This thread is definitely good news.  In fact, one might get a better return on one's activism investment by finding ways to get more socialists to move out in droves rather than trying to herd the libertarians into the state.    Any ideas?   >:D


Odd, since much of the food in NH is imported.

Hopefully not for long!  [2]

I find this interesting since the people who eschewed NH for Ca based their decisions on personal preferences rather than politics based in the logic of the US Constitution and how it applies to the lives of all citizens.  Apparently they don't care if their state of Ca is bankrupt and pays its workers and contractors in IOU's.  They obviously like to be subjected to the ever pervasive penetration of the state into the personal lives of its citizens when it steals an extra 10% of every workers paycheck without so much as even a vote from the citizens they are stealing from there.  This was a confiscation of private income without nary a vote from anyone to approve or not approve this theft.  Ca called it a "loan" but I would like to see anyone walk into a bank, demand even $10 and walkout saying they will pay it back at some unnamed and uncertain time.. You would be arrested immediately.  This couple must prefer to be controlled by the state rather than making individual decisions based in liberty that doesn't depend upon the state for the consequences of their actions.  Sounds to me like they belong in Ca.

I'd rather have people happy in California than miserable in New Hampshire, whether they believe the wrong thing or not.

California would probably be the best state in the union were it not for the people. I'm going to miss the weather and the food. But I won't miss the people.

I'm a big fan of urban secession.

Split California into four parts -- Greater SF Bay, Greater LA+SD, North Cal, and South Cal -- and everyone would be better off.  The two urban offshoots should contain the most densely populated areas and surrounding suburbs (see map here), and splitting the remainder North / South simply makes geometric sense after that.  That way the two urban areas can go Über-Socialist and fail, while the rest of the landmass can practice greater fiscal sanity and succeed.

The same should be done to all major mentropolitan areas, but especially Greater NYC (including North Jersey, etc) and Greater Chicago.  The democrats will never win another national election, and the Republicans will finally be able to split between Libertarians and Theocrats, creating three national parties of roughly equal size.

I'd love to see NorCal and SoCal.  SFBA and north of it to the OR border is one of my favorite places on Earth.  The NorCal/SoCal idea has been around for generations.  I remember it from science fiction when I was a little kid.  I think SFBA could quickly become pretty awesome if the NorCal/SoCal split happened.

P.S. I'm typing this on a laptop w/ a Verizon EVDO card while sitting in my new apartment in Salem, NH.  I moved this weekend.  But, I think I'm going to wait until I can get a cool mover number to update my address...  Maybe something like 808, 911, 1337, 1911, or 10,000 =)

Just splitting CA north/south wouldn't change anything politically, the idea is to keep urban cesspools from dragging the whole state down into socialism with them, while at the same time letting them focus on the things that are important to them: urban rail, local pollution regulations, etc, etc, etc.  Competitive city-states like Singapore aren't so bad.

Big kudos on your move!  Just hit the counter ASAP - you tell me any number, and I'll list the reasons why it's cool...  in any base necessary!  ;)

Nationally, though, it could also change the makeup of the Senate.

I am in San Diego right now an just had coffee with a defense attorney that does medical marijuana defense, she said there is a County Attorney task force state wide comprising of County prosecutors. They have all basically agreed no prosecutions for MM if not abused this means possession and grow as required per medical case.
I pay little attention to MSM and the legislature out here but I recall hearing something about legalizing pot. Keep in mind this is the State that Legislature is floating ideas like ending free parking in the entire State and a single payer Cuban style medical system.
