    As long as we don't have to bail out CA again as with their partial collapse of the nation's electrical grid, a stunt that elected the Governator to be followed by Moonbeam. We need to declare CA independent and put the first wall up around it.

    Or you could not send em any money. Everything starts at home. You can stop paying your taxes, or spend your money in a way that reduces your tax to near zero.
    You could move to another state. Texas has their own electrical grid, i think. Heck that state maybe has a self contained economy.

    I know these are all absurd suggestions. There's way more then enough money, land, and unused labor to bail out a state or two. It happens in Europe. There's more then three debtor nations in the E.U. The trouble is the psychological impact. Some people work and some people live on credit and the two are difficult to reconcile.

    Then, too, some people won't stop working and produce more then they can ever use. Technology's just exacerbated this.
    I'm not sure it's a middle ground, but there is a balance point between the time spent working - making money- and the time spent spending it. It's tough to find, and requires that one is attentive to not only income and expense, but time, too. (but that's just me)

    Isn't that why one procurs a wife and kids, to help in the effort to spend it easier?
