Who Pays For Your Bad Choices?

Let's look at responsibility!

Last week it was revealed that the state of California had paid out more than $25,000,000 in the last three fiscal years to settle sexual harassment-related cases. Most of these settlements were funded with taxpayer dollars. I don't know about you but I don't think that anyone would step in and pay out money to cover something that I had done that was wrong! I'd like to know why the public entity expects me to pay for the wrongs and indiscretions that others have committed!

“This is the most disgusting use of taxpayer dollars we've ever seen,” said Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. “There is no way taxpayers should be on the hook for this.”

Most of us were raised to be responsible and to take care of our own mistakes and the consequences that result from making bad choices. Why should taxpayers pay for the sexual indiscretions and offenses? Anyone committing workplace misconduct should own their own bad behavior and suffer the consequences, not the taxpayer. Should I even have had to make that statement? NO.

For now, according to state law, a public entity is required to defend an employee in a civil case over actions taken within the scope of his or her employment. But the public entity also may refuse to provide for the individual's defense if the actions were not within the scope of the job, or he or she acted – or failed to act – because of fraud, corruption or actual malice.

This state mandates sexual harassment training, yet chooses to allow its tax base to pay for others transgressions. Clearly, these actions are not within the scope of the job.

A spokeswoman for the Attorney General's Office noted that, if there is a conflict between the agency and the individual defendant named in a suit, the AG's Office usually will represent the agency.

When will this state's legislators begin to stand for truth? When will they accept responsibility for their own actions? When will they realize that we are not their servants; Rather, they work for us? I dare say, never.

Enough! We can educate. We can protest. We can let them know what we think. We can't change their hearts. Their hearts are turned against the very citizens that they serve. It is time; I dare say, it is passed time, for us to say good bye to these men and women who have such contempt for us.

I say California is a failed state and it's time to start a new one! I say California is failed morally, fiscally and has become tyrannical. How about you? Right now, we have the Constitution on our side through Article IV Section 3. Right now we have 21 counties, and more trying to join our effort to separate from California. We have the momentum and dedication to liberty from tens of thousands of supporters.

Are you on board for the State of Jefferson? Join us now to become part of history in the making. Join the effort to bring liberty and freedom to your kids and grand kids. Join in the battle that will mark the end of tyranny for those of us in the northern third of the state. We can be the leaders that set the tone for others to make a stand for liberty.

You have the chance to make a difference. You will be that difference. You will be the one who will put us over the finish line. We can't do this without you. So join with us. Make it happen!
