1. Do we need a clearer picture?

The so called "job creators" are much busier in Ca than in the poor state of Ka as well.

2. One way or another, people get the government they deserve.

3. Exactly

If many more people had a clue all of the US would be like California.

I mean - in 2000 Bush didn't really win but over 40 million people voted for a dry drunk half bright draft dodging frat guy who was verbally challenged. Proving they would vote for a cabbage if the republicans ran one.

I was not shocked to see a recent poll showing that 42 % of people could not name all three branches of government and 26% couldn't name even one.

5. He promised them a tax cut. That's all that matters to a lot of them.

You could run on a platform of intending to make the human race extinct by 2050 and get a Republican nomination if you (credibly) promise the biggest tax cut. They're just corrupt citizens.

All they demand from leaders is demonize whatever minorities they themselves hate, and give them a tax cut bribe for their vote. All they care about.

6. Of course, once taxes are deeply cut, individual fees go up, so instead of spreading

the cost around so those who have more can contribute their fair share, the working class individual ends up paying through the nose for services that once were covered by taxes paid according to a progressive tax schedule.

8. Doesn't matter to them. Rationally calculating their interests isn't in their wheelhouse.

They just want the payment - the cash in hand. The tangible evidence that they're Smart, even if subsequent events prove otherwise - which they can easily just blame on everyone else.

7. Maybe Cali has more rich to tap?

 

Perhaps Whiskey Tango Foxtrot indeed.

10. Koch brothers live in Kansas.

They probably own several homes in California, but KS is their official state of residence.

11. I'm a melancholy man

 

I'm a melancholy man, that's what I am
All the world surrounds me and my feet are on the ground
I'm a very lonely man, doing what I can
All the world astounds me and I think I understand
That we're going to keep growing, wait and see

9. Same thing happened in Minnesota, just like Cali.

So much for the bs meme that the budget can't be fixed by taxing rich fucks more.
