Re: CA government is so corrupt
Nah... not fraud but the type of folks who live there. In CA there's only two areas where a Republican has a chance (one area north of San Francisco and the other is Orange County). So this isn't about Repubs or Dems, because there is no opposition. Funny thing about all this... Dems are supposed to be against big business and the evil monopolies, not for giving them more power.
So for you and Big John, it's not fraud and seeing how there's no Republicans to speak of in office, no reason to mention which party rules the state. It's obvious. I'm in southern Oregon and watching the Californians move up here to get away from things like higher taxes. And what do they do? Start voting for those same laws, taxes, services, and the same type of legislators they moved to get away from. Go figure.
Seems this country is getting too damned polarized with the right vs. left. No statesman, no moderates who can see and temper the extremes at both ends. This is a pretty sad state of affairs, IMO, as there's no balance but only party lines. And both extremes are corrupt as hell as what's going on with their "net neutrality" makes clear. The big corps own them.
