This story from the U.K.’s Guardian does a great job of capturing the pain inflicted on Californians by the state’s socialist policies. What is notable by its absence, however, is any explanation of how these problems came to pass. The writer never points out the glaringly obvious fact that California has some of the most liberal policies of any state in the nation, a place where farms dry up to avoid bruising a minnow.
Where California is now is where all of us will be soon enough, if the dems shove socialized medicine down our throats and Obama is allowed to continue with his fascist policies. We need to stand up and make our voices heard. If the gop has lost its will to fight, we need to throw it away and create a party that represents the ideals of America’s founding. It’s not yet too late.
