    The demise of the Golden State has because of its illegals and its liberal politics has been highly exaggerated.

    Why does California rely so heavily on federal funds to keep a float?

    Politifact:
    The feds can keep their 99 cents, and California will keep their dollar. Sounds about even to me.

    I figured as much.

    Your posts depend more on alt facts than any other sort.

    Yeah ....

    There is nothing more "Alt" than considering Politifact actual fact.

    Want you try some other "Alt" sites like Snopes, Democratic Underground, the Onion, Raw Sewage, etc.

    Where do you get your "real" facts? Is it Brietbart? Perhaps the World Net Daily? How about Infowars? where?

    Let me ask you this .....

    What would happen to California if it received no federal funding?

    You and I both know the economy would crash.

    And, we don't need any "news" source to tell us that.

    TEaxas I am not SURE IT WAS A MARXIST EXPERIENCE. AUSTRALIA IS closer to that > I HAVE BEEN TO MARXIST COUNTRIES RUSSIA CHINA AND VEITNAM AND THE EXPERIENCE WAS DIFFERET> FOR EXAMPLE MEDICINE IS CHEAP R FREE IN THESE COUNTRIES> IN THE USA SOME PILLS COST $400)> THERE ARE POOR AND HOMELESS IN ALL COUNTRIES BUT THE NUMBER SLEEPING ROUGH IN SAN FRANSICO IS VERY HIGH>CALIFORNIA MAY BE MORE LIBERAL THAN OTHER AMERICAN STATES BUT IT IS NOT MARXIST. THROUGH few own homes many own cars and the freeways are extensive. WHItes mainly attend BASEBAll and ICE HOCKEY but blacks may attend other sports. THE CALIFORNIA governor attend PRotests by the poor but TRum dose not . HE IS MORE LIKE PURTIN in this respect.

    Obviously ....

    You have not been here to America.

    Although some of your comment about the US is correct, most is way off.

    If California received no federal funding for anything, and continued to send the same amount back to Washington, it would seriously impact the economy, yes.
    If California received no federal funding, and did not send anything back to Washington, it would experience a net gain.
    If California were to secede and become once again the Bear Flag Republic, it would be a wealthy nation with the fifth largest economy in the world and a higher per capita GDP than the remainder of he United States.
