    Good now maybe San Francisco can free up some apartments to get these people some shelter. I wonder what other people in the world think knowing this is how San Francisco treats the less fortunate...

    I was just talking with a colleague who is in town this week but works remotely from North Dakota of all places. She moved there with her husband after becoming pregnant.

    His family is there so it was a natural choice, but cost of living, taxes, easier to raise a family (she was pregnant), cleanliness, crime, etc.

    I don’t think 20 something’s mind living in squalor, but at a certain point it’s just too much.

    You should feel blessed. I know one reason behind the exodus. Tech companies are opening satellites in LA. Look up Silicon Beach (Google). Culver City just got Amazon and Apple. I've met tons of people that moved from San Fran to LA but still work for the same company. I think its a bit more affordable here. And lets face it, people would rather be by the beach.. There are other reasons too, but that is one of them.

    Productive people are fleeing the progressive hell.

    https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/02/no_author/the-great-california-exodus/

    Anyone who is yet to realize that leftism is attempting to destroy America as we know it should examine how the far left has unabashedly warped the state of California. America is on the verge of a civil war. It will not be fought along geographical lines, but cultural ones. The same treacherous ideology that is consuming the bulk of Europe has been at play in the Golden State for far too long. Giant technology companies that lined the deep pockets of California are poised to abandon it, as are many of the small businesses, which have been struggling most to survive under the massive burden of obscene taxation, regulation, and the litigious nature of the California courts. The “white flight” that happened in the metropolitan areas of England and throughout Europe are now in full swing in California. When both middle class and affluent citizens have completed their mass exodus from California toward the freedoms of the more conservative states, there will be virtually nobody left to pay for the governmental benefits of California’s nanny state, of which a significant portion of the state’s residents live on.

    Paul Chabot, a two-time congressional candidate in California was defeated by Pete Aguilar in November of 2016. Chabot inflamed liberal ire after releasing “Terrorist Hunting Permits” as part of his campaign literature. After his loss, Chabot decided to pursue his dream of serving the public in another way, by launching Conservative Move. It is an organization specializing in helping Americans to relocate from leftist states, like California, to states where their rights are respected, their beliefs are not mocked, and the populace is not threatened by American patriotism. Chabot launched Conservative Move after relocating his own family to Texas, in the beginning of 2017. The former congressional hopeful said that he wanted to help decent families to find new opportunities and offer them the guidance that he would have appreciated during his own exodus from California.

    “We want to be able to express to people that these areas that are conservative have safer streets, better schools, better-paying jobs, lower taxes,” Chabot said when describing what Conservative Move does and why. “We hope that this doesn’t become divisive, but it becomes a bridge that brings more and more people into this camp that loves faith, freedom, family, God, country and apple pie.”

    An article heralding the launch of Conservative Move was tattered with vile commentary from California Democrats and communists, which serves as a commentary about the ongoing struggle to preserve what remains of America’s soul. Leftist Californians, who keep voting for ‘progressive’ politicians and ballot measures to usurp their own rights, mocked Chabot and the lot of conservative states which have become popular amongst those fleeing California’s unholy bastion of progressivism. The leftist detractors berated “cesspools in rural areas”, as if their filth and crime-ridden cities were providing a better quality of life than mainstream America. They even reminisced in the joy which comes only from paying higher taxes, because doing so “supports the community”.

    California’s infrastructure is in the same dire straights as its economy infamously is, thanks to decades of leftist rule. California’s ‘progressive’ virtue signalers, who love to wag their morally-superior fingers in the faces of conservatives, used incredibly disparaging language when describing those who live in conservative states. They jealously showed a particular disgust toward those who reside in nearly crime-free rural areas, in wholly disrespecting the very God-fearing people who feed the world. Within their leftist system of ‘morality’, it is now socially unacceptable to refer to a man in a dress as a man because he might “identify” as a woman, but it is not in the least bit inappropriate to deem all rural Americans as “hillbillies”. Faithfulness, hard work, and community standards are all indications of perversion to leftists, but genuine mental illness and sexual perversion are their virtues. Deciphering how the leftist mind works and how ‘progressives’ justify their own moral hypocrisies can only steer one to the conclusion of mental illness in the form of a mass hysteria.

    From 1990 to at least 2007, approximately 3.4 million California residents vacated to other states, according to Real Clear Politics. This is the time period when California’s teetering on the brink, both culturally and economically, hit a fevered pace. If its spending had grown proportionally in relation to both inflation and population fluctuations during this time period, then California taxpayers would not have a $65 billion bill coming due. Had the leftist politicians, who were in full control of the state’s government spent within their means, California’s fiscal health would resemble that of nearby Oregon.

    The problem is they carry their self-destructive liberalism and all its problems with them to their new homes. Few learn to reject the policies and attitudes that created the mess in the first place.

    I will repeat my axiom:

    Liberalism is a parasite that seeks to destroy its host.

    No that is not why people are leaving. Housing prices and Tech satellites I would say are the main reason. Most people dont pay attention to government like we do.

    People are much more liberal now than when I first stared coming to Cali. We have this nutty mayor environmentaist, who ripped out two lanes of Venice Blvd, because he wanted people to drive less becauwe of global warming. This has added 40 min to the commute, and business are dying as people are taking alternate routes.

    If government allowed people to utilize their private property as they saw fit housing prices would not be so ridiculous. People aren't leaving because of a protest; they are leaving because the quality of life has become poor.

    Isn't that the case of nearly every liberal utopia? The Hamptons being the exception.....

    Expensive, high taxes, low freedom, lots of poor people living on the street, and many other things many would not appreciate. Bammer might know most of this.

    I think the lady moving out hit the nail right on the head. It'll be interesting to see how the liberal utopia goes as "other people's" money keeps moving out.
