California’s Leftist politics have transformed the once-great state into a decadent cesspool of poverty, degeneracy, and corruption that’s on a downward spiral to ruin. Nevertheless, California still wants to tell everyone else how to live.
They’ve gone so far as to place a travel ban on states that don’t buy into the LGBT agenda. But Tennessee is striking back with a SCATHING response that squarely puts California in its place (via Twitter). The burn is amazing!
Democrats have such large majorities in California’s state government; they think they’re the masters of the universe. But Tennessee is trolling them at epic proportions, showcasing the incompetence of California politicians for all Americans to see.
The Tennessee legislature issued an official response–and they’re taking California to town! Their response not only explains why California’s travel ban is contrary to our federal system but exposes California as a horribly-run state that has no business telling other states how to govern.
The third paragraph is particularly harsh. “Whereas, California’s attempt to influence public policy in our state is akin to Tennessee expressing its disapproval of California’s exorbitant taxes, spiraling budget deficits, runaway social welfare programs, and rampant illegal immigration …” BOOM. Couldn’t have said it better myself.
California is totally mismanaged. The only reason they continue the appearance of prosperity is that they’re propped up by federal money. Otherwise, California would be in the same shape as Venezuela right now.
That’s why so many residents and businesses are abandoning California for more prosperous states. They’re going to Texas, Arizona, and the South. In fact, Californians are emigrating to several of the states targeted by the travel ban.
But the response gets better. It states that even though California won’t be sending economic development teams to steal Tennessee businesses, Tennessee will still send their teams to recruit business in California. OUCH!
Then it gets into the major question at hand: the relationship between states in a Federal system. The Tennessee resolution states that in the US, every state is to have sovereignty within its borders on issues within its jurisdiction. Since the Constitution gives states all powers not specifically delegated to the Federal government, each state enjoys a significant scope of authority.
States are supposed to respect the legitimate laws passed within one another’s borders. If they start placing travel bans and sanctions on each other, where would we end up? What if the Southern states decided to retaliate against California, soon we’d have open economic warfare between the states; a nation torn apart by factions instead of united.
Tennessee goes on to call on its fellow states to “refrain from imposing a moral judgment on their sister states as California has done to prevent escalating foolishness.” “Fools”–that’s exactly what California’s Democrat politicians are.
Tennessee is the adult in the room. They’re doing their part to ensure America works the way it’s supposed to. Californians will continue to whine and complain like children. They deserve to be taught a lesson–maybe take away all their Federal funding?
