Pity the poor conservatives in the state of California who are Americans trapped without political representation.
Things were bad enough with the Democrats fully in control and running Sacramento as if it was the old Soviet Politburo but the state government could still stop the worst of their tyranny as even Gov. Moonbeam had to do on occasion using his veto pen.
But following last Tuesday’s elections, things took a drastic turn for the worse for Republicans and any sane Californians as the Democrats not only is Jerry Brown being put out to pasture and radical socialist Gavin Newsom moving into the governor’s mansion but one-party rule was further reinforced with the extremist Dems now having the power to do anything that they want with zero opposition.
The Democrats in California now have a veto-proof supermajority.

Via US News & World Report, “Democrats Gain Veto-Proof Majority in California Legislature”:
Democrats have won two Republican-held California state Senate seats in the Central Valley, giving the party veto-proof supermajorities in both chambers of the Legislature.
Vote totals updated since Election Day made winners Monday of Melissa Hurtado and Assemblywoman Anna Caballero.
Hurtado won the open 12th District seat while Caballero defeated Republican Sen. Andy Vidak in the neighboring 14th District. Both are in the Fresno area. Vidak, of Hanford, has held the seat since a special election in 2013.
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.
You could hardly blame California conservatives if they feel like Jews in 1930s Nazi Germany and perhaps now is the time to seriously consider getting out while they still can.
