Now, however, the Golden State's fastest-growing entity is government and its biggest product is red tape. The first thing that comes to many American minds when you mention California isn't Hollywood or tanned girls on a beach, but Greece. Many progressives in California take that as a compliment since Greeks are ostensibly happier. But as Mr. Kotkin notes, Californians are increasingly pursuing happiness elsewhere.
Nearly four million more people have left the Golden State in the last two decades than have come from other states...

Can’t say I blame anybody for fleeing Mexicalifornistan.
Isn’t the supertrain a way out? Of course, libs, being stupid beyond belief, will never see it that way.
Words that do NOT appear in this article:
Unfortunately, many of the fleeing Californians are the same leftist asshats who voted in the mess there. Alot of those are now in Texas, bringing their "values" and lifestyle with them.
You had to look for it.
“...permanent welfare class.”
40 percent of Californians don’t pay any income tax.
You'd feel more at home in Yankeeland and will fit right in. Go there.
LOL! Now that's funny. And we have all the "evil" drillin going on too.
CA will crash. It’s on an unsustainable trajectory. If the economy turns areound, it may see a brief respite, but the crash is inevitable.
Too many people hold out hope that CA will be positively rebuilt after said crash, but let me point out that the same cast of characters will still be at the table after said crash.
My view is that CA will deteriorate to near 3rd world status and suck the life out of the fed and other US taxpayers.
I do see them hanging from trees in front yards on occasion, but you are right. They shouldn't come here. They'd be MUCH happier somewhere else. :p
It was ever thus.
A little known law in Arizona now requires Californians arriving here to spend 2 months working on a cattle ranch. After 60 days, the owner of the ranch will report to Arizona on the willingness of the immigrant to work & not complain about life, coworkers, cattle or saddle.
If the state receives a negative report, the prospective immigrant is returned to California with an “L” branded on their forehead...
My employer is moving my job out of the state this summer. Because they can.
I can think of a better place than on the forehead.
Great news from here in Massachusetts!
We’ve lost a House seat, due to our declining population!
No need to thank me, but please tip your waitress on the way out. ( /rim shot)
Exactly. They don’t once mention the invasion. Amazing how millions of third worlders have encroached on CA and according to this article has had no effect whatsoever on the ‘exodus’
No different when the new england left for the south. What they find when they move is most of the culture they left can not be rebuilt where they go. No matter how they try.
Now you can see who voted for who in the republican party for pres and you choose your candidate and thats where most of the folks went.
Newt is SC land
This is horrible news. It means all those leftist mAssholes moved elsewhere and are now infecting perhaps a perfectly good Southern state. States like Mass, Md, and Ca are like Marxist tumors, when they metastasize it is going to get ugly...
I hope it all works out for you.Is the move to a red state or blue?
