Californians, for their part, are voting with their feet – leaving the Golden State en masse , with one local report observing that more people have left the state over the last seven years than have migrated to it. A shrinking population means a diminishing tax base, and with California currently struggling to offset a $50 billion budget deficit amidst the coronavirus pandemic, perhaps this moment provides an opportunity for Democrat leaders in Sacramento to reevaluate their obsession with soaking “the rich,” and in its place pursue policies that are more welcoming to high earners?

From rolling energy blackouts induced by green-energy boondoggles to streets littered with human waste and needles because of lawless homeless encampments... to social justice no-bail policies that release prolific offenders back into communities to reoffend... to artificially inflated costs of living because of inept intervention into labor and housing markets... California has unintentionally provided the rest of America with a valuable lesson of what awaits other states when unhinged progressive politicians take over. And we can’t forget the taxes – the onerous, through-the-roof taxes that are designed to penalize residents who have the nerve of attaining financial success.
