California is digging a hole.

Why is liberal California the poverty capital of America? - LA Times

Guess which state has the highest poverty rate in the country? Not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia, but California, where nearly one out of five residents is poor. That’s according to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure, which factors in the cost of housing, food, utilities and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income.

Please re-read this passage and see if anything pops out to you?

See it?


Mississippi did not extend Medicaid. Mississippi and other 'red' states spend so little on their constituents' basic needs.

Apples to apples the poor in California are in a far better lot than the poor in red states like Mississippi. There are plenty of poor in Mississippi that are existing without state help.

The massive in flux of the third world, including millions of illegals. What regressives want for all America.
Yet immigration is the oldest of all the conservative traditions in the USA. I bet you think that the only people who have ever immigrated here were the already rich and well off.

Is California asking anything from you. You have the freedom to live where you wish...and the people of California have their right to extend benefits to whom they choose to.

Don't live in California.

Libertarians have this habit of thinking their untested economic and social beliefs should be the default religion for the whole country

yeah, ask the Native American's how they feel about that one? All the "illegals" that came here after this land was stolen doesn't seem to concern you. Nor, the fact that this country was founded by criminals, who were kicked out of their host countries. Oh and btw, next time your on Stephen Miller's blog, do say hey for us all, k?
