Why California is No Longer a Paradise

As the blogger notes:

California has followed the grim path of the Great Lakes states.

As I wrote before, those states where once the industrial dynamo for the entire Earth, yet they destroyed that enormous economic dominance by political policies hostile to economic creativity. Likewise, California had a golden era as an economic and cultural dynamo. Well up until the late 1980s California was the place to go to make it big. People moved from other states to California. Now, internal migration has reversed. California looks less like a dreamland and more like basket case waiting to happen.

The truly sad thing is that many of those people fleeing California for greener pastures are bringing with them the same appetite for big government, nanny state-ism that turned California from a paradise into a bankrupt nutty farm. They will then proceed to mess it up for everyone else.
