California’s gain is Texas’ loss. Yah, that’s what
I said and that’s what I meant. California became the
way it is because of the enormous population growth
over a few short decades. And, some of that stemmed
from the fact that the state recruited businesses
from the Northeast and Midwest. Unfortunately IMO
the depopulation of my home state won’t convince
us to return to simpler, less regulated times.
One of the historic attributes of California is
that it was populated by those with a “live and
let live” attitude. The problems arose when the
the Democrats became the “live and make others
live like you” party.
