After decades of mismanagement by both liberal Democrats and RINOs, California, like Europe, is just plain broke.
How did it happen? How is it possible that a state built by the 49ers, not the football team although they were once great too, is now known more for the amount of 99ers it produces each month rather than the latest innovation from silicon valley? The answer is simple. The politicians raised very type of tax known to man so they could pay for all types of social experiments and the citizens let them do it because they were creating a better society.
Well ladies and gentlemen here is what a better, kinder society looks like and believe me it isn't pretty but rather downright depressing.
California Is Broke: 19 Reasons It May Be Time For Everyone To Leave The State For Good
Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse
Back in the 1960s and 1970s, there was a seemingly endless parade of pop songs about how great life was in California, and millions of young Americans dreamed of moving to the land of sandy beaches and golden sunshine.
But now all of that has changed. Today, millions of Californians are dreaming about leaving the state for good. The truth is that California is broke. The economy of the state is in shambles.
The official unemployment rate has been sitting above 12 percent for an extended period of time, and poverty is everywhere. For many Californians today, there are very few reasons to stay in the state but a whole lot of reasons to leave: falling housing prices, rising crime, budget cuts, rampant illegal immigration, horrific traffic, some of the most brutal tax rates in the nation, increasing gang violence and the ever present threat of wildfires, mudslides and natural disasters.
The truth is that it is easy to understand why there are now more Americans moving out of California each year than there are Americans moving into the state. California has become a complete and total disaster zone in more ways than one, and an increasing number of Californians are deciding that enough is enough and they are getting out for good.
Sadly, the state of California is facing such a wide array of social, economic, and political problems that it is hard to even document them all. It is really one huge gigantic mess at this point.
Just consider the following facts about what life is like in the state of California today....
