Richest Counties Not in CA

John Seiler:

You might think that some of America’s richest counties would be right here in California. Santa Clara County — Silicon Valley — houses the world’s computer geniuses. Orange County has valuable beach property and high-tech Irvine. San Francisco has a lot of wealth. So does San Diego County. Santa Barbara County’s average home value is more than $1 million.

Nope.

Here’s the list, from Yahoo.com: 1. Falls Church County, Va. 2. Loudon County, Va. 3. Fairfax County, Va. 4. Hunterdon County, N.J. 5. Howard County, Va.

Hunterdon is next to New York City. But the other four on the list — including the top three — are suburbs of Washington, D.C. This is where the congressmen, presidential aids, bureaucrats and lobbyists live and frolick — at your expense.

Many of our problems here in California exist because so much of our wealth is siphoned off from us for the government 3,000 miles away.

In the West, the most wealthy county still is not in California. It’s Los Alamos, N.M., where the government makes nuclear weapons. So, it’s another place that lives off of our tax money — keeping the rest of us poor.

You would think our state politicians would want less of our money to go to D.C. by shrinking government. Nope. This is a liberal Democratic state. So, they want to ship even more of our money to D.C.
