To Solve the Debt Problem, Let’s Give California Back to Mexico
WaPoo recently had an interesting, unworkable solution to the problem of the national debt: sell Alaska. Democrats keep producing unworkable solutions to problems that they have created, like the $16 trillion national debt. (LBJ’s War on Poverty – $6 trillion, the Dot.com Bubba Bubble – $3 trillion, the Democrat’s Unaffordable Housing Project – $7 trillion and counting).
The reason the WaPoo idea is unworkable is that it barely touches the national debt. WaPoo’s own estimate for the sale of Alaska is $2.5 trillion, perhaps as much as twice that, but whatever, that is less than the Obama Administration has added to the national debt, and nothing is done to curtail the growth of government. Sale of long-term productive assets to solve Democratic Party incompetence seems not to be a good idea. After the piecemeal sale of all the states, then what? And who would buy Alaska, China?
The only virtue of the WaPoo proposal is that it is much better than the Obama proposal to tax the job producers. A 100% tax on all job producers will finance the current government expenditures for only a matter of days, after which no one will be building factories, buying equipment, or hiring workers. Marxists think that Karl Marx was a great economic thinker, but Marxism has never produced a functional economic system and the current Marxist thinking in the Democratic Party is adding to Marx’s reputation for incompetence and societal destruction, not to mention genocide.
So, what is the solution? Let’s give California back to Mexico. California is becoming increasingly impoverished under the Democratic leadership, and productive individuals are fleeing to other more business-friendly capitalist states. If we retain California, it will be an increasing burden on the rest of the United States of America. As bad as California is, it is better than Mexico, and giving California to Mexico would increase the competence level in both California and Mexico while reducing the burden on the rest of us. Mexico argues that California was stolen, so giving California to Mexico would solve that problem. This is with all due respect with the hard-working, competent Chicanos with whom I have worked and who prefer working in the USA to working in Mexico. Maybe they would then all return to Mexican California.
If giving California to Mexico does not solve our debt crisis, perhaps we can give New York to Puerto Rico, and Chicago to anyone foolish enough to accept it.
