California On A Death March - Luney Land

California is on a death march.   The state is run by Socialists controlled by public employee unions.   California's Governor Moonbeam Jerry Brown is a back to the future experience since Brown was a failed Governor of California 30 years ago.   It is a pretty sad day when Republicans have little chance of winning office in California and the best the Socialists can put up is a 70 year old retread.   So like always, California is borrowing and spending Billions of dollars it does not have because public employee unions continue feeding at the trough in the process of bankrupting California.  

In fact, if anyone wants to see what would happen to the United States if Socialists controlled both Houses of Congress and the Presidency, which was the case that produced ObamaCare; just look to California for the example.  Unemployment in California is around 11%, not the highest in the country; but darn near.   Housing prices have fallen by about 40% and the foreclosure rate is very high.   Taxes are among the highest in the country, which has caused many companies to leave California over the years.  

In fact, 30 years ago about 250 companies with 5,000 employees or more were headquartered in California.  Today, that number is 129 and of those most have shipped major operations overseas, or to other states.  Apple may be headquartered in California; but its killer products are made in other countries.  Yet the Socialists in California continue on their merry way.  Governor Moonbeam Jerry Brown is proposing even higher taxes on people earning more than $250,000 a year along with a major sales tax increase. 

$250,000 may be a lot of money in Alabama; but it is not such a big deal for two married professionals in California to earn this amount.  In fact, a teacher married to a fireman could very well be in this wage category.  But that is not all.   The public employee unions are planning other initiatives, as well, that could be on the ballot next November to raise all sorts of other taxes.   And, then there are all the crazy regulations in California that make manufacturing, in particular, impossible in the state.  These Socialist characters just don't get it.   Companies and people vote with their feet to escape California taxes and regulations.   It has been happening for years.  Even Hollywood movies are often not made in California any longer. 

It is no coincidence that Texas has grown in direct proportion to California's company and job losses.  Texas is a business friendly state with relatively low taxes, reasonable regulations, a good quality of life and a lower cost of living.   These are the ingredients necessary for economic growth and job creation. 

And, then there is all the crazy social policy in California.   Of course, abortion on demand is a right along with medical marijuana.  But, the most recent craziness is Senate Bill 182, the Judicial Applicant and Appointment Demographics Act.   This is a voluntary on-line survey sent to all judges in California.   In addition to asking questions about gender, race and ethnicity, this questionnaire asks if a judge identifies as a man, woman, gay or transgender.   Names are required, though the information is supposed to be confidential.   What a laugh. 

Nothing in California is confidential because the environment is so highly politicized.   Remember, California includes the lame stream, left wing media and Hollywood, where anything goes.   40% of judges refused to respond to the survey, which means that 60% actually answered these questions about sexual orientation.   This data will lead to appointment quotas; just wait and see based on sexual orientation.   Why else for big government to collect the information. 

What is happening in California demonstrates why we must work to sweep Socialists, out of office, at all levels of government.   We can see the end result of their handiwork in California.   Socialists are a clear and present danger to our nation as bad as any external enemy we have ever faced in American history.   They are out to transform our nation in their image.  Socialists believe that big government should make all our decisions.  They support big government as a replacement for the family.  Obama and his pals believe in redistribution of our income in the name of "social justice" from those of us who work, to their PEEP's, many of whom don't work. 

To all of this, we must stand up and say HELL NO as we "cling to our guns and religion".   We must sweep these Socialists out of office in 2012 and 2014 to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.   California may be lost, though there is always hope; but we can't allow what is happening in California to happen to our nation.  

We have to take back our country by making Socialist President Obama, a one term President and by sweeping other Socialists, at all levels of governemnt, out of office.   We can do it.   We must do it to prevent the bankruptcy of the United States.   So get ready.  Get out your check books.  Put on your hip boots and let's work together to drain the swamp that is Washington DC and in every state in the nation.
