Victor Davis Hanson explains the coming death of Liberal Profligacy .

  “The liberal model — borrowing huge sums,rigging interest and the currency to enable state profligacy, turning large swaths of the
population into less productive unionized government workers or dependents on the dole who vote in thanks to political hacks — simply does not work. How could beautiful blue-state California lose almost a millions refugees to arid
Texas? I like Texas, but Dallas had far less of nature to work with than did San Francisco. (It takes a lot of human failure for thousands to
give up verdant California to move to Utah or the Nevada desert.) What we are witnessing is nothing short of surreal: in the manner that
Tijuana was a different universe from San Diego, so too the entire state of California is becoming a different world from its neighbors. Whether one examines its near dead-last schools, its oppressive income and sales taxes, its decaying
roads and infrastructure, its absurd prison system, its dysfunctional state offices (try the DMV), or its priestly public employee caste,
California is becoming Detroit.”
