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."

California Leads the Way!

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?

Democrats are thick as thieves here. When you have Democrats in charge you have entitlement programs.

This is a great analogy of California. Don't forget the million upon millions of illegal aliens that are on welfare too, because they are.

Now you know why we can never balance the budget here. Arnold guesses that illegal aliens cost this states about 5 BILLION a year. Welfare costs? Don't know, but it's huge.

Have a terrific day.

Yes, the golden state. One of the school districts here in San Diego voted to stop bus service next year to save about $750k from the budget. The city council on the other hand after voting to condemn Arizona, just authorized a couple million from non existent emergency funds to erect a privacy wall to protect the seals in La Jolla from people at the "children's pool". Idiots all.

A solution to the AZ problem?

LOL. I wish it weren't true. I know, I know, "Wish in one hand, californate in the other. See which fills up faster."

Will we ever get our country back?

Don't worry, they're appealing to the state's potheads to shore up the deficit.
