America’s Way Forward By Allen West for CNS News
GNN Note – Please don’t liberalize my Tennessee – remember, when you cross the border into Tennessee, check your leftist politics and don’t bring the cesspool you just escaped.
Back in June of 2019, there was an article in The Economist that was titled “Texafornia.” I think you can understand from the title the focus of the piece.

The premise was basically an analysis between what the author called the two mega states, California and Texas, and America’s way forward. His assertion was that our country would follow one of the two paths, California or Texas. And when one does a careful examination of the two States, the two paths are not close; they are indeed quite distinct.
This past week should provide any objective observer the opportunity to assess the two ways forward our America could take.
Consider that last week it was revealed that California has the Nation’s highest state income tax rate, and a 20% poverty rate. One in five Californians live in poverty, albeit that the Golden State has the highest state income tax. So often the progressive socialist left tells us that higher taxes are necessary on the so-called top wage earners. They tell us that is the only way to end income inequality.
The left attempts to make us believe that wealth redistribution is the way forward to economic equality, when all it does is expand economic disparity. California is a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants, providing them a host of free benefits, to include healthcare, paid for by law abiding, legal, California taxpayers, citizens. All of this despair is happening with the highest state income tax rate in our Country.
We should not be amazed, since during the Obama administration when the same rhetoric about “spreading the wealth” by way of higher taxes, increased regulations worked to produced higher levels of unemployment, increased poverty, and higher food stamp recipients.
