Fastest growth in the nation, far lower-than-average unemployment, elected three times and shot a coyote while out for a jog! Compare that to Governor Moonbeam (aka Jerry Brown) He wants a high speed rail to nowhere, unemployment is at 9%, and California has lost 3.4 million residents since 1990. Texas, however, has 8 of the 15 fastest growing cities in America!
You want a trick question? Try this - Is there any sexual deviant that Democrats won't run for public office?
Reason three in the LA Times list of whining and nonsense is executions. Yes, Texas has and utilizes the death penalty. Yes, honest people can have a conversation about its efficacy. But, you know who else has the death penalty? CALIFORNIA! In 2012, voters refused to end it. They voted for Obama, AND to keep the death penalty!! Now that's sick!
The list ends with nonsense, and joy in human suffering. Fourth on their list is weather. Weather, by the way, is the only thing that keeps people in California (specifically Southern California) and suffering through the ignorance of high taxation and state-sponsored citizen hate. Fifth on the list is "Things that go boom," a nauseating reference to an explosion of a fertilizer plant in West, Texas, that killed 14.
The author doesn't want you to move to Texas because government oversight of such a plant is horrible (even though it's not the reason for the explosion.) For "proof" of the oversight issue, he points to another explosion that took place in 1947. That's 66 years ago.
The LA Times (and Paul Whitefield) wants more abortions, and less financial freedom. The real reason Whitefield doesn't want you to go to Texas is that there isn't enough government, which is why people go there in the first place.
