Winning the Battle and Losing the War

More than 30 Republicans have announced they planned to retire by 2019. The latest, is California’s Darrell Issa.   Issa was first elected to Congress in in 2001. For many years his  district representing Western San Diego Country was considered safe district for the Republican Party. The demographics have changed ,there are more Hispanics and Asians in his district then ever before.    In 2016’s general election Issa beat his Democratic challenger Doug Applegate by 1600 votes.

The challenge for many Republicans in 2018.  Incumbents will need to alien themselves with Presidents Trumps to survive the primaries and then broaden their appeal to win the General Election.

The Republican Party Needs a few Superheros

31 Republicans not seeking re-election in 2018. That number will likely grow, as Republicans in competitive districts have to make decisions about whether to run in an election year where their president has a low approval rating.

Choosing Party Over Personal Political Aspirations

President Trumps words, tweets is having a profound negative effect on the nation and his party.   His adminstration has alienated nations and racial groups throughout the world.  America is no longer viewed as a welcoming place.   The White Houses isn’t welcoming to many Americans.

The GOP is in desperate need of Superheros.  George W Bush and Arizona’s John McCain and Bob Corker, Jeff Flake cant do it alone.   The party needs SUPERHEROS Men and Women who will say Donald Trump’s views do not reflect the Republican Party.   Proud Republicans who will say his positions on Muslims, Mexicans, Gays, and the Poor is not who they are as a party!   The GOP dangeriously is teetering near edge.

Memories are long and the pain is deep.  The recovery is likely long,the healing process may take decades.

The Trump Administration’s basement doesn’t appear to have a bottom. Paul Ryan, The Speaker of the House of Representatives response to Donald Trumps latest faux pas was to say it was “Very unfortunate and unhelpful”.   The future of the party isn’t promising.

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
