The writing is on the wall. California is too big to fail...or more to the point, there are too many Democrat voters at risk.

It seems likely that California voters are done with tax increases and the ones that haven't left won't vote for more tax increases. Legislators have rejected their responsibility to govern. How much leadership does it take to throw taxpayer money at any problem? A child could do that. No one wants to make the hard decisions to end discretionary spending and squeeze agencies to cut costs. Every pet project is a sacred cow. No one can muster the simple courage to quit providing services to illegal aliens which in itself would just about close the budget gap.

Will the federal government bail out California? This would simply be Democrats taking Red State (read responsible conservatives) money and giving it to Blue State (read nutty liberals). It hardly seems fair that a farmer in Oklahoma, in thanks for feeding the world, will be taxed to pay for an illegal alien minor's abortion in Berkely.

I never have considered the possibility of a revolt against the federal government but I see states like Montana, Oklahoma, and Texas passing what amounts to sovereignty-defining laws that clearly are a finger in the federal eye. It's going to be interesting.

Ca voted down all of the tax increases yesterday, since they want all the rest of us to pay for their insane lifestyles.

Illegal aliens cost California 10.5 billion a year...the citizens tired to do something about it and were over ruled by the courts. This is on top of having gobs of oil off the coast. Oh well.

Ca lets everyone else provide their water, generate their power, provide them with oil /gasoline. Why should they have to "get a real job" like all the dummies [like us] in the red states who send them the welfare money for their Illegals?
