The once breathtaking and economic marvel known as the state of California, which boasted the 8th largest GDP in the world, has become a cesspool of liberal ideologies, anti-business sentiment, and a psychopathic montage of finding new ways to screw their citizens.
In a breakdown of the decline of the state of California, the End of the American Dream broke down 16 different areas where Californians are running out of time to either escape from the coming disaster, or be consumed by it.
We will post just a few of the reasons here.
#2 California Is A Horrible Place To Do Business
For seven years in a row, CEOs ranked California as the worst place in the United States to do business. Thousands of good companies have left the state in recent years, and yet California lawmakers continue to pile on more rules, regulations and taxes.
#5 Desperate Municipalities Are Severely Slashing Government Services All Over The State
When you have no more money, you have to start cutting somewhere. In many cities in California, government services are being curtailed dramatically. Just check out what is going on in Costa Mesa....
#7 California Has Some Of The Highest Tax Rates In The Nation
Unfortunately, it is only a matter of time before the politicians come around for even more.
#8 Poverty Is Absolutely Exploding In California
Once upon a time, California was viewed as a land of great opportunity.
Now it is a land of crushing poverty in many areas.
Sadly, the number of children living in poverty in the state of California has increased by a staggering 30 percent since 2007.
In addition, 60 percent of all students attending California public schools now qualify for free or reduced-price school lunches.
#11 California Has Some Of The Worst Schools In The Nation
Many families are moving away from California because the public schools are absolutely nightmarish. The truth is that California has some of the worst schools in the entire nation. In the late 70s, California was number one in per-pupil spending on education, but now the state has fallen to 48th place.
#14 California Has One Of The Worst Health Care Systems In America
All over California, hospitals are shutting down. A big reason for this is because of the massive numbers of poor people and illegal aliens that are taking advantage of "free" medical care at hospital emergency rooms. A number of good hospitals have been forced to shut down in recent years and now the state of California ranks dead last out of all 50 states in the number of emergency rooms per million people.
When corrupt and liberal politicians are allowed to run wild over a city and state government, the results are inevitable. Detroit, New Orleans, Cleveland, and now, the entire state of California.
