The money would just fund all those hippie drug farms and gay parades. Go California!

But seriously folks...

I predict that hippie drug farms and gay pride parades are what's going to bring California's economy out of the gutter. Go Cali!

I highly doubt it will surpass California in population. Both have somewhat similar population growth rates, and the rates would have to drastically change in order for that to happen. Probably a good thing though, I highly doubt most people in Texas really want to add another 13 or so million people to their state.

No it wont happen.

Texas has a much better economy and is cheaper, but California is a much more desirable place to live. People will still end up moving there regardless.

I would think that COL and economy make a place desirable.

It can, but what also makes a place desirable is having a beach, mountains, and the desert close by with a warm/mild climate year round.

I'm quite thankful so many people love CA and TX. Means fewer will move here.(WA)

That greatly enhances my quality of life. LOL

I love WA. You never know, it might be one of the fasted growing states soon and Seattle is doing pretty well.

Yeah, but there are several other states in this country that have those, not in close proximity, yet they are still considered desirable.

I think it will beat California in population but it's going to take a few decades though.
