Victor Davis Hanson explains how California has gone from the most prosperous state to having the highest poverty level in the US with tent cities, disease and open drug use.  He says that Facebook, Google and Apple brought $3 trillion into the state and, along with Hollywood and the universities, made rules that they are not subjected to themselves.  New green regulations resulted in raising the price of housing, small businesses fled, gasoline taxes increased and income tax rose. In addition, 10 to 15 million illegal aliens crossed the southern border into the state.  The golden state accounts for one third of all welfare recipients and 20% of the residents live below the poverty line.

One of the chief things that ushered in the one party system in CA is the Top Two vote scheme. Another problem is the term limits law.

So they have been trying to micro-manage us, which isn’t their function.
