I am 44 years old and a 4th generation Californian whose Aunt was Governor Ronald Reagan's secretary while he was our fair Governor. I was actually voting for him as our 40th President while you were still in grammar school learning the Pledge of Allegiance. As for California being a socialist state . . . I really doubt that a socialst state would recall Gray Davis and on top of that, elect a Republican! As for your absurd comments regarding me being pissed that I have one less hero to worship . . . you are obviously a very demented soul.
