Just wanting to get some ideas here. I live in central CA and have wanted to get out for MANY years (you can ask my wife). You always hear that as CA goes, so goes the nation. Well at last count, CA is screwed!! I hear of business leaving by the droves, morality has been chucked out the window, etc. I don't want to be caught when this ship goes under. There are still a few sane ones in CA, and I think we are all trying to escape, lol. Any ideas on where to move in the country? Texas is definitely on my radar because of the mindset of not taking crap from anyone especially the government. Any input would be interesting to hear. Oh yeah, I am also in my late 30's and never really had a set "career" and wanting to better my family with news of our first kid on the way. Where is the economy still going strong and friendly to running your own business. Any input would be great. Thanks all.
