The Dallas Business Journal reported in May "reported that Texas was leading the nation in private sector job growth" and "that Texas's financial sector contained 622,900 jobs last month, which was 47,200 more than the corresponding figure for April 2001." No surprise that the most conservative state in the union is seeing job growth while the most liberal state in the union (California) continues to wallow in $10 billion in debt, inflation, and the second highest unemployment of all 50 states with 11.9%. This begs the question - what is with the liberals and their stubbornness to keep pushing failed policies (which are all some form of Communism/Socialism/Marxism)? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results each time. Why won't the left either acknowledge that conservative policies are exponentially more effective or, at the very least, pitch a new idea? Punishing those who are successful by taking half of what they earned through high taxes and rewarding those who are not successful by handing them what was confiscated from others through taxes has failed world wide for over 100 years now.
