“If Texas were to dig up Austin”
And if we Conservatives in California were to dig up SF (including Marin & Alameda Counties) and LA (including Hollywood) and transplant them next to Austin, we’d have a pretty decent state too! Actually, you could group everything down near Houston and it would work out better for both of us.
If anything, conservatives in California are dangerous now because once the Left has milked every tax dollar for the shiftless takers they will then tell the state GOP, “OK? What can YOU do?!?!”
And if the conservatives do what they are supposed to do the majority worthless bums will riot so bad the Obama administration will have no choice but to bailout the state in order to keep “order” and he will blame the GOP and his butt smooching MSM will agree.
Bankrupt states like Kalifonia are the Cloward/Piven test cases...we all are gonna fall in the end.
