Eating Yourself, California Style

Heh... and I'm not talking sexual innuendo, either.

Years ago, I think in South Carolina, politicians had this brilliant idea. Let's tax the rich! We'll take their money from them and redistribute it to everyone else. Which if you think about it- is all that government does. Never do the statists consider spending less. Thus anytime you have a revenue problem, the statist solution is to take more money from people. Usually from those rich bastards. There's not that many of them and we don't like them anyway. 

Mostly, the statists don't even know they are statists.

People are leaving California by the thousands already. When you begin to tax the rich like they did in South Carolina years ago...guess what happens? The rich leave. Tax revenue actually went down. But state doesn't quit taxing. They go after the remaining survivors.

So people don't just sit idly by and let government steal their money. Weird, huh?

The problem California has is that it is filled with people willing to implement and initiate new programs as long as they can do so with your money. Laws for cross dressers and happy meals coupled with welfare for everyone, guarantees that sooner or later you will run out of other peoples' money. Then you are forced to start using your own money to administer that bullshit. One day, all of that good will gets out of control and voila! Everyone is drinking your milkshake- except you.
