California has dug own grave
States’ rights is one thing, but California leaving the union is not mere idle talk. Indeed, the once Golden State has been turned into a dictatorial state with a socialist Democrat governor and super-majority legislature rejecting the U.S. Constitution and federal law. This, for all intents and purposes, means that California has been a separate nation for a long time. It has been increasingly abusing most of our citizens with punishing taxes and regulations, as well as a relentless invasion of crime-producing illegal immigrants.
As for the remainder of America, in just under eight years socialist Democrat President Obama has done to the other 49 states nearly the same thing. The first black president has gone to the extremes of inciting race wars and essentially treating all non-African-Americans as inferior bigots.
Indeed, our nation has yet to suffer the full consequences of Mr. Obama’s insidious superiority-complex reign, which would have been continued by a President Hillary Clinton. Hopefully, President-elect Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” mentality and a Republican Congress will save us, our national security and the country.
Alas, there is little or no hope for Californians.
