North Koreans flee to China. East Germans fled to West Germany. Cubans flee to Florida.

We recently reported that 33,000 people fled socialist Illinois in the past year, and some 247,410 people left Illinois over the past decade, taking some $13.7 billion with them. Illinoians are some of the most heavily-taxed people on earth.

Now Forbes magazine has reported that since socialist Gov. Jerry Brown was sworn in as governor of California, 243,099 people have fled California for other states, taking $7.794 billion with them.
