Why can't we be more like California?

Seriously guys…California is so cool. I’m tempted to move there because they really seem to CARE—about the world, the environment, plants and animals. They do stuff. They GET IT DONE. This week alone they have passed legislation to protect and rescue abandoned pets left behind by their owners to die in foreclosed properties, AND they have announced plans to build two large solar plants, which, at only 12.5 square miles, will produce enough solar powered electricity to power 800 Walmart stores!!

Clearly, they appear to be the nation’s leaders in effective policy making and energy solutions. From everything I’ve read, it’s the federal government that hinders them the most. How far would California go if they were free? If California seceded, I’d move there. Really, they’re so cool. I wish we could be more like them.
