    fyi Re: Fixing california

    I voted "Other."

    How about drastically reducing spending and taxation? California has far too many unConstitutional social-welfare programs as well as oppressive environmental and safety regulations.

    Now "Atlas" is shrugging. Most people don't seem to understand.

    So get rid of this crap, and California will once again become the sixth largest economy in the world

    Agreed, but like the bond issues, those are all entirely untouchable by law without bankruptcy. Those contracts can't be renegotiated without the agreement of the unions who, obviously, won't agree. Likewise, the illegals are untouchable even though we spend $13 billion a year supporting them. The whole system has to topple to fix the problem.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Which, in fact, has been happening, the state of California has had a shrinking population for quite a while. However, it's unrealistic to think that 36 million people are going to move, the rest of the country simply couldn't absorb that kind of mass migration.

    1) The United States Constitution does not apply to spending decisions made by the legislature of the state of California, so long as the Bill of Rights is not violated. Hence "unconstitutional" would really only apply if it violated the state constitution, and I don't have a clue about that.

    2) You're not allowed to even remotely suggest that cutting taxes might increase state revenues, the little socialists that have caused the problem don't want to hear the truth.

    Oh, they don't all have to go, but lose enough skilled workers, and pretty soon the state starts to look like Arkansas, or more likely, Chihuahua.
