I feel your pain most certainly. This is why I started a new topic yesterday to hopefully tap into the minds of some of you who love living in California. A very serious question. How do you nice folks here love living in today's California? It is 2017. Not 1978. I think myself, and many people around the United States (or non-Californians) would love to understand why California is still the ultimate place to live even with all the problems there: Graffiti everywhere, massive numbers of illegal immigrants not to mention the many illegal enclave cities like Van Nuys, Reseda, extreme liberal California policies that give criminals rights, illegals rights, small business owners are forced out and Hollywood continually gets a free pass.

How can you live in California and be happy?

It isn't.

More residents of CA move out than residents of other States move in.


The growth is foreign immigration and births.

I understand. Ok. But why can't our Government of the state of California finally drop the hammer after decades of skirting the issues and enforce our laws for once?

This is so sad it is almost unbelievable. Perhaps a revolution is in short order? Unreal.

It would be pointless because California is a democrat state and most of the state government members would be replaced by democrats. Our only option is to kick California out of the country and let them be a testing ground for North Korea's nukes.

Ah, you must speak Russian. And not be here on an expired Russian visa.

That would be interesting and under those conditions the courts have little to no power over it.
In that case whoever's next in the chain of command would be in line for those offices. Using the example that I remember from US government in high school about Wallace, if he had gone ahead with his threats to nullify federal civil rights law and was subsequently arrested for obstruction of justice by federal law enforcement, the Lieutenant Governor of Alabama would have been the governor.

If Trump were to short-circuit this process and appoint his own people he would be inviting impeachment more than anything else, and no doubt his financial and health records would just happen to be leaked right afterwards

Huh huh. So there was a net out migration of 125,000 in 2015. Thats 0.3% of the state population. You act as if that is significant. What about all of the wealthy people moving into the state? Clearly it must be a pretty good place if thousands are moving here. And I can assure you that poor people are not the ones moving from other states to CA.

Another thing to think about:

California did lose 3.5 million people to other states in the 2010-2015 period. It’s sad to see family, friends and co-workers chase their dreams elsewhere. And that’s more than any other state.

The much-heralded Texas, a top destination for departing Californians, had the second-biggest loss of residents in these six years: 2.5 million. Then came New York, 2.4 million, and Florida, 2 million.
