A reminder that California and Texas are America's power OTP. They're the most important and useful states. Sadly, California is being corrupted and Texas is being cold towards us. How can we fix this?
gun free liberals vs armed to the teeth conservatives and libertarians
The people of both would be better off if they were broken up into several states each. No one will do this because of non-arguments like "muh size" and "but we don't know what will happen".
>Live in a big city
>Keep voting left because I love getting fucked in the ass :^)
>Government fucking up business
>In huge amounts of debt
>Companies leaving the state in favor of more attractive ones, like Texas
>Lose my job
>Move to Austin, TX
>Vote for the same politics that fucked it up in the first place
>wow why r u guis so mean 2wards us? :(((((
>California is being corrupted and Texas is being cold towards us. How can we fix this?
Disable pic related and wait. Once the cities have been purged and the sane rule again Texas will natural warm back up with the nation due to shift in the balance of power.
Texas here, best state in the country. Too bad Californians keep moving to Austin and making it into SF.2 Fuck these liberal hipster failures of humanity
>They're the most important and useful states. Sadly, California is being corrupted and Texas is being cold towards us. How can we fix this?
1. Deport illegal aliens
2. Get rid of Democratic mayors/Gov't
3. Loosen restrictions on gun laws
4. Tax the fuck out of hollyjew
just let the californians import a massive amount of muslims and let the liberals commit cultural suicide
>mfw wearing my Make America Great Again hat in Cali
power level be damned.
it would spark a race war between mexicans and muslims, sacramento (the dumping ground for refugees in CA) had this issue in the 80s between muslim indonesians and christian south vietnamese
socal is beaner, norcal is chink while jefferson is /pol/. Muslims don't slot in anywhere
I'm California and I am a strong conservative libertarian. In fact, the amount of conservatives I've met is way higher than liberals.
The conservatives make up the population of all the smaller towns and cities, while liberals crowd around LA, SF and have little pothead refuges set up between those cities and Eureka
Honesty the drought in North California isn't all that bad, but we have to send water to the retards in the south and we don't make any profit off of it because they are part of the same state. South California is holding us back more than they know
Doesn't mean others in the State haven't, which to me would be enough to give California and Californians in general the cold shoulder.
I'm aware, and if I remember right it was mostly the northern parts?
The problem is exactly that tho, it's outside the big cities, but the population center is exactly where you'd expect it to be, around the cities.
So what do the politicians cater to?
What they can see.
>This. Holy shit.
Best part? I live in Texas.
Once those 4 things are done, we'd have no qualms with California.
Then again, California recently made it a hate crime to deny the holocaust, so I don't know.
you fags realized that Jerry Brown raised taxes on Hollywood, right? That's why they're scrambling out to other states (like Arizona or the southern states). It's also why TV is shit, because they don't get as many subsidies for it from the state government
>but California isn't so bad! All the people in my rural township are conservative!
Nobody cares. Good on you for keeping the faith alive, I guess. But please don't act like a few podunk downs and gated communities voting Republican somehow redeems your shithole state.
>California recently made it a hate crime to deny the holocaust
That's a thing the UC system did, and only because the current President of the UC system is a friend of Dianne Fienstien who pushed for it.
That's what is slowly happening. As TV fades, so does the economic impact in Hollywood. Everything is CG now, that means that animation studios pull all the weight prop houses, special FX studios, and actors unions used to do. The result is falling tax revenues, to the point that socal and sacramento don't want to give filmmakers and studios special tax breaks (like VAT exemptions for food catering) anymore.
The entire focus is up on Silicon Valley now, because that's where the new money is. It may be a casino but it's one that generates more tax money then hollywood, which itself is turning towards the internet and away from traditional TV/film.
we're still building HSR instead of the delta tunnels
>mfw Texas can't believe there's natural born libs ruining their state
California didn't become a blue state overnight. It slowly changed from emigration of east coast states like Jew York and New Jersey. If you're going to blame anyone then blame Jew York for sending them.
Meh. You get used to it and learn to avoid it or work your way through. At first I was like wtf? But with the traffic we get, it makes a diffference. How about you? How's living with the kardashian wannabe's?
Just left CA myself. It's a lost cause. Prop 187 would have kicked out all the illegals and saved us but it was struck down by the courts. Now demographically the state is lost to the brown hordes who will keep voting themselves free shit and driving out businesses until the whole state is one big Detroit.
Silicon Valley can do what it does anywhere in the country that has Internet access. I used to live in a city in the Bay Area with the most corporate headquarters per capita of any place in the world but they kept packing up and moving to the South. When Google and Apple et al leave and state tax revenues collapse, they'll be caught in a vicious cycle - they'll have to keep raising taxes to finance state spending, which will keep driving out businesses and white people and attracting more net-tax-consuming nonwhites who keep voting for more free stuff.
If you're in California, honestly, do your best to get out before it gets worse. And wherever you wind up, remember what happened to California and make sure it doesn't happen to your new home too.
TEXAS/CALI/ZONA/NEWMEX/NEVADA/UTAH/COLO SOUTHWESTERN MASTER RACE broship forever
rest of America get fucked, except Hawaii. Was there last summer, nice place would visit again
Fuck california. It is every Texan's duty to hate california. Their immigrants are ruining our state as they bring all their liberal shit with them. I've proudly hated california all my life.
protip: most mexicans are hardcore republicans once they gentrify. See texas.
I'm way more pissed off at the chink mafia in SF and SJ.
Apple isn't leaving Palo Alto by the way, they paid top dollar to put their new HQ there. Not that I necessarily disagree with anything you said, once the dotcom boom busts everything will crash especially housing prices. This will fuck everyone over and it'll be really fun to watch.
Take responsibility for your own state's actions. You c/ucks hate California but yet aren't doing anything to stop it. Also, Jew York and the Northern states are the real reason why libs are spreading. They go to high pop. states to convert it into a liberal paradise.
CA isn't the best. That goes to Utah.
t. Mormon spreading his seed in CA
They come for the cheap housing. Oregon got it right: put restrictions on suburban housing and raise property taxes so all the liberals consolidate into Portland. Texas is similar, however while taxes are higher Californian expats have more cash for them in the first place so they're able to spread outside Austin.
Car-exclusive suburbs attracts liberals like flies to shit.
Texan transplanted to California here, can confirm Californians are massive faggots who deserve to be nuked. I wouldn't even mind dying in the blast if it meant this land was cleansed
>implying LA is any less of a shithole than SF
FUCK OFF YOU COMMIEFORNIA SHITS STOP STEALING MY HOOVER DAM WATER AND POWER REEEEEEEEEEEE
Don't be so mean, Nevada-chan. You're our sister state.
I'm sure it's a nice place, geographically.
I'm just worried about being ostracized for having the wrong opinions. I've never been one to tiptoe around other people's insecurities or feelings.
The white Mexicans whose families were here in the 1840s are very different from the shit-colored midgets we've been importing since 1965. I think most Mexicans in Mexico are decent enough people but the ones who cross the border illegally are the absolute bottom tier of criminal retards. Texas has always had a lot of the former kind of Mexican but California has nothing but the latter. They're not going to improve.
The more vibrant residents of SF are already throwing rocks at buses carrying tech company employees because they're mad about gentrification. Whatever 'anti-gentrification' measures they vote in might leave the big tech companies with no real choice but to relocate.
Like I said, I just left CA, and I managed to sell my mom's ordinary 3-bedroom suburban house for $765,000. Paid cash for the new house in Washington and more than half of that sum is left over. I don't know why more people in CA don't cash out. Prop 13 I guess.
>are very different from the shit-colored midgets we've been importing since 1965.
not really since they racemixed with them here like they did down south. Regardless all the actual mexicans are "white" enough now where they hate southern mexicans and centracas
>The more vibrant residents of SF are already throwing rocks at buses carrying tech company employees because they're mad about gentrification. Whatever 'anti-gentrification' measures they vote in might leave the big tech companies with no real choice but to relocate.
The real damage doesn't come from those people. They come from homeowner NIMBYs who vote against zoning reform or mass transit. It is illegal to build structures larger than three stories in most of Silicon Valley, that's why the large companies are getting out. They simply do not fit in anymore.
>Paid cash for the new house in Washington
You moved from California to California. Brilliant. Let me guess, you also live in the Seatac area as well for work?
>Be Colorado native
>Litterally two most hated states here having their own thread
I would die happy, if one day a new story came out tomorrow about how everyone born in California and Texas all simultaneously drowned in their own blood.
>livin in dallas since 96
>fuckin utopian and shit
>things keep getting worse
>more and more brown people
>more and more californians
>texas politicians bragging about texas' wonderful growth
>more and more niggers and californians with the growth
why is this growth a good thing
we should be discouraging outsiders from comning here
this place is fucked i give it 10 years before Texas is just like california
as soon as I have enough money to leave i'm going to move to a whiter state
You steal our power
You steal our power
You import illegals
You import liberals, slowly making us a blue state
You form the bulk of degenerate, filthy tourists.
FUCK YOU FUCK YOU
STOP SHITTING ON US.
>Implying Commiefornians have anything to be proud about
My state is already blue, because you cucks have moved here for the low taxes and voted for them to be higher. Believe me, I hope you faggots stay right where you are.
>Sadly, California is being corrupted and Texas is being cold towards us.
Big brother Texas could kick your ass, CaliBoy.
>implying your state will ever be red
Just so you know, even if you're conservative, everyone will hate you because you're a Commiefornian. Hopefully you cucks succeed and let the new Peoples Republic of California dry up and burn.
>2. Get rid of Democratic mayors/Gov't
This will probably be the hardest part, not because the Dems are powerful, but because the opposition has their head up their ass. The Republican party in CA is a mess, just look at who ran for governor in 2014.
>On social issues, he has described himself as libertarian and "a different kind of Republican", supporting abortion rights, Same-sex marriage, and a path to legal status for illegal immigrants.
>Kashkari owns four guns but considers waiting periods and background checks before purchasing a firearm to be reasonable.
>Kashkari cites Paulson, Mitch Daniels, and Jeb Bush as political mentors. He voted for Obama in the 2008 presidential election and Romney in the 2012 election.
I'm not saying there's no hope, but opposition parties in California will need to be built from the ground up.
Fuck off Cuck state traitor.
Better yet why not actually vote for conservatives instead of being a Cuck and fleeing to other states where you will be hated like the other anon has mentioned
Nah, I live on one of the San Juans between the ocean and a few thousand acres of old growth forest. I'm a financial planner and my town is pretty much all retired people who own yachts. I'm in a good place, I think.
I believe Washington can still be saved. It's still white at least. When I first got here I went into town and didn't see a single nonwhite person in the grocery store, it was amazing.
yeah, how about you take your dude weed faggot ass state, and fall of the end of the Earth
I see more and more commiefornia license plates in Houston and it only disgusts me more and more
Damn I hate Californians
>Damn I just love paying shit tons of money to the guberment
>why are Texans always on the wrong side of history?
>better vote for leftist policies, because that worked out so well for my home state
>why did I move away from there again?
>oh well I can't remember because I breathed too much second hand weed smoke from my shit hole home state, and now my brain cells have the mental capacity of a 4 year old
FUCK you Californians, and stay the FUCK out of my state.
>just vote Republican in California
They've imported so many illegals that the Democrats can't lose anymore. There's literally nothing you can do to stop them from running California into the ground at this point. The only thing you can do to help is to move to a state that's still an active battleground. Being white and staying in California just means being exploited by people who hate you, and throwing away whatever political power you have.
>but who would win in a fight?
Mexicans are liberal in California because it's a liberal environment, Mexicans in Texas are conservative (minus the immigration thing, of course) because it's a conservative environment.
I could say beaners are natural democrats because look at California. They're somewhat flexible in that regard, they'll never convert to Red in mass though because it seems we will never handle the immigration mess.
Even when the republicans came up with the great compromise of "OK, we'll let you have amnesty but we get a wall" Dems didn't want it
True, White California is actually one of the reddest states in the country, but Nonwhite California now permanently outvotes it
Any white people who stay in California will suffer the same fate as white Zimbabweans eventually
We did come up with that compromise. 30 years ago. We were promised a wall. 30 years ago. Democrats got their amnesty. 30 years ago. This is why everyone has to remember not to budge a single inch. The Democrats already got what they wanted and now it's our turn.
>In October 2012, out of the 23,802,577 people eligible to vote, 18,245,970 people were registered to vote.
>the three largest registered groups were Democrats (7,966,422), Republicans (5,356,608), and Decline to State (3,820,545).
>Total votes in the 2012 Presidental Election: 13,202,158
>Mitt Romney 4,839,958
Realistically, I think at the very least Trump will be able to turn out the full number of registered Republicans in California. He may even draw in a few Democrats and Independents. But a full victory seems impossible.
Remember, Schwarzenegger won partially because Gray Davis was very unpopular after taking on the teacher's union. Also some people didn't know he was a Republican until the had their ballots in front of them.
>TFW San Diego County alone has more than five military bases
Gee, that would concern me if you had the logistics to back those troops up.
>Texas is being cold towards us
Who is "us", faggot? Texas is very welcoming.
It's also robbing Cali of it's economic power at a fairly steady rate. But that's what happens when your corrupt state government tries to hold its resident industries hostage to pay for all the gibs it promises.
Cali and Tejas are more similar than different. Both used to be part of Mexico, so all you niggers saying they're full of beaners are retarded. Both started the 20th century with oil booms, shifted to manufacturing mid century then heavily invested in technology in the 60's and 70's. CA isn't as liberal as everyone thinks unless you're in Hollywood or the Bay Area. Go more than 20mi inland most places and it gets real rural real fast. TX isn't as conservative as everyone thinks, just go to Austin or the Gulf Coast. Both are economic, cultural and military powerhouses being invaded by North Eastern shit heel Mass-holes. TX has better bbq, CA has better burritos.
>be me, Cali dude in Texas for a conference
>get shitface blackout drunk on $5 lone star tall w/ boy fireball shot drink special
>wake up like this:
>tfw this is where i go shooting
>tfw this is not california
>tfw sycamore creek is 15minutes away
feels good man
>Instead, the state collects revenue from property taxes (though these are collected at the county, city, and school district level; Texas has a state constitutional prohibition against a state property tax) and sales taxes.
So although you pay no property taxes directly to the state of Texas, for the sake of comparison the map gives an average across the whole state for property taxes.
On a somewhat related note, good job not having a state income tax.
ahahaahahaha, fucking Commiefornian can't defend his shitty faggot state any longer!
Don't be so tsundere, fellow Western states.
How's San Diego? Heard it's nice and Italian.
There would be no war, just Texans spanking the fuck out of commiefornia
>Giant country with a diverse geography
>One of the wealthiest nations in the world
>People still willingly live in deserts
C-could we help you, Texas-senpai?
Don't need it, but thanks.
Florida is alright, as long as it isn't south Florida
You know, it wasn't always this way. It wasn't all that long ago either.
The parasite and the host. Guess which one has a gold standard?
Colorado reporting. Pic is our national monument I took on New Year's
I wouldn't lump us in with CA or TX. Us and New Mexico are more close with Montana and Cascadia states than all of you guys. All of us love educatedness, beauty of winter and mountains, craft beer, music, and art. It's a weird mix of libertarianism and a laid back attitude that the two "powerhouse" states just don't share.
..Utah can come too, ignoring the whole Mormon thing
I think much of the reason for that is the Asians in San Francisco remember how shitty life was back in communist China, Vietnam and Cambodia.
how do you get down there to that road.... and what road is it ? beautiful, in all honesty.
Pic taken northeastward from: 39.1051124, -108.7381090 (Rimrock Drive, around Fruita, CO)
So yeah, the photo is of the same road that I took to get up there. Here is another one for you, friend. Same road, further down east.
There were fewer than 5000 people in Texas, not counting the injuns, when the Mexican government invited Anglos to settle there after their own colonists all packed up and left rather than deal with Comanche raids. over 90% of the hispanic population arrived during the 20th century. the vast, vast majority of hispanics in texas do not have deep roots here. the same goes for california and arizona. only new mexico had a large hispanic contingent from the start
