California Leads The Way

california-flag-burningIn recent decades the phrase, “As California goes, so goes the nation” has become commonplace, strongly implying that California leads the way in America’s political, social, and economic trends. Sadly for America’s future, this is not a wholly unfounded idea.

One need only look to the effects of California’s leftwing, neo-Socialist laws, regulations, and taxcode upon small businesses to see that, if California leads the way, then that way is to financial ruin.

This is not to say that California doesn’t provide many well established routes for Californians to start small businesses, the driving force in employment.

California’s Many Routes To Starting A Small Business

It’s just that those routes all lead out of California and into states with less punitive laws and taxes and, obviously, the jobs those small businesses would provide followed along the same routes.

Both sadly and scarily, California did lead the way in this.  On a national scale America is suffering the same fate as our laws, regulations, and tax code drives corporations overseas because offshoring is the only way that they can survive in the current global market.

    Excellent cartoon! I imagine CA taxpayers find it cuts to the bone a bit but its captures a truth.

    I am shocked to see you bash California . The home state of former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi isn’t even last among the 51 states in unemployment. The government lists the District of Columbia as a state on it’s list of this category, which is still less than the 57 the President has visited .

    Harry Reid’s state is number fifty-one followed by Rhode Island . California is only third worst . The People’s Republic of Maryland is 19th , which shows that it is good to be as close as possible to the patronage center of the universe .

    But to get back to the Golden State, it is amazing what green energy, and an outright hatred of business can accomplish . I wonder if we could pay Mexico to take it back .
