    Texas has been run by conservatives for a long time. California has been run by liberals for a long time. Before you get your panties in a wad, Arnold Schwartzenegger is RINO.

    Not true. Apparently, you don't live in Texas or California. Texas is currently facing a budget deficit of $18 billion, the same as California.

    The Democrat Legislature here just reduced funding to the public schools and increased the tuition to the State universities for the second time in a few months. Their increase in regulation and increase in business tax have driven over a half a trillion in revenue out of the State. Yet they continue to spend between 10 and 15 billion a year just on welfare benefits to illegal aliens. These are the same Democrats that when they were supposed to be working on a State budget were trying to ban kiddies Mylar balloons. Now their bright idea to raise money is to legalize marijuana. Their reasoning is that it will reduce drug use. They will tax it at State outlets at $50.00 an ounce and increase criminal penalties for possession under the age of 21 and for possession without the State tax stamp. Many mistakenly think it will make for less crime. The State outlet employees will have to have Police background investigations. The gangs and drug cartels are not going to just quit. It will increase violence against the State outlets and those that work there. Last week in Los Angeles two pot store store workers at two different locations were murdered. Money and marijuana were taken. Consider this. The Democrats in Sacramento want to get into the drug dealing business. I predict massive failure.

    Because we don't bend over backward here in Texas to give illegal immigrants all the same rights and protections that citizens have.

    If you want to enjoy the privileges of being a citizen of the United States then immigrate here legally like millions of other people have for decades.

    California has higher taxes so the government and businesses there are all bankrupt when you include the costs of illegals. Texas has low taxes so the illegals there are forced to pull their own weight and businesses have a lot more money to throw around, as a result its economy is still remarkable.

    We have more room and more jobs than California as well as a much cheaper cost of living which produces a natural tolerance and easier coexistence for Texans and illegal immigrants.

    It's more than illegal immigration that's ruined this state.

    The douche in the governor's office ruined the rest. Taxation alone has completely ruined every business here.

    Texas just takes very good care of itself.

    Because Texas knows what they're doing; it's a red state.

    immigration has not much affected California as California does not reside on the Mexican border.
