THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.
"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

Socialist Medicine Moves Forward in California
The People's Republic
The Socialist Democrat super majority is determined to abolish private insurance businesses
(ABC 10) - A California bill to replace health insurance companies with universal government-funded care is advancing to a vote in the full Senate.
But Democrats who back the measure have not identified a way to pay for the estimated $400 billion annual cost.
The single-payer health care bill cleared a hurdle Thursday when it passed the Appropriations Committee in a 5-2 party-line vote.
SB 562 has energized liberals at a time when President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress are looking to overhaul former President Barack Obama's health care bill.
Supporters say a single-payer system would redirect insurance company profits and administrative costs to patient care.
Insurance companies and business groups say the bill would upend the health care system and its costs would cripple businesses.
A vote in the state Senate is expected next month.
