THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

Slavery is legalized in California

Californians work 230 days out of the year to support the Marxist Big Brother State.

The Road to Serfdom
Slavery is legal in California  -  you are forced to work for the Marxist Big Brother State for 230 days out of 365 each year.

Call yourself a slave or a serf.  There is little difference.

No matter what name you are called by, most of the fruits of your labor are taken away by force to support your Marxist Overlords in Government.  Your position in society is getting worse by the year.  The Overlords are always thinking of new ways to extract money from you and new ways to spend it so they can buy their way to power.

Californians will work until Aug. 18 this year – 230 days – to pay for the spending and regulations of federal, state and local government,  reports the Americans for Tax Reform Foundation, a Washington D.C. advocate for cutting government.

But that’s good news. This “event,” which the group calls Cost of Government Day is nine days sooner for Californians than in 2010 reports the Orange County Register.

The national Cost of Government Day is Aug. 12, two days sooner than in 2010.  The day ranges from July 19 in Mississippi to Sept. 10 in Connecticut.  California ranks 5th along with Minnesota, Washington and Wisconsin.

The foundation defines Cost of Government Day as “the date on which the average American worker has earned enough gross income to pay off his or her share of the spending and regulatory burden imposed by government at the federal, state and local levels.”

This report is broader than the Tax Freedom Day by the Tax Foundation, which looks only at federal, state and local taxes. This year, Tax Freedom Day was April 12 nationally and April 16 in California.

California’s cost of government dropped this year because of the expiration of the temporary hike in income tax on Jan. 1 and sales tax and vehicle license fees June 30.

Federal spending is the biggest chunk, accounting for 153 days for the average American worker, while  state and local spending and regulations add 71 days.

This year’s earlier Cost of Government Day “is likely temporary,” the report says. “The implementation of the Dodd-Frank financial regulatory overhaul, coupled with …the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, portend far later COGDs in the future.”

But the group sees a possible change as some local and state governments and Congress scrutinize public spending. “The debate over the country’s debt has precipitated remarkable scrutiny of government spending,” the report says.

The Marxist overlords in California are never satisfied with the labor of their Serfs.
Every word out of their mouths is "work harder for the state, we need more money" or
the classic "Think of the children."
