I can speak on authority on this. Texas is a great state. I moved here from California ten years ago. And for those of you that have not lived anywhere else or been out of the country. Please take my word on this. There is a lot of talk of how we are in the worst recession since the Great Depression first they do not know their history. President Regan inherited from Carter a bad recession with 13 percent unemployment and outrageous taxes the depression had 25 percent unemployment.
Texas has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, the best business climate, relatively low taxes with no state tax.
I move here from California, I might not have been born here but I got here as quick as I could. I tried to get a business going in California because unemployment was very high and I could not get a job that paid anything. So I made my own job. Thought it was a good idea. And the lessons began. But a long, long story short where I am doing very well in Texas I lived in poverty in California. The State had a permit and fee for every aspect of my business. Due to conflicting regulation of the different agencies that was over my business, it was impossible to be in total compliance. And therefore I was always paying fines. The cost of living was very high, state tax as well as a high sales tax. Taxes much higher that Texas for everything from utilities, car registration, property and just everything that could be taxed that a Texan who never experienced this could imagine. I made more money in California, in poverty than I do here in Texas where I make a good living with less income.
So I cannot understand why some Texans want to change this great state and the country with Socialized ideas that are proven to not work. California, New York, Illinois, Michigan as well as other prominently Democrat States all have one thing in common….they are broke needing bailout money! We have examples right here in the United States of why not to follow the examples of Socialized Countries that need foreign aid to stay afloat. I work with a man who is a die hard Democrat, I asked him why don’t he move to California or New York, I got cussed pretty good. So I asked him if he was so opposed to those states why does he want to ruin this state. He did not know what to say.
We now have a former Senator from Illinois from a state with high crime, welfare, drugs, taxes, corruption and unemployment running this country from the White House. Ya’ll call him President Obama. He ruined his state and now moved his views and policies to the National level.
Stalin, Hitler and Saddam Hussein were all voted in and cheered. We all know how that ended!
Wake Up America!!!
