Calif. Governor Tells Conservatives to Leave the State

Rate this post

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 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!

    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 per week.
    For all of last year, we saw an average of 3.9 events per week.
    Comparing this year thus far with 2009, when the total was 51 events, essentially averaging 1 per week, our rate today is more than 5 times what it was then.

    The same tracking system has been in place throughout the three-year period.

    Our losses are occurring at an accelerated rate. Also, no one knows the real level of activity because smaller companies are not required to file layoff notices with the state. A conservative estimate is that only 1 out of 5 company departures becomes public knowledge, which means California may suffer more than 1,000 disinvestment events this year. The capital directed to out-of-state or out-of-country, while difficult to calculate, is nonetheless in the billions of dollars.

    The top five destinations are (1) Texas, (2) Arizona, (3) Colorado, (4) Nevada and Utah tied; and (5) Virginia and North Carolina tied.

    Based on the legislature’s recent rejection of business-friendly legislation and Sacramento’s implementation of additional regulations, signs are that California’s hostility towards business will only worsen.

  2. 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 it there, but they will move on to the next state that will accomodate their entitlement mentality, and they’ll trash that state too.

      They’ll be emigrating to Washington State, where state policy is to issue driver’s licenses to anybody who walks in the door waving a utility bill as proof of residence. All our illegals are licensed drivers. Probably registered voters, too. All it takes to register to vote in Washington is a drivers license. You can register online. Almost all the voting is by mail in ballot. We are such an inclusive state, as proved by our “Happiness” scores.

    • Linda,
      Good point. Tell Jan Brewer when she builds the wall, build it between Arizona and Ca. as well. When what you’re describing happens, change the name of Ca. to the state of SanFrancisco. California is a big state. All Liberals should move there, including the Bamster when he’s no longer president.

  3. What a fine example of leadership. CA and all the moonbats down there get what ya voted for…

  4. Ew, all you folk who enjoy “racist” things like the Constitution and limited government can go live somewhere else– California doesn’t like that stuff!

  5. California has been long over due to split. leave the homosexuals,liberals,commies,Hollywood all to theirselves. (Moonbeam) (muzzies)There is definitely a need to split this state.

  6. 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.

    • “Until then I just try to make all the liberal tweeks and hippies eyes bleed.”

      LOL. I love your spirit, Metachemist!

      I hope you find gainful employment in another, better state — soon — before the state of Californication erect barriers against people leaving.

  7. stand wih Israel

    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.
