California’s population grew at the slowest pace in 120 years of the state’s history, with the Golden State adding a net 21,200 residents in fiscal year 2020.
The state’s minuscule growth is entirely from new births, with a massive exodus of California residents fleeing the declining state. A net total of 135,600 Californians left the state for greener pastures, a figure derived when accounting for departures weighed against new arrivals. The state increased its population by a meager 0.05%, a significant decline from 2019’s growth of .23%.
A halt in international movement played a role in California netting it lowest growth since the year 1900, with the state largely reliant on an inflow of illegal immigrant laborers to grow its population for decades. The coronavirus has also rendered a toll on the state, with major cities such as Los Angeles suffering the ongoing worst outbreak of the virus in the United States in November.
Major businesses have begun seeking an alternative to Silicon Valley, with megabillionaire Elon Musk recently leading a mass exodus of technology figures and companies to Texas. The Tesla CEO ripped the Democrat-dominated state as “entitled,” predicting that the power and influence of Silicon Valley would continue to decline.
The former middle class has led the way in packing up shop, with Silicon Valley tech billionaires largely replacing them in forming the state’s tax base. California ranks 48th in a state index of economic inequality, largely divided between the ultra-wealthy technology professional class and the urban poor.
California is on the verge of losing more residents than it gains, a phenomenon unprecedented in the once idyllic state’s history. The state was once the most inviting in the country, but decades of high taxes, astronomical housing prices, pro-illegal immigration laws and economic inequality have rendered their toll.
TEXIT: Texas House Member Introduces Bill That Would Allow Voters to Approve Secession
Texas state representative Kyle Biedermann (R-Fredericksburg) has introduced legislation that would put the question of secession to the people.
The legislation, House Bill 1359, would put a nonbinding referendum to Texas voters with the following question: “Should the legislature of the State of Texas submit a plan for leaving the United States of America and establishing an independent republic?”
To bolster his idea for secession, Biedermann is claiming that there are “indications that the Republic of Texas would not just survive, but thrive as an independent nation.”
“Voters of all political persuasions in Texas can agree on one thing, Washington D.C. is and has been broken,” Biedermann said in a press release.
“Our federal government continuously fails our working families, seniors, taxpayers, veterans and small business owners. For decades, the promises of America and our individual liberties have been eroding,” he continued.
“It is now time that the people of Texas are allowed the right to decide their own future. This is not a left or right political issue. Let Texans Vote!” Biedermann exclaimed.
Biedermann is acknowledging the grim situation that the country is in after President Trump failed to stop election fraud that ultimately resulted in President-imposed Joe Biden seizing the country. He was one of the many peaceful protesters who rallied for Trump on Jan. 6.
“The republic as we know it is dead. We all hoped that Trump would pull a rabbit out of his hat. We know the election was stolen,” he said during a virtual town hall last week with the Texas Nationalist Movement.
Biedermann’s efforts are beginning to spread to other states whose leaders are beginning to doubt the legitimacy of the federal government. Wyoming Republican Party chairman Frank Eathorne has spoken in positive terms of Biedermann’s nascent secession movement in Texas.
“We need to focus on the fundamentals. We are straight talking, focused on the global scene, but we’re also focused at home. Many of these Western states have the ability to be self-reliant, and we’re keeping eyes on Texas too, and their consideration of possible secession. They have a different state constitution than we do as far as wording, but it’s something we’re all paying attention to,” Eathorne said.
With biblical levels of corruption coming from the federal swamp in Washington D.C., more states are beginning to see a national break-up as a potential solution. The Founding Fathers would likely be jubilant at these developments.
