I’m sure that the vast majority of the current residents of Californicate are very happy with the current state of the “Golden State” ... or else they would change things.
Assuming we can agree on a previous post on this thread, that would be a logical impossibility.
I agree that this is the complete, rational and logical explanation :
"What happened to CA is the same thing that happened to New York. You have a high concentration of the population in an urban area that is very very liberal as well as huge consumers of government handouts and that same area has the population numbers to control the elections."
Being, literally, too stupid to even imagine that that is an untenable, unstable, temporary aberration.
