The latest published data from the 2010 census show how people are moving from place to place within the United States. In general, people are voting with their feet against places where the liberal, welfare-state policies favored by the intelligentsia are most deeply entrenched.
When you break it down by race and ethnicity, it is all too painfully clear what is happening. Both whites and blacks are leaving California, the poster state for the liberal, welfare-state, and nanny-state philosophy.
Whites are also fleeing the liberal welfare states in the northeast, like Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, as well as the same kinds of states in the Midwest, such as Michigan, Ohio, and Illinois.
Although California has long been a prime destination of Asian immigrants and the homes of their descendants, the 2010 census shows a striking increase in the Asian American population of Nevada, more than in any other state. Nevada is adjacent to California but has no income tax, nor the hostile climate for business that California maintains.
The movement of the black population — especially young, educated blacks — is the most striking of all.
