trying to embarrass the GOP by winning Newt's old district my district would have a moderate Democrat instead of the Shithole Ralph Norman. But, to his credit he is better than Mulvaney.

Republicans are doing everything they can to destroy both the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act.

You know, to MAGA.

There are many Democrats running in GOP districts and states running as moderates, most are going to win. It will be interesting to see how the Democratic Party Extreme Left Wing Leadership responds and if or how they strike a balance between moderates holding office and those same moderates being able to balance the extreme positions of DNC leadership and those sane moderate democrats.

Everyone in the Republican Party are going to run as Trumpers and racists. MAGA!!!!

I'm betting, without even looking, that your congressman is a MAGA guy.

Democrats need to focus on winning as many seats as possible. Likely Republicans deep
down might welcome a check to Trump's agenda if they are honest to themselves. No
litmus test for the newly elected Democrat in Alabama will almost certainly have to tack
as far right as possible if he has any hope on winning re-election.

With an majority in either house, I would prefer Democrats focus on presenting an
alternate agenda to Donald Trump. Force the Republicans to either veto or filibuster
Democratic initiatives that the public wants. Make the 2020 Presidential elections
about different visions for the future and make it clear as possible, the Democratic
agenda is about looking forward, where the country is headed as opposed to looking
backward to where the country was.

Democrats can work with moderates whereas republicans believe moderates are too liberal to work with. See glen, our party has a large tent because we represent a broad spectrum of the American people, not just the white, conservatives.

What "Extreme Leadership" would that be glen, you are of course doing what you do best, throwing shit and see what sticks.

You are using your favorite "Broadbrush" that you will always complain about others using.

If you want respect glen, you must first demonstrate that you are as willing to show respect and in that post you have once again shown you have none.

Instead of using useless and worn-out RW taking points you might try using facts instead supposition and conjecture.

Compared to real socialists, yes, he is.

That's the thing - you don't understand what socialism is, or what the far left really is. You just make up your own definition.

Modern day socialists yes, communist no.

The only Socialist tenant you are opposed to is gov't owning the means of production. Even that is in name only as I am pretty sure you have np problem with a top tax rate of well over 50%.

So you have no problem with being call a modern-day nazi, right?

Well, glen, as for the tax rate - I think we sure as hell need to raise the damned rate and pay down the debt. I know, you conservatives don't want to do that - you want to bankrupt and destroy the nation.

Let's remember that President Eisenhower was happy with a 90% top tax rate and he sure as hell wasn't a socialist!

Not if I supported NAZI principles the way you and the rest of the left support so many socialist ones. Can you name one Nazi principle that I support? Of course not, but if I had the time I can name ten socialist principles that you support.

No, wait, I've RE-DEFINED a modern-day nazi! They don't believe EVERYTHING from back then, but I decided what a new Nazi is.

You're cool with that, right?

BECAUSE THAT'S THE SAME FUCKING THING THAT YOU DID TO ME!!!!

I'm not a socialist, and have never been one. I'm a moderate trade-unionist democrat.

You sir are not even close to being a moderate. It is laughable that you consider yourself to be one. If you were a moderate then there would be some conservative positions which you would at least partly agree with. Not only is there not a conservative idea you even partially agree with, if you could name a moderate position it would be some thing so obscure that it would be meaningless. The same way you claim to like or respect certain members of the GOP. All of which are long dead.

You support many positions that have been socialist positions from time and memorial. The main thing you don't support is the Gov't owning the means of production. However I am pretty sure you like that moderate Sen Sanders would have no problem with the Gov't having a top tax rate of 90% and an effective rate of over 50%.

I can name you something. GoU is pro 2nd amendment for one.

Glen you have no idea what a moderate is. You are not one that's for sure. It's obvious when you label people extreme lefties.

You are off topic glen. This thread is about the state of the Republican Party in California.

You are reported for attempting to hijack this thread.

Please name a position where you oppose the LW position and support a moderate one. One where you can definitively state the LW position is wrong and to extreme.

For 2, GoU is pro capitalism, and believes in a hybrid system.

Glen you lie or don't pay attention.

Off topic. This thread is about challenges by Democrats to current Republican Office holders in our state.

Stop trying to hijack this thread.
