California is home to 1/3 of all welfare recipients (parasites) in the United States. Its socialist agenda has earned it the moniker "The People's Republik of Kalifornia" and yes, it's completely bankrupt. California is a portent for the nation's future if spending is not put in check.
However, might there be a better comparison?
At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.
The lady asked, "Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?"
"A republic," replied Dr. Franklin, "if you can keep it."
IN DEFENSE OF MINORITIES!
"The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities." - Ayn Rand
