As we look at the condition of the once Golden State, many rational people are asking why so much bizarre and budget blowing legislation is being passed by the legislature in Sacramento.
Here is a possible answer. The left got control of the schools quite a few years ago. Therefore, many things are not being taught. Let’s start off with accurate history, government, geography, analytical thinking skills, mathematics and science. So much that is being taught is incomplete, inaccurate and biased. Of course, many of today’s teachers received their education at colleges where the left view of life was the only view and anything even leaning conservative was discarded. No wonder so many people want their children in well run charter schools or are home schooling their children.
Many Californians have left or are planning to leave the state. Many of these are people who have lived in the state their entire lives. They earned their living here and raised their families. They have now found that living here has become too difficult economically and culturally.
The truly sad thing about the situation in California today is the incredible ignorance of so many voters about what is really going on in the state legislature. Legislation is being passed that does only one thing: limit the freedom of people in California and take their money. Of course, the elite class continues to live very well. They do not have to deal with the daily problems of the working class.
Here are five freedom limiting laws passed by this current Legislature.
Let us remember that our legislature never rests when thinking of ways to get more money from the taxpayers. California supposedly has a $16 Billion reserve. That sounds like a great figure if we pay no attention to the condition of PERS and STERS.
Since the start of 2018 the California Tax Foundation has identified 91 bills that lawmakers will consider that would increase taxes and fees by more than $272 Billion annually. Here are some of the bills up for consideration:
A ruling class definitely does not want an educated, informed populace. Of course, it is the obligation of a citizen to stay informed and ferret out the truth. If the average California tax payer does not start paying attention and get involved in the political life of the state, California,
in spite of its resources and hard working people, will become a failed state.
