Californians Fleeing 'Nanny State' for Texas

Stunning beauty and great weather haven't stopped some 3.5 million Californians from deserting the Golden State. One major reason: frustration with California being the worst of the "nanny states." Read Transcript


IT MAYBE A STATE OF STUNNING

BEAUTY AND WEATHER BUT PEOPLE

ARE LEAVING CALIFORNIA IN

DROVES. CILIA WILL SOON JOIN

THEM.

IT BREAKS MY HEART AND TO

LIVE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA YOU

CAN BE AT THE BEACH OR SKIING

IN

AN HOUR.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT

RESIDENTS AREN'T LEAVING AND

HIGH TAXES AND BAD GOVERNMENT

AND THOSE BELIEVE IT'S GOING TO

GET WORSE.

WE SAW ONE VAN COMING INTO

CALIFORNIA AND HALF A VANS

MOVING OUT. VOTERS ARE MOVING

IN A SENSE WITH THEIR MOVING

TRUCKS.

MEREDITH CAM PLAINS

CALIFORNIA IS THE WORSE OF THE

NANNY STATE.

LEGISLATORS IN SACRAMENTO

THINK THEY KNOW BETTER HOW YOU

SHOULD RUN YOUR LIFE AND THAT

KIND OF MENTALITY I COULDN'T

LIVE WITH THAT.

SHE SAYS LAWMAKERS INTRODUCE

2,000 LAWS A YEAR.

2,000 NEW LAWS AND TO ABIDE

BY.

AND THIS LOBBY IFTD SAID SHE

WAS TREATED HORRIBLY.

IT WAS COMMON FOR ME TO GO

IN

AND TALK ABOUT PROFAMILY

POLICIES AND CALLED A BIG ON

THE.

AND THAT GOT LINDA GOING TO

MOVE BACK TO TEXAS AND WAS

CONFRONTED WITH A HARSH

JUDGMENTAL ATTITUDE.

A PROSECUTORIAL MIND SET AND

I DON'T MEAN THE JUST THE

GOVERNMENT. I MEAN THE PEOPLE.

IF YOU USE PLASTIC BAGS WE'RE

GOING TO CALL THE NEIGHBORS.

THE HOME SCHOOLINGLY FOUND

TROUBLE FROM THE START.

THE HIND DUE -- WHATEVER.

CHRISTIANS BOO.

IT'S A NANNY STATE MENTALITY

IF YOU'RE NOT RAISING THEM THE

WAY WE THINK YOU SHOULD BE WE

WILL TAKE THEM AWAY.

I FOUND IT OPPRESSIVE AND

SCARY AND THE PROSECUTION FLOWS

PERSECUTION.

AND THEY ARE LEAVING AS SOON

AS THEY CAN RETIRE PERHAPS TO

THE LONE STAR STATE.

CALIFORNIA IS LOSING

EMPLOYERS TO TEXAS. I WANT TO

SEE WHY.

LAWMAKERS SAY THEY'RE

THEY'RE

ANTI-PROBUSINESS.

THE AVERAGE BUSINESS IS HIT

FOR $134,000 PER YEAR IN

COMPLIANCE COST TO COMPLY WITH

THE REGULATIONS OF CALIFORNIA.

DOZENS OF COMPANIES ARE

CONSIDERING PACKING UP AND

LEAVING. DOZENS ALREADY HAVE.

AS WE HAVE BEEN HERE IN

CALIFORNIA FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS

WE HEARD ABOUT BUSINESSES

PULLING UP STAKES RIGHT NOW.

WE

FOUND ONE BUSINESS IN SHINER

TEXAS OWNED BY JOHN HARRINGTON

AND CALIFORNIA INFURIATED HE

HAD

TO LEAVE. HE HAD A GUN

BUSINESS

AND THREE STRIKES TO MANY.

A BUSINESS IS A NECESSARY E

JILL IN CALIFORNIA AND A GUN

BUSINESS IS PLAIN E JILL AND A

CHRISTIAN IN THE BUSINESS IS AN

ENEMY OF THE STATE PRACTICALLY.

HE WAS CHARACTERIZED AS

UNENLIGHTENED.

I GOT DEATH THREATS "KILL

YOURSELF WITH YOUR GUN. I HOPE

SOMEBODY KILLS YOU".

HE SAYS HE LOVES BEING BACK

IN TEXAS AND PROGUN, PRO

BUSINESS AND PROFREEDOM.

BARACK OBAMA DOESN'T CREATE

JOBS. I DO AND TEXAS GETS THAT?

TEXAS HAS CREATED A MILLION

JOBS AND CALIFORNIA HAS LOST

HALF A MILLION AND 680,000

PEOPLE MOVED FROM OTHER STATES

TO TEXAS. 185,000 OF THEM FROM

CALIFORNIA.

IT BETTER BE THE FUTURE OF

AMERICA BECAUSE FRANKLY I DON'T

SEE HOW THE COUNTRY CAN PROSPER

IF IT'S NOT MORE LIKE TEXAS AND

LESS LIKE CALIFORNIA.

WE CAME BACK TO TEXAS FOR

FREEDOM. SIMPLE WORD.
