CA rainbow flagA conservative author-scholar has a warning for the United States: America is in danger of turning into a failed state such as California if Democrats gain power and hold onto it for good.   

That is the opinion of Michael Anton, a Hillsdale College researcher who served as a national security official in the Trump administration.

“California has been a one-party state for twenty years or longer and I think it's suffering,” he tells OneNewsNow. “I don't want that fate. I think it's a bad fate for the United States as a whole.”

With a population of approximately 40 million, The Golden State is in no danger of being emptied anytime soon but the exodus of Californians, frustrated with housing costs, crime, and high taxes, has been documented for many years. Those problems have only grown worse in recent months due to the coronavirus shutdowns that devastated small businesses, and many Californians have witnessed crime jump after Prop 47 was passed in 2018. 

The state’s Democratic leaders are now threatening fleeing residents with a “wealth tax” that follows them to another state.

According to Anton, national Democrats want the rest of the nation to mirror California’s radical environmental regulations that harm business.

“I think they would harm the U.S. as a whole if they were adopted nationwide,” he says, “and I'm very concerned about it."

Regarding the future of a one-party system, Anton says it would create a ruling class that makes decisions that favor only those who support it.
