Between 1952 and 1988 Republicans won the state in nearly every presidential election in California. The majority of the population were Republicans. In 1994, the state had over a million illegal immigrants. A Republican authored a Proposition that would prevent illegal immigrants from receiving services, including education in the state.
After Propersition 187,Save our State (SOS) was passed and later overturned by the courts. Several Hispanics successfully ran for office and changed the face of Politics of the State. Today, Republicans represent less than 24% of registered voters in California.
Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
