Actually, we MUST let "California" die.
Not California the land. "California" the modern liberal morass.
The "Eighth largest economy" has less to do with the geography than it does the foundations of economic freedom which sprouted there partly because of the geography. Intel does not need mountains.
We obviously cant afford to let them go down the road they are on. Something drastic has to be done....what is that?
Both true. We cannot afford "their" stupidity and recklessness. But "we" cannot cure it. Something must indeed be done, BY THEM.
But the bottom line is, We cannot allow them to fail!!!!
Unfortunately, this is completely incorrect.
"They" MUST FAIL FIRST ON THEIR OWN.
No different than a headstrong, errant child. Only one possible way to truly learn a life lesson: live it.
Anything "we" force them to do or accept will merely encourage them that they are superior and would have been successful in their utopian dream if we hadn't come in and ruined it with "austerity" or some such boogey-term.
Let them die so that they may be reborn.
