I'm getting the fuck out of California (whatever)

submitted ago by MyNameIsMud

Wife and I found a place in a other state that we can pay cash for right now. Its a no-brainer, either continue struggling here and waiting to catch a break or take control of my life and live somewhere where myself and my family can THRIVE. We're going to be out of here by the end of this month.

Whatever you do, don’t vote for fucking Democrats wherever you end up. The exodus from California is destroying my home state right now. Don’t be part of the problem.

[–] MyNameIsMud [S] 38 points (+38|-0) ago 

I've never voted Democrat in my life.

[–] Charilko 13 points (+13|-0) ago 

My experience with California refugees is that they tend to be a bit loopy. Good on you

[–] thelma 0 points (+0|-0) ago  (edited ago)

You should so you can run in their primaries ... act as a raging liberal and get elected.

It murdered Oregon in the 80s and 90s. Same with Washington.

Good job, man. THis is always the answer.

Fuck the rat race, it's for idiots.

[–] con77 13 points (+14|-1) ago 

and you can own a gun

[–] MyNameIsMud [S] 19 points (+19|-0) ago 

I already have a few, problem is with these CA laws is I think I'm technically a felon because I refuse to neuter my AR's. And I illegally conceal carry here too because I haven't got my permit. Gun laws had alot to do with the state we are moving to! Both those issues will be solved simply by getting the fuck out.

[–] con77 10 points (+10|-0) ago 

I carry 24/7. even in my home. someone breaking into my house aint leaving vertically

[–] con77 10 points (+10|-0) ago 

good for you. im sure the bloods, crips, mex mafia, and triads all obey the gun laws.

[–] fuckinghell 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Might not be the best idea to admit that on a public forum.

It's probably fine, but you can never be too careful.

[–] Plavonica 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Gun laws had alot to do with the state we are moving to!

That's a big consideration for me. I like not needing to get a CCW to carry. It's like begging permission to exercise a natural right.

[–] coinphrase 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

You can also own a gun in California.

[–] con77 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

What Cal has done to AR's is a crime.

[–] Mooncrickets 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

You can own some guns that are on the approved list as long as they are appropriately neutered to CA standards.

[–] Plant_Boy 11 points (+11|-0) ago 

California, beautiful state. Shame about the people.

[–] BaBs14 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

Did this 2 months ago myself. Fuck CA

[–] sakuramboo 6 points (+7|-1) ago 

I just had a date last Sunday and I had mentioned how I would never move to California. She was surprised and asked why, which I then told her about the near decriminalization of theft below $950, how it's no longer a felony to knowingly transmit HIV to someone else, and how San Francisco is just one giant shit hole. She was quite shocked how she never heard about this and agreed with me by the end of the date that California isn't even worth a trip.

[–] BlackSheepBrouhaha 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Visit the National Parks.

[–] KingChem 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Yea california has some of the most stunning national parks and even state parks there are.

[–] MyNameIsMud [S] 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Certain parts are. There is alot of wilderness here that people don't go anywhere close to. Those hold the treasures of California that remain largely unknown to most people.

[–] sakuramboo 1 points (+3|-2) ago 

Like wildfires. Definitely a treasure of California.

[–] Vvswiftvv17 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Welcome to the club! You are going to love it! My husband and I made the same decision a year ago this week. We can't buy a house until Oct because we filed bankruptcy on $200K worth of cancer medical debt (thanks Obummer) before leaving CA. BUT, besides medical debt we had a ton of friends and family debt. We paid it all off (nearly $20K) this year, rented a 3 bed 2 bath house, and aquired a minivan. (Besides taking three mini vacations, and putting our kids in lots of extracurricular activities). You can improve your situation and quality of life quickly outside of Commiefornia.

[–] MyNameIsMud [S] 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

That sounds amazing! I am very happy for you guys! My wife and I have nothing but positive feelings about all this.

[–] Vvswiftvv17 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Good luck!

[–] Fetalpig 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

I did it 8 months won't regret it. Waited till the entire family was on board. We have thrived outside of Cali. The grandkids have done so great. The things we have managed to pull off in months is astounding,homes,cars,jobs...never would of happened in California we are not the correct color,and have work ethic. The move have joined our family in ways I never thought possible.Even the siblings that fought,are getting along and helping each other out.

[–] BeefBourgignon 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

All three generations of your family moved to a new spot? That's pretty old school! I like that.

[–] QuiteEasilyAmused 3 points (+3|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Sell your pistols private party for a killing if they are ones which cannot be bought. I made almost 30k on pistols selling to my neighbors before I left San Diego, and then spent around 3k to buy them back after I moved back to America.

[–] MyNameIsMud [S] 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

All my pistols were acquired while I lived in CA. I'm just wondering what I'm going to do with all these worthless 10 round mags....

[–] QuiteEasilyAmused 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Just because they were acquired in CA does not mean they are currently legal to buy anymore. I recommend at least looking.

[–] slevin_kelevra 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

About time. Good luck.

[–] eronburr 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I excelled at math but never realized how many excuses I made for opting for a job that paid 50% more but cost of living was 100% more. I just insisted on "making it" in NY because my parents did. Ignoring how much help they had from their parents, which I didn't, and how much easier the economy was for them.

[–] bushka 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

And our parents mortgages were $65 a month instead of $1600 for the same house.

[–] TheWheelofTime 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I applaud people moving out of states like CA and Michigan. What I fucking hate is even though they have been driven away due to overpopulation, over taxation, crime and rampant homelessness they continue to vote Democrat or for neo cons. Move away, get yourselves a better life, work hard and responsibly own a firearm. Please don't move to states like TX, TN, GA, AL, etc and go there and vote in sanctuary cities.

[–] tragicwhale 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

What state did you move too? I'm ready to get the fuck outa here as well. Don't worry, I'll be voting anything but democrat, all red. Fucking state with its voter fraud and bullshit home prices.

[–] Crikes 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Good for you! Congrats!

It's hard to overestimate value of location and community.

[–] CRKT_M16Z 2 points (+2|-0) ago

Also, I like Primus too.

Primus sucks! I'll miss the plethora of Primus shows that pop up in California. That was always nice, seeing them 3 to 6 times per year haha.

Brother! Good on you. You headed north or east?

[–] MyNameIsMud [S] 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

North, to Idaho.

[–] Toomanydelaccounts 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Be careful. Idaho has seen a crazy boom of Californians doing the same thing and they’re already starting to affect the loca political situation. UT and TX have the same thing going on. I’m hearing TN as well due to people on the east coast.

I got out and went to another state and have been doing great. It’s a very freeing feeling to openly talk politics with people instead of trying to hide in plain sight so your vehicle doesn’t get fucked up or someone doesn’t start screaming at you cause you offended them.

[–] chubsta 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

such a shame what has happened to california. i live in th uk and we have our problems too, but for the majority it has always been pretty poor here. what i remember seeing california on tv as a kid made it seem like a paradise, and i guess for a while in the 50s and early 60s it probably was. just goes to show what liberalism and diversity can do to a wonderful place in a very short time. how anyone could ever look at the california of 50 years ago and say it is a better place now i don’t understand, yet this still happens, you still see reports about how wonderful it is to have such diverse and vibrant cities as san francisco, when the reality is they are like hell on earth

[–] nrlftw 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Me too! Spitting up time between two different states. I can actually afford to do that with the money I'll be saving. Voting Red every opportunity I can.

[–] watchers 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

i'll hold the flag...i will not be driven from my birthplace by liberals.

[–] MyNameIsMud [S] 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

You have my full support. I wanted to stay and fight but it's simply become too expensive.

[–] watchers 1 points (+1|-0) ago  (edited ago)

i can't really blame you. the exodus is real. what happens when all the people that actually pay taxes leave?

you can probably fly to vegas and rent a truck for less than it costs to rent one in california. last i checked, renting in california is 10x what it costs elsewhere, because everyone is leaving and nobody is bringing the trucks back.

[–] Gargilius 1 points (+2|-1) ago 

Dude, I am right behind you!

random question : is it possible to get you car registered to your new state before leaving? I’d rather avoid driving across the country with California license plates if I can avoid it...

[–] Vvswiftvv17 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Don't speed and you will be fine. We did it. But the biggest hardon I got was when the CA DMV kept sending me warning notices that my car could be impounded because I didn't continue registration. I sent three different "we moved bitches" forms. They still didn't get it. I heard from others they had similar problems.

[–] Gargilius 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

...I also have to work out a gun friendly itinerary: may be there is a better way (fedex or something?) but I was thinking of driving with what I wouldn’t entrust to movers (guns and musical instruments...)

[–] bushka 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Maybe they'll send you absentee ballots.

[–] MyNameIsMud [S] 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Probably, if you have an address to register it to I don't see why not.

This faggot just posted 4 months ago saying he was "staying to fight for california". I told him to get the fuck out, and was attacked in the comments for being a pussy and not staying to fight for that shit hole state. Check it out here:

I have been planning to move out of this shitty state as soon as I can, preferably somewhere like Nevada, Idaho, or Montana. But now I think I am going to stay and try to fight for my state. If ICE can keep deporting beaners, and fags and niggers keep killing each other with AIDS and bullets, then eventually we will have a chance at taking this magnificent state back. I've found a large piece of land in the mountains that I am going to buy and use to establish my life and home base here in California. With Hollywood pedos being outed left and right I think we can get rid of quite a few jews too. It there are other white people on the fence about leaving, stay. Stay and fight with me to make California a laughing stock or the nation no more! Also, Patrick Little for president 2020!

This guy is a liar, or a hypocrite. Fucking idiots here on voat.

[–] olltre 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

people are not allowed to hange their mind? OP said an opportunity came his way so obviously his situation changed from 4 months ago. California is such a beautiful state in some ways it really is hard to leave and I can see why people would deep down want to try and make it work out and hope for the best but then you realize its realistically only gonna get worse.

[–] Mooncrickets 1 points (+1|-0) ago  (edited ago)

He changed his mind and now agrees you were right. Why are you upset about that? It’s a good time to say, “I told you so!”

Not, “I’m still butthurt you didn’t agree with me 4 months ago!”

[–] Vvswiftvv17 0 points (+1|-1) ago 

Seriously? Grow up. Circumstances change all the time. He is manning up and taking care of his family which is his #1 priority. If you want to save CA take your ass there and do your best hot shot.

Probably no need to tell a goat, but when you see how “backward” and “unenlightened” their society is, remember theirs is sustainable: California’s is not.

More often than not the “new and better approach” is neither of those things.

Prepare to be hated. Californians fuck up all the states you move away to.

[–] throwaway52 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Yup. While I sympathize with OP, the truth of the matter is that most "Republicans" on the California ballot are hardcore leftist democrats anywhere else. They are the epitome of RINO. Commiefornians move to the South or Midwest, realize what true fucking conservatism means, and promptly start the demographic shift to the left. I've seen the same exact fucking situation play out dozens of times. "Oh HI, I'm such and such, just moved here from Cali. Who am I voting for, you ask? Why, whomever has an" R" next to their name on the ballot, silly! " - Later on -" Oh, who'd I vote for? Some woman named Abrams, that Kemp was just too Right - Wing for me... "

[–] puggy 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Arnold Schwatzinegger was the prime example - RINO married to a Kennedy cunt

[–] tragicwhale 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

You know, I have to agree with this as a Californian, my wife went to Texas and she said it's very true. A Texas Republican is a level she didn't know about until she went there. A California Republican is almost in no mans land but yes, don't go to a republican state and vote democrat which just fucks shit up.

[–] MyNameIsMud [S] 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Once they meet us they will know we aren't stereotypical Californians. I'm an American first anyways.

[–] MyNameIsMud [S] 7 points (+8|-1) ago 

I tried to stay and fight. If you knew me you would want me to stay. I'm taking my family to white civilization, and I wish it were here but it's not.

[–] clamhurt_legbeard 1 points (+4|-3) ago 

It sounds like you did. Just based on your other post talking about how you handle the unconstitutional restrictions, I can already say you're EXACTLY the kind of person I want staying in California.

Gotta have as many defending our rights as we can.

[–] Thrus2 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Sometimes the best way to fight a battle is not from an isolated point in the middle but by moving out and then coming back in. sometimes a situation needs to be pushed over the breaking point or allowed to fall over it before a true solution can be brought to it. It isn't the best solution but reality rarely gives us the best case scenario. Sometimes for the "good guys" to finally step up they need to see that the other side is "bad guys" and not just "not good guys".

[–] clamhurt_legbeard 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

The fewer good guys around, the less likely good wins.

I will never celebrate or advise good guys leaving.

[–] gentronseven -1 points (+0|-1) ago  (edited ago)

What the hell is he going to do, kill a politician and be sent to prison? The politician will just be replaced with another communist.

For every American in California, there is at least one foreigner. The fight is over in California, unless you can get a mob large enough to start the killing.

[–] Goat-Master-5000 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

As evil as they are, the politicians aren't our true rulers anyway. Politicians are just MIDDLE MEN. I keep saying this over and over again. Politicians are NOT the true globalist ruling class; politicians are blackmailed servants working for the true ruling class.

If you want to kill evil, by shooting an evil and slimy politician.....then your gun is still aiming too LOW on the (((globalist))) hierarchy.

[–] MyNameIsMud [S] 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

My ideals align with that of the general population of your state, hence why we picked it. I voted every chance I could. This place was fucked before I could even start voting.

[–] TheWheelofTime 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

What ideas? I applaud the responsible gun ownership but I am so sick of open borders, sanctuary city, invite all the homeless in CA liberals in my state. This may not be aimed at you so don't take offense if this isn't the case with you specifically but how hard is it to understand if you invite almost 7 billion other people in there will be over crowding? If you invite all the homeless in and feed them you're going to get streets that smell like shit and piss.

Idaho. Any of those states on your list except Minnesota would have done as well.
