#1 ...and bring their Califiorniasims with them. It's not stopping expansion, it's just metastaism. Spreading the disease elsewhere. Californians don't stop being Californians just because they move away.

#2 Interesting you should say make that point gromky. I was just talking to a friend who lives in a lovely inlet, coastal community in SC. Over the past few years, they've been facing an influx of new retirees from NY and NJ. Quite a WTF moment for the locals. No, they ain't a'changin!

#3 There are a number of californias that are fleeing because of the liberal nonsense and would not bring it with them. If I wasn't trapped with a mortgage i couldn't unload if I tried I'd be packing for Texas already.

#4 One little known aspect of Prop. 13 (which I believe was carried out years later): real estate which was largely made tax-exempt (for all intents & purposes) is now allowed to be bequeathed to descendants of the original owner, along with the tax-exemption. This is setting up a feudal aristocracy.
I live pretty close to the bone, am retired, own a low-price home, bought a new car this year. I still pay more for real estate taxes than I pay in either income or sales taxes (including tax on new car).
