Mertins: "Ask Califorians what they add to the economy..... Nothing but debt and deficits"
California is a disaster!
Twenty years of ever increasing liberal policies, taxes, and out of control spending to "save-the-world" has driven this state right into the ground!
California use to have the 5th largest economy in the world, and scored on top in nearly everything category including education, aerospace, agriculture, entertainment, and tourism.
We had the best schools, best parks and beaches, and dominated in aerospace, agriculture, entertainment, computers and automobiles!
Now, these industries are packing up and moving out of state, because of the attacks and penalties put on business. Our schools are falling apart, and out entertainment and tourism is way down!
We have been pushing toward liberal utopia, and I believe we're almost there! There's not much left, and the constant demand for entitlements is way out of control!
This past week, two cities Stockton (300,000) and Mammoth Lakes (8,000) declare bankruptcy. Stockton was the largest city ever to declare bankruptcy in US History!
Two more will be declaring bankruptcy before the month is over, Montebello (65,000) and Stanton (40,000). Six other large cities in California are expected to announce their bankruptcies later this summer or early fall.
Our state budget is down another $15,000,000,000 and schools are expected to take the brunt of these cuts. There's talk that the school year may be cut by as many as 15 days, about three weeks!
But we're told we can solve these problem by paying more taxes! We have six new tax measures on the ballot for November! Some will be fool enough to vote for these, I say they have more money than they have ever had, it's time they start living within their budget like all American's have too do!
