Leaving Town: Flood of Businesses, Working People and Retirees Exiting Pro-Socialist States

Craig Huey California, Current Events, Economics 6 Comments

Folks are “getting out of Dodge” in record numbers…

The mass exit from high-tax, pro-socialist states to states with greater freedom is escalating.

States with high taxes, oppressive regulations … and more “nanny state” laws are chasing people out.


Because the socialist states kill jobs, stifle business growth, and choke entrepreneurial opportunities…

Innovation, entrepreneurs and start-up companies are crushed…

Costs of starting and running businesses go way up.

Utility costs in socialist states are often double what they are in other states.

Retirees on fixed incomes can’t handle the high cost of living in socialist states.

High housing costs hurt everyone – especially young people.

Crime and homelessness also are chasing people away.

In New Jersey, 44% of the adult population is looking to flee the state.

In Connecticut, 50% of the residents want to move away.

And in California:

  • 52% of the residents are thinking of leaving the Golden State.
  • For 58% of those thinking of leaving, it’s because of the high taxes.
  • High housing costs are a factor for 71% of those wanting to leave.

California politics also influences those thinking of leaving:

  • 38% of California Democrats are thinking of leaving
  • 55% of Independents are considering moving out
  • 71% of Republicans are thinking of leaving

The percentages are similar based on political philosophy:

  • About 39% of liberals are thinking of leaving
  • 66% of those who are “somewhat conservative” are considering leaving
  • 74% of the “very conservative” are thinking of moving out of state

Those who are thinking of leaving California are about evenly split between African-Americans (58%) and whites (56%).

A few more men (54%) than women (50%) are thinking of leaving California.

  1. You hit the nail on the head but at my age it would be very difficult to relocate. I just have to hope that I have enough money and retirement to last a few more years. The younger people (of which most are) have no sense and think the they are entitled to all of the benefits without any effort on their part. California voters have seen fit to place “communists”in charge of the state and I see no hope of going back. The educational system has been allowed to pervert these young people in a number of ways and I see no way to undo this brainwashing.

    1. You are not too old! My husband andI are 78 and 81 and we just relocated to Texas! We love it! Haven’t missed California for one minute even though we still have kids, grandkids and great grandkids there. It’s a two hour flight so easier than driving the freeways to visit!

    2. So many people are in the same situation. The young people have been indoctrinated by the schools, sadly public and many private schools.

      1. Every child’s Health/Safety/Future is at stake: Until a few seconds ago parents had the right to know where their children are and what they are being taught. Video available at http://www.ourwatchnow.com shows school districts are now being coached to lie to parents on the whereabouts of their children. According to new California laws, parent consent is NOT necessary for prurient, “sex rights” sexxx-ed on high-risk acts k-12: http://www.alliancetoprotectchildren.org. Porn, INaccurate sexxx-ed, ‘sex rights’–NOT Sexual Risk Avoidance –taught throughout curriculums: californiafamily.org/?s=Orange+County+parents+waking +up+to+ dangers. CSE is “Comprehensive” “Sexuality” “Education.” CA’s state-sponsored CSE a dangerous k-12 fraud: ExposeSexEdNow.com. Planned Parenthood is grooming minor girls for Abortions using xxx: dailycaller .com/2019/08/29/sex-ed-title-x-planned-parenthood; forkidsandcountry .org/sexxx-ed-toolkit-to-inform-ca-citizens; stopp.org/article.php?id=15359; growing rates of fatherlessness : http://womenspeakforthemselves.com/wp-content/uploads/ 2014/08/Risk-Compensation-fact-sheet-FINAL.pdf.

        There are grave risks to sexualizing children who, legally, cannot consent to sexual activity in CA before age 18 [ — unless parents fail to push back on AB-329 et al]: increasing victimization by child predators, sex traffickers, and even other children [childpredators.com; endsexualexploitation.org/publichealth/ and /childexploitation/; missingkids.org/netsmartz/videos; youtube.com video, searchwords: California CSE & Trafficking Seminar]; increasing rates of STDs and abortions FOR MINORS, who are more at risk for reproductive injury for life (breast cancer; premature births w/ catastrophic neurological risks for ALL subsequent babies [hushfilm.com; WoundedandAbandoned.com; SMARTwomenshealthcare.com]). CDC: Children who identify as homo/bi/ or trans are 2-3X more at risk for disease, risk-taking behaviors, even rape [cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/65/ss/ss6509a1.htm]; therapyequality.org/fact sheet; csefacts.com.
        In addition, US Attorney Barr has criticized LGBTQ indoctrination programs, such as California’s k-12 WITH NO PARENT OPT OUT, consent — or even KNOWLEDGE!!! — as unconstitutional: thehill.com/homenews/administration/465478-ag-barr-criticizes-lgbt-curriculum-requirements; RescueYourChild.com. SOGI (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) indoctrination is confusing, dangerous psychobabble that increase risks of sexual abuse, school failure, disease, sterility, and long-term family conflicts [takebackmarriage.org]. Telling children they can pick their gender is as fundamentally wrong as telling children they can choose their species. As Candace Owens has stated: we’d have classrooms full of mermaids, aqua-men, wizards, gnomes, fairies & aliens ~ @RealCandace O tweetd 7:56 AM on Sun, 6/2/19

  2. As long as they do not bring the policies that ruined their states into the states that have a better quality of life and lower cost of living. Idaho and Arizona have been greatly affected already by the influx. It isn’t fair to the residents. I really think, those affected should stay in their homes and fight especially if they are young. Unless they are Conservatives, they helped create the problem.
