I had the fortunate opportunity to experience living in California for over 6 years because it allowed me to learn first-hand what happens when you
have too many regulations, and taxes in one place. It destroys everything you could potentially love. California is beautiful but it comes at a hefty
price and isn't at all worth its cost of living. The cost goes beyond money and restricts freedom like you wouldn't believe even if you just hear
about it online.
California is also full of smug people, people that think they are better than everyone because they prefer to drive a Prius and believe in the
political nonsense they hear on the local news when in fact it's becoming more dangerous by the day and "green energy" just means buying energy
from neighboring states. But it appeases the masses that are working from 5am to 8pm because they don't have time to really care about anything but
their self-worth since it's a work-a-holic state. I hypothesize that this type of attitude likely stems from the high standards of living there.
However this is a generalization, I have met quite a few people that don't fit within that category but all of them are from either a different
country or a different state. I'm unsure about anyone that fits outside this category.
Since they aren't paying attention to real news, they don't realize that their standardized quality of life is at severe risk because the cost is
ever-so increasing, the value of employees are reducing, and businesses are either leaving the state or closing down because the overhead from taxes
and regulations are far too high. I have tried over and over again to talk to these liberals but they shut themselves in and pretend that it's not
happening even with video or news related evidence.
I'm ecstatic to be leaving this cesspool and I have no plans to ever return. California was a great learning experience but it lasted longer than I
could have wanted. Unfortunately at this rate, the entire US might end up the same way as California because the average mindset is starting to adopt
higher standards of living which are impossible to afford. I hope that it will never come to this, but seeing that certain federally mandated
regulations are being implemented, it seems almost impossible for the whole country to be saved from this impending disaster.
At the current rate, the US will find itself buried in debt, overruled by fascism and the eventual descent into third world class. Before I knew
anything about politics (when I had first moved in California), I had no idea what people were saying when liberals are going to be the death of this
country. I saw it with my own eyes and from the evidence that has been presented over and over and over again that this is certainly true. However,
that does not mean the GOP Republicans can do significantly better as corrupt as they are. Good politicians need to come out for the 2014/2016
elections but even if they do come out, the chances of them getting elected is very slim due to what amounts to bribes and "mass mind control" (not
as literal as you may think). It doesn't mean that we shouldn't try and vote for those that we believe is the better pick. I think the story goes,
Obama won last time because over 2-million registered republicans didn't show up to the polls.
This time around might be the last time you can get your vote counted. The evidence seems to be switching over to socialism more and more every day.
While the exact definition is ever being disputed, it doesn't matter what the terminology is, what does matter is that your well being is at risk for
what you register yourself as a voter from what we've learned with the whole IRS fiasco. I remembered that the Obama administration during his first
year, he wanted to change the way people voted so that it effectively no longer mattered what people voted, rather what the final say on the state
representative would say. Take for instance if you vote for a Republican representative and hope for them to cast their vote for the Republican
presidential candidate, then they could in theory at the very last minute when they receive the votes, turn and vote Democrat. It was a part of the
vote reform thing, but it's hard to search through Google to find it (so if anyone finds info on this, I would like to see this again).
I believe in the USA, I believe in the constitution and like any sane American, the constitution comes before politicians and politicians come after
citizens because the government should be working FOR the people, not the other way around. I believed in the USA so much that I took up the oath
after 12-years of living in the US to become a citizen for the sake of having my voice heard more than just an anonymous forum. I became a citizen
this year because I was tired of the sh*t these politicians are making everyone go through. I'm also tired of people not paying attention to politics
in general and saying "I don't care, it doesn't interest me therefore it doesn't matter".
I honestly think it's perfectly acceptable to stand or not stand for the pledge of allegiance, and I think that practicing both is important as a
reminder to not only yourself but to everyone that you have the luxury of a right to practice freedom of speech. I've lived in two countries that did
not practice this right and in contrast it's a beautiful luxury. So hold on tight to the constitution because as we are right now, the government is
rewording it and teaching children how to misinterpret the original meanings.
Fight for what is right, believe in the good of the USA. It has gone through many ups and downs, and it wasn't always for-the-people like the days of
slavery, but evolving as a nation does not mean to adopt the Liberal agenda and knowing this, is why I will voting as a patriotic American to get my
voice heard. You can talk all you want over the forums or blog comments but the most important thing is to vote. Without that vote, you're all talk,
but if you can't vote yet, being informed is certainly a good start.
You have the right to not vote, and not get informed, but for the love of what is best for the country, inform yourself and take it to the polls. If
you genuinely believe that Liberals are correct, I have nothing against you for voting after spending a considerable amount of time researching the
subject. But whatever you decide to vote for, make it count.
Your one and only job in your life that you're required to do as a citizen is to protect the Constitution. That is your duty. You don't have to
work, you don't have to care about anything, but you have to protect the constitution as an American citizen. I may not be born in the US but I sure
as hell want to do whatever I can to protect the second most beautiful thing in the world (first being my wife).
I hope this enlightens some people in some regards. I don't really mind if you disagree, I just hope that more people will be ready to vote. I'm not
sure if this topic deserved to be in the political madness or rant but I figured since I became more involved due to the political madness, it
deserved to be here.
