Californian Here

Why the hate on California?

Been living in Cali for 12 years now and although we have our hiccups, it has been steadily improving for the better, fewer political gridlocks (lately), cleanest emission standards and easy and uncriminalized access to cannabis.

Not only is CA producing over 11% of the Entire US GDP (on its own, CA would be the 12th biggest economy in the world, more then Canada and Aus and just under India and Russia), but it is also a giver state, meaning it subsidizes many red state who would simply collapse without federal funding.

BONUS: After many years of budget fighting, we have a SURPLUS! You can play politics and hate on progressives all you want but you cant argue against the facts.

Conclusion: Chill out and come visit, it's nice out here, we'll smoke a bowl and kick it on the beach for a while. Don't listen to the media.
