While the reasons for California’s ever-spiraling downwards status from 1st World economic prominence and prosperity to near 3rd World malaise are many; I will assert that when you combine uber-liberal politicians, with rich elitist Hollywood Celebrities, dotcom CEO billionaires, disengaged millennials and illegal aliens; you in effect create the circumstances where your city or state becomes a 3rd World environment.
The process of California’s demise from the “Golden State” to a 3rd World status has been slow but steady; supported and enabled by the Leftist Liberal politicians, with rich elitist Hollywood Celebrities, dotcom CEO billionaires, disengaged millennials and illegal aliens. While much of the legislated changes for the worse have been designed and voted in by politicians in Sacramento; municipal politicians and a complicit uninformed, naive and entitled voting public must also share the blame. When 51% of the population are on some type of government subsidy and out-vote the 49% of the money earning and tax paying citizenry, any state is doomed to failure. California is now officially a “Sanctuary State” and their Liberal Democratic state legislature pushing for voting rights for illegal aliens, the state will never recover.
Californians are allowing this because they are following like lemmings, Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, Liberal Democratic legislators and urban mayors like Eric Garretti off the economic cliff.
Nothing is good about Los Angles. An ever-growing homeless subculture populates the downtown area. The intoxicated, drug influenced, mentally impaired and criminals are everywhere.
The homeless, numbering in the thousands, sleep in the shadows of immense, gleaming edifices owned by multi-billion dollar international conglomerates and dotcom corporations. Business executives and workers quickly pass by the unwashed masses, while holding their noses to screen out the stench of urine and feces. The obvious health and safety hazards to the public are too many to count.
Interconnecting Los Angeles city roadways and state highways designed to transport the commuting, tax paying public to their jobs are a debacle. The roadways are a mess of potholed, weed infested, trash laden, graffiti vandalized passages filled with vehicles lined up bumper-to-bumper going nowhere fast. California voters grumble and groan but, in the end they just seem to accept their fate as one of the prices to pay for living in California.
Commuting is all but impossible to downtown Los Angles. It takes over an hour to travel 10 miles.
The problem is the people working have no time to get out and protest the outrageous and constant increases in taxes on gas, municipal services, vehicle registrations, rapid transit or the bullet train going to nowhere. Only the unemployed, government subsidized masses have time to demonstrate in the streets to ensure that their subsidies continue. Since the liberal politicians in Sacramento know this dynamic, the taxation without representation continues.
Los Angeles is a mirror image of all of the other large urban cities in the California. San Francisco Bay Area, Orange County and San Diego are even in some cases worse.
California is rapidly becoming a two-tiered society of the very rich and the very poor, similar to the 2nd and 3rd World countries. The middle class, small business owners and the retired are either being pushed out of state and/or escaping in droves to such tax free, business friendly and less crime ridden states such as Nevada, Arizona, Texas and Florida. Lame duck Gov. Moonbeam and the state’s liberal Democratic legislature know this. They just don’t care because their power base is now assured.
There will never again be a Republican administration in California. The candidates lining up for the governor’s race in 2018 are Open Borders and Sanctuary State advocates Anthony Villaraigosa and Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom. Governor Brown and his Democratic legislature are pulling out all the stops creating legislation that will allow illegal aliens in the state to vote in state and local elections. Republicans, conservatives and moderates don’t stand a chance.
Here are just some of things Californian’s have done in recent years to turn their state into a 3rd World mess. Passed Proposition 47 which has since freed tens of thousands of felons from state prisons and county jails back into communities. Prop. 47 also eviscerated the parole enforcement agency and created a system where police on the streets can’t even enforce outstanding felony and misdemeanor warrants anymore. Police no longer arrest people for being under the influence of dangerous drugs. What would be the point; it’s just a misdemeanor. They have reduced the crime of auto theft to a citable misdemeanor. Steal a car; get caught and get a ticket. Commit non-violent crimes, get arrested and you are out the same day with a promise to appear in court that will not ever be enforced. No warrant enforcement. Amazing!
California’s new “Sanctuary State” status supports and enables its Open Borders mentality. Police in a number of cities such as San Francisco, Oakland and Los Angeles are ordered not to assist ICE with border enforcement. Remember the Kate Steinle murder case where her five-time convicted criminal and deported illegal alien was acquitted? Well, that’s the political mentality that created that circumstance. This is also an excellent example that liberal politicians in California are willing to sacrifice the innocent to demonstrate that they support violent illegal alien criminals.
California Universities that were once considered some of the best in the country have been taken over by Socialist and Antifa’s. Antifa is short for “anti-fascist”, is the name for loosely affiliated, left-leaning anti-racist, alt-left groups that are decidedly anti-racist, anti-sexist and anti-homophobia, but also by and large socially leftist and anti-capitalist. They organize Antifa educational campaigns, build Antifa coalitions, pressure venues to cancel their events, even vandalizing the property and buildings where events are scheduled, organize self-defense trainings and physically confront the far right or anyone that does not agree with their positions.
What happens in California’s larger cities filters down to its medium and small sized cities as well with homicide rates that have increased 150% in one year? Fifty percent of all homicides are gang and drug related, with the pre-dominate gang members being illegal aliens.
With California over a trillion dollars in debt and 30% of their budget going to subsidizing illegal aliens at the expense of hard-working, taxpayers who have little to no voice on how their state is run, the state and the majority of their citizens are doomed. That’s what a two-tiered society eventually creates.
One heck of a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY!
I have never heard this said as simply or as well.
Class Warfare at its best.
The folks who are getting the free stuff don’t like
The folks who are paying for the free stuff, because
The folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer
Afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff.
And the folks who are paying for the free stuff
want the free stuff to stop.
And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting!
Now, The people who are forcing the people who pay
for the free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING
The free stuff that the people who are PAYING for the
free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.
So, The people who are GETTING the free stuff have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.
We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff.
Now understand this.
All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded.
The voters figured out they could vote themselves money
from the treasury by electing people who promised to give
them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.
The United States officially became a Republic in 1776, 242 years ago.
The number of people now getting free stuff
outnumbers the people paying for the free stuff.
Failure to change that spells the end of the United States
as we know it.
