    California is the perfect example of what happens when liberals control everything.

    California is the eighth largest economy in the WORLD!!

    Of course, this makes it also the largest economy in the USA by a large margin. Also, Californians pay $1.00 in federal taxes and receive back only $0.78 in return benefits.

    There is even a movement in California (by ultra conservatives of course) to have California leave the USA, as it is as it would seem that er are bankrolling most of the RED conservative states. Perhaps if we would then be able to stop paying for poorer states in the Mid West and the South, then we could straighten out our own economy?

    But, I personally think that we can manage without such extreme methods!!

    Here’s a good one for you the Philippines gov. has told their people to contact their families in America to vote for Romney, because he will outsource more jobs to the Philippines, where Obama is trying to stop the out sourcing.

    Please explain to me why America was number one in the world economy, with businesses growing. The middle class growing at a great rate, when all the supposedly oppressive regulations, and high taxes were in effect. And every time we have more deregulations and tax cuts things go down hill.

    Take a look at a little history every time California has a bad time; it’s been with a Republican Governor. That’s why Jerry Brown won so easy, he cleaned up the mess Reagan left there.

    And these are the tags that were used by the republicans in the last elections.

    Scott, I tried looking up Ronald Reagan, but they told me he was dead and I couldn’t dig him up.

    LIsa DOES raise a valid point, even if from backassward world view: IT IS IMPORTANT for folks to pay close attention to their state and local races, especially for the House and Senate.

    It is the brainwashed LOCAL electors who gave us Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, and other right-wing lunatics bent on destroying the nation, to profit their masters, in the corporate world. It isn’t even that tenth of a percent of the 1% of INDIVIDUALS, so much as the power granted by SCOTUS with Citizens United that has destroyed WAY too much intellect in the “voter”. It is the MACHINE, not the mechanic that has run over the middle class.

    As example: Toyota, Honda, BMW, Hundai build their cars in the U.S., who CARES if 5% of Jeeps sold in China are built in China? Boeing is building most sub-assemblies for their airplanes in Asia, shipping jobs overseas, does anyone outside the industry, and the laid off workers in the U.S., notice?

    We ARE in a totally global economy, products ARE the result of manufacturing in multiple components in different locations, some jobs in China ARE GOOD for jobs in the U.S.! WE need someone who knows how it works, and most “locally elected” politicians don’t have any more a clue than their constituents. THAT is NOT GOOD! So, pick wisely, if you can.

    So THAT’S what a straw man looks like.

    @Robert Landers

    Wrong. I live in Southern California. Northern California has always felt we don’t belong in the same state with them. They would prefer to have a Northern and Southern state, and there aren’t enough Conservatives in Northern California to influence anything. Why do you think we are in so much trouble? It’s as blue a state as you can get…

    The rich always found ways to avoid taxes during the 50’s and 60’s and the estate tax was a haven for lawyers to create trusts to divide estates into smaller, less taxable entities. I am an accountant and dealt with it professionally all my life. I agree with bringing back Glass-Steagall.
    Your protection from corporate America is already happening: business is leaving the country and your choices for products will become more limited and more expensive. It’s called supply and demand…

    Mitt says, 2+2=47. Hmmm, does that add up? Only time will tell.
