California has had a bad year. The liberal blue state has struggled with numerous crises over the course of 2020.
Their governor slammed residents with heavy COVID restrictions. Riots spread across blue cities (and suburban neighborhoods).
And now, massive wildfires are scorching millions of acres. The smoke has covered regions in an eerie orange fog.
On top of all that, residents have been putting up with out-of-control taxes and a homeless crisis.
It’s no wonder they’re reporting a very shocking new statistic:
California has become a warming, burning, epidemic-challenged and expensive state, with many who live in sophisticated cities, idyllic oceanfront towns and windblown mountain communities thinking hard about the viability of a place many have called home forever. For the first time in a decade, more people left California last year for other states than arrived.
Thanks to the blue state’s many problems, for the first time in ten years, more people are leaving California than coming.
Many problems have been plaguing California. Conservative pundits have pointed out that much of it is the result of the Democrat-majority in the state government.
The rolling blackouts are a direct result of their left-wing “green” energy policy. The USDOE had to step in, on California’s request, to share the burden.
That’s only the start of the many problems facing residents of CA. They get to enjoy the highest costs for gasoline and other necessities.
Higher taxes and rents are the norm in most California cities.
Then there is the homeless crisis that is turning once-beautiful cities into literal wastelands.
But despite the mounting problems, their leadership refuses to acknowledge their role in all of it.
While it’s reasonable to think that some residents are fleeing, we have to ask some obvious questions.
Those leaving, are you responsible for CA’s current mess? Did you vote Democrat for years, only to cut and run when things got bad?
And do you intend to keep voting Democrat, even in the new state you reach? Do you think the same thing won’t happen in Nevada, Arizona, Texas, and beyond?
What about the people who can’t leave? Most folks just can’t pack up and move to an entirely new state.
Will those that stick around bother to realize why this is happening in CA? Will you begin to rethink who you keep putting into office?
- California is suffering a mass exodus as more people leave than enter.
- Many point to numerous problems, including lockdowns, riots, and wildfires.
- The Democratic-majority in the state government appears unwilling to acknowledge their role in the crises.
