Mitt Romney's stump speech just warned America not become like CALIFORNIA!!
Fox News Channel ^ | 8/12/12 | Mitt Romney

Posted on 08/12/2012 11:23:33 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Fox just ran a live event of Romney/Ryan at a High Point, North Carolina furniture factory...

Twice in his speech, Romney warned that the nation cannot become like CALIFORNIA.

Wasn't it Peggy Noonan who just recently wrote a column urging Romney to make that comparison, because most American voters certainly know what THAT means---as opposed to the allure of Europe?

And what would Mitt have America become like? MASSACHUSETTS?

He has potential to be great or simply be another cast in the same ol' GOPe mold.

It's the hand we've been dealt, so let's see if it can be played well.

The down ticket races are extremely important and if they go well, we have a much better chance of surviving regardless of which party wins the WH, but an even better chance with Ry...I mean Romney.

How does Mitt hope to win the California vote with statements like that?

Hey as a Massachusetts native that ain’t right.

The state income tax in MA is flat. That is 5.85% rate.

NOt like Maryland which is progressive. where i am right now. Also
Maryland increased taxes this spring over $100,000.

Also, Mass. has property tax 2.5% -— since 1980-—that Cristie tried to
get for New Jersey.

Gov. Deval Patrick Romney’s successor did raise sales tax to 6.25% from
5% a few years ago.

But Massachusetts has a reform independent streak. Scott Brown, anyone?

But I do admit that Dems have been running the state with too much a
majority.

Is Massachusetts running the same deficit in pensions and budget problems that California is running? More importantly, did Massachusetts do it during Romney’s tenure?

One thing about FR: one can always count on back handed support for Obamugabe from some in a thread that shows Romney doing something right.

The demography of CA today--shaped by immigration (legal and illegal) and liberal policies--will resemble the US in 2050. One in four (27%) in CA is foreign born and Hispanics make up one in three residents (38%). Non-Hispanic whites make up 40% of the population. 43% (age 5 and above) speak a language other than English at home.

And year by year, CA is becoming more and more Democrat.

Yes, they are totally Democratic, i.e. a one-party state which is not a natural condition for human beings. Somewhere somebody will start a counter-movement of some kind within the Democratic party, is my guess, and it will not necessarily be a ‘conservative’ counter-movement.

What I mean is, one-party states almost always break up, or down, as you will, into rival groupings. It seems to be human nature. Political monopolies of thought and opinion are very hard to maintain.

Point taken, but California is even worse. California is a true basket case and tying Greece to California and waring that Obama is taking the entire USA down that path is a good strategy. I am glad to see him saying this stuff.
