Of course, it's the Party of ignorance and hate. Who wants to be part of that trash?

The departure of the Republicans from California might explain why California is going bankrupt. After all, Democrats have never been known for prudent finances.
Exactly

These days whenever you hear somebody use the word "socialist" it is usually a tip-off that they are mindlessly repeating things that they do not understand.

Why would you say California is going bankrupt? They are in far better shape than Virginia.

California receives 87 cents in federal funds for every dollar they pay in federal taxes.

Virgina on the other hand receives $1.68 in federal funds for every dollar they pay in federal taxes.

Missouri receives $1.09 back for every dollar they pay in federal taxes.

Instead of worrying about California finances you should be pondering why the state you live in would not be able to sustain itself without the subsidies they receive from California.

You have proven my point. I bet you are one of those people who alternately calls Obama a Nazi, a socialist or a fascist depending on whatever word Fox and Friends is incorrectly using that day.

California is a rather rich state under a Democratic rule but can you answer me this simple question?

IF REPUBLICAN RULE WORKS SO WELL THEN WHY ARE MOST RED STATES ALL POOR?

Food Stamp Use is Highest in Red States: The Truth Republicans Do Not Want You to Know

Charts of food stamp usage show that while a few Democrat led states have high food stamp usage; food stamp usage is highest consistently across Republican states. What does that say about the Republican approach?

To me, it says that the top down, trickle down theory of economics fails the poor. Under conditions where the poor were helped, one would expect that there would be less reliance on food stamps. People would receive short-term support, a little assistance getting on their feet, maybe some job training, or some assistance paying for community college and would be on their way.

If the poor are uplifted even just slightly then they become tax payers rather than living off food stamps. Republicans are angry about food stamp usage because they have failed to uplift the poor in their states. The top down, trickle down, economic approach has broken social mobility in Republican led states. Republicans are angry because their failed economic approach leaves them with fewer tax payers and more people on welfare.
