Do Nothing Republicans
The sad part, is that the same folks who gladly took checks from a Democratic mayor are running the local and state GOP into the ground.
Doug Boyd, his wife Linda (Chairman of the LA County Republican party) and others have failed the members of their party. Like the state GOP, they have not at all been aggressive about finding, developing and electing strong Republican leaders in Los Angeles. The Democrats are highly effective of moving future leaders through their paces within unions and other organizations, then electing them to lesser positions such as water boards, school boards, etc. - then moving them up to City Council, State Legislature, etc. On the other hand, the neanderthals running the local GOP are more content to indulge in bris and chablis and get paid by low life Democrats like James K. Hahn.
Because of this, we get people like Jackie Goldberg and other wacko liberals elected to state office. Then, rather than solve the problems of the state, they spend their time debating bills banning internet hunting and deciding what names sports teams should have.
Those of us who support a conservative, even moderate agenda have to wake up and take charge of the local GOP to begin to work to elect decent, thoughtful, intelligent Republicans to local office and more of them. Indeed, there are many folks out there whom properly educated, would find basic conservative principles of individual freedom and limited government appealing. But we have to do this ourselves. The media won't do it and the Democrats and liberals will continue to lie.
And when I talk about electing some good Republicans, I'm not talking about the same old cavemen such as David Dreir, Tony "Jim Hahn" Strickland, etc., but some innovative conservative leaders such as David Hernandez, Mike Gin, Heather Peters and others.
But first, we have to revolt and then reform the party.
Here at the Sister City, as time goes on, we are going to shine the brightest spotlight we can on our local Republican leadership. We helped take down a Mayor, we can take these clowns down easy.
And who knows, maybe then Wacko Walter might come back to the fold.
