Yeah California is doing so great! You do realize that people are fleeing California due to the tax burden?


Actually, no. According to Allied Van Lines, more people are moving in than moving out of California (2015 data). Doesn't seem to have anything to do with the 'tax burden' for those who are moving out though. Moving for a job is almost always the major reason for a move.

But hey! Guess what? People are fleeing the Koch Paradise Kansas!

Study: More People Are Leaving Kansas Than Moving In

Furthermore, overall, California population is none-the-less growing at over 4%, while the Koch Paradise Kansas is only growing at around 2%.

Not only but also, Kansas economy is growing at a whopping 1.2%, compared to the California growth rate of 2.8% and the National average of 2.4%.

According to the Allied Van Lines stats, the last time more people moved out of California than moved in was 2005. This was in the aftermath of the "California Energy Crisis" when the Fossil Fuel industry held Californians ransom in bogus energy crisis scam causing great economic harm to the state at all levels. And it was a scam, California had 45GW generating capacity and peak demand of 28GW - why the blackouts then? Because in 1996 the REPUBLICANS (Governor Pete Wilson: Republican; Legislature: Republican) deregulated the industry and made such a has of it it gave companies like ENRON the loop holes to cut off fuel supplies and hold the states to ransom. People started moving out of the state. Democrat Guy Davis was seen as either incapable or unwilling to stand up to the Energy bullies and a recall election brought in the Governator. Move-outs peaked in 2005.

Sorry, you are correct. Gray Davis was the Governator's predecessor.

Mea Culpa
