Two recent stories in the media show the destructive impact that socialism has on economies.
1. First, Governor Jerry Brown of California signed AB 130, the "Dream Act" into law. From the article:
"Following through on a campaign promise, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law Monday easing access to privately funded financial aid for undocumented college students. He also signaled that he was likely to back a more controversial measure allowing those students to seek state-funded tuition aid in the future."
In other words, illegal aliens are now eligible for in-state tuition for the California colleges and universities. Here's the article: Brown Signs Dream Act
2.Second, Businesses are leaving California in droves. From the article:
"Buffeted by high taxes, strict regulations and uncertain state budgets, a growing number of California companies are seeking friendlier business environments outside of the Golden State. Companies are "disinvesting" in California at a rate five times greater than just two years ago."
Here's the article: California Companies Fleeing the Golden State
Why are these connected? Because this shows simple cause-and-effect. California taxpayers already pay out hundreds of millions of dollars to illegals in health care, school, food stamps, etc. (Los Angeles county pays $1 Billion annually in health care costs alone). Because of this the taxes on individuals and businesses increase. The businesses won't tolerate the taxes, so they move out. Which means higher unemployment. Way to go, California. Screw the legal citizens so you can gain favor with the illegals.
Why should we care about what happens to California? Because Obama is a socialist. And he's also trying to sneak in a nationwide "Dream" act - he wants YOU to pay for some illegal's education. So in addition to your already crushing taxes and expenses running your family, Obama wants you to pay for the education of someone who broke into this country and has stayed here against the law.
We conservatives need to really start putting the screws to Obama and the democrats. We can't allow socialism to advance in this country. John "Crybaby" Boehner showed a little spine last night, but he still has a long way to go to stop Obama's socialist agenda. It's time for us to continue to support the Tea Party and make it known to everyone that the only thing that the Obama agenda will do is force everyone into poverty so we can pay the way for criminals and illegals. That's hardly a future that most thinking people want.
