California Is Broke – 19 Reasons Why It May Be Time For Everyone To Leave The State Of California For Good

Back in the 1960s and 1970s, there was a seemingly endless parade of pop songs about how great life was in California, and millions of young Americans dreamed of moving to the land of sandy beaches and golden sunshine.  But now all of that has changed.  Today, millions of Californians are dreaming about leaving the state for good.  The truth is that California is broke.  The economy of the state is in shambles.  The official unemployment rate has been sitting above 12 percent for an extended period of time, and poverty is everywhere.  For many Californians today, there are very few reasons to stay in the state but a whole lot of reasons to leave: falling housing prices, rising crime, budget cuts, rampant illegal immigration, horrific traffic, some of the most brutal tax rates in the nation, increasing gang violence and the ever present threat of wildfires, mudslides and natural disasters.  The truth is that it is easy to understand why there are now more Americans moving out of California each year than there are Americans moving into the state.  California has become a complete and total disaster zone in more ways than one, and an increasing number of Californians are deciding that enough is enough and they are getting out for good.

Sadly, the state of California is facing such a wide array of social, economic, and political problems that it is hard to even document them all.  It is really one huge gigantic mess at this point.

Just consider the following facts about what life is like in the state of California today.... 

#1 Unemployment in the state of California was 12.4% in September - one of the highest rates in the nation.

#2 The number of people unemployed in the state of California is approximately equivalent to the populations of Nevada, New Hampshire and Vermont combined.

#3 Not even state government jobs are safe in California these days.  Last month, government agencies in California slashed a total of 37,300 jobs.

#4 California has the third highest state income tax in the nation: a 9.55% tax bracket at $47,055 and a 10.55% bracket at $1,000,000.

#5 California has the highest state sales tax rate in the nation by far at 8.25%.  Indiana has the next highest at 7%.

#6 Residents of California pay the highest gasoline taxes (over 67 cents per gallon) in the United States.

#7 Even with all of the taxes, the budget deficit for the California state government for the current year is approximately 19 billion dollars.

#8 According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, California's unfunded pension liability is estimated to be somewhere between $120 billion and $500 billion.

#9 20 percent of the residents of Los Angeles County are now receiving public aid.

#10 Budget cuts are making life very difficult in many California cities.  For example, Oakland, California Police Chief Anthony Batts says that due to severe budget cuts there are a number of crimes that his department will simply not be able to respond to any longer.  The crimes that the Oakland police will no longer be responding to include grand theft, burglary, car wrecks, identity theft and vandalism. 

Things have gotten so bad in Stockton, California that the police union put up a billboard with the following message: "Welcome to the 2nd most dangerous city in California. Stop laying off cops."

#11 According to one survey, approximately 1 in 4 Californians under the age of 65 had absolutely no health insurance last year.

#12 California's poverty rate soared to 15.3 percent in 2009, which was the highest in 11 years.

#13 California's overstretched health care system is also on the verge of collapse.  Dozens of California hospitals and emergency rooms have shut down over the last decade because they could not afford to stay open after being endlessly swamped by illegal immigrants and poor Californians who were simply not able to pay for the services they were receiving.  As a result, the remainder of the health care system in the state of California is now beyond overloaded.  This had led to brutally long waits, diverted ambulances and even unnecessary patient deaths.

#14 California home builders began construction on 1,811 homes during the month of August, which was down 77% from August 2006.

#15 Earlier this year, it was reported that in the area around Sacramento, California there was one closed business for every six that were still open.

#16 The "lawsuit climate" in California is ranked number 46 out of all 50 states. 

#17 Residents of California pay some of the highest electricity prices in the entire nation.

#18 Over 20 percent of California homeowners are now underwater on their mortgages.

#19 Large tent cities have been springing up all over the state of California.  Just check out the following shocking video news report....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRLupIRhrmg

So why doesn't the state government of California just fix many of these problems?  Well, the truth is that it simply cannot.  The state government is flat broke.  Earlier this year, Bob Herbert of the New York Times described California's massive budget problems this way....

California has cut billions of dollars from its education system, including its renowned network of public colleges and universities. Many thousands of teachers have been let go. Budget officials travel the state with a glazed look in their eyes, having tried everything they can think of to balance the state budget. And still the deficits persist.

So is there any hope that all this can be turned around?

Is there any hope that the economy of California will recover?

Or will California continue to experience a rapid decline?

    My wife and I started full time RVing September 2009. As soon as we got to Florida, we changed our residency to there. That decision alone saved us over $1,500 just in license and annual vehicle registration. No state income tax and since I’m a 100% disable vet, I’ll pay no property tax when I buy there. I still own a paid for house in CA and will sell it when the market turns around. I can still vote in CA but I don’t have any hope for CA. I’ll do what I can for CA by voting for good people and nothing more. We feel sorry for our kids who still live in CA.

  • Eric

    To NW Mom: Oh I hope you’re wrong…I just moved from California to Washington in search of greener pastures. I know Washington is a “blue” state, but I did some research and decided to make the move anyway.

    California is a typical example of what happens when liberals are in control…and that goes for Arnold too. Anyone who thinks Schwarzenegger represents Republican values is simply clueless. He is the founding father of the RINO club. He’s as liberal as any Dem in San Francisco, which is a big part of the problem. For Pete’s sake, look at who he’s married to! That’s why I laugh out loud when some moron points to Arnold Schwarzenegger as an example of “Republican failure”. Schwarzenegger is not and never was a Republican. He only ran as a Republican because he knew he would never get elected as a Democrat under the circumstances following Grey Davis.

    I personally know farmers who have been relegated to poverty status because of the environmentalist movement. Long live the Delta smelt…while the most fertile farmland in the world dries up into a dust-bowl, and land that has been passed down for generations is put up for collateral and eventually goes into foreclosure.

    I also remember reading a story about brand new housing complexes being demolished for public safety reasons (vagrants, crack houses, vandals, etc). Brand spanking new houses that had never even been lived in…bulldozed because nobody would buy them before the riff-raff moved in. It was more expensive to keep them standing than to cut the losses and walk away.

    And how many years has it been since the legislature has been able to pass a budget on time?

    I know I’ve rambled on here, and I could on for another 12 pages, but I’ll just stop. I’m glad I made the move, but I’m sad about it at the same time.

    The definition of stupidity is doing something
    the same way every time and expecting a different

    political minds. Socialism is was and always will

  • R Ellis

    We left California in 2008 and do not regret it! A state that once ranked 3 in the world in wealth is now sadly approaching third world status. The state has suffered for years under Democrat rule and left leaning environmentalists, stifling businesses and farming. The influx of illegal immigrants is resulting in stretched social services and increasing taxes. Illegal immigrants are protected from deportation with “Sanctuary City” status within the state. Most California legislators are bought and paid for by unions,and ironically the Assembly leader is a former union negotiator! Yep we got out. We just feel sorry for our kids who can’t get out right now!

  • formerCalresident

    I lived in Calif from 1982 to 1991.
    The state is run by the unions.
    The Mexicans are on all the state government
    payrolls and living on state government welfare. My mother still lives in N Cali.
    She can’t sell her house because last year
    the fires burned all the houses around her.
    She has no where to go. She can’t afford to
    pay the taxes. She’s barely getting by yet
    the Mexicans are driving new cars and live
    in new houses, all state government subsidezed. You can’t bring up the poor by
    bringing down the rich.

  • karen

    This is a classic example of “You reap what you sow.” Don’t expect the rest of the country to bail out California for being irresponsible. We aren’t in the mood anymore. There are consequences for liberal progressive policies, and the chickens have come home to roost. California, it is time to grow up and deal with the mess you have created. Good luck!!!

    These municipalities and states are not ‘broke’. They are just as corrupt as the ‘City of Bell’. How do you get the self-serving,
    entitled government functionaries to ADMIT THEY HAVE EMBEZZLED, MISAPPROPRIATED MILLIONS ON AN ANNUAL BASIS WHEN THE END OF THE FISCAL YEAR IS IN SIGHT? They take their cues from the ‘District of Criminals’. This is already a COMPLETELY TOP DOWN SOCIETY, wherein the different levels of government exist to keep people in their place. Through the deliberate debasing of our currency over the past 40 years, and especially within the past 10, there has been a movement afoot to destroy the ‘middle-class’, so that the numbers of dispossessed overwhelms the capacity of the state to properly satisfy, civil unrest and chaos ensues, wherein the stratified police state can play its ‘war
    games’ carte blanche to the whimpers of approval of the self-righteous, duly ‘terrorized’ remnants of the ‘middle’ and
    ‘upper’ classes.
    WAKE UP, America!! Pledge your allegiance to the REPUBLIC of the united States of America.
    IT IS BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!! Turn your back on the blood sucking USSA, Inc, and its many tentacled fascist corporate bodies, NOW, WHILE WE STILL CAN!

  • Cameron

    California is “The Granola Bar State” because it’s chock-full of fruits, flakes, & nuts, but since CA is such a great place in which to live, maybe ALL the Liberals will move there & give the rest of America, aka “flyover country”, to Conservatives who will take GOOD care of it. Then poor CA won’t have to subsidize the “poor” States so much. One can only dream!

    Bob had it right back in October. Stop the inflow of illegal immigrants. We can not afford to carry them on our backs! If California doesn’t have the guts to send them home, send them to Arizona or Oklahoma. Those guys know how to get it done.

    I seem to remember that CA owns rights to get propositions on their Ballots like (Prop-13-!)
    Two propositions can make a difference-! One might recall Fed Judges, from CA for disobeyed
    articles in the Constitution-! Get rid of Dems
    by not allowing Charity to Positions of Power!
    Make them commit to a $1 per week salary! They
    want to serve their state–fine! No illegals allowed, if you don’t have permission to come,
    “The Door is closed-!” In 1620, the Mayflower Pilgrims had to get English-King’s permission to come to America, & everyone else had to get
    the same permission–after that! And the USA
    required immigrants to apply & also take a Health-Examination & pass it–& to remain in
    good report in obeying laws for 5 yrs before
    you got your final citizenship! Why show any
    difference for anyone else-!? Aren’t we all equal-!?

  • Rebootd

    Clint Mcgriff’s little off-hand statement about “apartment dwelling scum” is telling – just exactly where does he think most blue collar workers live? All you folks whining about Democrats and immigrants need to look in the mirror – what decisions were you making that put you in such a vulnerable position? Did you prepare for nothing? Or did you just run out and get a mortgage and six credit cards just because you could, all while looking down on people who have been poor for decades? This country is so full of whiners and blamers and scapegoaters.
    There is an small number of elite rich folks who run this country. Get used to it, start understanding it, and quit blaming your neighbors for how they voted, because this economic meltdown has nothing to do with “liberal” or “conservative.” Screaming about politics is exactly what the PTB want you to do. The time has come to learn how to take care of yourselves instead.

  • Smart Guy

    Vote for Prop 19. While it probably won’t raise $1+ billion in tax revenue like many say, it would definitely help out the current crisis.

    Hello Folks in here The Very LIBERAL DEMOCRATS have been in office and have had total control for over 30 years. And Brown is the one that started the mess we are in, allowing sanctuary cities and the huge Government Union Take over of our state. Guess what FOlks he is going to win this election it is pathetic people in State will vote for him just because he has a (d) behind his name not knowing He is the cause of this Mess we are in.

    You may be surprised how quickly the economy and all who are willing to work will prosper.

  • AnotherExCalifornian

    Born and raised in northern California, I took my family and left the state in 2008. We got out just before things started getting really bad in the small town where we lived. Friends that are still there relay stories of closed shops downtown, no jobs, and an economy that’s fallen completely apart. I got a job in Texas a day after I started looking and two years later I’m looking for a house to buy. While I miss my friends there and I feel for my native state, I’ll never go back.

  • PC

    And to make matters even worse the state of California elects Jerry Brown. Come on people we need change. The man is elderly, things cant be run the way they were run in the 70s. Is he going to reform welfare? We have illegal immigrants come here just to have kids and then end up on welfare. Who pays for that, we do, the working people of CA. what about government employees? Are they going to continue to sit on their fat butts and continue to get great health benefits and the best pensions plans out there. Labor unions are other issue. what about social security reform? there are people out there that have never in their life worked for the united states but they come here, become citizens and get social security. Does this make any sense. that’s why we are falling behind even as a nation!

  • JUSTICEFORALL

    LET’S SEE – ALL THESE AMERICANS ARE NOW UNEMPLOYED BUT ALL THE ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE STILL WORKING AT THEIR JOBS. EASY SOLUTION – MANDATE THE E-VERIFY SYSTEM FOR “ALL EMPLOYERS” AND GET THE ILLEGALS OUT OF OUR JOBS! ENFORCE IMMIGRATION LAWS WHICH STATE ANY EMPLOYER CAUGHT HIRING AN ILLEGALS FIRST GETS FINED AND THEN THROWN IN PRISON AND WATCH HOW QUICK AMERICANS ARE GIVEN THEIR JOBS BACK AND ILLEGALS WILL SELF-DEPORT. ALSO, GIVE THEM A DEADLINE AFTER WHICH IF THEY ARE CAUGHT STILL HERE, THEY WILL BE THROWN IN PRISON FOR 10 YEARS AND THEIR BELONGINGS THEY HAVE STOLEN FROM THIS NATION CONFISCATED. THEY WILL LEAVE, AND AMERICANS CAN GET THEIR JOBS BACK!

    left California a long time ago. What a weird place to live, Disgraceful with all that money and opportunity there ,they developed a rat hole.

  • David Alan

    Our family of seven left the “Golden State”, land of our upbringing over 40 years, greatly sorrowed over what it had become…California isn’t alone in the problems, though.

    Sad thing is, this malaise of depression is over the whole of America…don’t be fooled, it’s just worse in California – we left 4 years ago….CA is just one of the worst off patients in the Cancer Ward, but to our shock & dismay…Texas, our newly chosen State, is not far behind.

    Not quite as bad, but most of those problems are here, in seed form anyhow.

    To cut to the chase, on the surface the disease is Statism, which both parties are addicted to, GOP & Democrats alike, therefore, hoping for a mere election to make a change, without a widespread repentance, is a vain hope.

    The cause of our disease of “Statism”, the root, is a failure to look to God & His remedy Jesus Christ, as our supply & source of happiness & fulfillment.

    Instead, we look to our jobs, money, social status & connections, and ultimately, to the State – Caesar (not just for welfare & foodstamps – corporate & state contracts & gov’t jobs are just as surely welfare), instead of to God, and our neighbors.

    If the surface disease is Statism, the root is Idolatry, pure & simple – so that Statism / Idolatry are two sides of the same coin.

    We in our family have been feeling the fallout, and are in repentance mode – God be praised – and have fore-sworn trying to use political solutions to solve spiritual ills.

    I’m not saying there isn’t a role for Godly men in the political realm – there sure is (the truly Godly man will be known ‘in the Gates’ – civic life / politics), but the Truth is, we have our self & family & church ‘sphere / governments’ totally messed up – our of joint with God’s righteous commands – and are justly reaping horrible fruit.

    85 % of children from professedly Christian homes lose their faith during the college years. Many of them will fornicate, rather than marry, the few that do marry will bear very few children. Huh ?

    This is a curse, that Satan would steal our ‘Godly seed’ that He promised us.

    So what do we do ?

    We go nuts in the political realm, keep spending ourselves into a deeper debt hole, eating all the processed garbage at the grocery store, getting all manner of diseases in the process, and then, in vain, pray for God to heal us.

    Look at the ObamaCommie Care Socialized medicine program – is that not the State / Caesar, posing ‘the One who healeth your diseases’ – “Jehovah Rapha” ?

    So many professed of us professed Christians have turned to the State for our needs, so that the State begins to take on the role that actually only belongs to God. In doing this, the actions of Ceasar have their root in our disobeying God’s will for our lives – his plan for healthy living & eating, and his commandments to ‘come our from amongst them & be ye separate, saith the LORD.”

    Yet in the past year, how many Christians or pastors have told you that ? I pray some have – or that you sensed it. But haven’t you seen many, many political complaints about the ObamaCommieCare plan, that totally ignored the spiritual root cause of this plan ?

    The Scriptures say: “He that turns aside from hearing the Law of the LORD, even his prayer shall be an abomination to Me.”

    The solution: repent, repent, repent. Read Psalm 51 where King David tearfully repents – let his prayer, be our prayer.

    Then, read Isaiah Chapter 1, the most amazing passage / guide to thorough cultural & church repentance – note how it says that UNTIL we cease our works of evil (God will reveal them to us WHEN we are humble, not before) & begin doing good, God will not even hear our most fervent prayer.

    I’ve read most of the comments in this thread – and I’m shocked at how few of them connect the cultural degredation to the churches apostasy (I apologize if I missed some that did) – therefore I feel duty bound to comment.

    This is no holier than thou stance I make here, brothers & sisters in Christ – every drop of 3 + years of blood, sweat & tears our family has suffered, learning these lessons the hard way – I am trying to express to you.

    We left the mess that is California (San Diego / Riverside county area) – for most all these 19 reasons listed in this article – knowing the State was going downhill, fast.

    But the fact is, that either California or Texas are both doomed if / because they have rejected Christ’s LORDSHIP over both the leaders & the people.

    Final idea: Note Isaiah 33:22, that for the LORD to be our Savior, he must first be our “Judge, Lawgiver & King” – only then will he be our “Savior”.

    Have you & your family made Him, submitted to Him as “Judge, Lawgiver & King” or are you ignoring Him in those areas, just hoping for an ‘easy out’ savior ?

    As the true saying goes: “If He’s not LORD of all, He’s not LORD at all.”

    Amen !

    May the power of God, in Christ & the Holy Spirit, save all the 50 states as we return to Him in humble repentance !

      Praise God David for your courage to speak His word! You hit the nail on the head! People also need to know that we are more than halfway through the prophecies in God’s book of Revelations! We need to get ready, hold onto your hats, because the Lord is soon to return! It won’t mater one bit who is “who the President is, or who is elected to office” So it is written, so it shall be. The question is: “Will YOU be ready????”

  • Rory Trup

    The central problem in California is the dominate party (democrats) are anti- Christian. San Francisco’s homosexual proclivity results in a Sacramento leadership fixated on promoting a variety of orgasisms rather than responsible economics. These tyrants passed out entitlements/other people’s money to ensure votes for radical environmental deviants. These creeps even declared a “Harvey Milk” day in public schools. Harvey Milk was an admitted pedophile and would have been sued if he was a Catholic Priest (read his own quotes in his biography). Go figure. Plus, the environmental side does not like jobs because work uses energy and manufacturing polutes. Boxer and Pelocy even won re-election again Nov. 2nd. I rest my case.

    Study: Foreign-born workers gain 656,000 jobs
    http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/border/
    October 29, 2010
    Immigrants have gained more than 600,000 jobs since the official end of the Great Recession in June 2009, according to a newly released study. Native-born workers fared far worse, shedding 1.5 million jobs, according to an analysis by the Pew Hispanic Center of U.S. Census Bureau and Department of Labor data.
    If illegals were not here there would be 1/3 less unemployment by simple arithmetic.

  • Hansen

    When you read about crowded schools with no money, closed hospitals, high medical costs, overcrowded prisons, think Wall Street and also think Central American immigration. Here’s how it starts:
    For anyone who cares about actual statistics. The number one expenditure in California is live births. Latino women have 69% of all the births on Medical, and half of them are undocumented.

    Latino kids make up over 52% of all Medi Cal recipients. That’s because they automatically get enrolled when they are born to their illegal or legal Latino mom’s here.

    Our health care system in California is all about Latino kids. Don’t believe me though, read the report straight from Medi Cal.

    Having been born and raised in Detroit, I headed west for the bay area and lived there for the majority of the seventies. It was a great place to live while going through the roaring twenties of sex, drugs & rock n’ roll. Now, most of those in my peer group are running the state of California. What a travesty. The LBGT Confederacy dictates most of the politically correct trajectory of the school system. Deviant behavior engenders deviancy. A sphincter was designed by God to defecate with…not fornicate with. While that may come off as a shallow metaphor, just think about it. When a great state is run by deviants, deviancy is the result. You can blow it off as being homophobic, I don’t really give a shizz. They made their bed and now bitch about the inherent bed-bugs. I would not live in California even if offered a well paying job and free rent.

    I believe California is going broke because they allow workers to rec unemployment too easy now, they will give it to you for almost any reason. A person and decide they don’t need to work anymore get up and walk out “quit”, and still they are allowed unemployment. How qualified is that person sitting there passing out unemployment to everybody.

Thankfully there are many ways for those who have lived here for years enjoying this wonderful state and all it has to offer and now don’t want to be here, to leave. The illegals that cost us millions of dollars a day in so many ways should be the first to be deported. I came with my family from another country leagally. It should still be a requirement today, but my belief is that local government will not ever allow this to happen which is beyond me. Also get these people off welfare. Taking the train you can see a lot that needs to be done in LA and so many other cities south and north why not get these people out to clean it up.

    The reason Califonia is this bad now is simple. As the percentage of white people continues to drop and Black and Hispanic rise the state will coninue to decline and it will never get better. look at Detroit.

    major corporations in California hardly pay any taxes. It is the rich who get the most welfare by far and who are leaching the system.

    Harvey Milk Stamped “Out” Forever !

    The Obama Cabal is
    behind universal GAYety with a “forever” postage stamp glorifying Harvey
    Milk, a Jewish homosexual predator “attracted to boys aged 15-19,”
    according to WikiAnswers! (Also see Wikipedia.)
    Global gaydom was even predicted by Jesus (see “days of Lot” in Luke 17 and compare with Genesis 19).

    And the Hebrew prophet Zechariah (14th chapter) says that during the
    same end-time gay “days” ALL nations will come against Israel and
    fulfill the “days of Noah” at the same time (see Luke 17 again) – a
    short time of anti-Jewish genocide found in Zechariah 13:8 when
    two-thirds of all Jews will die.
    In other words, when “gay days” have become universal, all hell will break loose!

    The same “days” will cause worldwide human government to collapse in
    just a few short years! For the first time ever there won’t be enough
    time for anyone to attend college, have a family, enjoy retirement, etc.
    It will also be the last time anyone like ObabaBlackSheep will be able
    to keep pulling the wool over our eyes!
    One final thought. The more we see gays “coming out,” the sooner Jesus will be “coming down”!

    For more, Google or Yahoo “God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up,” “Jesus Never
    Mentioned Homosexuality. When gays have birthdays…,” “FOR GAYS ONLY:
    Jesus Predicted…,” “USA – from Puritans to Impure-itans!” and “The
    Background Obama Can’t Cover Up.”
    (PS: HOMOgenized Milk is preferred by Gov. Schwarzenaggravator and Pres. ObabaBlackSheep.)
