Just Because California Is Terrible, that Doesn’t Mean Texas Is Perfect.

I was at a music festival very close to the border between Arizona and California, on the CA side. They exhorted us to go into town and buy products since the whole thing was sponsored by the chamber of commerce. But diesel fuel there was $4.11.9 and 3 miles away in AZ is was $3.81.9. I needed 30 gallons for my rig. It was well worth it for me to drive the extra 3 miles each way to fill up in AZ. I saved enough to buy lunch and still come out ahead. The politicians and people here are tax crazy. I'm glad I'm leaving.

Haven't you noticed that CA is completely run by Democrats? Why would you expect it not to be taxed into poverty?

Texas is in much better shape than California. Taxes are lower, in part because Texas has no state income tax.

No wonder the Lone Star State is growing faster and creating more jobs.

And the gap will soon get even wider since California voters recently decided to drive away more productive people by raising top tax rates.

But a key challenge for all governments is controlling the size and cost of bureaucracies.

Government employees are probably overpaid in both...
