Is it? If you have left California within the last 5 years, please say why.

Correct and fairly liberal one at that.

Yes, liberals like Pelosi and Boxer have done California in, and more importantly it is killing America period.

Last time I checked with had a dem in the WH and dems control the entire country top to bottom.

Dems cannot run a Kool-Aid stand without it going bankrupt.

RealClearPolitics - Liberalism is What is Killing California
We left California in 1993. My wife is a native of San Diego. We left because of ever increasing taxes and fees (it was going to cost us over $300 to renew our auto registration on an 8 yr old Plymouth Voyager, as just one example), increasing gang violence (which had finally come to San Diego, sad to say) such as "drive by shootings", and many other reasons, all having to do with liberalism in state government. It is worse now. We have always said, "We got out just in time".

When we left, in two trucks, towing to vehicles, at every "Welcome Center" in each state, we were told the same thing, "Nine out of ten trucks towing vehicles, like you, are people leaving California"

That was in 1993.

We experienced, Gerald Brown, Young Jerry Brown, Willy Brown, who was like a Nancy Pelosi or a Harry Reid, Gray Davis (Republican, but liberal as they come).

Yes, liberalism has killed California, and it is about to kill the entire U.S.!

This might be true; but, Arnold is far from conservative (he is really a RINO, in my opinion) and besides, Republican governor or not, liberals have a stranglehold on California state government.

Pete Wilson was a Republican too. That didn't stop liberals. Willy Brown was in power in the State House.

Willy Brown was a powerful and ruthless liberal. If Willy Brown didn't like it, it didn't get passed.
