The state of California seems determined to self-destruct. Since there is not much the rest of us can do to stop them, we can at least observe their example and learn how not to govern a state. Of course, a populace that is happy to return Governor Moonbeam to the state’s top office clearly shows evidence of coming unhinged. So what’s next?
Those in the majority have a dream of a California filled with illegal immigrants, almost unlimited welfare programs, generous public pensions, and most everything else on the liberal menu. It won’t work for a bunch of reasons, including the conflicting demands of various minority groups, and the fact that the state cannot generate the money needed to fund all these programs. In other words, somebody is going to be left holding the bag, and it’s not going to be pretty.
As long as the state is in self-destruct mode, they might as well see how far they can push things before the collapse. In that regard, California is proud to announce that it has issued driver’s licenses to over one-million illegal migrants. What an accomplishment. The state cannot put its finances in order, but it can reward violation of immigration laws by providing driver’s licenses.
“In 2013, California lawmakers passed legislation that allowed illegal aliens to obtain driver’s licenses if they can prove to the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) their identity and state residency. The plan was one of the largest victories to date by the open borders lobby.
“Years later, an estimated 905,000 illegal aliens have driver’s licenses in California, according to the Sacramento Bee, despite issuances beginning in 2015. The number of illegal aliens in California with driver’s licenses is likely to surpass one million before the end of this year.”
If that’s not enough, it is with no surprise that we find the globalist billionaire George Soros actively afflicting the state of California in another area.
“Soros groups are currently pushing a plan that would make it illegal to not rent a residence to an illegal alien because of their immigration status, Breitbart Texas reported.”
Leftists and leftist ideas are either born in California or are attracted to the state. It’s a pity as there are areas outside the cities where common sense prevails. And it is a beautiful state. It is tragic that it is setting itself up for some very difficult times. At that point it will do no good to say, “we told you so.”
