Exactly. Sad state of affairs, this paradigm of ours...

Unfortunately Nevada has become a suburb of California. The voting there reflects that. Rural conservatives are now being outvoted by the continuing immigration of people into urban Las Vegas and urban Reno.

Re: Our wonderful political system

Nevada, Arizona and Texas are very attractive retirement destinations for displaced California (Independents) or conservatives. Four more years and we will picking one.

That is very true. The funny thing is, they leave CA in part to get away from the high taxes and high costs caused by the policies there, and then come vote for the same policies here.

Re: Our wonderful political system

Denver Colorao passed every tax increase from sales tax to providing a Nanny for adults.
I live 4 houses outside of Denver. No new taxes. The California immigrants moved inside the city of Denver.
We also got our first openly Polygmist Governor.
The media claimes he is openly gay. OK fine. His political advertisements show his wife and children. He he has more wives, just because they are male still makes him a Polygmist. .... Right!
