Vote California Off the Island
Normally, I direct my posts to my fellow Californians. I have been negligent in considering the sensitivities and thoughts of the rest of the US, and I apologize.
Red States, this one is for you:
But he added, “Politics is what has really ruined the state.”
When pollsters in 2012 asked American voters about whether they liked each state, California came in dead last.
Let’s face it, Red States. California and the rest of the US are just never going to be able to settle their differences. The way you see it, we Californians have “ruined” our state with our politics. We insist on legalizing Cannabis, and asylum seekers. We prefer to spend our tax dollars on education and healthcare, versus war and private prisons.
Your politicians say things like:
“People with HIV should be quarantined, and the U.S. would be safer if they “died more readily,” -
Betty Price, Rep.
They say things like, if rape is inevitable, then the victim should just enjoy it, and that she can’t get pregnant from “legitimate rape”.
If your state voted heavily for those politicians that said those things, then your state and California have insurmountable differences. Our cultures are so disparate that we will never be able to come to terms, and the US, by dint of being bigger than California, will forever be in the position of essentially being an oppressor of California.
Those articles back my argument that California goes unheard at the polls. they also back my argument that you wouldn’t miss our votes, if you were to vote to allow us to secede from the Union.
Of course you might miss the tax dollars that we contribute to the US, because without them, somewhat less would go into the maintenance of your infrastructure. You might miss the dairy, beef and produce that we contribute to your table, and the rest of the world, because we actually contribute most of those. You might miss the tourism dollars since we get the most tourism of any state in the US, and you might miss our import/export dollars, since we have ELEVEN ports of entry……
But you’ll make do.
I had to learn to improvise at a very young age. I had a lot of learning challenges, and I still have to think on my feet, and always have a plan B. If I can do it, surely your entire state and her government can do it.
You deserve better than to be (as you see it) held back by California and her constant influx of immigrants. You deserve to be free of our “freeloading” since you can see that we have the most poverty in the US. Of course not everyone stops to consider that CA also has more citizens, per square mile than most other states and we get less help from the Federal government to take care of those impoverished people living on our street corners, so your tax dollars aren’t really helping us there.
