Parts of Affluent California Look Like the Third-World due to Democrats’ Policies (VIDEO)

Parts of Affluent California Look Like the Third-World

California is the largest state in the Union (though they don’t seem to like it much) and today’s news is about a very disturbing video which literally shows thousands of shacks and tents built ad-hoc  along the Santa Ana River Trail in Orange County, where homeless people are living their daily lives. Mind you, this is an upscale area in the former Golden State, which now brags with harboring more than 25% of US’ homeless population, with most of them sleeping under bridges, or tucked away in parks, fields, parking places and even on the streets.

And if you’re wondering why “the world’s 6th largest economy” (that’s California) is also competing with third world countries, well, this is the predictable effect of left wing (read Democrats) policies have had over the past 30-40 years on the West Coast state.

The New York Times reports:

More than one-quarter of the total homeless population nationwide lives in California, roughly 114,000. The vast majority are “unsheltered” — a more bureaucratic term to describe the thousands living on the streets, under freeways and tucked into grassy fields and parks in cities all around the state.​

The largest and bluest state in the union also has the nation’s highest poverty rate. As the video became viral, people took on social media to express their shock and described how dramatically the area depicted in the video has changed over the past few years.

Believe me, this video will spoil your day:

Why is this happening? The answer is simple: socialism, nanny state, welfare mindset. The Democrats prefer to keep giving a man a fish every day – as it keeps them employed, and the poor man dependent. Mass (illegal) immigration hasn’t exactly helped either. Both parties love cheap labor, which has not only caused real estate prices to soar, but the quality of life has suffered as well.
