A California Exodus. But Where Are They Going?
Fresno KSEE 24 ^ | December 11, 2012 | By Olga Spilewsky and Conan Nolan, NBC

Posted on 12/20/2012 5:43:13 PM PST by SeekAndFind

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.

In recent years, unemployment in the state has skyrocketed, while the cost of living has increased.

So, where are these Californians going? The Census Bureau calculated that the most popular destination is Texas, with 58,992 residents relocating there along with a number of California companies.

Arizona was next on the list, with 49,635 people moving, then Nevada, Washington, and Oregon.

Although in smaller numbers, others are still relocating to the Golden State. Texans make up the largest number of new California residents with 37,387 people, according to the report. That is followed by people from Washington (36,481), Nevada (36,159), Arizona (35,650), and New York (25,269).

There is much more to this story from NBC News and NBC Los Angeles, to read about it CLICK HERE.

Watch for Texas to turn blue.

The libs are fleeing the filth they dumped in their own bed in California - but they’re not learning anything.

They’re just taking their big government, high tax philosophy to a new location.

And just like rodents, a good number of them carry the disease of liberalism. TX will turn blue at a quicker rate. That’s what libs do, destroy their state and move to the next red one..

Classic example of crapping in your own nest to the point they can't tolerate the stench. Move on and start the process all over again ... never ending cycle for those of a liberal persuasion.

I'm a former Californian who moved to AZ twenty years ago. I know many others like me, and they're all conservative too.

But I am a little worried about this new exodus. Arizona went for Romney 55% to Obama's 43%. I don't want to see those percentages turn blue.

NOTE TO ALL — FR’s HQ is California, and Jim & John are there.

Not ALL Californians are liberal. In fact, mostly the lib part is from the water to about 12 miles inland, and then it’s almost Oklahoma.

Oregon used to have a big billboard on the highway from California, saying “Don’t Californicate Oregon!”

(Unfortunately, that happened despite the billboard...)

One of the things I point out to others here in California, is that San Francisco used to be Republican. Then it got invaded by outsiders in the 1960's who brought liberal beliefs from elsewhere. I was born and raised in San Francisco, very few natives remain. SF had an unbroken line of Republican mayors almost from the 1906 earthquake to the mid-1960's. used to be decent, now it's crap. The coastal cities got taken over by libs. One daughter relocated to Texas, also born in SF, she's not a lib.

MY sig. other and I look forward to becoming Arizonans. I promise you we are NOT liberals, and we look forward to being surrounded by more conservative people than here in California. Both of us are originally from other states: He from Lousiana and me from Michigan.

Neither of us is going to attempt to turn Arizona into a copy of California.

Thanks for your good wishes, and I agree with you.

I lived in Fort Collins, Colorado for a couple of years, ending in 1995. Everybody bragged about the Wild West legacy of self-reliance and ruggedness, but I saw very little of that along the Front Range.

Yes, a lot of Coloradans hated newcomers, Texans included. They had a joke that Oklahoma was the only trailer park to become a state.

Fort Collins is a college town. They had a LOT of problems with drugs, alcohol, teen pregnancy, welfare mooching, etc. A lot of the younger crowd sat around in coffee shops and farmed attitudes.

Some of them looked down on me (friends of a younger BF) because I was in the straight world and had a regular job, but I also noticed that they were always up for bumming a meal or $$ or a place to crash off me.

They usually didn't have enough money for their own rent or food, but always had enough for anothe tattoo, piercing, or dose of recreational drugs.

In short, I was not all that impressed. Ut was an expensive place to live, too.

Those sound like interesting places to visit! Thank you! We're probably going to be moving to Kingman as soon as we have saved up enough $$ for car repairs and moving expenses.

Where we are now is high desert (Lancaster). Old-timers I've talked to tell me this used to be a nice place to live before they offered incentives for lowlifes and gangbangers to move up here from South Central L.A. I have had a couple of run-ins with the diversity myself. Will be very glad to get out of here!

My family of four left the Central Valley two years ago and we are loving Colorado. We bought along two red votes and hope to take CO out of the Dem column for the next election. Many of those fleeing California are, like us, conservative producers fed up with high taxes, ineffectual liberal government, and the flood of immigrants.

I live in Ca. I know 4 different families leaving Ca.
Three are liberals, one is a conservative.
They are all moving to red states. (Utah and Idaho)
I asked each group if they were going to change the way they vote~~~they all said NO!
Sadly they will bring their liberal ways with them~

Arizona is an Open Carry State, you can also get a CCW, certain areas of Tucson will remind you of what you plan on leaving.

By all means see the Davis-Monthan Aircraft bone yard, The Pima Air Museum, and the DESERT Museum in Tucson.

For my part, the prettiest place in the world is Cave Creek Canyon in the Chiricahuas -- above Portal, AZ.

If you're into birding, the area is also said to be one of the most prolific sites in the U.S.

For a few months in 1972 or 1973, I worked for a construction company building subdivisions in Arvada.

I was shocked to see “Don't Californicate Colorado” bumper-stickers. At the time, California was still the "Promised Land". I had run out of money before I got to CA, so I stopped to make some money. ( I never made it to the left coast 'cause i figgered that there was something to the ads :"to get a good job, get a good education", so i went back to school.

My recollections of Denver and environs are that it was beautiful. Driving into the Rockies made me understand the meaning of the word ‘majestic’.

I'm sad that colorado got californicated.

“Classic example of crapping in your own nest to the point they can’t tolerate the stench. Move on and start the process all over again ... never ending cycle for those of a liberal persuasion. “

But wait a minute! I thought only the “good Conservative Californians” were moving to Texas! I’ve lived here in California for 72 years and have yet to “crap in my own nest” as you so crudely put it. Then I look at the stats in the article. Some 58,000 “Californians” moved to Texas, while 37,000 “Texans” moved here. So what gives? Are there really “Texans” who are willing to live “shit kicker heaven” and move to “the land of fruits and nuts!” Inquiring minds want to know !

legislative vote.

We won’t mention the 300 M that Michael Bloomberg gave to Angus King to defeat Steve Smith.. and we had Somali’s voting in the Canadian Maritimes?

“One of the things I point out to others here in California, is that San Francisco used to be Republican.”

Good for you to point this out! I was born in SF in 1940, and grew up in the East Bay. There was not a better place on this planet to live then. Of the four nationally recognized technical universities, three were here (Cal, Caltech, and Stanford). WWII “helped a bunch.” Blacks came here from the South to work in the defense industry (Kaiser was building ships at the rate of one every 30 days in Richmond). But after the war, the didn’t go “home.” They stayed here and became a chronically unemployed underclass that exists to this day. The only thing that they have been singularly successful in doing is procreating. More recently, the gays “discovered” SF, and now they run the place because they are “politically active” and have gotten themselves elected at all levels of government. How’s a gay female Chief of Police grab you!
Oakland has gone the same way. The last white GOP Mayor in Oakland left office in the mid-1970’s, and with the exception of Jerry the Fairy’s term, all of the rest of them have been minorities (black with one Asian nut case).
But, how is this any different that Detroit, Baltimore, D.C., etc. All run by Rats, and those RATS are mostly Black. Show me a Black RAT-run city of any size that’s prospering. I don’t think you can.

Nonsense! I used to have to do business in The People’s Republic of Bolder a lot earlier than the 90’s. Berkeley has nothing on Boulder when to comes to the “practice of Marxism.” Boulder has it down pat! I will wager that Colorado is just like California in that the rural areas are still nice places to live and where conservative values prevail. All states problems stem from their “major cities.”

Not much political correctness to shed. Where we are there is a lot of "diversity" who were given various incentives to move up here. The crime rate has gone way up. Old-timers have told me how nice it was to live up in the high desert before the Section 8 types swarmed up here (a lot of whom just seem to get off on being rude to white people just because they can). To hell with them, I say!
