California Ranks as Poorest State, One of the Worst for Income Inequality

If you can't relate to what is happening to the people in Venezuela, try California, Taxed to Death. Human Sh#t on the side walks, Green Energy no body can afford. And a huge Caste System, between the haves and the have nots, with Gates and Fences and Hollywood Red Carpet to keep the Rif-Raff out. Guess who has the little peoples money?

California Ranks as Poorest State, One of the Worst for Income Inequality

In recent years, we’ve been hearing more and more about the problem of wealth inequality in America. To hear liberals explain the problem, Republicans want to steal from the poor and middle class, give that money to the rich, and with enough time the middle class will be gone, leaving just a small ruling class of the super-rich, and a large poor class.

If liberal policies actually made any sort of progress correcting the various inequities that they’re alleged to do, big government utopias like California would be progressive beacons of hope for the American left. California, many believed, was so progressive and forward thinking that it would experiment with various social policies and the rest of the states would follow suit. Hence, the so-called “Golden Rule” of the nation was once “as California goes, so does the country.” So, how is California doing with the problem of wealth inequality?

Not so good.

Despite having the fifth-largest economy in the world, California is one of the worst states in the nation in terms of wealth inequality.

It has both billions of dollars in Silicon Valley and rampant homelessness. Its efforts to eliminate poverty instead accentuates it, and its tax system inadvertently aids those who are already wealthy. With the middle class leaving in droves, California society represents a modern feudal system of robber barons and the poor.

Despite all the wealth in the state and the Democrat control of state government, California actually ranks as the poorest state in the country after costs of living are factored in. A whopping 19 percent of Californians live below the poverty line. While California represents just 12 percent of the nation’s population, Californians represent a third of all Americans on welfare. The average monthly cost of rent in the state is 43 percent higher than the national average. Nearly a third of Californians spend more than half of their earnings on housing. The situation is made worse by skyrocketing energy costs. “Residents who can afford rent or a mortgage are on the hook for electricity rates burdened by green initiatives and regulation that grew 500 percent faster than the national average from 2011 to 2017.”

How many remember this one? THE "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, more commonly referred to as the “stimulus.” Obamies big Income Redistribution plan. He wasn't in office 5 minutes, before that one. Thats when every red flag went off for me, I knew what he was and what he was about.

That money went into his Socialist Buddies pockets faster than you can say "scat", out of the country into "Green Energy" Companies, that closed their doors as soon as they got the money. Remember He said it was for Jobs and Our Nations Failing Infrastructure. We still have the failing infrastructure and I think 10 jobs on a golf green somewhere. A lot of the money went to the Al Gore and his ilk to Give New Life to the Global Warming Scam.

And these are the "Terrorist Goons", that the people want to "Take Care" of them. I suggest they look towards a New Baby Sitter, I'm sure there is a Ted Bundy type out there. Oh ! Wait a minute, we already have that!, they call themselves D-e-m-o-c-r-a-t-s, L-i-b-e-r-a-l-s.
