Which, in most cases, means “moving to Texas.”
Just as long as they leave their big-government, high-taxes, socialist utopia ideologies that bankrupted their home state behind.
Via NBC Los Angeles:
About 100,000 more people moved away from California in 2011 than relocated to the Golden State, according to the latest report from the U.S. Census Bureau.
The trend can be explained, in part, in monetary terms. Even in an economic boom, the cost of living in California has increased, prompting people to move out, and, in recent years, unemployment in the state has skyrocketed.
So, where are these former Californians going?
The Census Bureau calculates that the most popular destination is Texas (58,992), a state that is luring California companies. That’s followed by Arizona (49,635), Nevada (40,114), Washington (38,421) and Oregon (34,214).
This is what happens when you try to steal more than half of the income of the dwindling number of makers (to give to the takers). They leave. Ironically (and predictably), when California passed Prop. 30 to legalize the rape of it’s wealthiest citizens by jacking up their tax rate to nearly 52%, the state’s revenue actually fell by 10.8% last month. A shortfall of $806 million.
Let it burn to the ground, I say.
