Why Californians Can’t Wait to Get to Texas, Part 6,572

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Two interesting articles today on studies conducted by two different groups shed light on why so many people are leaving Democrat-run California to move to Texas, where no Democrat has won a statewide election in a quarter of a century.

The first study, from the very liberal Brookings Institution, cites Texas as having 3 of the 5 most popular destination cities for Millennial professionals: Dallas, Austin and Houston. The other two cities that round out the top 5 in this analysis are Denver and Seattle. Note the absence of any city from California, even those that reside in the Silicon Valley region of the state.

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, Houston has averaged importing a net 15,000 young adults between the ages of 25 to 34 each of the last five years, while cities like Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, San Diego and Miami have lost between 7,000 and 19,000 each of those years. Of those five largest population-losing cities, only Miami is part of a state that is not a Democrat stronghold, although the city itself certainly is. Of the five cities leading the gainers, only Seattle is part of a predominantly-Democrat state, although Colorado is now leaning in that direction.

With Seattle’s mushrooming homeless issue and a Democrat city government that is now actively encouraging the business community to go elsewhere, it will be very interesting to see the results of the next Brookings study five years from now. Ditto Denver, where Colorado is now going through its first year of a totally-leftist-Democrat-dominated state government, which is going about implementing a whole raft of radical policies, most of which will negatively impact the business community there.

The second very interesting study comes to us from the leftist American Lung Association, and its annual State of the Air report. CNN’s report on that study contains the following very interesting passage:

An increasing number — more than 20.5 million people — lived in counties with year-round particle pollution problems. Topping that list was the Fresno-Madera-Hanford, California, area; followed by Bakersfield, California; Fairbanks, Alaska; Visalia, California; Los Angeles-Long Beach, California; San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland, California; the Pittsburgh-New Castle Weirton, Pennsylvania-Ohio-West Virginia area; El Centro, California; the Cleveland-Akron-Canton, Ohio, area; and Medford-Grants Pass, Oregon.

So, 11 of the cities with the worst air pollution happen to be in California, despite decades of mindless radical leftwing policies implemented by Democrat-dominated legislatures and a parade of liberal governors. The CNN report naturally tries to blame it all on Donald Trump – because of course it does – but it ignores the reality that California’s air quality standards have been stricter than those of the EPA for decades now. None of that state’s issues have a damn thing to do with a President who has only been in office for two years.

Note which state does not place a single city on that list: Texas. Which, as mentioned above, has been governed by a purely-Republican state government for 25 years now.

This not a coincidence, folks.

Of course, as I’ve discussed in the past, the problem with all these migrating Californians is that they leave that state to get away from all the high-tax, anti-business policies enacted by Democrats, and then they move to a new state and just keep on voting for more Democrats. Nobody in our fake news media will acknowledge it, but that’s one of the main reasons why Colorado has transitioned from a reliable GOP state to a near-reliable Democrat state over the last 20 years.

That is also why the states of Arizona and Nevada are verging on a similar transition, and it’s why we saw the winning margins of winning GOP candidates in Texas narrow in 2018 as compared to previous election cycles in the 21st century.

So, right now Texas has far more attractive and less polluted cities than California, but as more and more native Californians leave their home state to get to Texas, that will all eventually begin to change.

As a 7th generation native Texan myself, I’d prefer that President Trump build a wall around California than along the Rio Grande, simply to preserve the health of my home state.

God Bless Texas.

That is all.

    California scum destroying everything in their path across the country, first Nv, then Az and NM, and now Texas.

    California needs a nuke before it destroys what’s left of the decent states.

    I wonder if the snowflakes will be able to turn other cities into the same crappy place like they are leaving? Austin and Seattle among others are leftwing democrat run sink holes already.

  4. Peter Ferris - April 25, 2019

    I am in Texas and this SUC@S, the democrats come here and vote the same way that got them in trouble in the first place….
