I haven't seen similar examples of very-large cities or entire states that have been governed by conservative principles. Anyone here know of any?

Is Orange County conservative enough for you? Home of B1 Bob Dornan and the Nixon Library? Crystal Cathedral? Trinity Broadcasting, John Wayne? Karl Rove regularly scouts the OC for political climbers.

"" It is known for its affluence and political conservatism – a 2005 academic study listed three Orange County cities as being among America's 25 "most conservative," making it one of two counties in the country containing more than one such city (Maricopa County, Arizona also has three cities on the list).""

..and, yeah, we held the record for the greatest municipal bankruptcy in these United States of America until Jefferson County Alabama surpassed us year before last.

So, we just borrowed a whole bunch more money to get past the crunch... but we're headed for another huge crunch thanks to our uber-con supervisors who couldn't raise the sheriffs retirement plan fast enough.
