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

Yes there absolutely are. And THAT is because in a couple of different places (Houston and Dallas) we have WAY too many elected officials that think the Detroit model of urban government is a success. In the areas where people who have an IQ above 50 Texas is just fine and as long as you do not attempt to break into someones home you will do just fine. Otherwise not so much.

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...
