This is fascinating on a number of levels.
First, and foremost, is how many people have fled the People’s Republic, and how much income they took with them. Those of us behind enemy lines know only too well why they left. The joke among conservatives here is that there should be a sign at the stateline informing those entering California that they are now leaving the American sector.
But second is support for my longheld (and oft-repeated) contention that (even now) a substantial proportion of California liberals are in fact transplants from the Northeast and Illinois (rather than natives from back when) looking for a new host.
Too late, comrades, the first N waves of liberals from those states have already pretty much wrecked the state already. You’ll have to work your magic on some other, as yet untrashed state, but the number of candidates is dwindling. The vexing thing is that states once infected with liberalism never seem to recover and return to sanity, even after the disease vectors move on to a new victim.
