CALIFORNIA DESTROYED BY 50 YEARS OF FAILED LIBERAL DEMOCRAT PARTY IDEOLOGY AND POLICIES
It was, in my parents time, a golden place. Where you could come and build something for yourself and your family, where a working man could afford a home in the city or suburb and his wife could stay home and not work but raise the family. You had beautiful cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles shining like jewels at night from the surrounding hillsides. lights reflecting off the waters of the San Francisco Bay and from Malibu to Palos Verdes in Los Angeles. In the mid twentieth century it embodied the American Dream! It had "a booming economy and a vibrant middle class."
Historian Victor Hansen in his book "The Decline and Fall of California" states that California is the author of its own decline. He rightfully blames a half century of bad policies and failed ideology.
Today, after 50 years of left wing Democrat socialist communists running the Golden State, we have a state that is a disaster and within a few years of total destruction should the policies of the left remain unchecked, which it appears they will. California is now officially, according to us, a totally lost state.
Number one in homelessness. The tent cities stretch for miles in Los Angeles, Anaheim, San Diego, and throughout San Francisco. Number two (behind New York) in massive over regulation that drives businesses out of the state according to a recent poll. Sanctuary city and open border policies that are straining every public institution imaginable. Divers licenses given to illegal immigrants. (What? Yes its true - the Democrats want illegal immigrants because they vote Democrat). A disrespect for the LEGAL citizen that has lived here for many generations and a strange and illogical focus on the rights of non-citizens, illegal immigrants and the homeless. State infrastructure is in total decay. The Oroville Dam debacle is proof and it hasn't been paid for yet. State didn't pay its bill yet for the repair. Hmmm. Even with the second highest taxes in the USA the state can't pay it's bills to maintain its infrastructure? But Jerry Brown wants to build a bullet train to nowhere? He gallops around the world talking about global warming when his own state is crumbling? San Diego waters are being flooded by toxic filth from Mexico and he's in Belgium talking about global warming? How out of touch do you have to get before the people throw you out?
FACT: 90% of California's tax income comes from 166,000 very wealthy families or individuals. They are, ne by one, leaving. When 50% or more of them have left or established residence in Florida, Texas or Nevada, where they pay 0% tax, then how will the state make up for the lost revenue? Will they cut back on pensions? Will they stop stupid bullet trains to nowhere prpograms? Will they cut the states expenses at all, anywhere? No. The Democrats that run the state will do what they always do - tax whomever is left here. Which means that the average person in CA is going to see a massive tax increase in the next 5-10 years we predict.
From Breitbarts Review of Hansens Book:
The impact of these (liberal Democrat) policies has been enormous. The agricultural heart of the state has dried up, the middle-class has fled to more favorable tax environments, and new, mostly illegal immigrants—who come in droves due to the open borders policies of the state’s elites—find fewer and fewer opportunities to rise out of their condition. However, the elites are mostly ensconced in affluent corridors and immune to the negative effects of their ideas.
Hanson writes that “as in most of California’s existential crises—budgeting, infrastructure, pensions, immigration, education, law enforcement—the problem lies in its thin coastal corridor, a surreal place where liberal grandees assume that they are exempt from the chaotic ramifications of their own utopian ideologies.” THINK ABOUT THAT STATEMENT FOR A MINUTE. IT TELLS YOU THAT THE ARROGANCE OF THE THOSE THAT LIVE IN SAN FRANCISCO AND LOS ANGELES CONTROL THE STATE, AND THAT THE RAMIFICATIONS OF THE IDIOTIC LAWS AND REGULATIONS THEY PASS WILL EVENTUALLY IMPACT EVEN THEM ALTHOUGH THEY THINK THEY ARE EXEMPT DUE TO THEIR BEING "SO SPECIAL".
“There is a great sickness in California, home of the greatest number of American billionaires and poor people, land of the highest taxes and about the worst schools and roads in the nation,” Hanson writes. “The illness is a new secular religion far more zealous and intolerant than the pre-Reformation zealotry of the Church. Modern elite liberalism is based on the simple creed that one’s affluence and education, one’s coolness and zip code, should shield him from the consequences of one’s bankrupt thoughts that he inflicts on others.” AGAIN HE POINTS TO THE ARROGANCE OF THE ELITE LEFT. SOMEHOW THESE ELITES TRAVEL FROM THEIR INSULATED FULL SECURITY HOMES AND HIGH RISE CONDO'S AND GET INTO THEIR TESLA'S AND DRIVE DIRECTLY INTO THEIR SANITIZED DOWNTOWN HIGH RISE OFFICES FAR ABOVE THE TRASH AND POVERTY AND SQUALOR THAT LIVES BENEATH THEM IN THE STREETS AND PARKS WHERE FAMILIES DARE NOT VISIT ANYMORE, AND ARE THEN WHISKED UPSTAIRS HIGH OVER THE CITY WHICH IS CRUMBLING BENEATH THEM.
We have written it many times: California is FUBAR. Almost everyone we know has a plan to get out within 5 years.
REMAIN VIGILANT AMERICA!!!!
