Katie Porter

Recommended Posts

FiveThirtyEight (yeah, yeah, I know...2016 election) gives her a 5 in 8 chance of winning.

It's weird, though. I've only been seeing pro-Mimi Walters ads, which paint Porter as a Nanci Pelosi clone. I got one pro-Katie Porter mailer, which emphasized Walters voting with Trump 99% of the time (or something like that).

Anyway, I already did mail-in voting, and I voted for Porter.

I really don’t appreciate the insinuation that Dana Rohrbacher is a trash person on the same level of Jerry Dipoto.  Honestly, just way beyond the pale Taylor.  Disappointed in you. 

You're right. No one should ever be compared to Jerry Dipoto. I repent of my callousness.

It has been awesome witnessing the transformation of right winger bumpygrimes into soy sipping lefty Taylor.

I don't really know how it happened. Well, I guess I do. About three years ago, I looked at the Republican party's platform and realized that, other than being pro-life, I resonated with none of it. I think the right nutswinging for Trump was the final straw.

Still, I'll never register as a Democrat. Part of it is the pro-life issue, part of it is that I don't really believe the government is the solution to our country's social issues. The Dems have gouged and over-regulated California, all while pretending to care about poor people.

I voted for Katie Porter because I'd like to see the Dems take back the house, in order to limit Trump's power. In a few years, if the pendulum has swung the other way, I could see myself voting for a lot of Republicans again. Heck, I voted for John Cox for governor, because Newsom is a POS. I voted for some Republicans in the other positions. I voted for the non-Feinstein Dem for Senator.

And I hate soy.

Honestly though, I’m kind of in the same boat.  

Perhaps when I was younger I couldn’t see the Republican party for what it really was, maybe it really has changed.  Either way I went from a Bush voter to Obama somewhere between 01-08 and more so since.

I was always basically a “libertarian” like everyone loves to say they are.  Socially liberal and fiscally conservative.  

But at some point I realized that Republicans were basically socially conservative and bullshit about being fiscally conservative and spent like drunk Persians at a Vegas tittie bar.  Than Obama happened and a can of super racism was opened on that side and I went “hmmm”.  Than Trump happened and I went “Oh I get it.  The Republican politicians only care about $$$$$$ and they are using dead babies, White people’s fear of the changing demographics and terrorism fears to scare the white vote, especially the old white vote into helping them get and keep as much money as they can get without actually caring about God, babies or terrorists.”

I actually feel a little dumb for not catching on sooner, but maybe it’s different than it was 15 years ago.  

The democrats have major annoying problems like identity politics and PC.  But at least people aren’t 100% full of shit.  I may disagree with some of their beliefs but at least I know they aren’t charlatans.

And for guys like Adam that support the Republicans for money reasons only and admit it without shame, more power to you.  At least it’s a valid reason.  (Except for the SALT and home mortgage deduction changes basically f*cked blue state conservatives).

I don't support republicans. I do support tax cuts though. It will be interesting to see how the return shakes out for 2018. But it is rather easy to give yourself your own tax cut.
