How is California's fiscal health?

What you partisian hacks fail to realize is our problems are not ideolgically based. Our problems are corruption.
This nation has flourished under Democrats and has Flourished under Republicans. The one thing it CANNOT flourish under is rampant corruption ie Crony Capitialism.

At no other time in our history has corrupt business been so tied to the hip with corrupt Goverment. This includes the vast military industrial complex and the Federal Reserve. Both have been more then harmful to the well being of our nation.

It is time to end the corruption.

Yes!

That's funny.. have you seen the chaos in the NE when they can't get fuel / gas ? The Red States might leave but we'll take our Oil with us.

You can then burn wood and walk to work.

BTW, keep the Detroit Decay & Chicago Crime

By all means tea partiers, go ahead and break free of our liberal, godless union. We would be better off without you anyway:

As a Texan, I approve this message

I believe UT Austin is 2nd in the creation of PHD's in the US. We're not all a bunch of Detroiters on welfare.

Well, any talk of secession disgusts me.

Maybe it's time for the south to get out of the 19th century, start emphasizing quality education, and maybe things will start improving down there.

Expected from someone not from the south, nor probably ever lived here. Like you, not all of us are ignorant, uneducated hicks, living in a trailer and watching rerun's of Honey Boo Boo..

All this stereotyping is part of the problem.
