See, this is where things get hazy.
When Dems act too fucking Dem, then shit gets crazy, where you have idiots with these fantasies of zero carb emissions, everyone eating perfectly organic all the time, everyone using public transit, basically the bat-shit crazy version of Liberalism.
Dems here have imposed taxes on middle class people, because many of the rich have left, along with businesses, because more and more poor people (aka illegal aliens) have come across the border, making the remaining people pay for everyone.
Because SO many rich people, business owners, and industry have left, we have the 2nd highest unemployment, so the Dems lowered the tax brackets so that "being rich" is now making $47k/year as an individual.
Taxes on car registration, property taxes, income, sales, and removing the child tax credit was expected to bring in an estimated $60 Billion, yet we STILL would be running a $29 Billion deficit.
We passed a bill to allow state spending to be made public, and the state legislature refused to do it. A court order was issues, and it STILL was refused. The next step will be a fucking revolution, of course I will be there.
To sum up my rant, when Dems get bat-shit crazy, they become California, where we passed a law to mandate that hospitals use fitted bed sheets, because nurses complained about back pain when making up the beds (not joking either).
