    Well folks…don't expect to see your DMV fees or your State taxes go down…if point of fact they are more likely to go up! while the " services" provided by the State continue a downward spiral._I'm a California Native and a San Diego Native and I'm just about fed up. _I love this State but it has become so mis-managed and so costly without necessity that I am seriously considering leaving. Believe me…it doesn't make me happy but the nearly daily intrusion fo California into private lives, the loss of Constitutional rights and the never ending desire to be the "benevolent guide" to regulate peoples lives while the cost of Government continually escalates and the things it provides are withdrawn are the individual "sticks" that this Camel is just tired of carrying. _Can you imagine a Business…any business being so short sighted as to lose their lease and be forced to close for what is only "estimated at nine months"? and expecting to return at that uncertain date to "business as usual"? When is enough….. enough?
