California the best state in the country and it's not close.

 

If you're rich and famous, yes.

If you're a foreigner and here illegally, yes.

If you have a job and a family, probably not.

Very well stated.

My Dem friends that live there routinely say the place is great. Even my hardcore Trump/Rep friend loves Cali. 

 

But yet all I hear from Fox/Reps/Twitter is how awful Cali is.

So why don't all these people with jobs and families leave to another state if it's so bad?

That's what I thought.

Between 2007 and 2016, some 5 million people moved in to California and 6 million people moved out to other states — a net loss of about 1 million residents

California has been a disaster for a while now. There are at least 10 states I'd rather live in, and yes, including Texas.

just imagine what the numbers are gonna look like now for wealthy retirees, under the new tax law

 

deduction for state income taxes + real estate taxes combined is now limited to 10k... someone making 300k and living in a $1m home was probably getting about $60k in deductions on the federal return, now getting 0 and costing them maybe 20k/year

 

nevada was always a lot cheaper, now the gap widened even further... i said retirees because obviously the high-paying job situation is a lot better in california

California was paradise when I grew up there in the 60s and 70s.

 

By the 80s it had become a toilet. Beautiful beach areas littered with graffiti, failed social engineering projects like forced school busing, etc.

 

When I left in the 90s I think I was the last English speaking person there.

Washington wasn't half this liberal when I moved here. The California exodus brought thousands here in the late 90s.

 

I'll be in Nevada the day after I retire.

Of course it is.

Lived here my whole life and it’s easily better now than 10-20-30 years ago.

I state that California is the greatest state in the union... sorry that gets the conservatards riled up. They start jibber-jabbing with their anecdotal nonsense. Craziness.

If it's so bad... then move. Isn't that what these guys tell people who complain about the country? "You don't like it- leave." Just using their words.

All the shit, Conservatard States are welfare states that live off the great Liberal States. These are facts, folks.

It is the best place to live but conversely if you think that why are you living in Arizona?

I actually think I liked Oregon more when accounting for cost of living and etc. Oregon coast is just as awesome imo and I enjoyed Portland a lot. A little small but big enough and close enough to a lot of great hiking and outdoor stuff.

If money wasn't a burden at all I'd say San Diego is my favorite city. With taxes and cost of living taken into account I'd probably pick Oregon.
