Can conservatives prevent the U.S. from becoming California? | WashingtonExaminer.com: "What are Californians getting for all this government spending? According to a new census report released Friday, almost one-quarter, 23.5 percent, of all Californians are in poverty. One-third of all the nation's welfare recipients live in the state, despite the fact that California has only one-eighth of the country's population. That's four times as many as the next-highest welfare population, which is New York. Meanwhile, California eighth-graders finished ahead of only Mississippi and District of Columbia students on reading and math test scores in 2011."
Answer: Pretty much what most conservatives could have (and tried) told them they could expect.
The situation is, of course, by design, and that design is being rolled-out nation-wide. When the whole enterprise collapses, that's when the one-worlders step in and say "Gee, having sovereign nations hasn't worked out, we need one world government".
