Mass Exodus From States Run By Top Democratic Governors
They talk a lot, embrace double standards, have many wonderful sounding ideas, and deride facts, figures and anything Trump.
More Liberal Lies
As Democrat controlled media fills the airwaves with hate, fake news, double standards, and lies, it seems there is no longer hope for a land that appears to have abandoned all traditional values. Values like family, personal responsibility, hard work, divine providence, and the unbearable notion of freedom.
Surf the news on any given night and it will seem as if the nation is set on embracing failed policies, overwhelmed by raging ‘political organizers,’ fascinated by nit-picking witch hunts, and falling apart at the seams.
But, there is another story, another perspective, another powerful force at work that fortunately, has the upper hand. It is the force of the silent majority; those who go to work, raise their family, give graciously to their community, and have had enough of this Liberal insanity.
If anyone doubts this for a moment, explain why we have a President Trump, not a President Clinton, and why 1,000 democrats were just voted out of office. This silent majority spoke up loud and clear when they voted against the failed policies of the Obama era and the devastating potential of a corrupt Clinton era.
“All this rhetoric might be just the baseless ramblings of a mad man, unless you look at the one thing many liberals abhor – facts.”
Take a look at the financial and social history of these idealist liberal states and you will find one consistent fact. Once a state becomes blue you can be sure to see an increase in taxes, unemployment, welfare demands, polution, taxes, crime, poverty, fees, fines, more taxes, restrictions, a breakdown in social structure, and eventually . . . people move out.
That is a fact, it might not be one that they want to hear, but take a look at Newark, Baltimore, Chicago, St. Louis, Philadelphia, and the once prosperous Detroit.
History shows that the deception will continue until the “Place Is Detroited.” Then, and only then, do desperate residents step in and rebuild their once prosperous land by taking one simple step – implementing once again the ‘disgusting’ Conservative principles that made their city great in the first place.

More Twisted Facts Brought To Light
The Democratic Governors Association, in an attempt to attack Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) tweeted this week about how 33,000 people left Illinois for another state over the past year, continuing years of outmigration from the Land of Lincoln.
With that tweet, the DGA is trying to make the public dumber. The DGA knows full well that Gov. Bruce Rauner doesn’t run his state. That would be House Speaker Mike Madigan (D), who has presided over the decline of a once great state during his 34 years as Speaker. By attempting to pin Illinois’ continued decline on Gov. Rauner, the DGA is either ignorant about how Illinois politics works, or they are lying. Most likely the latter, but either way it’s not good.
The DGA wants to talk about the 33,000 people who have fled Speaker Mike Madigan’s Illinois over the last year. What they won’t be touting is the fact that during the administration of Gov. Pat Quinn (D), Rauner’s predecessor, 247,410 people on net left Illinois for the likes of North Carolina, Texas, Florida, Arizona, and other states that are better stewards of taxpayer dollars. Those 247,410 people who left during Gov. Quinn’s time in office, according to IRS migration data, took $13.7 billion with them to states that that are better run and have lower taxes.
The DGA really doesn’t want to dive into interstate migration data, as it does not reflect well on their most prominent governors. Let’s start by looking at what has happened in California since Jerry Brown became governor again in January of 2011.
Since Gov. Brown was sworn in, becoming the oldest governor in state history, 243,099 people have fled California on net for other states, taking $7.794 billion with them to states that don’t have such high taxes and onerous regulations that make housing unaffordable for middle class households. The top recipients of Golden State refugees last year were Texas and Nevada, two states that have zero income tax. California, meanwhile, levies the highest top marginal income tax rate in the nation. Policy, like elections, has consequences.
The personal and corporate income tax hikes championed by Gov. Brown in 2012 have likely helped exacerbate the exodus of Californians. In a move that will further drive up the cost of living in one of the hardest states in which to get by, Gov. Brown approved an extension of the state cap & trade program earlier this year. This will hurt low and middle income households the hardest, who will face what is effectively a regressive tax hike in the form of higher gas prices and utility bills.
Cap & trade makes Gov. Brown, Democratic lawmakers who run the state legislature with such large majorities they don’t even feel the need to discipline sexual offenders in their caucus, and their supporters feel good about themselves. But the program doesn’t improve the environment. In fact, California, even with its cap & trade program and renewable energy mandate, is home to 8 of the 10 cities with the nation’s worst air pollution.”
