The sick bear 6

The great victory scored by the Republican Party in yesterday’s elections should mean the whole of the USA may now be saved from socialism.

But will the tide of salvation reach California?

  • Here’s what may happen: (1) California follows Leftist programs and crashes; (2) California goes to the federal government and asks for a bailout; (3) the feds borrow/print more money and bail out California.

    It’s all well and good to hope a Republican Congress would let the market correct the problem, but my hunch is that the “save California” lobby will win in the end. The most I hope for would be a serious set of conditions on federal aid. Otherwise, the cycle will just repeat.

    I wonder if a rise in conservatism is limited by demographics. For example, blacks tend to vote Democratic. And even among whites, the Tina Fey types can convince the yuppies and the trendy women that Tea Party women like Sarah Palin are “bitches” and “whores.”

      I understand that there are demographic voting patterns, but I know nothing about them.
      I do know that there’s a big majority of Democratic voters in California, doing the state no good at all.

      It’s a puzzle to me why so many blacks vote Democratic. It’s the Republican Party that has done the most for blacks from Lincoln onwards.

      I think women on the left hate Sarah Palin because they fear and envy her. I often agree with her, never with them.

        So you wouldn’t agree with a leftist woman if she cited Sarah Palin’s fundamentalism as a character fault? (Which leftist women do frequently)

        • Jillian Becker

          I think Sarah Palin is wrong about religion. But she’s generally right about political issues.

          I think leftist women are wrong about all political issues.

          How much belief depends on character, I don’t know, and I don’t think anyone knows.
