Let me put into words what so many of those with rational minds are thinking and saying, but only as a whisper so far...
It is time to abandon California. Leave it. Let the socialist hordes have the state.
To those parasites who believe that entitlements, high taxes, strangling labor laws, environmental regulations, unending illegal immigration and tax-the-rich schemes will somehow lead them into the promised land of prosperity, give them California. They have voted to take it anyway.
The once-golden state has been so tarnished by progressivism that it is time to show them what their 'progress' really means.
If you believe in all that is right, earning wealth honestly, by the fruits of your own labor, it is time for you to leave. If you do not believe in theft, in the idiotic ideology of being a sacrificial lamb to the wolves of statist unions, leave—the sooner the better.
The wiser ones have already left. Soon you will not be left with a choice anyway. Go now.
Give them the beaches and Beverly Hills, the high desert and Hollywood. Let them see how long they can survive on their socialist screed.
Sell your property, move what wealth your have left out of California and leave the rest to the looters and the leeches.
Do not work harder to fund your own demise, they will only spend it, claiming they own you and the fruits of your labor anyway.
Do not send your children to their schools, they will only be taught poison.
They want to end capitalism? Then let them experience what socialism really tastes like (but get out of the way first).
Let them wallow in the $500 billion in pension debt that they alone decided to place upon you and your children's shoulders. It is a ship of their making. Let them sink in it.
Stand up now, face the North and point right. That is the direction you must head.
Find the nearest state that still respects your right to work, a state that is not overrun with union bosses who claim they are your keeper. Perhaps Arizona or Utah, South Carolina, Texas or Florida—find a place that still respects the individual and does not believe that killing job creators is sound economic policy.
Leave Barbara Boxer and Jerry Brown and Nancy Pelosi and all their cannibals behind you. Let the San Francisco elitists dine on their Delta Smelts if they can. Give the unions their Jerry Brown and his fascist regime and let them continue their boycott of states who choose to enforce their laws—then reciprocate.
There is nothing in California left that you need. The cattle? Nebraska beef is better. The lettuce? Grow your own. Disneyland? Orlando's better. Hollywood entertainment? Read a book.
It is time to let California sink under the tyrannical weight of its own Democratic Party principles. You do not need to be part of it. Leave. Now. It is time for California's creators to shrug.
“If you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, his arms trembling but still trying to hold the world aloft with the last of his strength, and the greater his effort the heavier the world bore down on his shoulders—what would you tell him to do?” "To Shrug."
I say this to you, my California friends and family: Time is short. Leave.
“I bring reason to your ears, and, in language as plain as ABC, hold up truth to your eyes.” Thomas Paine, December 23, 1776
