Jamie, you are the stereotypical arrogant Californian that every non-Californian cannot stand
1) Really? You mean to tell me that California grows more food than the rest of the breadbox COMBINED? Rest of COUNTRY combined? Bullpoo
2 & 3) You really can't say that California is better based on these. It has the largest coastline of any state (except Alaska), the 2nd largest area (behind Alaska) and easily the best climate (it has a very wide variety including the rare "Mediterranean" climate). If you want a fair comparison, pull together the same stats for at least 3/4 of the eastern seaboard states. I bet that "state" will win against California 99% of the time (except probably climate).
California is nice, it`s the people who suck. Honestly, the whole country would be better off it separated into multiple states.

jamie76, the problem is, the people who grow all that food and make all that money are outvoted every election by the ever-increasing parasite class. Businesses are fleeing the state like rats from a sinking ship. You have to keep raising tax rates to replace the revenue, which drives even more business out. Pretty soon, you'll have nothing left but illegal aliens and unionized government employees. Your economy is completely unsustainable, and it`s only a matter of time before it crashes.
you truly are a credit to your party...btw you do realize that without CA America would not be America right?
food (yea we grow about 70% of it) money, 5th largest economy in the WORLD population (highest in the country so it seems some people actually like it here) oh and we have San Diego, therefore your argument in invalid.
