California is too busy building high-speed rail that no one will ride and delta by-pass tunnels that won't work to actually do something that will help the state. Can we trade our legislature for the one in Austin?

NO WAY-Calif doesn't have anything left that I would trade them for. We've already picked up a lot of their tech companies, and I don't want anything else they have (except Phil Mickelson). Keep them all in California.

Don't let 'em do it Texan! Bunch of So Cal types turned Tucson into a hotbed of liberalism. Now taxes are ridiculous. And while the city streets are full of potholes, a four million dollar streetcar project is ongoing which will cover only five miles of town. It's about 40 miles across the city.

They ruin a place with lib policies, then it's so bad that they have to get away from it so they go somewhere else, but they continue with their lib policies (being too stupid to udnerstand what ruined the place they started at), and ruin the place they moved to. They pretty much destroy everything they touch.

New Hampshire was once the only red state in heavily liberal New England. With the influx of people from Massachusetts due to the high tax rate, it has since turned blue like the rest of New England.

 

Hollywood is shifting production away from Los Angeles thanks to something many of its stars seem to oppose—lower taxes.
