You know what, I was born there. I would not feel bad at all. Just give Mexico Californian. We can send all our illegals there.

Oh, but people will say what about their economy, it is like the 5th in the world. Well, it will take like 2 years and it will be the 50th, then in another 2 years it will be the 398th, etc etc etc.

Time to cut our losses. Hell, the La Raza component of the Democrat party want it to happen. Why the hell not, just give it to em.

Make it a requirement they have to keep all of the Hollywood Elite. They have to take all the POS like Sean Penn and his ilk.

God I wish we could do it.


You know what is going to happen. The rest of us are going to be taxed to pay off their debt. What the hell do you think the last two under the cover bailouts were for? What do you think the next one is for?

Ranting tonight! You need to host radio! America economy is currently the largest in the world. While China is second and Japan is third. America should follow China's economy plan with market reforms.

A star for you!
They would succeed from the Union. That's fine.

as this place just completely falls apart. Good luck
maintaining the infrastructure.

You do know that California is like the 5th largest economy in the world right?

But, it is also one of the BIGGEST GDP/Debt ratio in the world also right?

But sadly my inflated state will live on and most likely be more prosperous than the other states.

Trust me I see it all around me. It's like a comedy stock can go up and then it can quickly sink below.
Have you seen the thread about Capitalism never being fully practiced?
This is what America needs to start doing.

How about we kick out the illegals, La Raza type groups, and other California far-leftists that are driving the state into the ground and keep California. It's a beautiful land full of resources that those people don't deserve.

Also the fiscal conservatives who are very greedy. California has been suffering with Republican governor Arnold for a long time now!

Sounds like a great idea.....but, What about Yosemite and the redwoods? There will be graffeti all over Yosemite, and they'll cut down the redwoods to grow pot. That would be sad. Once they reduce California to what Mexico now is, they'll start creeping inward for more.

Arnold is about as fiscally conservative and republican as his wife, Maria Shriver. One thing to give Arnold is that he wanted to tackle the pension problems within the state workers unions. Too bad he got beaten back so bad that the rest of his governorship turned out to be an impotent and incoherent mess.

That's why I wanted to keep Governor Gray Davis. At least he knew what he was doing!
California is the state with the largest welfare system. Having mega corporations be too cheap to hire citizens and ship jobs over seas or hire illegals to do the jobs makes me wonder why don't we have a world wide economy in the first place.

I say we give Mexico and Canada to the United States and finally form that North American Union we've been talking about.

No need to worry about pesky 'illegals' then, is there?

Where you saying that when he was underneath President Bush all the time? Seems Republican to me. Of course some people who don't know the history of Republican politics would only disagree.

What, you actually think the Republicans of old would claim BUSH? You have to be kidding me.

BUSH was the direct causal creation of the Tea Partiers. People love to use Obama as an example or cause, WRONNGGGGGGGGGG!

Look into the actual creation of the conservative/libertarian uprising and you will see the TRUTH.

Sorry, never ONCE voted Republican. Still waiting for someone to actually accuse me of it. I would only laugh. Especially since I have called out REAGAN for being just a liar when it comes to our TRUE beliefs. Yeah, he use to be REALLY swell using OUR beliefs and then destroying our fiscal policy.

Yep, now we have Obama attempting to say HE is fiscally responsible.

I was laughing so hard blood was coming out of my eyes.

Whether you call it Neoconservative or Liberalism I have found that looking for books on economics that the current systems faced with many of the current and former world leaders.

Like this book right here! What do you think of the cover? Seems every country is mixed economy.

Giving CA back to Mexico would have several advantages.

After reflecting on the situation, I think it would be a great way for the US to drop some dead weight.

CA could get to work implementing a socialist paradise, while the rest of the US would be free from its outrageous debt burden.

California is not the only reason the U.S. is suffering from economic woes. Here's a great article I read and I would like to share with you.

Sorry, I quit reading economics on the keynsian components. I have read about 20 of their books. They have always got me confused. Their math never works right.

Ever since college, and my lackluster grades I received, I find that I was right.

I had economics in college and argued with my profs that the economy could not be maintained.
NOW, they gave me piss poor grades. In the existing atmosphere, I think they translate into 4.0 grades!

Just because someone teaches something, does NOT mean they are right.
