    Coming in? Most of them have been here for at least a generation. And just because daddy was a fill in the blank doesn't mean junior will be. Community outreach in these communities works. Now it's not as simplistic as putting up a Latino. There needs to be a focus ground game. Andy Vidak one a heavily Latino district against a Democrat who was a Latina. Vdeck, grew up with the Mexican day laborers, he knew the culture, he went to fairs and carnivals speaking Spanish and communicating, that he was in their best interest. He was narrowly elected, over an incumbent Latina Democrat who was heavily favored to win that election.

    Now, proving that as a wealthy white person that you have the interests of an impoverished community that's mainly Latino at heart is a tough mountain to climb, it can be done but you need to play the cards right. Having a Latino candidate get your foot in the door, then he can go to all the community events talking to them in Spanish and convince them to vote for him.

    Agreed on Fresno being the superfluous butthole of the state following Bakersfield.

    I prefer northern California, but San Diego does have a lock on consistently pleasant weather.

    NYC here. It fits for me for my social tolerance, open-mindness, love of diversity, and so on. But my libertarian streak is fundamentally opposed to the egregrious gun legislation, the totally and utterly corrupt police department, the blatant disregard for the 4th amendment, the obsession with arresting pot smokers (I believe more than half of the NYC prison population is made up of non-violent drug offenders), and the extremely high (and wasted, that's the key here) taxes.

    My ideal locale would probably be someplace like northern New Hampshire because they manage to balance social tolerance/diversity, gun rights, personal freedom, fiscal responsibility, and adequate (without going overboard) care for the poor.

    I am spoiled by year-round mild temperatures and precipitation. I don't know that I'd be able to adjust to actual cold and rain.

Yes, the unions write our laws and control our budgets, that's yet another reason why the state is so screwed up.
    Absolutely correct. The unions have bought the state legislature. Just look at the campaign contributions, and the sponsors of legislation. Even the attempt to ban plastic grocery bags had union finger prints on it.

    The grocery unions blocked the passage of the plastic bag ban until they got part of the revenue from selling cloth bags. Not the stores, the unions. It's all kinds of messed up.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Your lean and what kind of district/state that you live in

    I tend to live where political views are reasonably similar, most particularly on views of community -- which is tied both to some fiscal and social views. Issues outside of that purview aren't as important. I find that they're better places to live by my estimation. I've lived in a few places where they're opposite, and that's been a universally terrible experience.

    Been sticking to that theory since I was around 22. It's done me well.

    I'm curious what % of posters here are from areas that have the same political viewpoint they do compared to different political viewpoints.
    I'm an independent that leans right. PA is considered a "blues state" but I gotta say most people I know are like me and even the ones I know that claim left seem to have many opinions that are stereo-typically right ideas. It's weird.
