Shut down the state

Not enough credit (excuse the pun), was given to Diane McLeod in her effort to follow her dreams [story July 20]. She accomplished her mission all by herself.

Not bad when you consider the state of California is even in worse shape then she is!

It took the entire Democratic Party, with help from some weak Republicans, and the assistance from our great Republican (in name only) governor, to put our great state into bankruptcy.

I believe the Republican Party must force the Democrats to balance the budget, even if it requires shutting down the state.

All wouldn't be so bad, as the basic needs of the people could still be taken care of.
