    Dope that off and your state does like Colorado.
    State GOP's would be very wise to do that. Many of these people who are fleeing are fleeing the expense, w/o stopping to think of what causes such expenses.
    I've only had two beers in dog years.


    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
    It is difficult only for the others.
    It is the same when you are stupid.

    An avalanche of Californians has changed that.

    We need to reach out to transplants.
    It continues to move left. Sadly, Denver and Boulder control the state.

    I moved from Illinois, another state with a mass exodus. It is very difficult to find a U-Haul trailer. I had to travel an hour to find a trailer, the last one within a 3 hour drive!

    Based on your posts on here probably not. I don't know you personally. All I do know is that Californians moving to Montana tend to move to our cities and turn our purple cities dark blue. I've never met a conservative Californian certainly not in the cities. In my never so humble opinion all the Blue Staters can do leaving their crapy states is make all the other states crapy.

    Communism/Socialism is a religion and Blue Staters are not going to give up their religion/faith any more than a Christian would give up their religion/faith.

    I'm one of those Californians you've NEVER meet & I'll pass/die in the same state I was born in. Incidentally do you always read a book by its cover? Since your convinced that Californians are this or that - leave this book alone.


    The Mountains of California

    John Muir tackles the stunning California mountains in this sensitive, poetic tribute. A preservationist and environmental philosopher, his words ring with sincerity in their celebration of California’s natural beauty. From Yosemite Valley to Kings Canyon, Sequoia Groves to Mount Whiskey, Muir transports readers to the landscape that defines California.
