Are Californians really safe from trump if he gets back in?

I don’t think our “bubble” will protect us for long.

I'm in CA and Trump isn't the biggest threat. This state has plenty issues as is

Nobody is safe. But it takes thugs and armies of followers to enforce dictators' desires. They do exist here in California but nowhere near to the degree of other places - particularly in our legislature.

Other states allow these election deniers, false electors and other shenanigans in their state governments and to spew garbage. I don't see that in CA - but I do know the GOP is above NOTHING to get their way.

OP would rather have the hung MS13 gang members flooding the state under Biden.

R3 probably lives in one of the red states that have more crime than CA, thanks to their loose gun laws

r3 I am exhausted with the MAGA trolling. I mean in the old days arguing with conservatives used to have some wit, some substance. Now trying to engage MAGA cultists is like talking to the homeless addict on the corner babbling incoherently at the sun.

Much of the Trump support is funded by Silicon Valley "New Man" Libertarians. If he is elected (still doubtful in my opinion) what he actually does won't be the devastating Christian Nationalist culture oppression that many fear (even abortion rights in many states will hold against the insanity), rather just totally corrupt policy and tax changes that favor the oligarchs, including the tech billionaires. CA will be mostly unscathed, other than horrid things like environmental protective regulations erased - T will try to close down the EPA for example.

Trump would be a destructive force to our culture, natural environment, values, and world status... but we can withstand him. He can't be dictator for life. Our guardrails, bent and roughed up, will hold.

And California with its energy, innovation, natural beauty and culture of freedoms will be a place for dreaming and surfing and reading poetry and dancing and making movies.... long, long after Trump decomposes in some MAGA Mausoleum in Florida.

Most of these Trumptard trolls couldn’t afford to rent a studio apartment in Bakersfield. Simple Republicunt/Russian disinformation. This thread is just the latest incarnation. lol& smh.

R5, I like you.

Always pleasant to read an intelligent perspective like the one at R5 to counteract the fools like R3.
