California is one of the most beautiful states in the nation. It has amazing national parks, great weather, but why are people leaving in droves?
In the last quarter of 2017, there was a net LOSS of over 16,000 people..DESPITE the huge number of people coming into California over the border! To put this in the bigger picture, it was 24% MORE than the second closets numbers from New York.
Many try to claim this is because so many jobs can be done remotely, but it is an oversimplification. Just because you can wrk remotely DOES NOT mean you automatically leave the entire state, usually it means you just stay home and work.
Could the reason for this exodus be something to do with:
- -Highest debt
- -Highest unemployment rate
- -Highest income tax
- -Highest corporate tax
- -Most regulations
- -Most welfare recipients
- -Highest homeless population
Some have argued that OF COURSE we have the highest in all these things “we also have the most fingers!” implying that it is due to being a total of 12% of the nation's population. But these numbers are PER CAPITA!
In a functioning state, a large population should not need the highest corporate tax…Unless the majority of people in the state are not actually working or producing anything…The corporate tax bill and the income tax bill are going to fund the 30% of the nation's welfare recipients who live there…And even that is failing, hence the highest homelessness rate!
It is America's saddest story that all this potential, this human potential and geographic potential is being wasted and squandered.
