    Want to hear something truly sickening? One of the reasons for California's high fuel prices are the huge amount of state taxes tacked on to every gallon sold. Most people know that already
    A couple of years ago there was a chance for the people of California to vote on rolling back a lot of that tax and thus lowering fuel prices. I mean, they got to vote on it. Should be simple, no? Easy choice. Everybody I know was all in favor of it.
    Guess what? The citizens of California voted against the reduction in gas taxes. The southern part of the state voted overwhelmingly to keep the taxes in place. The northern part of the state voted for the reduction but we didn't have enough voted to carry it.
    Sometimes it's really embarrassing to be from California.

    That sounds like Illinois. The entire state is red except Chicago which is who elects their “leaders”.

    Some people for whatever reason think paying higher taxes on anything is better..for life of me I can’t figure that out other than some folks think they’ll get a lot in return but that hardly off ever is the case.

    So....what is the reasoning for the SoCal residents to keep it in place? There has to be a reason/benefit behind that. It wouldn't make any sense otherwise.

    My reason to stay is the weather, you have the ocean, mountains, deserts all around. All of my family born and raised here, and lastly, house will be paid off about a 1 1/2 years.
