One Californian seems to see clearly. His name is Dan Logue, and he works in California’s State Assembly bucking state social policies that seem never to work.
Logue values personal initiative, believes in freedom, confronts progressive ideology, and speaks the voice of reason in a sea of leftist legislative lunacy. Logue stands alone in the state’s legislative body while watching his comrades take California down.
Logue learned from Governor Rick Perry about how to restore jobs to California in the Texas style. California, however, rejected the Texas model for prosperity, preferring instead to wallow in big debt to continue Californians’ comfort as derived from entitlements.
In a continuing lure of Californians to Texas, Gov. Perry released a radio ad inviting Californians to Texas where establishing a business is easy. “Building a business in California is next to impossible,” said Perry, stating the obvious.
Confronted with California’s continual anti-business restrictions, Logue fomented his own frustration in the Sacramento Bee by postulating a plan to attract Texans to California. With tongue in cheek, Logue lures business to California by citing the state's strengths the “Hollywood” way.
Come to California: Home of the nation's highest taxes on business. . . but we have Disneyland! We're number ONE, in lawsuits, and first in lost profits! We are number ONE again, in the cost of energy. [California is] always stylish. Where red tape is the new black tie. We are proud of being number one! In Poverty. We literally tax the air that you breathe. California: Where hunting is encouraged, especially when state regulatory agencies hunt small business.
Dan Logue stands nearly alone in the Assembly. His minority viewpoint pales as California loses jobs, population, businesses, and prosperity while it ramps up debt, taxes, poverty, and the cost of energy in a state that can no longer be called “Golden.” Logue seeks some kind of sanity in Sacramento but finds nothing but anti-prosperity politics.
Sacramento, you can't be for jobs and against businesses, and still grow the economy -- unless we move the Capitol to Disneyland.
Now, there's an idea.
