NORTH-CENTRAL FLORIDA, November 5, 2012 – My home state of California is a lost cause. The best hope for California is that the earthquake hits and makes us part of Russia. Living under Vladimir Putin is similar to life under Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer (and almost as tyrannical as Michael Bloomberg), but at least Putin can keep the streets clean after a snowstorm and handle hurricane relief (again, see Bloomie).
Yet for Election 2012, California actually does matter.
No, Governor Mitt Romney will not win the state. The 55 electoral votes are safely in the Obama column. Liberal Democrats are expected to win their races easily. Yet propositions on the ballot in California should be a warning to the other 49 states. Before going to the polls, see what California liberals are concerned about as the economy collapses.
Think of the movie “Independence Day,” where people are partying on the rooftops just before destruction kills them all. These are the California propositions.
One proposition on the ballot calls for higher taxes to fund education. Another one calls for higher taxes to fund green energy projects. Yet another one calls for higher taxes to fund high speed rail.
This is how the California dream turned into a nightmare. This is what President Obama has done the last four years, and will do if given a second term.
The Golden State is now fools gold. The real gold was in the job creators. They have fled to other states that care more about human workers, families, and jobs than trees, animals, and insects.
California is now a place for the uber-wealthy and the destitute. This is what happens when taxpayers are soaked for failed liberal ideals.
The education system has failed. Liberals want to spend more money.
Green energy has failed. Liberals want to spend more money.
High speed rail is a debacle waiting to happen. Money is being thrown down a sewer full of rats for a project that nobody wants and will fail.
Liberals call it “investing.” It is actually called “spending.”
California is broke, and yet liberals still want to punish taxpayers to fund pie in the sky fantasies that will never succeed. The public sector has failed, and the private sector has been harassed out of business.
This is California.
For those who want the California model across the nation, Barack Obama is the choice for President.
For the rest of Americans living on earth in the other 49 states, Mitt Romney is the choice.
California is infected with a liberal cancer. Go green is now gang-green. It should be cut off, not allowed to spread and kill the rest of the American economy and society.
It is too late to save California, but if the rest of the nation learns from California, America can be turned around.
