Calif. Governor Tells Conservatives to Leave the State

A member of California’s Riverside County Board of Supervisors, Republican Jeff Stone, has proposed that 13 counties in Southern California secede to form their own state.

Those counties are in the largely rural, Republican-leaning southeast of the state, and include Riverside, Imperial, San Diego, Orange, San Bernardino, Kings, Kern, Fresno, Tulare, Inyo, Madera, Mariposa and Mono counties. That would leave Los Angeles to remain with the liberal coast and northern part of the state.

Gil Duran, California governor's press secretary

RedState.com reports that the response by a spokesman for Governor Jerry Brown, 34-year-old press secretary Gil Duran, is:

“If you want to live in a Republican state with very conservative right-wing laws, then there’s a place called Arizona.”

In effect, California’s governor is telling conservatives to leave the state!

Already, California’s unemployment rate is 11.7% compared to 9.1% for the nation as a whole. Even the NY Times says California’s budget crisis may be the worst in the nation, with a $26.6 billion budget deficit comprising nearly a third of the state’s budget. California owes $2,362 in debt per resident of the state, and pays a 20% premium to borrow money compared to better-run states; its A- credit rating from Standard & Poor’s is the worst in the nation. All of which would only worsen if conservatives really leave or secede from California.

Liberals are such warm and fuzzy and tolerant people! Way to go, Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown!

H/t beloved fellow Tina.

Calif. Business Departures Increasing — Now Five Times Higher Than In 2009 Today, California is experiencing the fastest rate of disinvestment events based on public domain information, closure notices to the state, and information from affected employees in the three years since a specialized tracking system was put into place. Out-of-state economic development officials are traveling through the state to alert frustrated business owners and corporate executives to their friendlier business climate versus California’s hostility toward commercial enterprises. From Jan. 1 of this year through this morning, June 16, we have had 129 disinvestment events occur, an average of 5.4… Read more »

Jerry Brown and the legislature will continue to behave in such a way that will continue to drive business from the state. Hey, he might get his wish; most of those conservatives just might eventually relocate to a state that is business and person friendly. California actually is destined to eventually be an extension of Mexico, without just about as many job opportunities. Once illegals and their enabling relatives finish trashin California, there wil be nothing left but sleepy dusty little barrios with the Cartels running everything. Some of them wil leave Cal. as well. They will get sick of… Read more »

I was born and raised here in Californiastan. Back when it was a decent state and you only had the fruits and nuts to deal with, You know Utah is looking better every day.
Then there’s Texas, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and parts of Colarado I like. Just need to find gainful employment before I move.
Until then I just try to make all the liberal tweeks and hippies eyes bleed.
But Utah has a State gun… GOD Love em.

I found Missouri to be a very nice replacement for CA. Just stay away from the big, trashy cities on either end of the state….and from the tiny towns where good ol’ boys and girls have run things since their great-greats settled there generations ago. Other than that, we’re pretty corruption-free and traditional all-American.
