If people there would buy more then more jobs would be available, causing even more spending in that circular system.

People that fear their government need liquid assets.... so they can
hide them and carry them with them when they need to.


Do people trust the Democrats and Obama?


People spend and invest when they're comfortable that their own
government isn't trying to steal from them.

California is among the highest taxed States.
And yet it's still supporting red state moochers.

The libertarian theft of "collectivising costs and privatizing profits" was the flaw in the Articles of Confederation.

Madison stopped the libertarian theft with Art. I Sec. 8 which provides for tax hikes at the federal level.

Care to try again?

Liberals/Socialists hand out tax dollars to force everyone to pay for
losses and failed policies.

Libertarians don't believe the constitution allows The Feds to hand out
Federal tax dollars to the States and the people, as free money.

It limits taxes and what they can spend tax dollars on.

You are wrong.

Where does Art. I, Sec. 8 limit taxes to some %?

We don't live under the Articles of Confederation we live under the
Liberal interpretations of the constitution.

If the Libertarians interpreted this constitution then there wouldn't be
all those subsidized businesses and the bail outs and the people getting
subsidies rather than getting jobs.

States wouldn't get Federal Tax dollars they'd be taxing their own
people instead of the Feds taxing states to economic death....

your url says nothing about california, however,

california ranks #35 in poverty: nice map if you want to see where most of the real poverty is, you guessed it, almost all deep red: and of course california embraced obamacare, and a higher minimum wage, as well as unions

This article is a list of the 50 United States of America (U.S.) states, also including the District of Columbia, ordered by poverty rate. 2014 statistics are not identical to official poverty rates because they include children not counted in the official numbers (see Revised Tables link below). Supplemental Poverty Measure takes into account differences in cost of living between states (i.e. housing costs appreciably higher/lower than the national average) as well as taxes and the value of government assistance programs. All data are from the United States Census Bureau.
