More people are leaving California than ever before

More people are leaving California than arriving as the state reels from devastating wildfires that only worsen by the year, power outages, poor air quality, and a burgeoning cost of living.

The California dream may be fading as the idyllic oceanfront state sees warming temperatures, burning blazes, challenges in controlling the coronavirus pandemic, and sky-high real estate prices.

Monica Gupta Mehta and her husband said that this year’s furious fires that darkened the skies over their Palo Alto home made them consider moving their family elsewhere.

'For the first time in 20-something years, the thought crossed our minds: Do we really want to live here?' Mehta said to the Washington Post.

'Yesterday felt so apocalyptic. People are really starting to reconsider whether California has enough to offer them,' Mehta added.

Between 2007 and 2016, some 5 million residents moved to California and 6 million people moved out to other states, according to KSBW.  

A poll conducted late 2019 by the University of California at Berkeley found more than half of California voters have given 'serious' or 'some' consideration to leaving due to the high cost of housing, heavy taxation, or political culture.

According to Census data in 2018 more than 86,000 people left California for Texas, nearly 70,000 left for Arizona and about 55,000 left for Washington, according to NBC.

A couple years ago the Democrat leaders in California were preaching  how we had to follow in their footsteps, and now everyone is considering leaving their state. Recently they even mandated that all cars run on electricity, while the state is having rolling blackouts. It's another broken plan courtesy of their global warming scam.

I find it amazing that you have so much hatred for fellow citizens of your own country.
