Peaceful California

Of the joys of living in the Golden State, two of the biggest is that our primary is late spring and we don't have to suffer through the saturation media buys telling us every candidate of every party is a treasonous whore. Also, it has been a long time since California has been a battleground state in a contested election.

While we always seem to have some billionaire Republican trying to buy the governor's office or a Senate chair, and the cacophony of political ads is so loud and annoying that anarchy seems a quieter alternative. Presidential seasons tend to be relatively calm and blissfully peaceful.

I can't imagine the hell that New Hampshire, Florida, and Ohio experience every four years.
