Some states have done away with the income tax in lieu of higher property taxes. Some have lower sales taxes in exchange for higher property taxes. Having higher property taxes makes it "easier" to deduct federal, so some point to that as a good thing.
The problem with California and other Democratic utopias is that they tax everything to the f*cking maximum. They think people and companies will just stay because they agree with all the socialist bull shite.
But, people stop believing in this socialist bull shite when they find out that they are the ones who have to pay to keep Odumbf*ck voters happy and content on the government dole.
I have a friend from grad school whom I hadn't spoken to in a while. He was one of the many outspoken liberals in our class. I recently had lunch with him and I was surprised to learn that he couldn't stand Odumbf*ck and had become a republican. I asked what did it. He said that after he saw HOW MUCH they were taking out of his paycheck every two weeks and realized that he was the one paying for all this bullsh!t he pedaled in school, he converted. He finally realized that all of Odumbf*cks "FREE SH!T" isn't free -- someone has to pay for it. And that someone was him.
