  • New and Improved GOP

    California Assembly's Republican leader, Chad Mayes is breaking away from the GOP model. He gives me hope that the GOP can improve their reputation with the poor and women.



    A month after taking over as the California Assembly's Republican leader, Chad Mayes brought his caucus to a shelter for homeless mothers. The lawmakers listened as women shared stories of drug abuse and recovery. They poked their heads into rooms crowded with bunk beds. They greeted children bouncing balls on the playground.

    The son of an evangelical pastor who still plays guitar at his father's church, Mayes became the minority leader in January, just a year into his career in the Legislature. He takes over as the Republican Party is fracturing at the national level over the presidential nomination and dwindling in California, where less than 28 percent of voters are now registered Republican.

    Mayes, 38, believes he can make his party relevant in this ultrablue state by moving away from social issues like gay marriage and abortion, and focusing instead on quality of life issues like housing affordability and the need for middle-class jobs. Fueled by his Christian faith and a pragmatic style, Mayes is trying to make poverty alleviation a key focus for Republicans.

    But poverty and welfare programs are the heart and soul of the Democratic party, so his efforts will most likely go nowhere.

    The Democrats prefer it this way.

      Welfare is a Democrat province. He'll never get any traction trying to play the enemy's game.

      We need to just wait. Caliban will bankrupt itself under Dem leadership, and that's when the GOP can make their move.

      Why do the liberals see debate in the GOP as 'fracturing', but ignore the fact that one of the DNP front-runners is suing his own party?

        Chad Mayes : an other Rino,an other Trojan Horse : He proposed AB 851,AB 1202, AB 1286 and all three of them received unanimous bi-partisan support .

        Translation : the Democrats supported unanimously the proposals from Mayes.Given what we know of theseCalifornian Democrats, the conclusion is that Mayes is a disguised Democrat .

        Poverty alleviation : Is anyone thinking that these "poor " will vote for the Republicans ?

        Mayes was praised by Jerry Brown and supports Kasich for president, Kasich who received money from Soros .

        We know enough .

          Mr Mayes is the kind of Republican we need in the 21st century. We need to accept the fact that the 1950s are gone and never coming back. Drop the social conservatism, drop the bashing of minorities, Muslims, etc. As Mayes says we should focus on low taxes, increasing workforce participation, etc. The endless babble about gay marriage and deporting Mexicans is alienating younger people who just want to be able to buy a home or have a well paying job without having to move across the country.

            Don't leave out abortion. Republicans really do need to remodel their platform on social issues.

              The politicians, or the citizens? Remembering that politicians are weak reeds which bend in the gentlest political breeze, I'm not sure that we can blame them for the general attitudes abut abortions.

              It's one of the bitterly contested viewpoints like the death sentence, or closing our borders.

                First of all, today's young people do not share common values with the older generations. They are entirely focused on themselves to the exclusion of all else, also like all rebellious brats they like to protest loudly about things beyond their limited comprehension.

                Secondly, those goals of good jobs and homes depend entirely on things like getting rid of illegals and closing the borders, and their demand for "well paying jobs" will only drive the economy further downwards as it exports jobs to Third World nations.

                Before the children get to complain about anything, they have to prove that they actually understand it.

                  It will only work, if he turns anti establishment, and away from the Corporation parties.

                    No they don`t, than why do you think that so many voters turn away from the established candidates ?

                    Is it not a fact, that politicians rather bend to perks and lobby`s ?

                      The two major parties have fielded every President for at least a century, probably closer to two, and all but a tiny number of Congressional and State legislature seats in the same time period.

                      As usual, the truth is not in you.

                        It makes "sense" if you start from the view that Americans are obviously idiots who are told what to believe by the all-powerful corporations who control everything.

                          So you are admitting that voters for Trump and Sanders are the smarter ones

                            The poor are poor because of the Democrats, who made them that way and want them kept that way because the Demmies live for grandiose welfare programs that give them power over everyone, not because of the Republicans.

                            The poor are, in fact, one of THE major demographics supporting the Democratic party.

                            Time to stop playing "blame the Republicans".

                            And let us never forget the appalling state of the economy after 8 years under a Dumbocrat.

                              Or whatever prevailing winds threaten to blow them out out office. They sail endlessly on the winds of self-interest and self-aggrandizement.

                              If you think they don;t bend to specific winds, explain the enormous political leverage of illegals, gays and lesbians, and specific minorities, who can dictate what politicians do despite what the majority of constituents clearly want.
