Keep in mind a lot of us are leaving CA because we don’t agree with its shitty politics in the first place. We’ve seen first hand what unchecked liberal policy will do to a beautiful place and it’s enraging.

CA isn’t all hippy liberals….a significant portion of us are normal people who are berated daily by entrenched vocal forces present in every public policy and resource for not conforming to the standards of progressive thought. We are generally successful, conservative or classic democrat families who just want a better life for our kids. We have a unique and distinct understanding of the toll that bad political leadership and decisions take on our cost and quality of living and there’s few people among us who would choose to repeat that.

I certainly can’t speak for everyone when I say the above, but my family made an active decision a couple of years ago to begin relocating out of state because of the insanity that was obviously coming, and after a year of active prep and planning, our last day in CA is next Wednesday.
