Skip to comments.The Top Four Reasons California Is Unsustainable
Posted on 11/10/2018 2:08:03 PM PST by RedMonqey
California is a place unlike any other on the Globe. It boasts perhaps the greatest natural resources of any state along with shining high-tech industries. However, like many good economic stories, government policies threaten its future.
Indeed, its government has made California unsustainable.
Of course, it wasnt always this way. As the 1960s came to a close in California, it had a population of nearly twenty million. In the decade before, its economic strength afforded the construction of a vast State Water Project and higher education system that was the envy of the world. Matched with a majestic and trade friendly coastline, along with visionary business leaders, Californias future seemed secured.

The living was easy.... or so it seemed.
Now the Golden State is more renown for being flooded with illegals, wildfires and crap in the streets.
Sooo glad I never moved to the West Coast.. I'd be packing to leave right now where the dreams are real and the living is easy... Tennessee Dreaming!
Not enough city sidewalks to ‘house’ the unhousebroken homeless.
1. Governor Moonbeam
2. Don’t get rid of his policies
3. Re-elect Governor Moonbeam
4. See #2
So many voters bought into this illusion that the politicians learned to promise anything, and people would believe you. Politics in California became a fight between the people who promised paradise, and the people who said "wait a minute, let's think this through."
Of course, you can see who won that argument.
Now the bills are coming due, and the California power elites have hit on a new strategy: as the number of natives who have "gotten wise" increases, they can just import more naive dummy voters from south of the border. Problem solved, or at least problem kicked down the road for a future generation to solve.
Meanwhile, California Nights beckon!
Moonbeam is just a symptom of a much bigger problem.
If liberal took their ideals to a state without all the natural resources and instead had the economy of said, Arkansas, the collapse of the government would have been much, much sooner.
But because they have the ports, silicon valley and the natural beauty, the rot was overlooked.
But it has gone for too long and it’s collapse is eminent. It’s a matter of “when’ “not if”
Basically in the sort of trouble that the Soviet Union and East Bloc and even EU members like Greece, Spain, Italy, and Portugal. When Big Daddy consumes all sorts of resources needed to pay everyone, that sort of thing is going to collapse under it’s own weight. We conservatives get to see a good number of ugly and unpleasant things, but it is likely going to be far worse for those who depend on the free lunches and related things.
Communism collapses the society when it’s spent all the society’s wealth. The bigger the society the longer it takes. It really has all the characteristics of a parasitic infection.
Hell, I saw all this coming way back in the late 1970s, and that is why I got the hell out of California in 1979. I went back for a few days in 2016 when my Mom dies, but since then there have been weddings of nephews and nieces that I have passed on attending. My 50th high school reunion is coming up next year and I won’t be going back for that, either. I will never again spend a dime in or on California. It used to be paradise, but the f**king Democrats destroyed it. Perhaps it is fitting that the California town that was just destroyed by the fire — and a town they are now saying will never be rebuilt — was named Paradise.
Ironic... Paradise Lost.
I often wonder why the great empires of yesterday collapsed. Rome, Greece Persia etc.
Now I have a front seat to see it in living color.
California is run by communist hard left Democrats. That should explain it.
1. Los Angeles
2. San Fran - Oakland - San Jose
4. so cal in general
Parts of the far north and central valley are okay. I guess the Boss lives there so I can’t be too critical.
“Now the Golden State is more renown for being flooded with illegals...”
“Legals” from back east like Pelosi and Boxer are the ruination.
yes, the top reasons the once-great (and beautiful) state of Californication is going to Hell
1. commie style political hacks that raise your taxes skyhigh
2. commie style political hacks that restrict your liberties
3. commie style political hacks that are corrupt as HELL
4. commie style political hacks that pay the highest welfare benefits to millions of able-bodied lazy bums (not just to those persons who are disabled or otherwise genuinely may need some help)
5. commie style political hacks that destroy the living environment (such as by selling favors to developers allowing many huge new, mostly ugly apartment blocks bringing in thousands of new cars without adequate parking or any new highways)... while bullsheitting 24/7 about same
6. commie style political hacks that lie to the voters in every election, and also in between elections
7. as was famously said about the Shitty of San Fransicko politicians many years ago, “they’re so damned corrupt that they’d eat the paint off city hall’s walls if they thought they’d get paid a nickle for doing it)”
oh yeah, did I mention Californcation is infested with many commie-style political hacks (sell-out-the-people whores)?
I hope I didn’t forget to mention them...
oh yeah, i DID forget to mention...
one more thing at least,
Californication’s commie-style political whores
have rigged the ballot
so that (in most races) the public only gets a choice between two commie-style political hacks (with ZERO opposing candidates, not even GOP-e sell-out country club Republicans)
just like elections in the old Soviet Union
“Legals from back east like Pelosi and Boxer are the ruination.”
“Welcome to California, now go home.” The Texas people sound like us back in the 70s and 80s.
Beware, they are like locus. Flew in from the east and turned this place into a SH. Now their brood wants to move on.
I may have just lost my house in Magalia due to the Camp fire. Might be the right time to get the heck out of Cal.
so therefore, the Californication commie-style political whores CANNOT be voted out of office
they’re in there forever, barring only the national GOP party coming in with some real leadership and real money and real media (all the major Californcation mass media is 24/7 commie propaganda)
the state IS salvageable imho.. but it will take a major investment that maybe the GOP doesn’t think worth the fight?
