California – A Failed Example of Liberal and Socialistic Policy

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Newman, California Police Corporal Ronil Singh. The young officer lost his life during a routine traffic stop when an illegal alien with a criminal record opened fire. The K-9 handling Officer leaves behind a young wife, a five-year-old son, and a large supportive family.

The sheriff investigating the shooting made it clear the incident could have been prevented, blaming California Sanctuary Law for the officer’s death. The law limits cooperation between local authorities and US immigration officials. It allows illegal aliens that are criminals to have rights they simply don’t deserve. “We can’t ignore the fact that this should have been preventable.” California Sheriff Adam Christensen told reporters. He then questioned, “Why is the state providing sanctuary for criminals and gang members?” Then concluding, “This is a conversation we need to have.”

Corporal Singh’s family immigrated to our Nation lawfully in pursuit of their version of the American Dream. He’s a true American Hero; I can’t even imagine the pain the family is suffering.

The state of California is clear evidence proving that far left liberalism just flat out doesn’t work. It is why hardworking, everyday Democrats need to take their party back from these liberal/socialist extremists that have hijacked their party.

Why on God’s green earth are representatives appointed from this state to chair and/or lead anything in Washington? The state of California has the largest debt of any state at over $1.3 trillion. In addition, it is estimated that they are facing a $477 billion deficit for 2019. They have the highest state income tax in the country and are ranked dead last in Quality of Life according to US News & World Report. The state possesses the 14th highest rate of unemployment.

The Golden State’s Financial Stability has been tarnished as they rank 42nd nationally in this category. Homelessness is up 14%, and one-quarter of the nation’s homeless live in California, which equates to over a hundred and thirty-two thousand individuals living on the streets or in shelters.

With all those tax dollars being collected, California infrastructure ranks 38th nationally, with the highest number of distressed bridges in the Nation. The state does rank 11th nationally in education, however, upon graduation they rank 46th in Post Graduate Opportunity. Just imagine, all dressed up and prepared with that hard left liberal education and nowhere to go to work.

California is also among national leaders in many various categories of crime. Their liberal democratic leadership has made it known they want to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Now there’s a great way to gain control of the crime rate and the illegal immigration problem.

California is on the brink of a financial disaster. Their great liberal ideals eventually will result in a federal bailout. So now let’s take a look at some of the leadership that has created this utopian society.

Longtime Governor Jerry Brown left office this past November; I have yet to figure out if it’s because he was too liberal, not liberal enough or just too old. His governing of the state was an absolute disaster. So what did the liberal voters of California do? Elect another Democrat hell-bent on liberal extremism.

The state’s long-term leaders in Washington want us to follow them to the abyss. First up, Senator Dianne Feinstein. The perfect example of why we need term limits. She’s a big believer in sanctuary cities and California being a sanctuary state. The former mayor of San Francisco has been accused of enabling the Chinese to spy on Silicon Valley. She has always had a soft spot for the Chinese culture and stated that she wanted to model the city of San Francisco after China back in her mayoral days. Recently she was the creator and one of the attempted destroyers of the Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court.

Next up, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, she has eaten at the trough of the American taxpayer for 17 terms. She is simply a dreadful person. I believe she has passed Hillary as the most crooked woman in America. She is a regular on the Judicial Watch top 10 list of corrupt politicians. Her liberal ideas are as far left as possible. She is hard to even listen to.

That gets us to Representative Maxine Waters, Chair of the House Financial Services Committee. This would be the equivalent of putting the fox in charge of the hen house. She has served inside the Beltway since 1991. During the Judge Kavanaugh debacle, Maxine Waters clearly stated that someone accused of sexual misconduct is guilty. So much for the presumption of innocence. Interestingly enough Hollywood director Harvey Weinstein was a major contributor to the California Democratic Party.

The aforementioned Washington regulars have been on watch as California has moved towards financial, moral and ethical bankruptcy. They honestly want us to believe that their liberal left policy and leadership is good for our Nation. All I can say, folks, is that they are an absolute threat to the America we know. We better all wake up people, or they’ll do for us what they’ve done for the state of California.

California is also a perfect example of government-normalized chaos, which is the lifeblood of a liberal politician. The larger the homeless population, drug problem, illegal alien count, or rise in crime become, the more need for government to solve the problem. This is a true liberal philosophy, along with helping and providing aid to everyone, but never solving the problem. I think help is liberal code for making people dependent on government, so they continue to vote for you and government assistance.

What might be most alarming is that Pennsylvania’s elected democrat contingency vote right along with these people.

God Bless America.
