What could go wrong?

How much did the lack of a super majority actually hold back the goals of California Democrats to begin with?
I wonder how this will effect the alleged exodus in population? Will it accelerate the process?

U.S. News



The victories give Democrats a two-thirds advantage in the 40-member Senate. The party also has that advantage in the 80-seat Assembly. The party also holds every statewide office, led by Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom. Two-thirds majorities allow Democrats to raise taxes, suspend legislative rules and override vetoes without Republican votes.

Maybe if enough people leave the state housing prices will go down to affordable levels.

Though I doubt it.

So all the bad decisions such as higher taxes are firmly on the Liberals heads and they have no excuse to whine about Republicans ?
Sweet.

Let's see how long it takes for them to start eating their own.

the voting population in cali actually asked for MORE democrats after what's been happening there?

Holy cow.

That is probably considered a great victory for "democracy" on the part of the Democrats. They have succeeded in creating a one party state and from that there is probably no return.

Better yet, as we all have seen over the last 50 years, as goes California, so surely goes the rest of the US. Your future is tyranny of a majority, basically a one party bannana republic.

Quality of life in Cali sucks.... the numbers don't lie. People vehemently defending it have Stockholm Syndrome.

After living in a blue state and a red state I can honestly say the Red State affords a quality of life that Californians only dream about.



During that 12-month period, California saw a net loss of just over 138,000 people, while Texas had a net increase of more than 79,000 people. Arizona gained more than 63,000 residents, and Nevada gained more than 38,000.


Californians Fed Up

Here's hoping they fall off into the ocean soon, then. If I have to buy one more "cali-spec" part instead of the cheaper version to keep a car on the road I'm going to start screaming.

Maybe northern Cali will finally make an effort to split the state- then we can just give so.cal to mexico!

guess they will get exactly what they want
when the tech companies begin an exodus,perhaps the states tax situation will change?
www.bloomberg.com...



I wondered about that, though. Yes, housing is much more affordable, taxes are somewhat lower 1 and the roads are marginally less clogged in Texas than in California. Also, the Texas economy has undeniably been booming, creating 3 million new jobs since 2000, compared with 2.7 million in much more populous California.

My guess is that over the course of the next 50 years, as the US devolves into a one party (Democrat) country, you won't even be allowed to have a car of your own. You will be crammed onto mass transit, ever wary of being stabbed to death by some nutter. The Democrat model is the UK and you can see your future in London.

What the dems have accomplished in cali they are trying to spread across the nation. Their immigration strategies are slowly working so far.

Their immigration strategies will lead to civil unrest and chaos.

It's clear California hates people.

That's right, California - the inanimate state itself - incapable of consciousness.... hates people. From the earthquakes, to the drought, to the wildfires and the Fukushima radiation... it is clear that California has HAD IT UP TO HERE!!! with you people!!!



Oh, and the CA politicians love power and hate people also!

To all the liberals who piously championed the Dems taking the House as "restoring the checks and balances" in government, what do you have to say about this?

Welp when the Democrats were 1 vote off a super majority they still blamed everything that went wrong on the republicans, so I expect they will still either blame the remaining republicans or just blame Trump.

What's the point of having a super majority if you never have to use it? Even Ahnold regressed into liberal ideology when heading the 'republican' party of California.

This is great! We can see what pure progressive liberalism looks like in action.

See also Cuba. We're going need to build walls to keep Californians from escaping and infecting the rest of the country. The CA/NV border at least will be easy. Just rip up the roads for a mile or so, and the desert will keep them isolated.

The state's governor is a Democrat. No "vetos" required.
