LI #23 Trump Protest

Anti-Trump protesters surrounded rally sites, waved Mexican flags, and ventured to prevent Trump supporters from seeing The Donald speak.

The term “protesters” being used to describe these thuggish demonstrators is an inaccurate, weak description. They harassed and intimidated Trump’s supports who were attempting to hear the candidate speak at two separate...

Minimum wage hikes tend to hurt lower income-wage earners more than help.

Donald Trump inexplicably waited until YESTERDAY to name a State Political Director in California.

The California primary on June 7 could determine whether Trump reaches the magic 1237 majority delegate number prior to the July convention. By all reports, Cruz is far ahead in the ground game in California, which awards delegates...

Famous tax-payer victories include Proposition 13 (capping property taxes). Furthermore, Californians have organized statewide to defeat other issues (e.g.,
