Skip to comments.Report: 225,000 Californians Flee State Per Year (Pharaoh...let my people go!!!)
Posted on 09/29/2012 5:36:48 AM PDT by Kolath
Due to high taxes, burdensome regulations, lack of public sector reforms, and a lackluster job climate, more people have left California than come to the state since 2005, according to a comprehensive study by the Manhattan Institute released on Tuesday, suggesting California is no longer perceived by most Americans as the land where dreams come true.
In the report, titled The Great California Exodus: A Closer Look," Tom Gray and Robert Scardamalia found Californians have fled to states like Texas, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Idaho, South Carolina, and Georgia because those states have a better economic climate with less taxes and regulation.

And they bring their liberalism with them!
Unfortunately, true. They leave their blue states because of high taxes, crime, corruption, anti-business climate, unemployment, etc., and then, once in their adopted state, they proceed to vote for politicians who promote those very same conditions.
That’s what happens. They destroy other states. Just like the yanks have done to NC
ORIGINALLY, all of the blues from other states converged on those of us in California who were born in here—and are conservative.
It’s the fruits and nuts from other states that turned us INTO a “blue state.”
California is going Detroit, and the decline will pick up speed exponentially, as more people leave.
It’s past the tipping point.
Dear Californians: Our states stink. Do not come here.
Come on down to the Missouri Ozarks. Low taxes, plenty of turkey, deer, fish. You can shoot your gun. Did I mention low taxes ?
There, they'll be taught Economics 101 (like the law of supply and demand and diminishing returns), the US Constitution (simply broken down into parts and read in plain English, without a Marxist professor to "interpret" it for them) and US History by eager teachers who actually love America. Civics would also be a good subject.
Once they show some knowledge about this country and how it works they can graduate and move on to their final destinations.
Hell, maybe we can even send some back as double agents. I'd even contribute to their salaries!
Something really smells in that state......
the census hasn’t caught up to he full effect (only once per ten years).
They won’t be coming to Maryland ,,,, jumping from the fire to the frying pan doesn’t make sense . Marylanders are also in exodus .
Oh, and I forgot to add (but please don’t share this publicly) that for the more stupid and hardcore Leftists...
We’re going to need some kind of Clockwork Orange type adjustment procedures. I’m thinking the “student” strapped to a gurney with something to keep their eyes open, shown pictures of Oprah Winfrey, the gals from the View, Kim Kardashian, Bill Clinton, etc, while they’re given jolts from a taser. Do this until any mention of these “celebrities” cause involuntary trembling.
Only then will they be safe to be released into the general public.
the census hasnt caught up to he full effect (only once per ten years).
A bunch of Democrat weasels got hired by the Democrat controlled Statehouse to fudge the numbers "Big Time"
My guess would is they used the a drive by counting method that they've perfected.....
A pair of them were perched across the street from my old house in Ohio.....
Blue state immigrants to red states should be banned from voting at state and local level until they have lived in the state for 10 years, and only then if they have demonstrated, not merely talked up, conservatism in their personal behavior.
Is Govenor Moonbeam going to make the Manhattan Institute apologize for dissing California in their report?
That’s what happened here in SC and we ended up with Lindsay as a senator as a result. We went from a red state to lavender.
Man are you sure this is what you want?
These Californication people are moving into Texas in droves. Selling their 300K dollar trailer houses, buying up brush country and hill country land, inflating the cost of our property.
This is only inflating property value on property that I own that had a book value of $1200/acre value 5 years ago now to over $8000/acre for BRUSH country.
Worse than that they bring their liberal values and want to recreate their utopia that they so hated in the non-State they just left.
Be very careful who you ask into your paradise.....
Liberals are like cockroaches. They bring their filth and infest red states. They should be required to stay in the mess they created. They love liberalism, they just want someone else to pay for it. Typical.
It’s axiomatic that the best and brightest see the problems evolving and leave for better pastures first.
More and more, Kalifornia will be populated by the dumb and dumbest, leading to worse decisions on legislators, leading to worsening conditions, leading to lowering property values, leading to...
Eventually, the Golden State will be left to the poor and aged who can’t move, barrios and ghettos, and the rich libs in their gated communities.
Very good description of the American people
Just like a virus. It moves in, consumes the host, then goes looking for somewhere else to destroy.
If only California had that in place before we were overrun with the dregs of other states. AND...we were allowed to close the damned borders.
***Come on down to the Missouri Ozarks.***
You sure that is what you want? They foul their nest, then leave to go to a nice clean area, become voters, then try to pass the same laws that fouled their nest where they used to live.
We used to hear a lot of ...”That’s not how we do it in Chicaga!” here.
HEY, YOU GUYS!!!
THIS “MESS THAT THEY CREATED” WAS OUR H O M E BEFORE THEY CAME HERE!!!
UNDERSTAND, please, that we had a nice little state here until the liberals from all of YOUR states swarmed in on us and forced liberal crap down our throats. These people are the “children” of YOUR STATES, and we did NOT ask them to come here!
Then, the liberals moved here and took over S.F. and L.A. The reswwt of our state is just as conservative as it always was.
We can only hope the ones leaving are the liberals that ruined this state in the first place. If the conservatives are left in charge again, maybe we can put it back together.
That’s right - we have been California Conservatives like my husbands family some four generations now. We love our home and hate those whom have come from somewhere else to force liberalism on us!
The commie a$$hat$ better not wreck the moral culture of Texas which somewhat accomodates independence - lower taxes. Bet they wreck things out of their cultural ignorance.
I think many GOP-leaning voters left CA...Many liberals then replaced them...Just my theory...
