Better as well compared to even most countries of which there are less than 10 in the world with bigger economies...

How is it possible that California didn't come apart economically, morally and in every other way possible long ago? The disaster Republicans are always so concerned about when it comes to all things Democrat should have ended all forms of prosperity in California long ago, right?

Instead?
Are you insinuating that because Democrats haven't destroyed California, that somehow their policies are working there?

In some ways, it's almost a good 'back to states rights' topic. Again, the funding of it can cause ire, but that's the state gaming the system, meaning federal 'under'sight/malfeasance.
If they won't enforce local law....

I understand your point. I just went up a few notches.

If they won't enforce local, consistently, may be time for 'us' to stop abiding by, locally.

That is those who want change

Have the federal government print money to give to a horde of illegal invaders and sham companies?

They have ALMOST destroyed California. Not quite but soon.

I suggest we blow the bridges over the Colorado and contain the infection before it spreads.

Can you be just a little more specific?

Anyone who has lived any amount of time in California knows very well about regulations and such that are intended to protect open space, the environment, the coast, our water, our health, etc...

Lots of people go on about regulations, but can't seem to connect the dots to the benefits, like requiring reformulated gasoline in L.A. to clean up that brown stuff in the air.

"Broke under Swarzenneger" also needs some explanation. As in bankruptcy? Defaulting on its loans?

If broke then and now on pace to better the national average in terms of economic growth, again..., how does the anti-Democrat legion explain or reconcile their constant dire predictions with the reality that is California today?

Read through this entire thread this morning since it began, and no real answer to that question...
