So …. China has a few trillion of our debt. It’s becoming (has become?) a national security problem.
Deadbeats in the US are voting en-mass for Democrats, who now pass social welfare and tax & spend policies that ensure a permanent underclass hold on our national government.
National Democrats want to remake the nation in the image of California – utterly bankrupt and failed due to decades of Demo misrule. Just like the national future is looking darker the longer Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Frank, Schumer, Rangel…. stay in power…
Here’s a thought: Recover that $2T in debt China owns by…. selling California to China for $2T.
Let China deal with all the deadbeats in CA and the stupefyingly dumb policies Democrats enact there (here).
California could become – again – a free-market capitalist economy, drastically improve its education, put water back on the farm instead of destroying the enormous agricultural economy to save the Delta Smelt, etc.
Our kids would rise to the top of what once was the US educational system, huge amounts of migration likely would go TO California for the enormously better educational future and huge numbers of jobs created in a newly-freed market with lots of native-born risk-takers who would actually be educated rather than baby-sat and propagandized in our K-12 and higher-ed.
Silicon Valley likely could take-off again (after all, we are risk takers and invented most of the IT world) freed from Democrat regulation and nonsense; there’s no reason to think we couldn’t regain that supremacy.
Frankly I’d probably rather live under Chinese free-market economics than California’s poverty-stricken communist future.
But I’d still like to backpack in the Sierras and camp in the Mojave and scuba dive in the Pacific…
Natural selection works – in nations as well as biology.
Something to think about….
