The anti-Trump resistance is real. And if you're a taxpayer in California, it's really costing you.

The Golden State has decided to take its opposition to President Donald Trump 's crackdown on illegal immigration beyond defending sanctuary city policies. The Democrat-dominated state legislature has just approved nearly $50 million for a program that will provide legal services and representation for illegal immigrants.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is how you get 8 years of President Trump instead of just 4.

No, California isn't likely to go from blue to red in the next election over this. But as the rest of the country learns about how far Democrats and liberals are willing to go in using other people's money to support illegal immigration, there's likely to be a significant push back.

You wouldn't know this just by listening to Democratic politicians and the mainstream media, but illegal immigration is unpopular with most American voters. A recent Gallup Poll showed that 59 percent of Americans, (79 percent of Republicans and 48 percent of Democrats), worry "a great deal" or "a fair amount" about illegal immigration. And this level of worry has remained steady over the last 17 years that Gallup has polled on the issue

We live in one of the 36 states where your presidential vote doesn't matter. It just goes to whatever color your state is. Candidates only visit those states to raise money and then back on their jet they go.

It would be even worse if they eliminate the Electoral College. Historically, the "swing states" have changed over time. Interestingly, everyone forgets that it wasn't Florida that decided Bush/Gore. It was West Virginia! The Electoral College is what makes the US a Representational Republic instead of a straight Democracy.

Any safety offset that still allows the voters of 36 states to not be counted is a failed safety.
