California's illogical embrace of leftist extremism

NY Times:

In Clash Between California and Trump, It’s One America Versus Another

The growing divide between California and President Trump erupted this week, over marijuana, immigration, taxes and the environment.
Since California fell under the sway of far left Democrats it has embraced kookism at a blinding pace.  It is in open rebellion against federal immigration laws.  It has embraced the dude culture of dope smoking.  It has attacked legitimate businesses at an Obama like pace chasing off employers and much of its middle-class.  Its housing policies are a disaster that has led to overpriced homes and resulted in growing homelessness because its policies favor the rich by restricting the supply of housing.

It is also attempting to enact tax breaks for the rich in order to evade the impact of the tax reform act recently passed.  It is running a pension plan that is wildly overpromising and underperforming.  Its coddling of the teachers' unions has led to a deteriorating school system that has gone from being one of the best to one of the worst.

It is not surprising that many middle-class families are leaving for red states and are being replaced by illegal immigrants.  Its infrastructure is crumbling because its spending has been redirected to Democrat vote buying schemes.  Its tax base has become dependent on a few very wealthy tech executives and their companies as other industries flee.
