    The debate has already been settled by history. Progressive nations, states, and cities collapse. Conservative nations, states, and cities thrive.

    And yet - progressives always attempt to blame conservatives for their own failures. Take Detroit for instance. The ultimate progressive utopia. Over 60 years of a Democrat Mayor, over 60 years of a Democrat City Council. And the most powerful unions in the world. And what did that result in? A city that resembles a 3rd world hell-hole. A city that filed for bankruptcy. And the left desperately tries to pin it on Reagan or Bush (which fails miserably since tens of thousands of other cities all existed under the exact same laws and policies of Reagan and Bush and are thriving).

    Now California is going to provide “free income” (which in itself is hysterical considering we’ve had that for 80 years now - it’s called “welfare”). As the debt in California grows and the inevitable collapse occurs, how many different ways will the left attempt to pin the failure of their left-wing policies on the right?

    California low-income residents will soon receive $500 per month, no-strings-attached income

    No, the Economic Security Project is going to provide "free income" in an experiment to see if it works
