I've been wondering why people stay in high cost of living areas. It's only logical that they move to lower cost of living areas. Guess where it will happen next?

The state can't pay it's bills. I suppose that is "better".

From the current financial situation
in California the people who moved
are probably much happier elsewhere!

When you enlightened, superior Californians get where you're going, please for the love of Gaia, or whomever you godless libs worship, do not vote. Ever. Keep the red states red, and solvent, and English speaking.

No, actually, it's not, because the people who are left will be the same ones who fled their own countries due to what they perceived as bad conditions that they were not willing to work hard to change. So all that will be left will be people who have no clue what to do with a country or how to make it better or even keep it at its current level. Thus, it will turn into a situation just like the countries those people have left. Doesn't sound like anything good to me!

It always amazes me how Californians think they superior brain wise then the rest of the USA.

The people that are leaving Cal are mainly the middle class.

These are the productive , tax paying ,law abiding citizens.

For every 2 persons that leave, 10 more enter your state, mainly illegals.

The criminals who steal and rip off the social programs, the ones who are causing the state to bankrupt.

They dont' leave unless they are forced.

So in your great California mind, Adios to all the tax payers and productive people.

That makes sense.

Yes, you Californians have superior and progressive minds.

Remember the saying: Don't CALIFORNICATE our state!

In the early 1990's many homeowners sold out and left California, moving to Seattle, Portland, and Pheonix. Given the high real estate prices of California, these migrants pushed up housing costs in their new communities and really CALIFORNICATED things for their new communities. But, it's a free country and I guess you can't entirely blame them...

I work at a welfare office in California. What amazes me is we have people who pack their children into a Greyhound Bus and come out here, where they have no family, no friends, and there are no jobs. They know the economic situation before coming here, and they do it anyway. Then they come in needing welfare because they have no way to support themselves or their family.

So don't complain about Californians moving to other states, at least they can support themselves.

If the Federal Government would have enforced our borders, Claifornia would not be on the verge of bankruptcy. So I guess we can point the finger of blame in quite a few directions.

As always, the people who move out of Kalifornia bring their fascism with them and then they try to force fascist policies on their new hosts, just like a cancer.

It reminds me of my first day working at Pacific High School in San Bernardino. The long time secretary and California native said: "Welcome to California; now LEAVE!"
